Default Limerick challenge....

You finish the previous poster's Limerick and then write the first two lines for the next poster to finish and so on.

I'll start with:

One day, I was out in the rain
And thinking "Now this is insane"
Then an elephant shat
On my guitar playing cat
I really must quit the cocaine.


First two lines of next Limerick...

A centipede trying on shoes
was disturbed by some quite shocking news...

I met on the web Bangle Man
who has an empty head like a can
when it comes to thinking he is very slow
and if i say green he will think yellow
i think what he deserve is certainly a ban

was more than he could spare to lose.

Hmmm, tough one... let's have a go.


If there's something I loathe, it's limericks
(As favoured by morons and total pricks).
Now I'm telling you

Use real word play - not mere word mechanics.

Fantastic start and topical for someone with English as a second language.

Although, it needs the third and fourth lines to rhyme !

For your example:

I met a man on the web called Bangle Man
who has an empty head like a can
when it comes to thinking he is very slow
and if i say suck he will say blow
i think what he deserves is certainly a ban.


A centipede trying on shoes
Was disturbed by some quite shocking news
he was ten hours late
and missed his best mate
Because he had to tie up all of his 100 shoes.

Observation on me: Also not good at limericks !!

There once was a 2 legged spider,
Who got pissed on White Lightening cider,
He bought a big blow-up dolly,
Took her home in a trolley,
And wiggled and wiggled inside her!

There once was a man who liked Bangles,
Took an unhealthy craving for mangles,
He'd pull out his willie,
Stick it somewhere quite silly,
And now it dont stand, it just dangles......

the once was a girl from the Ranches
whos garden was full of pampas grass branches
she bought knock off fake tan
from a man with a van
and now looks like one of the Comanches
