Here are the entries for this week's game. Pick one. Well, you really have no choice.
Anyone else going to vote?
All I can say is...wow.
I don’t think there is any doubt about the winner.
Here are the entries:
1. Richard English
5 Greg S
6 Mine, which I noticed as I wrote this has an extra uS in the first line (and).
I’ll wait a few days to post another, but if anyone else has a suggestion, jump right in and start another game. Don’t wait for me.
A worthy winner. Incidentally, did anyone check the truth of my statement about Rob Eaton and the Dark Star Orchestra?
Bummer! I was sure I had this one covered. Triple alliterations in Lines 1 and 5, quadruple alliteration in Line 2 ("once" being the less obvious 4th), and an extra rhyme on -ick for the second last stressed syllable of each of those lines, and a bit of blue humour to boot, and the only vote I got was probably Proof, who couldn't vote for his own, which he no doubt really thought was better than mine, anyway. Next time perhaps.
Oh, Greg, I hear you! I thought I had mine covered, too, since I was the only one to address the actual city. I don't find limericks about cities nearly as interesting if it's just that the limerick was set in the city. Oh well, as Greg says, next time...
And, Greg, I voted for yours! I loved the alliterations.
Well, mine did address a facet of the city since Vail is where Rob Eaton comes from. And as soon as I realised that his is the Dark Star Orchestra the limerick became obvious, looking at the Dark Star Brewery Tap as I am right now.
Richard is the only person I've met who can give you second-hand alcoholism just by reading his posts.
Good, isn't it?
A response would be to no aVail.

Not to drag this too far off topic, but this moring on BBC southeast news there was an item about breweries. Apparently there are now 40 breweries in the southeast and, throughout the UK there are now over 1,000 breweries.
This has all come about because of the actions of just four men who, 40 years ago, founded CAMRA. They are all deserving of a medal - but those are, of course, reserved for sports "stars".
