A limerick a week #256

Oh look – it’s raining

Some words that came to mind on a fleeting visit to the English Lake District where it started lashing it down on first sight of the fells…

Nuff said!

The Lake District has what it takes
For holidays, trips and short breaks
But try not to frown
When it’s pi***ng it down
Cos it’s the rain that makes all the lakes


Postscript: the ‘Bergen’ joke (also applicable to the English Lake District):

Tourist. Hey, tell me, does it always rain in Bergen?

Bergen resident: I don’t know, I’m only 35
