An Inconvenient Mistake of Fact

A fun play on words with Al Gore and algorithm.  (If you noticed, even the title is a play on words.)  I'm not the first to do it, but I am the first to write this limerick.  Enjoy!

Al created the algorithm

One late night as Tipper danced with him

The thought came by chance

As they freestyle danced

Initially dubbed "Al Gore Rhythm!"

Poetry notes:


Poetry form:  Free-Range Limerick

Al and Tipper Gore dancing in Tennesee in 1997 during happier times.

After all the buzz in 1999 about Al Gore creating the internet, I thought it would be fun to write a limerick about him creating the algorithm too!
