Geoff, we're anxiously awaiting our next limerick game word. Please let us know what it is so we can get started.

Since you don't like the poll system, why not post them in a thread when you have collected them all, and we'll choose from there? Variety is the spice of life!

Congratulations on winning - with such a hard word to rhyme!

I sent that limerick to Tinman "for his eyes only." He asked me to allow him to publish it. I said he could, but with the understanding that it was NOT a part of any competition. Therefore, let arnie do one.

I'll continue writing them just for fun, but will no longer mess with a system that baffles me. It's Bob's game, so he can run it as he sees fit - even if it flummoxes dyslexics! Roll Eyes

PS: Tinman DID have my permission to publish mine.

This is a collaborative site. Nothing here is owned by anyone. Yes, arnie and I are administrators, but that's about it. So - no, this isn't Bob's game.

Let's please forget about the limerick poll discussion. From now on, let's do limericks like we do the Bluffing game. We'll list them by number and people will choose the number. Geoff, if you don't want to start this game, would someone else, who got a vote, please do it? Thanks so much.

Is that the place they sang about in the sitcom?

Haven't heard that for awhile. The song made it on the charts, reaching #1 on Billboard in May or '76.

It has been awhile! Is it pronounced like that? I have never known how to pronounce Qatar.

I've always pronounced it kuh-TAH but I'm not sure that's right.

It has been in the news here recently and they are pronouncing it like ka-tar, or as Bob said kuh. I am not sure if that is correct, but it is how people are pronouncing it in the news.

Bethree5's link has a pronunciation included. It sounds like "Kotter" to me. Maybe my ears are plugged up due to catarrh?

You're right Geoff. The link does pronounce it that way. I wonder why newscasters are pronouncing it differently?

I've heard a number of variations but CUT-er seems used most often (Though it may not be the accepted ron). Why cant the foreigners write in English. If it'sw good enough for Jesus, it's good enough for me.

Oh, Proof, you silly twit, "Jesus" is Spanish! Big Grin There IS, however, a flower named for the folks you're thinking of: Baptisia australis That's Latin for Southern Baptist.

Hmmm... I wonder if a Shiitake is a Japanese Muslim with a fungal infection?

Hi all...I'm back from the Sunny South, none the worse for the wear.

Am I right to conclude that Qatar our next destination? And B35 is our guide?

You were missed! Glad to see you back! How was the trip south?

I found several pronunciations of the word "Qatar". One is the most commonly accepted, but the second one is probably the correct way. The third is probably how an English speaking person would do it as correctly as possible. For me, it would be difficult to pronounce correctly, indeed, and difficult to rhyme.

Qatar

Qatar 2

Qatar 3

I've heard several pronunciations, too, and I doubt any of them do justice to the actual Arabic pronunciation of the word. I'll use bethree5's link as the accepted pronunciation for my limerick. It sounds like "Kotter" to me.

Well, I don't know where Bethree is, so I'll post it for her. While you were away, Hab, we decided not to use the polls anymore. We will post the limericks like we post the Bluffing Game words, numbering them and the people will select their favorite numbers. One advantage to that way is that we see everyone's selections.

Not sure that's an advantage. When you can see how others have chosen that might mean that you change your own choice influenced by what has gone before.

Okay, but where do candidates get sent? Bethree or Geoff?
