Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Negative space/Hoosier/ Completed limerick


Thanks so much for the excellent limerick

About 40 miles from where I live there is a nuclear power  plant near a town 
called Limerick

The power plant is called the "Limerick Generating Station"

I have this image that instead of electricity, the plant is spewing out all 
kinds of delightfully naughty little poems.

change of subject-

I went  to Butler University in Indianapolis for a year and half, does that 
mean that I am sort of a Hoosier?
