View Full Version : TPAY/TPBY Line-by-line limericks: The gritty reboot

It's been a long time since we've had a Line-by-line limericks thread, and now that I'm kind of back on the forum, I'd like to start one again!
For those of you who don't know what a limerick is, I'll borrow one from the Limerick wikipedia site:


Writing a Limerick's absurd,
Line one and line five rhyme in word,
And just as you've reckoned
They rhyme with the second;
The fourth line must rhyme with the third.

So, the point of the game is this: Each person posts one verse for the limerick and one only. The person who writes the last verse, posts the full limerick, then starts the next one. I've had tons of fun with this game in the past, and I hope we'll enjoy it again!

Without further ado, I begin:


I'm glad to be back playing this


Edit: Sorry! I forgot to mention another thing about the limericks: The verses should have a 8-8-5-5-8 syllable structure. This isn't a rule, more of a guideline, since it can be changed if it's funnier that way.

My sister was bit by a moose.
She was then attacked by a goose.
If Skippy were she,
He would climb up a tree
And put that Dexterity to good use.

A murderous kid on the run.

Then sat in a stool
Till he had a date with the paddy wagon

Pinched her butt, yelled 'whey!'
And is now living inside her.

A dragon just fell down the well

Socksy

Until he was caged
And we ate him, it was swell.

And so lost his pride
I worry he'll next lose his head.

'Game' rhyme with 'plane' ?
I'm sometime somewhat baffled as to what constitute rhymes in english

Targ Collective
2014-03-16, 04:57 PM
And don't forget

Request a new conclusion - one that won't get the thread locked on grounds of discrimination, please. Not funny. (And no, I'm not gay myself.)

Kneenibble
2014-03-18, 03:29 PM
@^ I'm gay. I give myself permission.



If I had just one thing to say,
It'd be that all will be okay.
Don't you fret!
And don't forget
You can pray away the gay.

Terrifying but still full of charm
and so modest too :p.

A swell day it turned out to be,

That day that the goblin met me,

Eonas

We hopped with our hands
Into faraway lands,
And ate from a porcupine tree.

And soon he got caught
In a hacking and slashing hijink.
