“Fear Strikes Out” Strikes Out

by Hilary Barta

To the wall, back he goes, with a twirl
Grabs the ball, strikes a pose, then the hurl
.     Though the term’s not “correct”
.     I’ll be firm and direct:
I’m appalled Perkins “throws like a girl”

Hilary Barta shares his obsessions of old movies and comics at his daily limerick site, LimerWrecks.

    From Perkins to Bendix to Cooper
    Their athletic prowess ain’t super
    The three sure can act
    but scenes with a bat
    belong on a reel titled “Blooper”

  2. Hilary Barta wrote,

    Ha!

  3. Michael X. Ferraro wrote,

    nice! Tim Robbins and Michael O’Keefe have also earned some grief.
