I don't want no LIMErick; I want a LEMONrick!


Blog Posted:3/10/2010 9:41:00 PM
And that is exactly my next contest: Give me what you think a "lemonrick is," based on what you know a Limerick is...ugh...so sick of Limericks (no offense to the limerick-lovers out there...no good or bad in poetry styles, right?) I need some pipin hot lemonricks! Have at it in the replies if you wish... Here's my own example of a lemonrick (its however you interpret it really): I had a jeep named red I had to shoot it now its dead I don't know why I married a Jeep. ----------------------------------------------- And THAT's my lemonrick...now you try!

Sorry folks...my computer went berserk(lol)! Yes, Lemonricks are part of life! I had many Lemonricks cars, and thank God they never broke down on busy highways! I had a lemonrick girlfriend, who used to smoke a lot, and out of frustration, I started to sing, "Smoke gets in my eyes" I was a non-smoker...could anyone imagine my anger? I had to make a decision: either to keep my sanity, or get rid of my lemonrick girlfriend...and I did get rid of her! A lemonrick contest could be much fun, Matt! Thanks for sharing this humorous blog with us. I wish you good luck. Kindest Regards, Andrew.

WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?...Posting them here...Smiles! Well, here it is! I named my first doll “My Face.”/// And that, so they said, was a absurd./// So, I quickly renamed her, “Mad Face”

My yellow Toyota turned out to be a lemon Okay, Mr. Toyoda, now hear my sermon Acceleration out of control Accidents abound, sights to behold Male drivers having as many problems as women -- Sadly, based on a true experience with a Toyota "lemon"

Here goes. I call it inverted. My Lemonrick I thought I’d be quick And write a Lemonrick I wanted to write something new There was no one to give me a clue. I think it’s making me sick.

PS One LEMONrick now posted..."It's All in the Name. (LOL I'll lay off of the limericks for awhile...just trying to get the funny bone moving in the right direction...not always easy!) Smiles.

Talk about Creative!!! I've been practicing limericks and I'd rather fight than switch! LOL Just kidding...those words are from some old commercial from childhood 45+ years ago since the end of my childhood...Didn't they say it comes back? I gues I forgot! LOL OK, that's enough playing around. Now for the serious business...one LEMONrick coming up! Smiles, Dane Ann

my golly my internet soooo slow these days, I'm ready to scream! Glad you liked my lemonrick and yup, this lemonrick things just might catch on ;) it sure gives a different twist to the limerick--hmm lemon meringue pies sure sound yummy --I think I vaguely remember making one some time ago, sure is a bit hard to make--I'm more into making tiramisu these days--yummmm

oops--sorry the formatting thing here didn't turn out good-- I'll use the dashes to "enter" my next lines: here goes: Waiting can be such a pain,---------now I have varicose roots, not veins--------------maybe you know I'm dumping you.

hmmm you had me thinking there--perhaps a lemonrick can be some sort of venting instead (heehee the sour things in life)? I've never been successful writing limericks yet (haha I never seem to make it funny) but will try this lemonrick thing: Waiting can be such a pain, now I have varicose roots, not veins maybe you know I'm dumping you. oh well, tell me what you think!
