Your spelling is worse than the wabbits
you should try to break such bad habits
if I were with you
I'd clobber you too
but not on Sunday cause it's sabbath

Confused

Beeing a non native english speaker
And havin' a thumb on a glass of liquor
Falling in love much to soon
Getting awake after noon
And when I get off the bed
I just spam another thread
Tell you all zombies here
You are most funny ohh deer :crazy:

There was an old Knight Who Says Ni!
who called for his fiddlers three.
They fiddled and diddled
until one of them piddled
all over the Ni! sayer's knee! Shocked

I fear my poor shrubbies are laggin'
I see the old limbs just a-draggin'
I'll just plod along
And sing a new song
A Dual-Core is in my new wagon! Very Happy

It all started so innocently.

Sir Hamster of Elderberry wrote:
Almost up to ten pages again, time to think of a contest for how to split the thread.

But then again, why bother? Since I'm clearly winning! Wink

ni! i!u


All I needed was some way to decide how to split the thread ...

Michelle wrote:
There was a kannigit called SHoE
who didn't know what to do.
"A contest!" he said.

Please stand aside, coming through.


... and it seemed so perfect. But I needed an impartial judge. Now who do I know around here that likes limericks? Silly question, it's got to be Sir JByram2! So I sent him a PM ...

PS: I intend to hold a limerick contest to determine where the thread is split, with Sir Jbyram as the judge (if he agrees). Otherwise, I'll choose among all entries in some arbitrary manner. Go!


And so it began! The excitement was palpable!

OK, maybe not palpable. Perhaps just sort of that greasy-squishy feeling.

Good thing he didn't critique the limerick in the PM I sent him too. Wink

Yes, the original PM I sent Sir JB was a limerick too, though not a great one.

There once was a nun called Milly

She adorned it with ribbons

and then changed her first name to Willy.


Don't ask me what flibjibbins are. I had trouble thinking of an 'ibbons' word.

who's nervous and picky

A many good songs have been posted
Michelly has posted the mosted.
Although they are funny
their rhythm is runny
and hiccups like beer being toasted.


The thread is hijacked as you see
The blame must fall squarely on me.
Just post a few words
if rhythm is heard
you'll finish this insanity.


They don't even have to make sense!
Just post 'em in pure ignorance.

I revised this old one:

A new rhyme is good fun that is true
but which form should we choose to pursue
At the old pond we stop,
and the frogs go ker-Plop!
Is it verse, Limerick, or Haiku?

I read this whole thread, every one
Remem'bring when we had fun
Just teasing and taunting,
and BOINCing and flaunting
our shrubberies when they were done.

I just go back and reminisce
When I jumped out in to the abyss.
Such foollishly folly
was joolishly jolly
and something that I truly miss.

It was quite a frivolous jaunt
in the days of the old Fortress haunt.
The words flew with ease
and a lot of fun tease,
and there was many a jolly good taunt.
