Titter Ye

The limericks you see here all started life on Twitter – love it or hate it. Here’s my response to today’s hashtag – #WhyIJoinedTwitter.  

I had some spare time I could fritter/

Attempting to make people titter,/

Reporting our times/

In limerick rhymes -/

That’s pretty much

The word ‘titter’ flummoxed at least one North American (?) tweeter, so may be specifically Brit. It’s notable not least from the comedian Frankie Howerd’s catchphrase ‘Titter Ye Not’.
