Champagne and tarts has turned out to be a good subject for limericks. Here is an update:
There once was a girl from champagne,
Whose kisses were like frangipane
Her tarts farinaceous
Just short of salacious
Declared her a demimondaine
Alan Maryon Davies:
When offered a tart from Champagne
Monsieur had rare cause to complain.
The crust he'd avoid
But always enjoyed
The filling again and again.
When promised a tart in Champagne,
He dashed over there on a train,
The pastry was puff,
but not ruff enough,
He decided best not to complain.
