Annoy All Monsters!
The torch-bearing townsfolk beleaguer
Our monster, whose brain-power's meager
When asked why he crouches,
He meekly avouches,
"I don't want to appear over Ygor."
Boris Karloff as the monster and Bela Lugosi as Ygor in Son of Frankenstein (Rowland V. Lee, 1939). This is one of my favorites of David's limericks. He first posted it as a comment on an earlier Son of limerick, Rated X-Ray. Finding such gems buried in the comments, I knew David had to join our crew.
