The All New tMP Limerick Thread

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

There once was a lady from Fife
Who had had a very long life
She had a black cat

Who liked playing with rats

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
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!

There was once a wee scotchgirl called Nic
Who loved a Van-Dyke - mainly Dick
Whilst playing with Chitty
She laughed - he's so witty!

There was a 'young' drummer in band...
Who would drum with three sticks in each hand...
One day, with his drum....
