Consider the charming, nubile Nan from Nantucket of an anonymous American limerick that first appeared in The Princeton Tiger in 1902.

Then the merchant went down to the market-place and he saw me standing in the crowd and he came to me and said, Why did you make a threatening gesture to my servant when you saw him this morning?To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.
