Limerick Challenge

I posted a couple limericks on my twitter feed and I've been enjoying them so I thought I'd turn it into a game.

Here's the deal: Take the previous suggestion and post your limerick. Then post the next suggestion.

The first suggestion is DOGS.



There was a young doggy named Dale
Who went to the vet looking pale
He said in a tizzy,
"Hey doc I feel dizzy"
The doc said, "Quit chasing your tail."



The next subject will be 'PHOTOGRAPHY'
I bought my friend an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks." I said, "Don't mention it."

There is a young lass from Sweden
Who's camera work can not be beaten.
She is a good shot,
in cold weather or hot,
So she usually stays in the top ten.

Next up: EGO please.
Aargh!

There was a young lady named Jane
Who really was quite rather vain
Her curves were so round
And kept you spellbound
That nobody looked at her brain



Next up: PIRATES

There once was a pirate named Hank,
Who was scheduled to walk the plank.
But he showed off a map,
Tattooed under his cap,
And instead he went up in rank.

Next up: Shark, please.
Aargh!

Your pirate limerick would make a good story, or Photoshop contest.



On top of the food chain? The shark
His bite is much worse than his bark
But right here on land
It's not always grand
A lawyer's no walk in the park



Next Up? You Ask? SCHOOL is almost in.

Got bored waiting and wrote this gem:




To change light bulbs sometimes takes a few
Should only take one, this is true
From teamsters to teachers
And Cub Fans and preachers
We found grammar nazis take too

There once was a school,
With a decidedly elitist pool.
No guppies,
No puppies,
It was just fish ye durn fool.


Next up: Bait, please.
Aargh!

There’s the fellow from Del Norte
Creating limericks was not his forte’
But, taking the bait,
He worked until late,
To show the limits of his writing.

There was a young gent from France
Whom everyone thought could dance
When he was asked how
He said with a bow
I load up my pants with ants


Before MsgtBob can do it... Grroooaaannnnn.



Can we have some MUSIC?

A Pretty Young Maiden from Munich.
Charmed her suiters with Music.
Though she had a sweet song,
They wouldn’t stay long,
She played guitar but couldn’t tune it.
:ashamed:



Next: Voices
