Limericks use a distinctive rhyming scheme of a-a-b-b-a in which the first, second, and fifth lines of each stanza rhyme as do the third and fourth lines. For example: There was a young girl from Rabat Who had triplets: Nat, Pat and Tat Twas fine in the breeding But not in the feeding When she found she had no tit for Tat! Now......let's see what yawl can do. I'm sure that someone can come up with something. Don't be bashful.

webster I like it and altho it is not a limerick I am sure it makes sense. But never having studied math beyhond arithmetic and commercial math I can honestly say I don't know what H2504 stands for. Were I to know I'm sure it would make me laff. Thanks for stopping by and for your input.

Sorry, I am not a poet by any means. The only limerick I can even recall is "There Once Was a Man From Nantucket"! LOL

roflmao....as a football fan I thoroughly enjoyed that one. It has gone into my "limerick" file for future readings. Thanks so much for dropping by and I loved your input.
