for those looking for something to do for the rest of this and all subsequent lives
A reader from Nantucket, MA has alerted me to this site where one can join an intrepid band of rhymers trying to come up with limericks for every word in the OED. They are currently on ad- with many ab- and ac- words having thus far been skipped over, and with some wiseacre jumping the queue to be the one who gets to take care of "anal." At present, the generation of limerick-definiens is proceeding more slowly than the addition of new words to the OED, meaning that, without your help (as well as yours and yours and yours and yours), they will never ever get done.
