Lets make a limerick book 2010-07-27 04:32:22


Okay, this is not a Flash book like the one earlier created (Robot Day Poetry/Art Collab), this will be an actual book. It may not work out, but we will give it a go. If it turns out better than I expect, than we will send it in and prey for it to be published.

My goal is for people on Newgrounds to combine their skills and help create a fantastic limerik book. If anyone notices any plageurised submissions, you will be made to redo another one.

I will not make the finishing cover until we have exactly 1000 limericks.

For those who do not know what a limerick is, here is one that I found in a book. (It can be any rating)

A young big buck named Dangles
Saw the world from different angles
He felt real strange
So he made the change
Now he wears cute dresses and bangles

Now, you can make as many limericks as you want and make it as funny as you want. It can be rude as well.

TELL US YOUR WHOLE NAME WHEN YOU POST SO YOU WILL HAVE AN ILLUSTRATION ON THE PAGE.

Thanks, if I have missed anything out, please ask me

So we're going to plunder the publishers? Or do you mean hunt them like rabbits?

I don't see this going that far, considering the other book project hasn't gone anywhere since gumOnShoe ran off somewhere to do something that may or may not require an orchestral sounding soundtrack blaring in the background.

"Coming next summer, gumOnShoe gets more than he bargains for when he takes a trip to a secluded island, where he stumbles upon a secret militia bent on destroying the world. Watch as gumOnShoe saves us all in 'Killer Beach'."

From dusk till dawn it's locked,
Hidden away and boxed,
The treasure I seek,
I won't get to keep,
And what I find, I'm shocked.

The sun above me, has set,
A sight I never will forget,
Shining and glowing,
To me it's worth knowing,
The sun is there to get.

Standing here waiting,
I feel myself hating,
The teacher,
The preacher,
Who sent me to haiti.

A few of the top of my head, only 997 to go!

Wishing you well and a happy memory
A glorious sunrise and cheerful scenery
I wish you the best of luck and more
And that we move on from what we fought for
Let's bury the hatchet and await my delivery

my name is mossy

Saw a thread and I started to think
Grabbed my bottle and took a drink
I wrote a line to rhyme
And did it a second time
And then two more for a link

My full name is Vanslashington

Well done all of you. Here are some of mine

There once was a girl called Sue
Who went out side for some Booze
But what she had found
Made her face go Dark Brown
Her dog had drank all her ooze

I am going to try and create 50.

If all of you could create more, that would be great

One day I went for a fap,
While my girlfriend was taking a nap.
I thought "What's the harm?"
And I blew on her arm,
And now I'm in major crap.

The telephone always rings,
The awful tune that it sings,
I'm trying to sleep,
Now don't make a peep,
You horrible, plastic, thing

This is going quite good, now I think it is time to give topics.

Adult Humour

50 needed

Politics

30 needed

Sexuality Changes

20 needed

Sport

30 needed

That is all I have in mind so far. If you can think of any better ones, put it down alog with your limerick

Politics:

The United States president is black and white
Whether from Kenya, Indonesia or even Hawai'i
I think it's time he fixes the economy
Not everyone in the world has lots of money
Better do your fucking job or say Goodnight

Sexuality:

She's pretty in pink
I find it hard to think
I got her a ring
I hope she loves me
If not my heart will sink

Hey, if you say please,
I will make you grilled cheese,
It won't make you slim,
But it's grilled to the brim,
And there are no fees.

Question: will we get any sort of credit if the book actually goes anywhere?

If I wake up before the new day
I think to myself and I say
Should I stay here in bed
Or lift up my head
In the end end I can do as I may

Politics:
Cameron is a posh twat
Clegg's head he happily pats
Brown got kicked out
He left with a shout
And he stormed away with the cat

Sport:
Bolt is gone in a flash
World records he continues to smash
He leaves in a snap
forgot to turn off the tap
A considers to grow a nice tash

Sorry about my last post not fitting any topics. I'll be back when I think of more.

People:

People claim to be psychic,
But when I give them a kick
They always complain
If I do it again, put them in pain
They'll call the police, quick.

Yes it's not very good

Gambling:

Watch the horses go by
With my bet in my hand I could cry
The winner comes in,
The bet's in the bin
I shake my fist at the sky.

Ummm... I'll do another. In case the first two aren't good enough

Dreams:

We all have our own dreams
Some want to be in football teams
Others dream of singing songs
Or righting wrongs,
But life isn't what it seems.

If any of these get accepted I'll be amazed. My real name's Niall Stevenson by the way. Good luck with the book :P

I think so, if you make a reasonable amount of limericks, I will give you some credit, though I do not know how I will do that.

Though we will see where it takes us first.

So far there is 600 words. By the way, there is not one poem I do not love. Great Work, I will post some of mine soon when I edit them

By this beast I have been beaten,
Now my guts are being eaten,
I've lost this maze,
I'm in a daze,
The minotaur has killed the cretin.

I'm looking for my dog,
I can't see through the fog,
First on my to-do list,
Get out of this mist,
Spike's probably waiting on a log.

Summer, of course, is here,
It comes every, single year,
On this branch I've sat,
Cuddling with my cat,
I may even shed a happy tear.

On none I'm reliant,
I believe that I'm brilliant,
You'll give me a feast,
After I slay this beast,
The drooling, dumb giant.

I think that's ten for me. Good luck, guys!

Sorry for double posting but I just got a cool idea. And I said I had ten when I really had nine, so this should make ten. Erm... twelve.

Pizza, pizza, pepperoni,
If you find a better show me,
I have the best price,
The food will suffice,
And I want to make alot of money.

I was not very tough,
For me life was quite rough,
So I trained and I trained,
Much confidence I gained,
And now I am buff.

I realized that there a ton of words with the "ough" ending, so I made another.

Gary was quite gruff,
He never could have enough,
But now he is sad,
because he lost his dad,
His life has now lost all fluff.

I am having alot of fun with this. Sorry that none of them really have categories, though.

Good work endel. Keep it up.

I have thought of some more topics

Love

War

Food

Fart

Medical

Boobs

They are the extra ones I have thought of. Please keep them coming. So far I have 30. On average that is 10 per day.

If this goes for 100 days we will have our thousand. But John Endel and I are creating 50-100 each so that will make it quicker.

I have put everyones name next to their poem in Size 8 calibri (Bold), which means every poem has their creators name next to it.

Please keep on making more

Do not worry if they do not fit topics, they will eventually fit one.

Here's some more I thought up

War:
The young go out to fight
They die in day and night
The old did declare
Relations they did tear
As their actions extinguish the light

The trenches in mud live now
We live in a field like the cow
Men die by the day
But in the end we can say
For our contry we took a death bow

Food:
Throught our lives we feast
As we consume the fruit and the beast
We eat what we can
We're a major food fan
Stop is what we do the least

My real name's Philip Doyle by the way

Fart:

Today, I must fart,
It is my own art,
Some come out fast,
And some can last,
But this one came out tart.

Summer:

Away from here I must rend,
Myself, at least for the weekend,
I'll go out on the lake,
and surf on a wake,
Maybe a postcard I'll send.

Random:

If a chick is smiling at you,
What would you do?
Would you say "What's up,"
And then pucker up,
And say "I got laid" to your crew?

Alright guys, I'm going to be gone for the weekend, I'll write down any ideas I have, but I won't have internet. Goodluck and keep posting!

Boobs

There once was a girl with a big tit
Who could never find a place to sit
Without a whistle or a perve
or a smile or a churve
Because her boobs stood out like a deoderant can alit

Politics

Kevin ruled Australia in '07
But couldn't withhold til the 2010 election
And was beaten by a girl, Gillard to be precise
Whom was promoted to PM from deputy vice
And now rules over all Australian Men

Rangas

It stood out so bright
The hairy red light
That was on the head
of a monkey's friend
That poor human ain't a pretty sight

That is what I came up with in 10 minutes. I will put more on later.

Good Work John and Phil, keep it up and you will get better credit

Animals:

There once was a chicken that would crow
That would screech real loud the crow low
It would pierce your ears
Leaving a ring for years
(Unknown, please think of one)

Fart:

I felt the need to release a squeeze
That I thought would slip through with ease
So I tried to fart
But released a shart
That was caused by rotten cheese

Politics:
They threw our money away
And feel like they do as they may
The banks got a bail
Just to save their tail
They ruined us and we have to pay

Sport:
As daredevils fall from the sky
Reality to them is a lie
The thrill of the fall
Leaves them standing tall
For the mundane all they do is sigh

Good work phil, keep it up. To me I think that these are quite fun to make. I have created 8 (but 2 not yet finished), and my goal is 100. Lets just see if I can get up there.
