    In traditional thread-game fashion, add a line to the limerick (obviously until we reach the obligatory five-line limit) and then start another one by posting a new line... sorry about my poor explanation.

    Please try to add only ONE line at a time! Also, copy all the previous lines in to create a final 5 line poem in the same post, that way the next new limerick starts with a single line....good luck!

    I'll start:

    There once was a lady from Fife

    just to interject, limericks use the form:
    A (7, 8 or 9 syllables*)
    A (7, 8 or 9)
    B (5 or 6)
    B (5 or 6)
    A (7, 8 or 9)


    There once was a lady from Fife
    Who had had a very long life
    She had a black cat
    Who liked playing with rats
    And a penchant for Morrisons' baps

    There once was a plumber from Bath

    I'll start a new one. In the great tradition of I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue, the idea is to keep it clean and avoid the obvious.

    How's about:

    There was once a man from Nantucket

    There was once a man from Nantucket

    There was once a man from Nantucket
    Who found a big hole in his bucket

    He pushed in his thumb
    Then went all glum
    It was stuck, for good...so f..k it!
