Let's have some fun here, and start a thread of limericks off. I used to do this at school, many moons ago, and had a great time doing it. So, let's see how we can do. There was an old man from Bude, Who liked to parade in the nude, He was walking one day When attacked by a stray, Now he's altered his whole attitude. There was a young man from Eastbourne Who liked a good chew on popcorn He bit some one day His teeth blew away Now he's toothless, gummy and forelorn. Boom boom! Your turn... he he he

There was an old fool on Mylot, Who couldn't think up a response for this spot, So he made up a rhyme, That didn't take much time, And a few measily cents was all that he got.

There was a mylot member Darkwing, Whose discussion was the craziest thing, With a rhyme in each post, I responded the most, For in rhyming you know I am the king.

Limerick There was an Old Man of the Wrekin Whose shoes made a horrible creaking But they said, 'Tell us whether, Your shoes are of leather, Or of what, you Old Man of the Wrekin? There was an Old Man who supposed, That the street door was partially closed; But some very large rats, Ate his coats and his hats, While that futile old gentleman dozed There was an Old Man of the West, Who wore a pale plum-coloured vest; When they said, 'Does it fit?' He replied, 'Not a bit!' That uneasy Old Man of the West There was an Old Man with a gong, Who bumped at it all day long; But they called out, 'O law! You're a horrid old bore!' So they smashed that Old Man with a gong. There was an Old Man on a hill, Who seldom, if ever, stood still; He ran up and down, In his Grandmother's gown, Which adorned that Old Man on a hill There was an Old Man of Moldavia, Who had the most curious behaviour; For while he was able, He slept on a table. That funny Old Man of Moldavia There was an Old Man in a boat, Who said, 'I'm afloat, I'm afloat!' When they said, 'No! you ain't!' He was ready to faint, That unhappy Old Man in a boat. There was an Old Man of Quebec, A beetle ran over his neck; But he cried, 'With a needle, I'll slay you, O beadle!' That angry Old Man of Quebec.

Hmmmmm... yes, very good Gagana, but did you write those yourself? Thank you for your contribution, whichever, but I would like to hear some self-composed ones. Brightest Blessings.

There was an old fool on this site, Who could never get his answers quite right, Though the truth he would tell, His star slowly fell, Even though he was being polite.

Now that I've graduated, I can't even remember what a limerick is. And I just graduated seven months ago. See? High school. Totally pointless.

One day a lot of free time I've got, I debated to do something, or not, So I turned on the PC, To make money that's easy, And that day I discovered myLot! Not too polished, and a little forced, but here's something to pay homage to myLot (so it can pay me too! har har!)

No, it's more of a ditty, or prose. Thank you for the effort though Cyndhirella... you did at least try, and your participation is much appreciated, my friend. Brightest Blessings.

A fly and a flea were caught in a flue So what could they do? Said the fly lets flee And the flea said lets fly So the fly and the flea flew through a flaw in the flue. How is it? Hope this is the best one so far.

It has my tongue in a twist! lol. I think that might be well termed as a tongue twister rather than a limerick, but very good Skratkini. Thank you and brightest blessings.

There once was a sun that was very bright which made the land full of light The clouds came and shut out the days delight Which caused a man to hit a car in broad day light.
