I cant think of a limerick, so f*ck it
 
2014-07-05 10:39:37 AM
That had too many syllables to become a limerick.
 
2014-07-05 10:39:55 AM
And moved on to P-Town to suck it.
And when it was done
He said it's been fun
But it's all global warming so fark it.

....that made me drain my vein.?

/guess I got nothing

The radio didn't work so we chucked it
The water came in
The windows blew out
And my lover he could not even duck it

/yeah, he's dead now
//thanks Obama

that had rain coming down in buckets.
I peered out my window,
and what do you know,
I'm in So.Cal. so suck it.

There once was a storm from Nantucket
That Phukket, we'll do it live!

Arthur, he does as he pleases

All of his life, he's mastered choice
Deep in his heart, he's just, he's just a boy
Living his life one day at a time
And showing himself a really good time
Laughing about the way they want him to be

When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do .....
The best that you can do is fall in love

There once was a hurricane in Nantucket,
Though weakened, still mightily struck it,
Boston Pops lost all power,
Was expected to move near or over western Nova Scotia in the next few hours,
The Gulf of St. Lawrence on Saturday night is expected in all likelihood to suck it.
 
2014-07-05 10:51:11 AM
But my limericks blow, so f*ck it
So this quest I discharge
And I summon MaxxLarge
And in rubber boots I shall muck it

...yeah.  Reports put it at around 8 inches of rain in something like 12-15 hours.  The cold front that kept Arthur from coming ashore in Massachusetts also drew in moisture from pretty much everywhere to dump rain on a line from the southeast corner of Narragansett Bay up through Plymouth.

I started to care, but, I said fark it.

/ exchange the fark for an f word that rhymes with duck

subby doesn't understand how the first line of a limerick works

And Obama is the worst president since WW2 according to new Quinnipac poll?
 
2014-07-05 11:16:01 AM
With clouds so black, it was like having your head in a bukkit
As it blew through, the locals said *phew*
and went back to their normal White People Problems
 
2014-07-05 11:23:00 AM
FAIL     You can only use 3-syllable words in a limerick as the last word in lines 1, 2, or 5. All other words can only be 1 or 2 syllables. Plus you have too many syllables and your meter is way off.

Truther: And Obama is the worst president since WW2 according to new Quinnipac poll?


Seriously?
What did they do, cherry pick retards from facebook to ask?
He ain't the greatest but I would put bush 2, nixon, carter, reagan , and possibly clinton ahead of him on that list, in no particular order.
Hell you could make a case that kennedy did more long term damage to this country than him.
When you consider the damage of the cost of vietnam and the space race to our economic health.

Taft, Harding, Taylor, Coolidge. Grant is borderline. All far worse than any of the guys you the two of you mentioned.

///let's turn all threads into Obama blasting because Obamacare

There once was a (storm) in Nantucket,
Where Romneycare managed to duck it,
But our leader Obama,
Cracker crumbs on pajamas,
Did the exact same thing, really, but fark it.

/needs work

There once was a storm in Nantucket
That looked as if God dumped a bucket
Of heavenly piss
The residents did miss
The calm they had lost when He struck it.

There once was a hurricane in Nantucket,
Nothing to do till
The waters burst through


this whole thread is pretty screwed up

Christ on a cracker. This isn't rocket science. You can't do a limerick with subby's line.

Here comes the science.

First line -- nine syllables in batches of threes -- ba-da-da   ba-da-da   ba-da-da
Second line -- same as first
Third line -- five syllables in batches of three and two -- ba-da-da ba-da
Fourth line -- same as third
Fifth line -- same as first
Rhyme scheme -- A A B B A

Subby used eleven syllables in batches of 3, 4, and 4. That hurts my brain and it is why you all couldn't do it.

"There was a Nantucket hurricane" works technically, but sounds equally odd because of the placement of Nantucket. Ideally, the only place a three syllable word sounds correct is at the end of lines 1 and/or 2 and/or 5.

Thank God he doesn't try Haiku. That'd send me apoplectic into a clock tower with a rifle.

It was a piss-poor excuse for a hurricane when it blew past Delaware yesterday.

Her name was my Sherry,  and she loved to partake of the berry, but that made her puke in to a bucket.

Not a 'cane here in midcoast Maine but it fu*king rained for 18+ hours.

We've got two girls and one bucket.

/there! I finished it

The hurricane that hit Nantucket
Threw the Boston Pops' plans in a bucket
The conductor averred
"We will play on the third
So when Arthur comes we can duck it".

brap: There once was a storm from Nantucket

I concur. Pity that MaxxLarge isn't around to properly demonstrate how it's done.

There once was a hurricane in Nantucket
Who decided to leave the US and Canuck it
It said as it made landfall in New Brunswick
"This thing never even started with the right meter for a limerick
"So the end of it might as well not rhyme either."

There once was a storm in Nantucket,
So horrid that no one could duck it.
The wind and the rain
Caused damage and pain,
And everyone just had to suck it.

When a hurricane came to Nantucket
bringing raindrops the size of a bucket
and with damage inflicted
far worse than predicted
the tourists all fled, saying "F*ck it!"
 
2014-07-05 07:42:30 PM
It's only a cat 1 so fark it.
