  VZ Gaming Guide - Limerick


There was an Old Man in a tree,
Who was horribly bored by a bee:
When they said, " Does it buzz?"
He replied, " Yes it does!
It's a regular brute of a bee!"

There was an Old Man from Dumbree
Who taught little owls to drink tea;
For he said, " To eat mice
Is not proper or nice,"
That amiable man from Dumbree.

These are examples of a Limerick. The aim of the game is to create your own Limerick, based on a first line, given to you by the host. The entries are then voted on by the players, and points are tally'd up, according to how many votes you get.

1) To qualify your limericks MUST follow the standard limerick format of 5 short lines. Lines A, B and E should rhyme and lines C and D should rhyme.

2) Your limerick must begin with the line specified by the host at the start of each round. We will play 5 rounds.

3) You will be given 5 minutes in which to submit your entry. Only your last entry will be valid.

4) Should your entry not comply it will be disqualified.

You dont have to be good at poetry! Just be wild, wacky and random if needbe... as long as it follows the rhythm, and the corresponding lines rhyme, then your Limerick will be a good one.
