limerick time
daftbird
this goodies limerick just came into my head and shall record it here forthwith.

There was a young man named Timbo
Whom we know is a fetching blonde bimbo

A sight to be seen
He's in love with the Queen
But sadly she's not with him,though.  .

That was limerick for the day.Actually having an idea!Shall post in the forum.

Mood - daft as
Music - mama tried-merle haggard
Edited - Never

Hey daftbird What a nice limerick! (Don't exactly know what a limerick is, infact I've never heard the word before, haha, but I'm sure it's just a poem of some sort?!?)

You make me laugh - didn't think that  "nice" would be the word for it-more like "nuts" .Rather than try and explain what a limerick is i have just reached for the trusty dictionary,which gives this definition:  a humorous verse form of five lines with a rhyme scheme of aabba.It goes on to say WORD HISTORY named after Limerick,a city and county in Eire.It is thought that the refrain,'Will you come up to Limerick?',was once added between the verses of a limerick at a party.well i think that's enough info for you for one day,right?Oh,just in case you're not sure,when it said Eire,that means Ireland.

Completely useless piece of information: Frank McCourt who wrote Angela's Ashes is from Limerick. You can read all about his time there in either of his three books. And if you're wondering, I'm not his PR person, nor am I from his publisher, but am willing to work for them if the offer is there

mazzanda,i loved angela's ashes and 'tis-but always thought that the titles on the books should have been the other way around.i've not read the one that's out at the moment-do you think it's worth buying?Is he covering old ground?He tells such a good story.What i admire about him is that he's come from absolutely NOTHING-as you know.That he pulled himself up by his boot straps and got on with it.

I'm glad I make you laugh, daftbird! I'm still learning remember, and thanks for telling me what a limerick is, now I know! This year at school, if one of my teachers asks me what a limerick is, I'll be able to tell her/him straight away!

I'm only half way through Teacher Man, but it's good so far. Not quite as good as his other books, but still interesting. He likes having a good bitch about teaching. I'd say either get it in hardcover at a cheap price or wait until the paperback comes out. You could go either way with this one.

Hahahaha daftbird I read your description of what a Limerick is and though it said that it was in the scheme of ABBA!!  I was trying to remember if any ABBA songs were limericks. hahahahahahahaha!

I also remembered a cute Limerick I used to like when I was a kid:

There once was a poet named Klein.
His verses were all very fine.
His spelling was ace
But to his great disgrace
He just couldn't somehow seem to find the right sort of way to getting around to finishing the last line.

AC-that's a good one.Bondgirl-yes,i've noticed-fantastic-getting a much needed laugh out of it.Mazzanda-thanks for that-think i'll wait then until it comes out in paperback-as it doesn't even seem to have many pages in it-at least not compared to his others.Hey AC-better still-try and turn and abba song into a limerick to be silly...

There was a young girl named dancing queen
She was only young;she was 17
She could dance she could jive
Having the time of her life
(Oh frig,i can't finish it)umm ummm...

Let's hope she won't end up a has-been.

stop stop with the limericks arrrgggghhhhh arrrggghhhhh.

Yes, but to follow the aabba, the last line must end in an 'een' sound, so 'five' doesn't work; sorry bondgirl!

Fabulous limerick, Dafty. I love it!

Sorry Janice i took a bit of poetic licence and used an aabbb format with a limerick influence just to get a funny (or so I thought) line.  How about this one in an aabba style.

There was a young girl named dancing queen
She was only young;she was 17
She could dance she could jive
music brought her alive
and now she pole dances in Aberdeen.

cheers

No i was thinking Scottland and cold weather springing to mind an image of some chick sliding down the pole half naked and getting stuck cos it was so cold - like when your tongue gets stuck on an iceblock - now you know why i have the INSANE stamp on my hand !!!
