I’ve never been a big fan of limericks, but this book’s title caught my attention. Upon closer inspection, I realized that Isaac Asimov (prolific sci-fi and fantasy writer) was a co-author and not only that, but he was battling another dude with dirty limericks. Whaaaaat? I’m in.

Limericks: Too Gross|Bookspotting

My brain must be in the gutter because I enjoyed these. This one’s for the pervs out there.

I innocently read a ton of Shel Silverstein as a kid, and it wasn’t until I grew up that I realized that his stories were actually about so many other things (kinda like how The Giving Tree is really about a one-sided, emotionally abusive, relationship), and The Missing Piece Meets The Big O is no different. No, it’s not about THAT big O, but it is about shitty relationships and self-reliance, which is cool.

 

Basically, there’s this triangle shape feeling all lonely-like, and it thinks it can get love, satisfaction, and/or fulfillment from these O’s it meets, but life isn’t like that.

It meets some weirdos and narcissists along the way…

But ultimately it realizes that it has to move on with life by itself.

I won’t spoil the ending, but it ends just like you would expect it to.

Riveting, I know.

What books did you spot out in the universe today? Tell me, because honestly, I feel like people don’t even care about reading anymore, sometimes, so I really enjoy hearing stories about the written word.
