I agree - some folks who were participating earlier have dropped out. frown

I think we should go back to the Roolz and make a sentence. Now, as you can see, we did not hesitate to make a couplet at times.

Want to start a new thread for limericks only? Or keep it as-is?

Pez is candy that comes in a dispenser with a character head. Perhaps someone can insert a photo....

The back of the heads have hinges, and the brick shaped candy dispenses below the chin when you tilt the head back. There are hundreds of Pez dispenser styles. The candy is mostly fruit flavors.

Oh okay thanks. Is it a brand name? Why doesn't the Webster's new world dictionary list it?

It's a trade mark Pez

I like to read your limericks, but for me it takes too much time to do it. The occasional sentence was OK. I have to look up most of the given words to begin with.

This thread was pretty inactive for a while. I tried to revive it with the limericks a month or so ago, and we had the discussion early on about whether or not to start a new thread. That was left unresolved at the time, so we can decide today (but I have to leave for work right now.)

I totally enjoy reading the limericks. Have attempted a few,
but get boggled down. Keep 'em up!.

I have to look up quite a few of them too!

Well, let's keep the thread as-is. All you non-limerickers: feel free to jump in with a sentence or whatever moves you. If we have a double post (which sometimes happens anyway) we will address both posts and continue having fun.

The bugloss flower would have bulldozed across the field was it not rooted to the ground.
