A Double Limerick: On Einstein’s Theory of Relativity :

A Double Limerick:

On Einstein’s Theory of Relativity :

In High School Physics, I recall having studied Relativity. Relativity was a stunning concept and scientists all over the world debated the veracity of Einstein’s famous equation, E=mc2, which implied that matter and energy were equivalent and, more specifically, that a single particle of matter could be converted into a huge quantity of energy.

Now here is a novel interpretation of that equation from my collection. Hats off to the unknown composer.

E  N  J  O  Y!!

Said Einstein, “I have an equation
that some may think Rabelaisian.
Let V be virginity
approaching infinity
and P equal constant persuasion.

Now, let V over P be inverted
and the root of persuasion inserted
It is easy to see
the result, Q.E.D.
is a relative,” Einstein asserted.

EVOLUTION LIMERICK

EVOLUTION LIMERICK

When we were young we were taught that we had descended from monkeys.

Today monkeys teach their young ones. See how!!

EVOLUTION…REVOLUTION…RE-EVOLUTION?

Said an ape as he swung by his tail,

To his offspring both female and male,

 “From your offspring, my dears,

 In a couple of years,

 May evolve a professor at Yale.”

A Mathematical Limerick

A Mathematical Limerick

Image result for mathematical limerick

A dozen, a gross, plus a score

Plus three times the square root of four

Divided by seven

Plus five times eleven

Is nine squared (and not a bit more).

A Japanese Limerick

A Japanese Limerick

My next Limerick…..

Subject: A Japanese tries to compose a limerick but fails.

The reason? See for your self.

There was a young man of Japan

Whose limericks never would scan.

When they asked him, Why?

He said, with a sigh,

“It’s because I always try to get as many words into the last line as l can”

 Moral :

It is easier to manufacture a Japanese car than to compose a limerick!!
