    There was an old girl of Genoa,
    And I blush when I think that Iowa,
    She's gone to her rest,
    It's all for the best,
    Otherwise I would borrow Samoa.

    Now it remains to be seen
    If I can keep my resolve to get lean.
    It would be dandy,
    Except I have candy
    Left over from last Halloween.

    Winter is filled with cold and snow drifts
    and there isn't much new at the thrifts.
    So I wander downstairs,
    set up speakers in pairs
    and listen to some great guitar riffs.

    Don't forget about skiing and snowboarding
    Winter games can be fun and rewarding
    Hot chicks and hot drinks
    'round the ice-skating rinks
    Take a break from the audio hoarding

    Did you realize that the old popular song "Meet Me In St. Louis" was written in limericks?

    My back is too bad to ski as you said.
    Hot chicks would just make my wife whack my head.
    So I put on boots and socks
    and take my the dog out for walks
    then I warm up at home spinning some Dead.

    A nice pressing is a thing to behold.
    A Robert Ludwig is like striking gold.
    You just sit back and listen
    And your eyes start to glisten
    As the sonic sweetness starts to unfold.

    A tone deaf young guy from Montrose
    said "For me, its as plain as my nose.
    I can't hear worth a damn
    but want to show who I am
    So my system just has to be Bose."

    There are lots of games here, I deem,
    With "almost the name" as a theme.
    So here is my gimmick:
    This is almost a limerick...

    I went out last night to the pub,
    With friends, had beer and some grub.
    Met a new woman there,
    We all had some beer,
    Next morning I found her naked in my tub.

    luckyed decided to withdraw
    from our community, no more
    posts by him - missed by Chris.
    So deeply sad this is.
    (Was a part of our family core.)

    If Luckeyed got lucky with luck
    We'd likely admire his pluck
    But I'm scratching my head
    Shouldn't there be a bed?
    A bathtub's no place for a schmuck. :)

    A challenge you think I should take?
    To devour an 80oz steak?
    Oh I will continue
    Through the gristle and sinew
    At the end I might even want cake :)

    An eighty ounce steak you could chew,
    And be hungry when you are through?
    But with spuds and a veg
    I would allege
    That's something that you couldn't do.

    I used to eat out at a great place
    where the steak was as high as your face.
    If you ate what they made
    then your whole bill was paid
    and your photo went in their front case.


    (The restaurant was in Utah, I think it was called Teresa's Indian Village. Each table was inside a teepee. If you ate their 68 oz. steak, you got your meal free, a t-shirt and your picture on their wall of fame. I never tried to do it.)

    In a grocery store in old Lahore
    I saw Shirley; surely, I've seen her before.
    Shirley, girl of my ballad,
    Surely only eats salad.
    Once you've seen her, you've seen herbivore.

    When you mentioned the girl from Lahore,
    I though sure you would end with "a whore"
    'Cuz it wasn't her diet
    That caused such a riot
    'Twas the way she could spread a cold sore.

    There was a girl from Rabat,
    Who had triplets, Nat, Pat and Tat;
    It was fun in the breeding,
    But hell in the feeding,
    When she found she had no tit for Tat.

    Cheers, og

    There once was a maid in the west
    Who was known for the curves of her chest.
    When one day by chance
    She required an ambulance
    They carried her out two abreast.
