WordplayI learned a new word today. That's so unusual that I want to announce it. Madeleine Begun Kane, a humorist and song parodist who calls herself and her humor blog Mad Kane, sent out this limerick today:
Ruthless LimerickRuthless means lacking in compassion, and ruth is a noun meaning compassion for another. I wrote about ruth and rue on my word blog earlier, if you want to have a laugh or two. Rueful? It means "expressing sorrow or regret, especially when in a slightly humorous way." I'm not at all rueful.
by Madeleine Begun Kane
A dentist who’s lacking in ruth
Worships money, possessions, and youth.
In his quest for all three,
His crimes guarantee
He’ll be jailed until long in the tooth.
