Subject: The Limerick game
From: Bert
Date: 29 Jul 06 - 03:04 PM

Seeing as my Fee, Fie, Fo, Fum, song challenge didn't work let's back up a bit and play the game that originally gave me the idea.

The Limerick game.

One person writes the first line and passes it on to the next person who writes the next line.

Here goes.

There was a young man from Orilla

(your turn - one line per message please)

By chance I once actually wrote a song containing that name. It began: As I rode out from Ballydehob, I said, "For all that the grass is green, Being a psychic's a hell of a job -- You daren't say half of the things you've seen, And the rest is scarcely worth the bob That pays my fare to Skibbereen."

a dogger is a two masted dutch fishing vessel, apart from a fishing area, so its two different words, so its excusable to use it twice, it even has a third meaning , but thats secret.

Cap. Birdseye was writing a rhyme
As a way just of passing the time.
He used the word 'Dogger'
And rhymed it with 'Dogger'
Which I feel is a poetic crime.


Impeach Captain Birdseye.
Rescind his poetic license!

In my book,limericks should be a bawdy 5 line verse. I.E.
There was a young man from Bangkok,
Who got his tool caught in a rock,He pulled it to hard
And stretched it a yard,
Now the women hang round in a flock.

There was a young lass from Devizes,
Whose boobs were of two different sizes,
One was so small
'twas no good at all,
The other won twenty first prizes.

I thought this thread was for the spontaneous, joint composition of new limericks, not just adding the ones we already know, like previous limerick threads.

No, they don't have to be bawdy, but they should be amusing, which generally involves an element of surprise.

Not a limerick I know, but
Shakespeare was a man of wit
And on his shirt he had some          shirt buttons
As he was walking past St Pauls
A woman grabbed him by the             collar
Oh Shakespeare,you're a man of luck,
Come with me and have a                cup of tea.
May be a tanner,maybe a bob
It all depends on the size of your    teacup.

That's not rude is it?

Well, since the Rapture was a bust (except for Little Hawk's dog), and we're not going to have the opportunity to escape boredom by enduring five months of Tribulation, I thought it might be time for a diversion of a different sort. So, I've refreshed this old thread.

Just so you won't have to go to the first post to read the "rules", here they are:

One person writes the first line of a limerick and passes it on to the next person who writes the next line.

Pretty simple, isn't it?

To start things out...
