Another Man In An Iron Mask?

There once was a wrestler from Hay
whose face was so ugly, they say,
that people would ask
that he wear a black mask
to hide his poor physog away.

Thanks to Tess for her Magpie Marvel this week..

  2. Great limerick. I ONLY write limericks (usually) when I'm with a group of writer friends, we've been drinking, and we decide to write round-robin limericks. A very unique Magpie for the mask...

  3. Oh Jinksy I like the light side. I don't care for African masks, although I do have one, I only keep it because the wood is so beautiful.

  12. Wonderful! (I don't think 'physog' translates to American. "Mug' does not have the gravitas!) haha!

  19. Dear Jinksy: Yes, masks do mask the man and his uggy "psyogs". The KISS lead singer must have him beat! Fun limerick..I'm gonna try one of those!

  23. Margaret - I think I’ve been making him sweat under the collar ever since I ‘met’ him in Blogland! He is a worthy opponent for a spot of jousting fun. This time we chose Limericks At Dawn! LOL
