The Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form

(I'm stealing shamelessly from Boing Boing today)

The Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form is a project to write a limerick for every word in the English language.They are currently accepting submissions for aa- to ba-. A sample:

The apostrophe's often abused:
It gets battered, and bruised, and misused.
On a plural, a blight;
For possessives, just right,
Barring "its", which leaves people confused.

I have to admit, I'm amused by this concept. And the apostrophe limerick is clever.
