There once was a guy on this site
Whose limericks really did bite
His rhyming was junk
His attitude stunk
He wasn't worth the fight

His name was Rocket, he was a dud
He needed tweezers to play with his nub
All the girls say,
"That dude is gay!"
He lost his dignity, threw it away

This one, I stole from Christopher Hitchens. Had my nephews giggling:

There was a train driver named Hunt
Who had some big trains to shunt
By yelling out, "Duck!
"Look out for that truck!"
Saved the life of the fellow in front.

It's all in how you deliver it. The anticipation of the naughty word that never comes gives adolescent boys the giggles.

The first one is much better! Well done.

Still need to work on the iamb for the last line, on both of those, but that's a vast improvement. Maybe "He just couldn't put up a fight", or something?

Anyway, way to go! Thumbsup

I recommend you check out some of our picture threads before you try attacking my masculinity or my skills with "the girls", though. Laugh out load

I came across this bit of silliness I wrote, oh, about six years ago, on another forum, while funning with a bud who was into major silliness -- in this case, proposing the "Buckwheat Battalion" and naming me to lead it in parade:

Quote:I shall not partake of your froofy parade
nor any of your other goofy charades!
I shan't sleep on the sofa with cats
lest all the others think I'm bats.
And no matter if it should make me a saint,
I cannot, shall not drink the paint --
I would sooner have a porcupine
kiss me on the 'taint.
So no matter how you plead, I ne'er
shall be espied in public in my underwear
Astride a float, or a noble stallion,
leading in march the Buckwheat Battalion!
It goes without saying that I was pretty drunk at the time. Hobo

Another one from the same thread:

Quote:The pappywap rouses its beastly head
stumbling t'wards the manger through the night black,
and Lord Bling astride his charger white
summons aficionados of the crack.
Through fog and gloom and gay parades
the loyal knights wavered not. In
shining armor they stood arrayed,
for the honour of serving Sir Diddley Squat.
Noble in posture astride their stallions --
a hip-hip-ho-hum for the Buckwheat Battalion!

I am rain
I make you wet
Blow me to get me off
