Oh, don't let me interfere with your fun. I was just poking at you a bit, because that is the prerogative of the ancient.

hmmm CARD and CARL...

I think I shall abandon my (pretty rubbish) limericks and leave those to Beck...much better at it than me!

A young Scottish carl was quite interestingly facially scarred - must have been that hit on the head with a large metal card

ahaha!

A snobbish old platypus kaiser
had a wife, but he seemed to despise 'er:
She was too short at court;
but I'm pleased to report
he invented a re-platicizer.

(Sorry, but I can't find a definition for that word. Apparently I'm not alone.)

There was a teacher with a chrome dome
Stopped by a fence on his way home,
Looking to smell the roses
He found only chrysanthemums,
said "they'll do in a pinch, as would my pate do a comb."

Pathetic I know. I'm none to good with limericks.
But I had a favorite teacher once whom everyone called
Chrome Dome, and I had to give it a try.

Someone can do better: keep the same words

What's wrong with it? All the apostrophe's are in place wink. I think you should chose a new pair of words for the next player.

No, it inspired me to have a go.....


The editor of the local newspaper called Pearl,
was asked to print a epitaph and gave it a whirl
the title was 'The Pedagogue'
and was such a long monologue
it ended up making people want to hurl.


(and ▼ was the alternative)

Said my aunt who was called Pearl,
'In my day, schoolgirls never went for a whirl'.
'er father was once a pedagogue
known for his evangelistic sermons in the synagogue.
That was enough to make any young gentleman, squi'rrel.

QUEEN - RAFFLED


You've heard about Ellery Queen.
He'd show up at any crime sceen.
The clues could be raffled
Policemen were baffled
But Ellery never has been.
