Shu's word for the next limerick game is Kohler, Wisconsin. We have spent many a weekend at the wonderful American Club in Kohler. Here is their story - 130 years ago they provided immigrants with a place to stay while they worked at the Kohler factory. Today, those rooms have become a fabulous hotel, and of course it has grown and grown. They now have a world class golf course and much more. When we first started going, the rooms were $99/night. It's much more than that now, to be sure.

So - Kohler it is!

I've taken many a poop in Kohler toilets. They also build small engines which used to be excellent. Now they more resemble their crappers.

In Toto, I have no Kohlers: I have a potty for baby food; I have Gerbers! (Really!)

I meant "measly" by I only had one. Sorry, Geoffrey!

I now have three measly limericks. Come on, folks. The more the merrier! And, Greg, if you are tuning in, we'd like one from you. I know that Sattva has been under the weather, but how about Bethree? Bob? Proof? Who else?

What syllable is stressed in Kohler? Sometimes, I am not sure that I can tell.

B35 and Sattva, glad to see you're both on the mend!!! I was ill for a month with a respiratory virus on top of my usual asthma. Such fun! I've found that breathing is not an option

KO-ler is how I've always heard it.

Yay, Sattva! Good to see you. I am hoping you'll be able to write one. Kohler rhymes with molar.

I've received some good ones, not a lot, but that's okay.

I'll wait a few more days. Got yours Bethree. Thanks!

I scent another stinker, but it ended up in Sheboygan.

(To pre-empt any thought of using Sheboygan as our next challenge, let me use up the available rhymes here and now)

Is the r sounded? Because in my accent molar rhymes with cola but I'm guessing that's not true for you. Could you provide the IPA?

Since I don't drink IPA, I'll only say that the "r" in Kohler is sounded as the "r" in "ready." But really, Bob, does it matter? Your accent may produce better rhymes!

I agree. I saw a couple of videos where it was pronounced different from what Kalleh said, more like rhyming with sir at the end instead of molar. Should we just be more lenient? Btw, I don't know if I will finish any. I have spent every day this week either in dialysis or at a doctor's and I just haven't felt like doing much of anything but listening to books and talks.

Sorry to hear you're still doing so poorly, but happy to see you here!

I hope you can come up with one!

Yes, Bob, we will be lenient.

I have 8 now. Sattva, I'll give it until tomorrow night, hoping you can come up with something. But if you can't, maybe next time? And you can vote anyway.
