Re: Limericks

Jenilia - start with this and make it better:

In Singapore they adore to see
A sight as lovely as can be
So do take care
and be aware

Re: Limericks

There once was a fella named Zach,
They always thought he was slack,
His theories were quite insane,
'cause they were rather un-plain,
Hey, in imagination, he certainly don't lack.

In Singapore they adore to see
A sight as lovely as can be
So do take care
and be aware
They certainly won't be looking at thee.

Or

In Singapore they adore to see
A sight as lovely as can be
So do take care
and be aware
They may be staring at thee.


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

There was once a man with Asperger's
Who liked to eat sweet oranges.
One day, he choked,
While drinking a Coke,
And watching an unknown stranger.

There once was a lady from Twickenham
Whos boots were to tight to walk quick in 'em
She wore them in style
But after a while
She took 'em both off and was sick in 'em

Re: Limericks

When stuck in the rain without mac,
Walk as fast as the wind at your back,
If the wind's in your face,
Then the optimal pace,
Is as fast as your legs can make track.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Or, taking mathsy's idea

He's an insomniac!
Though, probably a feinsomniac!
That's his own way,
Though, sometimes you must pay!
He's not worth that greenback!

That should probably be unusually odd.
