    First of all, what are limericks:

    It is an obnoxious form of poetry which follows a certain set of rules -
    1. 5 lines
    2. Rhyming pattern - aabba. The first two lines and the last line have the same END RHYME. The third and fourth also have a pair of rhyming words.
    3. The first two lines and the last line are trimeter and the third and fourth are dimeter. What it means is that the 1st, 2nd and 5th lines are longer than the 3rd and 4th.
    4. Humourous
    5. Could be rude with "cultivated" sexual humour also involved. But it could be clean also.

    Why not create a past life or two?
    There is nothing your mind cannot do;
    Dream up some dreams,
    Go to any extremes,
    Climb a mountain peak near Kathmandu.

    There once was a lady named Cager,
    Who as the result of a wager,
    Consented to fart
    The entire oboe part
    Of Mozart's quartet in F-major.

    Make your own limericks. As funny as you can. The forum decides the winner by poll.

    We have another poet at IGT it seems. Very glad to know. I wont be participating in this contest, though. No good at writing anything. Nice limericks by the way. I'll be watching this thread closely.

    Here's my pathetic attempts at limericks -

    I am a man who in pain did go
    From place to place, a boat did row
    But when I looked down
    The colour was brown
    And no water there for me to flow.

    For breakfast I drank darjeeling tea
    There with me my sister did agree
    To destroy the world
    But at noon she curled
    And I put in her nose a green pea.

    Hey, here's mine...

    A guy called maverick
    tried writing a limerick
    but it was not at all good
    the IGTians thought it rude
    and hit maverick with a stick.

    There was a lady named Bright,
    Who travelled faster than Light,
    She went out one day,
    In a Relative way
    And returned home, the previous night.

    One night I planned for a concerto
    I asked her if she would like to go
    She said yes and smiled
    Like a little child
    And when night came she laughed and said no
