Readership Drop; Limerick

Well as I expected my mysogynistic post yesterday has resulted in readership dropping almost to zero.

So here today — some people have said they like them — is another limerick about an animal. We have reached ‘P’:

‘Are we in the church or the zoo, Ma?’
‘Hush, dear! You must learn to humour
Such populist features
As “Blessing of Creatures”.’
‘But in the next pew, Ma — a Puma!’

I was unable to find a picture of a puma in a church, but here is a pair of them. A web search for pictures of these splendid beasts is complicated by the fact that ‘Puma’ is the name of some spectacularly ugly shoes.
