Since the last thread has reached its customary 100 pages, here's a new place to play

ADDENDUM: it seems that the rules of this game need reiterating, it's very simple: you add ONE line to the previous post, following on in the rhythmic pattern of a limerick (A, A, B, B, A). That includes the middle lines, you get ONE. If you post the last line to a limerick, you start a new one in the same post, preferably separated by a divider something like the one below.

You seem to have completely ignored the "one line" aspect, which is the whole point of this game, and ran off with the whole thing, which is pretty unsporting. Also you failed to start another one off after ending the first.

Well, TBH I noticed others doing it without complaint in the previous thread so assumed it was not a problem if someone wanted to add more now and again - my fault , sorry about that.

Yes, but you did all of it- you are allowed ONLY one line.
