When asked to "provide some sort of reference" to aid a reader's of his Walter Brennan limerick, Limerwrecks writer Norm Knott made this reply:Y'see, Walter Brennan (from the 50s teevee show, "The Real McCoys") talks with a limpand fish by a buoy will generally, but not always, stalk shrimpThe whirlish was derved is a fanciful reference to Whirling Dervish, a religious sect found in Turkey, which was Walter Brennan's favorite food (see how this is all connecting?)Butterflies, known for their curiousness and appreciation of flight, move (swerve---a sort of partial whirl ---again---sense the connections?) from the path of a blimp that they gawk at with joyThe renown sandwich shoppe "Blimpies" began their business by serving shrimp sandwiches (I can sense that Aha! moment beginning to emerge in your mind---see how everything is all connected in a veneer of forced relationships? But doesn't dissecting things , except in Biology labs) tend to destroy the mystique, or in this case, mistake, of creativity?)It's probably best to remember that, like Chinatown, it's Dada, Jake, it's Dada!
