Tanorexic Limerick

Patricia Krentcil – “Tan Mom”

Tanorexic Limerick

a young daughter was taken to tan
at a salon with a monthly pay plan
as the girl took her turn
she sustained quite a burn
now mom could spend time in the state can

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. Having been away from my blog for awhile, I decided to pay a few visits…and came across this. There are no words to describe that, poor, batty woman!! What in the world is she thinking?! (Mouth hanging open).

  2. And, she probably thinks she looks good!

  3. Isn’t that just awful!
    No, I haven’t heard of Sons of anarchy at all. Thankfully, there was no more drama at her school today.

    Does she really think that tan looks good or is healthy? She denies letting her daughter tan, but look at her! Is she credible?

  5. Haha. This makes me giggle how you write it.

    unbelieveable- there should be a test before folks can have kids- what a moron
    and what a great limerick. Also-thanks for visiting my blog. Cheers!

    But the stupidity of the situation … lower end of the gene pool decision maker.

  9. Bizarre story, so bizarre…

  10. I recognized “Tan Mom” even from the tiny linky thumbnail! My ABC Wednesday this week is Topsy.

  11. Oh this is just sick. Hard for me to wrap my mind around this kind of behavior.

  12. If tanning result would look like that, no one should even think of doing one.

  13. Tanning is really, really dumb but your limerick was pretty good 🙂

  14. LOL what an TERRIBLE idea for beauty!
