I read and thoroughly enjoy all the limericks you people
create. I am very envious. I can come up with some
pretty lame ones, but by the time I do, you all are 3-4
limericks beyond. No problem, however, I do enjoy reading
others works and revel in the works. Keep up the good
work. {to use the word 'work' three times: shows my
creativity}

That was really clever, jj! A lovely Christmas present on Christmas day - Thank You! - and for all the other quirky rhymes you produce.
I guess all of us regulars on this thread enjoy the inventiveness of the others, Luke. There really are some cracking good ones from time to time. If you are working on one and need time to perfect it, put a post in that one's imminent and we'll wait for you for a few minutes - or hours, even. Or you could post it, anyway, even after you've been pipped to the post - we've all done that, occasionally.

CHORUS – CHRISTMAS

Before we all get quite as p****d as
A newt, or by baubles dedazz-
-led, let’s do this for us:
We’ll all shout, in chorus,
To All on Wordsmith, MERRY CHRISTMAS!


HAPPY - HARBOUR


I'm immortal until proven otherwise

Thanks Rhub.
I'll keep that in mind, or just make a note that I am
working on one, and you all can just go on around me -
I don't mind, as golfers do, let others cut through.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

(Which means Happy Harbour) lived Bill;
He was never at ease
When he spoke Portuguese –
He relied on his buddy called Gil.

He fell over a skate, hit his shank.
In a couple of days, how it stank!
Suddenly, with pain sharp–
He acquired a harp.
Now he sings with the angels: how swank.

LLAMA – LOCAL

I agree with the Rhub: if you write one, post it. Who cares if you're not in with it first?

Llama, llama, yellowhammer
Give 'em Hell, Alabama
Notre, Notre Dame
Notre, Notre Damn
Llama, llama, yellowhammer
Give 'em Hell, Alabama

Uh...let me explain. The yellowhammer is Alabama's state bird and the llama is a, uh, camel like creature without a hump.
Please excuse me blush I just wanted a chance to chant this chant.

Alaska
Llama, llama, willow ptarmigan.
Blasted snow covered up my farmagain.
I love living in Alaska,
'Cept in wintertime disaska.

Let ME explain: The willow ptarmigan is Alaska's state bird, and all the lovely snow we got in the last two days is going to get rained on tomorrow, then it'll freeze, then rain again. If I didn't love it here, I'd probably hate it.

Sure thing, jj, go ahead. I don't mind!

Thanks, jj and Peter, for giving me inspiration!

Partisanship of a local kind
Brings all sorts of rituals to mind.
With llamas or birds,
And inflamat'ry words
These chants us together do bind.

VETINARY - VICE ** see three posts below!! blush
