Scant rhyme, no reason

Wednesday, December 10, 2008 | 2 comments »

After the mewling success of a BM limerick earlier this year about commissioner Kallas (it rhymes with 'phallus', *snicker*), which triggered literally an avalanche of no responses, belatedly here are two more, devoted to two more of our glorious leaders (ones with names that rhyme more easily. You try rhyming 'Piebalgs' for fuck's sake).

That Reding's a ghoulish old spectre,
As scary as Hannibal Lecter.
With brimstone and hellfire,
And her gimp Martin Selmayr,
She's the scourge of the telecoms sector.


Commissioner Antonio Tajani
Has a dark secret life as a tranny.
They say he's convincing
With make-up and mincing,
Just a shame that he hasn't a fanny.

It was at this point that 'Monster aborted the admittedly ambitious attempt at eviscerating the entire College of Commissioners in verse. Should any BM reader care to take up the plume, servez-vous...

    How about this bad boy? I'm sure you will agree that it is the finest ever limerick about everyone's favourite Commissioner.

    Lithuanian Dalia Grybauskaité
    Used to turn up for work in her nightie
    Boss Barroso despaired
    So he finally prepared…
    … a mobilisation of the Flexibility Instrument to permit the financing of clearly identified expenditure which could not be financed within the limits of the ceilings available for one or more headings of the multiannual financial framework.

    That Reding one is classic
