There was a young lad from Japan whose verses they never would scan When he was asked why he said, with a sigh "Darn it all, I just can't help trying to get as many words as I possibly, possibly can in the last line."
April Fools! This limerick was recited by Psycho-Criminologist Carl Palmberg (Theodore Bikel) to Barbara Graham (Susan Hayward) in the based-on-fact I Want to Live! (Robert Wise, 1958). Graham was on death row at the time, so cramming as much as possible into the "last line" took on added meaning.
