When A City Falls Below The Limit

City officials in Limerick, Ireland are concerned that a census taken following the local rugby team's Dublin appearance could cause the absence of thousands of fans. If more than 4000 or so are not counted Limerick would fall below the threshold for some funding sources.

There once was a man from the sticks
Who loved to write Lim'ricks
But he failed at the sport
For he wrote them too short
