Okay "limericists" here are the entries for Rye. Please vote for your fave, even if you didn't enter. Hope I didn't miss any.

Question:
1 My girlfriend who lives down in Rye
Is cute, but a little bit shy.
She hides those sweet eyes
(and sometimes she cries.)
But - massaging that tush and her thigh!

2 A foolish young man down in Rye
Went out water-skiing while high.
He waved at a lass
And fell on his ass
And laughed as he gurgled, “Bye-bye!”

3 "Hot damn, but they almost can fly,"
They say of the surfers at Rye.
To ride a girl's ass
With their throbbing mass
They'll lie, and then laugh, waving bye!

4 A lovelorn young lady from Rye
Determined to shoot for the sky,
Felt rather stupid
When hard hit by cupid,
To fall for none other than I?

5 I once saw a beach gal in Rye
Whose suit crept up far past her thigh
I couldn’t stop looking
(With gas she was cooking!)—
Until I got punched in the eye.

6 There was a young fellow of Rye,
Said, “You want me to WHAT? Well, I’ll try.”
Though he tried, and he failed
In the press he was hailed
As one hell of a talented guy.

7 There once was a baker of Rye
Who often was awfully shy
Till a man we'll call Guy
Saw desire in her eye
And he had a warm piece of her pie.

8 A pious old spinster of Rye
When sometimes asked if she knew why
She had failed with the chaps
Then she said “it’s perhaps,
The tattoo of the Pope on my thigh.”

9 A bunch of us drove down to Rye
With fishing gear, hoping to fry
A squid or a salmon
But it was a famine:
I yawned, and caught me a fly.

Choices:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.

 


Regards Greg

I thought there were some really good ones here, but I voted for the one that actually made me LOL.

We need more than 3 votes, guys!

I'd like to time travel and go back and redo mine. Ugh!

My limerick. I will go into reasons later. As for my vote, there were so many really good limericks, but the clincher for me is if I actually laugh. I did on #8.

So the 9 limericks came from 6 contestants, as I haven't voted yet, that leaves one other contestant who hasn't yet voted, and Kalleh maybe you could convince Shufitz to cast a vote. Otherwise I will just pick my favourite of the 4 that have received a vote.

PS: Kalleh, NBA Offcialdom must be really pissed off that a Canadian team had the audacity to win the Championship today. No doubt the Warriors will claim it was the injury to Klay Thompson who was shooting the lights out that cost them today's game, but no they threw it away with poor foul shooting both Iguodala and Draymond Green missed 2 of 2 from the stripe back to back late in the 3rd quarter, and in the last Iguodala again and also Cousins only made one of their 2 shots from the stripe. Make all those and they win, and take it to Game 7. I watched the 2nd half live. Maybe if they'd put Aussie Andrew Bogut back into the game late, instead of Cousins, things may have been different too, especially with what he could of done at the defensive end. Of course when Thompson went down they lost not only lost their best offensive player, but also their best defender.

I'll ask Shu to vote (however, I can't assure you that he will. Wink)

I was rooting for the Raptors, and I do think many (in Chicago anyway) were. We had the 3-peat with the Bulls, and we sure didn't want the Warriors to get one too (even though Steve Kerr was with the Bulls then). I was a little worried about the Raptors, though, because they absolutely should have won it in game 5. They got the ball away from the Warriors at the last few seconds and then didn't make that last shot. I can tell you, Michael Jordan would have either made that, or would have passed to someone who was open. That play showed me that those old Bulls were a better team (though I may be biased. Wink)

Maybe Shu will vote for mine! (No such luck, I am sure...)

Raptors? We occasionally have one eating a squirrel in our yard. Given the squirrel overpopulation, I root for them too.

Well still no more votes, so I think it's time I broke the tie. Actually if I'd had a normal vote I would have voted for No. 7 (it certainly warmed my pie) and since that already has one vote that makes it the winner. The limericks and contributors were written by:

1. Kalleh
2. Bethree5
3. Sattva
4. Yours truly
5. Bethree5
6. Bob
7. Geoff
8. Bob
9. Bethree5

Actually there was an element of truth to my limerick. My (ex-)wife used to tell me about some advice she received from a respected mentor, who said, "it was just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as a poor man", but me and money have never had much of an affinity with each other I'm afraid, so she dipped out.

Special congtraulations to Bethree5 for the sheer volume and the fact that all three of her entries were befitting of the location.

So Geoff, it's up to you to choose the next location for us to visit.


Regards Greg

The trouble with using pseudonyms in on-line forums, is that you don't know if the person is male or female, so my apologies to Bethree5 if the "her" pronoun used in my comments, is actually the wrong gender.

Ditto! Except-- full disclosure: I voted for the only other one besides my limericks that made me LOL. Red Face

Wow sorry for missing this vote! (Pls see my excuses at the responses to communal post Kalleh recently sent). I-- again, like sattva-- roared at #8 (& voted for it too late). However I was all set to vote for #7 before I read it, so there you are. Good choice.

According to the poll 8 has two votes now but as the result had already been called before that final vote I shall accept gracefully that 7 is the winner (though I shall still feel all smug inside)

I have now actually cast my vote, so now it looks like a 2-way tie with my casting vote tipping the balance in favour of No. 7, so now at least it looks right.
