Posted:How about the Limerick Juggling Convention Juggling Limerick Convention, or LJCJLC for short.

a re-working of the canonical 'Skinner'

A handsome and virile young spinner
was taking a lady to dinner.
Said she: "show me a trick"
but his moves were so quick,
that ere she knew aught it was in her
(the dinner, not the spinner - the spinner'd been in her before dinner)
