Shu’s new limerick game place is Millers Creek. It is in North Carolina. Send me your limericks by PM now! Thank you!

Here is a link to it.

That's a harder rhyme than it looks. The syllable before Miller's Creek needs to be stressed for metre and I always find sticking an adjective in there (eg A young man from old Miller's Creek) feels like cheating.

I shall work on it.

'Twas Shu's and not mine, though he has already come up with some good ones, at least in my opinion.

Hey - how's about sending me some limericks, people? I have zero at this point, tho there are a few in my head that I've been thinking about.

Since my head is empty, there are none in it. Besides, my disruptiveness has probably chased others away.

You haven’t chased others away. I assume it’s just summer’s beautiful weather.

Would love an entry or two tho, please?

I decided that the one I wrote isn't good enough to be considered. I am trying to rework it.

I liked it! Well, where are these limericks, folks? I only have a handful, and therefore I might have write a bunch - and you know where that will leave us. Wink

It isn't much different, and not better. I really can't write limericks!!!

I'll be off the Web for a week -- not to worry.

I did get the limericks, Sattva, and I got Hab's as well. Shu is conjuring one up, and I will too. I have been telling Shu that his venue is not an easy one to rhyme. In the next game, everyone will have to vote for mine because I choose easy ones! Wink

Here in the states, creek can be pronounced to rhyme with week or Dick. I rhymed it with week. Is there any difference in how you have heard it pronounced, Bob? Just curious.

I did too!

So - Shu said he’d get me one tomorrow so I’ll delay the posts a day. I know I had said I hoped he didn’t write one this time because he wins so much, still, the more the merrier, right?!

It looks like "you know who" needs another day.

He is working on one...

Eek? Did it scare you? Will it scare me? Or did you mean eke? I hope it's "eke," 'cause I scare easily, and then I leak! Eek (eek!)

Got it and all the rest (including Shu's!). I am about to post them. FYI, for all of you that put an apostrophe in "Miller's", I've removed it because Millers Creek, North Carolina, does not have one.

Thank you all!
