BAILOUT | Limericks

I reported on Huffington Post that Bailout was the Word of the Year of the American Dialect Society

To which LimerickSavant posted:
So "bail-out" was Word of the Year?
As a verb, we expected to hear
It used one of the times
When, for myriad crimes,
Those crooks went to court to appear!
To which I responded:
The reason I cry in my beer
Is the trillions of bailouts, I fear.
They'll add up too soon
And stretch to the moon,
We may wish that we had them still near.
