And on a lighter note...

2002-02-14 22:50:50+00 by Dylan 9 comments

I hereby begin the rhyme-off with a limerick I wrote a few days ago. I know it's cheating, but it has to start somewhere...Topspin, the gauntlet lies at your feet! Um...pick it up or something.

Voilá, behold my genius:

there once was a man from Seattle
with an unhealthy longing for cattle,
he said to his shrink,
explaining his kink,
"I'd do horses if not for the saddle"

Yes. Fear my genius. Love it. Pet it. Feed it monkeys.

How do you want it? the <br> will do breaks (unless that's what you've already figured out), if you indent the entire thing it'll blockquote or you can do that manually. I need to go back and revisit the \r and \n issue in the various browsers and see if an obvious solution pops up this time.

actually yeah I figured it out, then I got disco'd and didn't get back to comment on my comment. I did
's and that took care of it...just having a fit of pique, don't mind me.

A coder with little discretion
had a masturbatory obsession;
he'd sit at his desk
and make quite a mess
with a mass of regular expressions.

With a bit of editing from Susan, there's my answer.

a comatose usher from Philly
whose occasional taste for a filly
put his nest egg in hock
sold a piece of the rock
for a sure thing in the 7th named Billy
these don't actually mean anything, i just excrete limericks

uh oh, the gauntlet has been picked up by not one but two! *gasp*

there once was a boy with a passion
for nuclear atom smashin'
built a hydrogen bomb
to shatter the calm
'cause the girls didn't think he was dashin'

Ok, I'm reaching but it's late. Ish.

Maybe I excrete them too. Eww. I need a shower now.

For Eric, though I know you're not getting this type of van.... I just love the word "Westfalia."

A beautiful girl in a Westfalia
gave blowjobs that simply would awe ya;
she was so good they say
that the wind, one day,
hired a copyright law-ya.

There once was a lad who coded in Perl
who felt an attraction to a cute geek girl
he tried to woo her and take her to dances
but found that this wasn't helping his chances
'til he wrote dollar curl scalar ref close curl

Let's see if you can figure the theme here... I live near Tampa, BTW

She dipped and flipped her hair
As his nose sniffed the perfumed air.
In a quick turn she ground her breasts,
Naked and swaying into his chest;
A 10-spot tip is all his wife would bare.

And of course a Haiku

Ten, Twenty, Forty.
Erotic Dance pulls the purse,
Yet no love is bought.
