Let's Write Some Limericks

    A limerick is a five-line humorous and rhythmic poem in which the first, second and fifth lines rhyme. The third and fourth lines are shorter and share a different rhyme. For example:

    A circus performer named Brian
    Once smiled as he rode on a lion.
    They came back from the ride,
    But with Brian inside,
    And the smile on the face of the lion.

    I'll start with the first line of an original limerick. Another person posts the first line plus their original second line. The next person posts the first two lines plus their third line...and so on until we have a complete limerick. Whoever finishes a limerick provides a new first line for the next limerick, and the process continues.

    Two rules: (1) only post one line at a time and let someone else post the next line and (2) keep the limericks clean.

    So, here goes:

    Paul, each person can post the next line. We're ready for someone to post line 4, which rhymes with line 3. Give it a shot!

    A man of style one could not refute.

    Done! The person that finishes the limerick with the fifth line starts the next limerick with a new first line, and the process repeats.
