WORDPLAY post #198 

"The Kiss"
ée Rodin, Paris 
SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, September 2019, with verses sequentially accumulated. 

Today's verses have also been web-published at OEDILF.coman online humor dictionary that has accumulated  120,000 carefully edited limericks. 
As limerick-writers are often tempted to dive into the baser spheres of human life, the dictionary has a 'curtained room', accessible only to online members, presumably flagging that the designated verses may not be suitable for children. On his own recognizance, Giorgio has selected the following verses from OEDILF's 'Curtained Room', based on their  requiring only 'light curtaining', and taken the risk of offending some readers by publishing them on this otherwise sedate, and arguably family-oriented blog.

WARNING: The following verses may not be suitable for all ages. Those under 15 or over 85 are advised to read the following content only with the permission and supervision of an adult family member.  


Authors' Note: 

oy gevalt (oy-guh-VULT): phrase borrowed from Yiddish; an exclamation expressing shock, surprise or disapproval

schadenfreude (SHA-den-froi-duh, or as here, sha-den-FROI-duh): loanword from German; taking delight in others' misfortune
