HOW TO PLAY LIMERICK
The aim of the game is to create your own Limericsk, based on a first line, given to you by the host.
The entries are then voted on by the players, with points awarded based on the number of votes.
How to Play Limerick!
1. The Host will begin a limerick by announcing the 1st line of the limerick to be used for each round.
2. Using the 1st line given, you finish the limerick by submitting the next 4 short lines.
REMEMBER: A standard limerick is 5 short lines. Lines 1,2 and 5 should rhyme, with lines 3 & 4 also rhyming.
There was an Old Man in a tree,
Who was horribly bored by a bee:
When they said, " Does it buzz?"
He replied, " Yes it does!
It's a regular brute of a bee!"
There was an Old Man from Dumbree
Who taught little owls to drink tea;
For he said, " To eat mice
Is not proper or nice,"
That amiable man from Dumbree.
