    When I was a kid, we used to write our own limericks, usually to make fun of each other. Here's a chance for all you frustrated writers to spread you literary wings. This could turn out to be an epic failure, but maybe not.

    Definition:
    noun, Grammar.
    1.
    A kind of humorous verse of five lines, in which the first, second, and fifth lines rhyme with each other, and the third and fourth lines, which are shorter, form a rhymed couplet.



    My entry:

    There once was a girl from Brazil
    whose husband had built her a still
    She threw in some fruit
    and then had a toot
    and passed out when she had her fill.

    Very nice idea, but much too difficult for me. I would like to post a Limerick of Pete instead - our legendary unforgotten ad hoc Limerick Guru...!

    Safe and sound, well off the ground,
    that's where you find the bird
    they always eat
    standing on their feet,
    though I chomp and fly, maybe I'm absurd.

    I just joined Audiokarma.
    No attitude - No harma!
    I posted a fable
    About a great cable-
    The replies set off my fire alarma!

    I once had an big pair of Bose
    The cabs stuffed with old pantyhose.
    As I turned up the sound,
    the stockings unwound,
    and smacked me right in the nose.

    The amp had troubles to shoot
    That I thought I could fix in a toot
    The DeOxit I sprayed
    But I'd picked up the Glade
    And that's when I gave it the boot.

    My record collection is vast
    Got all the good stuff, first to last
    But the problem, you see
    Has occurred to me
    That my hearing is failing fast.

    There was once a man from some town,
    Who kept jumping up and down.
    When I asked him, "Dear sir,”
    “What makes you so hy-per?”
    He stared like I was the clown.

    I like how you worked part of your name in there.

    I love the springtime in San Juan
    The girls go about without much on.
    But though I'm still bold,
    I've grown rather old,
    And I wouldn't be able to catch one.

    My records are heard and they're seen.
    The surfaces have a great sheen.
    But before very long,
    I won't hear their song,
    Because I polished them with Oxy-Clean.

    Writing limericks can sometimes be awkward.
    I can't always get this one started.
    The secret I find,
    Is to write the last line
    And finish the poem going backwards.

    There was a young lady from Ongar.
    Who went to bed with a congar.
    When asked how it felt.
    She said though it smelt.
    It was quite like a man only longer. :rolleyes:

    On Craigslist I posted some speakers
    Amongst the cars, bikes, and sneakers
    But to my distress
    Up to my address
    Nobody showed but some tweakers

    There once was an audiophile
    whose system was very high style
    With 180 gram
    the imagery, Damn!
    Was the best he'd heard in a while.

    The tip of the stylus was vile
    It was fixed with an audio file
    The grooves are now cut
    With the dust cover shut
    And the records last only a while.

    When bobsvinyl was just 3 feet tall
    He'd play a writing game with his friends all
    Rhyming jokes all around
    No one ever did frown
    Today's kids stare at phones in the mall

    I wanted to limerick a great song
    But took too many hits from the bong
    My guitar's out of tune
    I'll be snack hungry soon
    it's for the best because my meter was wrong

    Silicone, transistors and whiz kids,
    Created internet, browsers, and web hits.
    Anything you could know,
    Your GUI will show.
    And here we are using it for this.

    A guy that I know is so cheap.
    He gets all his gear off the heap.
    He'd even stoop
    to clean up mouse poop.
    Hate to say it, he got some good stuff to keep.
