    Ok. Since Pictorial word association has lost its momentum, here’s another diversion to try: LIMERICKS!

    For those who don’t know the meter, these are 5 line verses where lines 1,2,and 5 rhyme, and lines 3 and 4 rhyme.

    The game is to add a witty, (or in some cases half-witty) line on the previously posted incomplete verse, until the limerick is complete. The contributor who completes the verse should then start the next one.

    Rules:

    • Copy the entire verse so far, then add your line in Bold
    • Smutty innuendo is good, Obscenity and foul language are bad.
    • Ending a line with “Orange”,”Purple” or “Cement” is dull and predictable.
    • Don’t post consecutive lines.
    • Keep chatter to a minimum.

    Example:
    On the chest of a barmaid from Sale

    That the donkey must carry him back!

    :roll:
    We seem to have a problem with the rhythm of Limericks.

    Just to recap?

    There was a young lady from Leeds,
    who swallowed a packet of seeds,
    in less than an hour,
    her tits were in flower,
    and her arse was all covered in weeds

    So:
    KP has a problem you see,
    Every night he must get up to pee

    we need two lines before “Cos he’s had too much ouzo for tea”

    KP has a problem you see,
    Every night he must get up to pee,
    But what can he do,
    He can’t find the loo

    Cos he’s had too much ouzo for tea.

    you’re telling me it’s a problem! :angry: you mean I have to wait for 2 more lines before I can have any ouzo for tea? : …………. never mind the blasted rhythm! Just give me the ouzo already! :p

    Nimbus was out late last night
    and at dawn looked quite deathly and white.
    He shivered and shook
    Found some pills, which he took
    and now he feels much better
    or
    now he feels alright

    But hey what was wrong with my first line…nobody followed it up!

    If I was Brenda, I’d start a new verse

    feeling a bit put out now……..

    I’m feeling a bit put out now
    Can someone explain to me how

    If I was Brenda I’d start a new verse,
    But she might be a little bit terse,
    And to write a new line,
    In Irish would be fine,
    But it’ll all be a lot of Erse.

    You guys are really not very good at limericks, are you? No sense of rhythm or rhyme.

    I know this is not in the spirit of the thread, but :-

    To wait for the next line to post,
    This thread will give up the ghost,
    So finish your rhyme.
    Send it on time,
    And if it’s naughty head for the coast. 8)

    Now this is where I put my head above the parapet :finger:

    If KP’s such a prude,
    Why read Chanchi’s posts in the nude,
    To watch those two jump,
    Just gives him the hump,
    ‘cos it’s all so lewd.

    Chanchi’s avatar is double D,
    It’s there for all to see,
    If you can take the hassles,
    Then add two tassels,
    Or put it up as 3-D.

    So, after that witty sidetrack,
    let’s get down to business. So back
    to the verse that’s in hand.
    We’ll continue as planned
    With more of this doggerel cack!

    Yes Brenda, I think we may be struggling. Meanwhile, We’d got to:
