There Was a Calculus Test From Nantucket

I have been dared by one of my colleagues to write one of the questions on my calculus exam in the form of a limerick.

This is especially challenging since the first exam only covers a few topics: parametric equations, secant lines and tangent lines, definition of limits, epsilon-delta, and limit laws.

Any contributions from readers will be shamelessly plagiarized and passed off as my own handiwork.
