    A pretty young maid from Lahore.
    Found a boy she came to adore,
    But when they were wed.
    He waa dud in bed
    And what's worse, had a terrible snore.

    Wuzfuz,
    Your limericks, just make me giggle
    But here's a note I must scribble
    Here's the instruction
    'Bout this Game's construction
    And how through this game we can wiggle.



    Limericks consist of five lines.

    The first two lines must rhyme with one another and contain the same count of syllables, usually seven to ten syllables.

    The second two lines are shorter (four to seven syllables} and must rhyme with each other.

    The fifth line rhymes with the first two lines of the limerick and matches the number of syllables of the first two lines.

    Example:

    There once was a lady named Mary
    Who met a young fella named Harry
    The went for a ride
    She soon was his bride
    And they had a wee baby named Carrie.

    COPY and PASTE the preceding lines and then add your line and the next poster adds the next line until the limerick is complete. (Total of 5 lines)

    The poster who completes the limerick...must also add a "starter" line for the next limerick.

    Mary and Harry went walking,
    But Mary could not stop talking.
    So he stuffed her mouth with a stocking'
    Which Mary found quite shocking.
    But it certainly stopped her squawking.

    WUZFUZ has a michevious mind,
    But most of his friends are kind
    They know its to express
    His serious stress.
    When thinking about the foibles of mankind

    A pretty young girl from Toronto.
    Had an ego as big as a Rhino;
    But the sneers from her peers.
    Brought her to tears,
    When they told her she was only a SO SO

    He I am "Boomers" again,
    far too early it's only 3-10.
    Could be my pills; or not.
    Did I get, or got-
    and exactly just where and when.

    Thee is ah old man in Dundee;
    Whose eyes are so dim he can't see'
    His hearing is weak, can't hear people speak.
    But his fingers still work and he hopes it won't irk`,
    When he feels them to find who they be.

    June 2 "Coronation Day."
    Back in '52 so they say.
    Believe it or not-
    I completely forgot.
    Must telephone her right away.

    An old Hog who lived in a Sty, could not afford to be shy.
    Because anxious others were always nearby.
    But in doing his thing, he was surely the King.
    And all the happy Sows in his ring,
    Agreed and said. No others need to apply.

    Limericks are fun

    There was a man from Hanover.
    Who had always been a roamer
    Bu he finally could see, there's no future for me
    So never ever again will I feel this pain
    By continuing to be a wild rover

    Limericks consist of five lines.

    The first two lines must rhyme with one another and contain the same count of syllables, usually seven to ten syllables.

    The second two lines are shorter (four to seven syllables} and must rhyme with each other.

    The fifth line rhymes with the first two lines of the limerick and matches the number of syllables of the first two lines.

    Example:

    There once was a lady named Mary
    Who met a young fella named Harry
    The went for a ride
    She soon was his bride
    And they had a wee baby named Carrie.

    COPY and PASTE the preceding lines and then add your line and the next poster adds the next line until the limerick is complete. (Total of 5 lines)
    The poster who completes the limerick...must also add a "starter" line for the next limerick.




    I'm going to start this one again....

    REMEMBER...it's ONE line at the time and whomever finishes the limerick, must begin the first line of the next new Limerick......

    Eg....
    I write....
    Rose had a cow named Lilly

    Oceanna might write....
    "Rose is a name that's so silly"

    Wuzfuz might write....
    "But she smelled like a flower"

    Glad E Olah might write
    "Or do I need a shower?!!" Very Happy

    Willows might finish with....
    I'll bathe at the five o'clock hour.


    So there we have it....

    "Rose had a cow named Lilly
    Rose is a name that's so silly
    But she smelled like a flower
    Or do I need a shower?
    I'll bathe at the five o'clock hour."


    (note the rythm of the limerick..)
    Ta-da-ta-da-ta-dah
    Ta-da-ta=da-ta-dah
    Ta-da-ta'da
    Ta-da-ta-da
    Ta-da-ta-ta-ta-dah

    (Oh...silly me!! with my ta-da-ta-da's!!"!!) Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

    REMEMBER....ONE LINE AT THE TIME !!


    Come on all...let's try this one again!

    Are we writing a limerick in general one line at a time?

    I think we are to copy the person's lyrics before you and add to it. This is going to be hard but fun. Watch me mess it up. Feel free to edit mine anyone.

    Willows you do this so well
    We all think you are swell
    You are so quick
    Wish I could as Well
    With a funny story to tell.

    Hi all!

    Here's another example of a completed limerick.

    There once was a cop called "The Fuz"
    No longer a cop but he was
    Retired the force
    His name here of course
    Is our ever so special "Wuzfuz!


    The first two lines rhyme with one another.
    The 3rd and 4th lines have less syllables and they rhyme with one another.
    The last line is the same amount of syllables as the first two lines (usually 8 or 9 syllables) and......it rhymes with the first two lines.

    After my notes here, I will begin a new limerick, and I'll only write one line.

    COPY and PASTE the preceding line or lines and then add your line and the next poster adds the next line until the limerick is complete. (Total of 5 lines)
    The poster who completes the limerick...must also add a "starter" line for the next limerick.

    Okay....so here I go with the first line that the next poster will copy and paste and add a new line to it....

    I cannot see what's been written
    the avatars are overlappin'
    Give them some action
    Maybe twirl a baton
    Send the whole bunch a spinnin'

    Will come back to your limerick Willows once it has been fixed so I can read it. I had to do it ....., lol!
