The Flute Tutor - A Limerick by Carolyn Wells

A tutor who tooted the flute,
Was teaching two tooters to toot,
Said the two to the tutor,
"Is it harder to toot, or
To tutor two tooters to toot?"

  1. Brilliant use of words! This is one of the reasons this limerick has stood the test of time and has become so well known over the years. It uses a nuance of two words that rhyme with one word in a unique manner that few other limericks do.
