The Ecphorizer

The Nosoboom
Gareth Penn

Issue #58 (September 1986)

Upon its many noses
With its child, into the room,
Like hurdler Edwin Moses,
There leaps the Nosoboom.

And Webster and you'll find
(Or even William Beebe)

Upon its many noses
(I just now said with whom),
Like hurdler Edwin Moses,
In leaps the Nosoboom.

GARETH PENN gained instant notoriety at the recent Mensa Asilomar Gathering as the originator of a hellishly contrived puzzle involving a jigsaw puzzle, a Latin anagram, etc. It took 500 Mensans more than 30 hours to solve it.
