President Joe Biden plans to spend Thanksgiving with his family in Nantucket, a small island off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and the inspiration for a limerick that dates back to at least the early 1900s. There’s many different versions of the dirty poem, but they all begin the same way, “There once was a man from Nantucket…”
That’s also what Ted Cruz tweeted when he saw where the president will celebrate the holiday next week. It was a confusing reply because, as many on Twitter pointed out, the Texas senator is implying that Biden is the man from Nantucket and therefore has a… how to put this? Remember what Shailene Woodley said about Aaron Rodgers? That.
“Does Ted Cruz know what the man from Nantucket limerick is about? Because he basically tweeted that Joe Biden has big d*ck energy,” @AngryBlackLady tweeted. “I just feel like that’s probably not the message he was going for. Poor little f*cker is not funny and he tries so hard.” @renegadecut added, “Nothing to see here, everyone. It’s only Senator Ted Cruz implying that the President is so well-endowed that he can suck his own d*ck.” Others wondered, doesn’t Ted Cruz have better things to do than tweet dirty jokes about the president? And some replied with limericks of their own.
Ted Cruz criticizes Biden for going to Nantucket for Thanksgiving
Cruz fled to the Ritz in Cancun amid a deadly power grid failure, left his dog to freeze, blamed his daughters, incited the insurrectionists, attacked Big Bird, blocked nat’l security noms

There once was a man from Texas
Once things got tough he left us
He fled all the way to Cancun
I hope he’s voted out of Congress soon https://t.co/qnWRfPXY7M

Who didn’t run off to Cancun while his state kicked the bucket.
Because unlike old’ Ted
His decency was more than a shred
And sniveling cowards from Texas can suck it. https://t.co/cYKfGuEbKd

A loathsome old fellow named Ted
Loved Donald, a creep who once said,
“Your wife’s face is whack,
Your papa killed Jack,”
And Cruz followed wherever he led. https://t.co/zTKlXvUTok

There once was a man who ran off to Cancun who frequently shows he is a buffoon. He spends zero time doing his work and constantly resembles a jerk. For all us Texans he can’t be gone too soon. https://t.co/C6ItueGGBU

As Ted Cruz saw bad weather and ducked it.
To Cancun he then flew
While his district froze blue
And he looked at his dog and said f**k it. https://t.co/LUqETAEP1H

There once was a Republican goon
When it snowed he skipped off to Cancun
He kept smiling smugly
As Trump called his wife ugly
He’ll be President when I land on the moon https://t.co/sFcVOqRalB

At least he’s not tweeting about Big Bird anymore?
