There once was an actress called Carmen
Who they say danced  and drank down in Harlem
She wore a huge hat
Behind which nobody sat
'Coz its topping only distracted the barmen

    2. Ah had, you did did you?? Laughing......... actually Carmen Miranda came to mind as soon as I saw the picture - any other subject didn't get a look in!

      I like the header too. Makes me proud to be British! Going to change it for another in a minute.

  5. You must be really old (like me and Helen) to remember Carmen Miranda!
    Laughed at how you rhymed Carmen with 'barman'. Limerick at its best!
