General Question

Would you contribute to a rhyming A to Z children's book just for fun?

Asked by seazen_ (4801points) April 20th, 2011

The only conditions, besides the rhyme-scheme, are: start with a noun, then write something truthful and perhaps curiously silly, or funny and witty – that a child would instantly get.

You do not have to wait for the jelly below you to finish and there can be multiple letter submissions – it doesn’t matter.

I’ll begin:

A is for Armadillo
A curious animal indeed;
It rolls safely into a ball
Whenever it feels the need.
