The Isle of Bute . . . in Limerick, although the Isle of Bute is in Scotland

There once was a braw man of Bute,
Who played on a silver-gilt flute;
His tunes were quite daring,
But his nudity glaring,
Which rendered his melodies moot.

— FAB Staffers

Today is National Limerick Day. Our limerick is partially inspired by the famous limerick writer Edward Lear. Please be advised, the lads of the Isle of Bute (Scotland) are almost never sitting around naked! Although some do play flutes, and it is a great summer holiday destination that just makes you want to strip off and be free.

And in case you missed them last week, Freshly Pressed featured a couple of excellent bookish posts we consider must reads: The Incredible Vanishing Paperweight went all fan on Stephen King and Reboot . . . again let slip his stationery obsession.
