At least I am persistant in coming up with threads! Haggis I think we played something like this a while back, wana give it a try? anybody?

Okay how about starting a limerick? You do one line each untill there are 5 and the person who does the last line starts the next one.

Okay here goes......

Now, maybe I'm wrong here, but in limerick writing doesn't the last line rhyme with the second?

Not after smoking a "funny cig" it doesn't.

I assumed that was done on purpose...?

Well now, I didn't mean to make a perfectly good thread dry up by pointing out a basic premise of limerick creation (correction: what I think is a basic premise). If it was done on purpose, then it becomes something other than a limerick, which is fine.

You're right, though, Haggis - lines 1, 2, and 5 rhyme, wile lines 3 and 4 also rhyme, but they're slightly shorter.

Let's try again...

(good rhyme on "orange", by the way. I didn't think it could be done.)
