  1. Irresistible stuff. The Wikipedia entry on him is pretty great. My favorite passage: someone said he was “so giftedly bad he backed unwittingly into genius.” Given that he’s still in print after 100 years, who can argue with that?

    Ooh, thanks! Love doggerel. Recently featured some from ‘Canada’s worst poet’, James McIntyre, at my blog, here.

      Also, for more James McIntyre poetry, see the comments on that post linking a blog which specializes in cheese-related themes, about which subject McIntyre was infamous for writing.
