The Great Limerick Round-Up

Do you like poetry, silly humor and/or Richard Armitage?
If you answered yes to any of the above, listen up. I mean, read up... whatever. 
(And if not, why are you visiting this blog in the first place!? 
Although everyone is welcome, of course.)

RA the poet.
Don't like?

How about this?
Okay, I'll stop.

Back to business...

According to Wikipedia, a limerick is "a five-line poem in anapestic or
amphibrachic meter with a strict rhyme scheme (aabba), which intends to be witty or
humorous, and is sometimes obscene with humorous intent."

Sometimes obscene? haha!
Anyway, for an example of the limerick pattern, click on the Wikipedia 
link above or HERE to see past RA limericks on this blog.

Now it's YOUR turn, blog readers...
~Announcing an open call for RA Limericks!~

Requirements to participate:
*The limerick should be only ONE paragraph long
(so that there is room for everyone.)
*The topic must be about RA or one of his characters
*List the name or nickname you'd like credited
*Submit your limerick by Friday, August 20th
*Let me know if there is a particular photo that
goes along with your paragraph.

Here's the plan:
I will collect everyone's contributions
and either put together one huge limerick, or
each limerick individually if the first idea doesn't
work very well. (Either way, you will be credited for your
contribution.) This will be posted on August 22nd,
in honor of RA's birthday! :)

Comments for this post will be disabled
to remind everyone to send their limericks by email.
(I'd like them to be a surprise for the rest of the blog readers.)
