    The very bad rhymes people write
    Might give normal people a fright
    There's no need to fret
    It's the best we can get
    But at least all will sleep well at night. :p

    I seem to have developed an urge to limerick on this forum which I never had before. All of you who are sick of my limericks can now know there's a place for them.

    I won't put another limerick anywhere else on these fora (or is it forums, I dunno).

    I like the way you've used the plural form,
    but for our lost space, i'm going to mourn,
    I was on every hour,
    like watering a flower,
    but I guess that a name home has been born !

    ;) Ben ;)

    Where do I pitch the tent - this'll be my home :D

    Benny you must learn to count
    Extra syllables you must discount
    It's not easy to hear
    You must listen I fear
    Nine to the second's the amount.

    Tired now!!!!!

    Just to keep it going for us limerickers:-

    It's Wednesday today so it is,
    Some people just throw up a tizz,
    It's healthy, not sick,
    To enjoy limerick,
    Enjoy it, try laughs, it's the bizz!!!!

    aaah, sad, compulsive urges :p

    Tonight is a night off the band,
    Got fed up with nothing to hand,
    So then I thought I
    'd give the Mouthpiece a try
    The finest forUM in the land

    (BOOM- BOOM!!!)

    A night off of band for me too
    AGM soon to come but no ve-to
    Democracy's sound
    but for only a pound
    You can buy a big load of pote-to

    Frisp, where art thou?
    With thy witty retort and comment,
    See I have lost the art of the limerick
    I am that worried about thee!

    There was a trombonist from Rhyl,
    who's Acrobat made people ill,
    and try as he might,
    he could not get it right,
    I believe that he's practising still.

    Fruity, I've not been quite well
    Put it right frisp, you've just felt like hell
    I stayed off a short time
    Now I've tried for the rhyme
    I'm now waiting to learn to excel....

    There was a trombonist called Steve
    His sound you just would not believe
    He plays for Manx Brass
    and his sound is first class
    ...and he has some good tricks up his sleeve!!!

    ('lo Spikey) :roll:

    A young man called Satan from Hell
    Dreamed an art form to make young folks yell
    He said 'Limerick'
    In your stomachs they'll stick
    While that great sound comes straight from your bell!

    There was a young man from Australia
    Who painted his a*se like a dahlia
    The colour was fine
    Likewise the design
    The aroma, alas, was a failure

    The 'young man from Nantucket' beckons but I just can't....

    These should be original rubbish, m'lud 8)

    'The Judge' is a man of belief
    His sweet sound'd jangle your teeth
    If he'd play in tune
    We'd all shoot the moon
    And resting would be a relief

    There was a young man from Nantucket
    Who lived his whole life in a bucket
    He stuck his head out
    and gave quite a shout
    "If this is real life then just leave me alone........ :p :p :p

    Frisplet - desist and refrain
    Your rude health, it drives me insane
    Instead of a worry
    It makes me just hurry
    To go flush my head down the drain

    Try reading this thread while listening to some hiphop. it makes me read all your limericks as if you're freestyling!!

    I was reading the thread late at night,
    The hiphop it gave me a fright
    your random rumblings
    became freestylin tumblings
    and reading them became a delight

    Sorry, last line is dire but you try rhyming night and fright without being rude or irrelevent!!

    Frisplet's a fully-fledged frisp
    but built like the side of a crisp
    Don't worry-just smile
    Might take quite a while
    'cos he plays B flat Bass with a lisp

    I'd like to desist and refrain
    But the limerick's stuck in my brain
    It drives my wife mad
    She thinks I'm quite sad
    I'm wond'ring, am I quite insane?

    (What's freestyling, GeordieCol?)

    I believe that freestyling is the generic term for totally spontaneous rapping.

    MCs do it to music without prior preparation, they just make it up as they go along. its actually very hard. i cant do it.

    I bet i sound like some major rap hip hop gangsta type.
    i rarely even listen to that genre, but i felt like a change the other night

    Today it is April the First,
    The humour will be at its worst -
    I must take a flight
    To that old German night,
    And get me a big currywurst.

    I'm sure there will be lots of jokes
    From all of the lassies and blokes,
    Perhaps ten or twenty,
    There's bound to be plenty,
    But no more from me - that's all, folks.
