Purrfect Pun

In the age of cat videos, one comes across an apt little bit of verse from John S. Crosbie in Crosbie's Book of Punned Haiku. (New York: Workman Publishing, 1979).

There is nothing worse
Than poems about cute cats
It is all perverse.
If you think this is bad, I've seen worse — from Crosby himself — a haiku that ends limerick-like with "caramel knowledge."

And so for day 1962
