Mike Duron (mike_duron) Okay -- just a little fun here. Limericks are a guilty pleasure of mine....

Please share your own originals here! I'd love to read them. :)

Mike Duron (mike_duron)

There was a plebeian in Rome
Who was barely the size of a gnome,
But the wives of the Senate
All called 12-Inch Emmett
The greatest of all men they'd known.

~Mike Duron ;)

Jay Howard (jay_howard) That wouldn't be a touch of subliminal boasting would it, Mike? Or envy?
I like the limericks idea. Never managed to write a good one but I enjoy other people's efforts.

Subliminal schplabittimal! Any good limerick is dripping with double entendres! :)

Mike Duron (mike_duron) Okay, then -- another one. Hopefully I can inspire somebody out there to take a stab at writing a limerick... :-)

I sailed with a friar from Locke
Who met a new girl at each dock.
When I'd ask the girls, "Why?
A friar?" They'd sigh,
"Let's just say that it isn't his frock."

Ryan Wow, Mike! These are great.

I've always wanted to meet her,
The Queen of iambic meter.
She dances along
In poem and song
I heard a drummer once beat her.

Jay Howard (jay_howard) A drummer drummed iambic meter
For a lovely queen called Peter
Peter minces along
In poem and song
The drummer knew just how to greet her.

Peter Prasad (goodreadscompeter_prasad) | 50 comments This one goes out to my review group leader. She knows who she is :)

Oh the bonny sweet lass from fair Notin'ham
Up close, she were nicer 'n spam in a can
She gave me a wink and poured me a drink.
Tho it weren't my plan it got me to think
O' delights 'tween logs in a forest o' Not'inham.

Cribbed from GURL-POSSE KIDNAP, pg. 192, Druid Club
