Limerick Consequences

"If you put an infinite number of apes in front of an infinite number of computers, you get a pretty good idea of what internet chat rooms can be like" - Stevie B

Many of us will have at sometime or another played consequences, where each person adds a line to a story to get a truly nonsensical piece of prose. I am also sure everyone is familiar with the method of rhyming first introduced by Edward Lear – The Limerick.

For those not familiar with the limerick, it is a five line comical verse, where lines one, two and five rhyme, and lines three and four rhyme with a different rhyme. For example:

The artist formally known as Prince
Used to strut on the stage and mince
Then just for a giggle,
He changed his name to a squiggle,
We’ve not seen or heard from him since

So, why not combine the two, and have Limerick Consequences? Someone posts a first line. The next person adds a line (please also include the previous lines), and so on. The person who closes the limerick gets to post the first line of the next, which may be completely unconnected with the previous limerick. Please could you post the limerick lines in bold.

You can provide more than one line in a limerick, but these lines can’t be next to each other.

In the case of cross posting (almost inevitable during busy periods), ignore all posts but the first post with the new line. Tip – use the Recent Button frequently!

OK, start rhyming!

Nearly time for two thousand four
Two thousand three is out the door
Time to make new resolutions
Try to find the best solutions

A birth certificate shows you were born. A death certificate shows you have died. A photo album shows you have lived.

Nearly time for two thousand four

First getting my drunken b*m off the floor

If all I wanted was attention, I'd be naked.

Told you it was New Year right now
So, Father Time, take a bow!
