    Sideshowbob says that his lim-er-icks
    Are one of his favorite lim-er-tricks
    He writes them so fast
    As he sits on his arse
    It's just how he gets kicks

    Ouch! Missing a few beats there.


    How about:

    It's just how he gets him his kicks.

    This is for those who understand rhythm and triplets:

    (There) A-trip-let, B-trip-let, C
    (Who), E-trip-let, F-trip-let, G
    (She), I-trip-let, J
    (And), J-trip-let, K
    (Then), X-trip-let, Y-trip-let, Z

    In Canada we have a Z,
    That rhymes not with tea but with head.
    We like it that way.
    We prefer to say,
    Not, "Go to bee," but, "Go to bed."

    a search for more rational words
    to promise great freedom for herds
    made arbitrary
    to say "me me me"
    thus bringing them but turds

    Oh dear. In that case, I should probably change my last line to:

    (Then), N-trip-let, O-trip-let, P

    Luckily there are plenty of letters that rhyme with tea!

    .........

    Or maybe this would be better:

    (There) A-trip-let, B-trip-let, C
    (Who), B-trip-let, C-trip-let, D
    (She), A-trip-let, B
    (And), C-trip-let, D
    (Then), E-trip-let, F-trip-let, G

    If limerick-writing's a gift,
    It's only a symbolic lift.
    The lyrics may sing
    But it doesn't bring
    Any cash at the end of my shift.

    Should I feel some shame
    Not even show my name
    For all I have done
    Is repeat the poem
    Is that not lame.

    Yeah, I know. I haven't even tried to "watch" a thread, but you ought to be able to. At least in phpbb3 you can make it so.

    Why can I not like my posts.

    Because Narcissism is discouraged here? Just a wild guess...
