I am terribly sorry to have been away for so long. I got stuck on the limerick to number 1143, then a couple more rushed by and before I knew which way was sideways, it was Christmas and I was off on my annual cruise with the Jumblies.
But now I am back. I have five limericks to post in short order, and I fully expect to have caught up with Mr XKCD before the end of the next Mayan calendar cycle.
Let the posting... BEGIN!
