Not Just Limericks

The University of Texas Limerick Committee article reminded me of our graduate student double-dactyl committee in the 1960s at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Here is the one that has never left my memory:

Higgeldy Piggeldy,

David A. Eckerman,


Couldn’t go wrong.

Faced with the problem

Of getting his P-h-D,

Rigged up a pigeon key

Nine inches long.
