Limerick Collaboration

In this game each person adds a line to a limerick.  The standard form of a limerick follows.  Read through the existing game thread and you’ll get the idea of how it is done.

As a reminder, the cadence is ideally (with a little bit of leeway):

8 syllables
8 syllables
5 syllables
5 syllables
8 syllables

The accents should be on the ‘dum’, as in:

Ta dum ta da dum ta da dum
Ta dum ta da dum ta da dum
Ta dum ta da dum
Ta dum ta da dum
Ta dum ta da dum ta da dum

Finally, the players should be gracious and choose rhymes with plentiful choices and give a good set up like perhaps:

There once was a beauty named Sal
A carnival kind of a gal
She had a fine beard
Which wasn’t that weird
But…

I personally think this makes the challenge of it a lot of fun and the end result more satisfying. No offense… I SAID, “NO OFFENSE!” – Underdog :whistle:
