A few days back, I had posted about this fun exercise being run on Caferati. As part of that thread, my friend Gautami posted this limerick about me :-)
What have we done to deserve this?
Why do you write news limericks, sis?
So dull and boring
Sending you to Siberia will be a bliss!
The post ruffled my Bengali pride. Siberia indeed! Did she not know that when it comes to cold climates, we Bongs have the ultimate ensemble for keeping warm? I simply could not let this go unanswered ...
Madam, you may get the thrills,
Thinking I'll get the Siberian chills,
But boots, gloves, coat, shawl,
(And a monkey-cap atop it all),
I, a Bong, have great 'cold-battling' skills!
