Limericks.....September 21, 2006

Limericks.....September 21, 2006

A limerick is a five-line poem written with one couplet and one triplet. If a couplet is a two-line rhymed poem, then a triplet would be a three-line rhymed poem. Limericks are meant to be funny. They often contain hyperbole, onomatopoeia, idioms, puns, and other figurative devices. The last line of a good limerick contains the PUNCH LINE or "heart of the joke." . Remember to have pun, I mean FUN!

Here is a Limerick to get you started

There once was a pauper named Meg

Who accidentally broke her _______.

She slipped on the ______.

Not once, but thrice

Take no pity on her, I __________.

Yes I know this has been done before Image

If you can't think of one MULTIPLE MAN asks...
"who in the world came up with the idea of storks delivering babies?"
