Guest: Chris. J. Strolin, Creator of the Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick form, www.oedilf.com There are people who love to read the dictionary.  But for most of us, the dictionary would be a lot more interesting reading if all the word definitions were in the form of limericks. And this dictionary – we recently learned – actually exists. It's called "The Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form." It's a website - a little tongue-in-cheek, to be sure. But it's got nearly 100,000 limerick definitions of words.
