    We need some funny stuff going on here.

    Let's make up some clean limerics. I know Ken, MrDad and Rocky can come up with some. Let's hear some from everyone!

    Keep it clean! The dirty ones are too easy! LOL

    God Bless.

    A clean limerick? Isn't that an oxymoron? Do you know the name comes from the city of Limerick in Ireland?

    At any rate, I have one here:


    A dashing gent named Mr. Dad,
    Said, "I refuse to be sad.
    It's true I have greyed.
    I'm a little bit frayed.
    But think of the fun I have had."

    A naive young fellow from Minn.
    Bid goodbye to his friends and his kin.

    His mettle to test:
    He headed out west.

    Where he learned to play cards and drink gin.

    Come on, folks! It doesn't have to be original!

    There once were two cats of Kilkenny
    Each thought there was one cat too many
    So they fought and they fit
    And they scratched and they bit
    Until instead of two cats there weren't any!

    Get the idea? Have fun!

    God Bless.

    here's a couple I made up when I was feeling silly one day:

    Old Skip was such a round hound
    He measured thirty inches around.
    He’d get started downhill,
    You shouldn’t stand still,
    He’d squash you right into the ground.

    One morning, I looked out of my tent,
    A skunk left behind its foul scent.
    No amount of soap
    Could help my nose cope.
    I stunk of skunk wherever I went.

    it's going to stay unfinished, Callum. Kinda like Schubert's unfinished Symphony.

    Great Work, Penstemon. Love 'em both! How about deleting the "of" in the last line re: the skunk opus. Whaddya think?

    Here's one called:

    Margarine is better for you

    There was a young maiden who yearned
    To discover how butter was churned.

    But the force of the paddle
    Caused her brain cells to addle.

    How costly the lesson she learned!

    There once was a fellow named Rock
    Who learned from the school of hard knocks

    He started to fight
    but soon took his flight

    As he didn't want to be mocked

    There once was a Happy Canuck.
    But was it a Cathy or Chuck?

    No profile in sight.
    If I would guess right,
    It simply would be my good luck!

    How's that married life working out.

    There once was a Lady from Hull
    Who ate till her stomach was full.

    She still wanted more
    So she married a bore:

    A rich actor named Martin Mull.

    W/ apologies to Mr. Mull. Had to be him or Jethro Tull. Couldn't think of anyone else.

    How about "an 'actor' named Steven Segal?" (pronounced see-GULL)

    Is that the right way to pronounce it? I always thought it rhymed w/ gal, cal or pal.

    The general rule w/ names seems to be that they can be pronounced or spelled anyway the owner likes. I have ancestors named Merrick.

    About 100 years ago a Merrick wrote a book on famiy history. He found documents spelling the name 8 different ways.

    Speaking of the theatre, I wondered if David Merrick was a relative. Later read Merrick was not original name.
