    Plain text format, do you want it typing straight in the e-mail or with a text document attached?

    From the 'pedia:
    Gershon Legman, who compiled the largest and most scholarly anthology, held that the true limerick as a folk form is always obscene, and cites similar opinions by Arnold Bennett and George Bernard Shaw,[5] describing the clean limerick as a "periodic fad and object of magazine contests, rarely rising above mediocrity." From a folkloric point of view, the form is essentially transgressive; violation of taboo is part of its function.



    So yeah, they better. I sent in one about Granok and Chua having sexual relations and the repercussions of that. Dirty poems are so much fun to write. :p

    It says your entry must include your limerick in plain text form. Can I include both my Limerick in plain text form and the SAME limerick done in photoshop with added pictures for displaying in the event I win, or will this cause me to be disqualified.

    I was watching Zap's stream for the longest
    However my luck's not the strongest
    Please set me free, award me a key
    My dream's top 13 of this contest

    Not the one I submitted, primarily due to it not being related enough to WS specifically. Still, it was the first one I thought of.

    Especially, or only? A lot of the ones on here have been only 4 lines.. usually AABA rhyme scheme. Just wondering how accurate I need to be.

    If you read the example, and the limericks you'll see that the BB scheme is combined in 1 sentence

    You're confusing the third line in the four line format everyone's using as a solo B, when infact it's still BB with mid sentence rhyme.

    Using an example from someone above:

    Have you heard of the cross faction couple
    They met in a bar room scuffle
    After a sesh' of metal an flesh
    They wound up with kids like mordesh

    It's exactly the same as -

    Have you heard of the cross faction couple
    They met in a bar room scuffle
    After a sesh'
    Of metal an flesh
    They wound up with kids like mordesh

    Well, I joined here for this contest, here was my entry:


    "There once was a Cassian blood letter
    Her spine curved like the 19th letter
    She reduced the size of her breasts
    and the heft of her chest
    Now she can kill so much better."

    Here's mine.

    Sahl the Spellslinger sought out a quest
    and this Mordesh had quite the familiar behest
    "Oh woe is me, could you slay ten bunny?"
    Sahl just laughed and put two in his chest.

    Here's mine

    There once was a Granok from Gnox who liked to stuff Chua in a box
    When it was time he sipped on some wine and proceeded to snap down the locks
    When this was heard nobody stirred except the chua in the box
    woe to thee if you ever see a Chua stuffing Granok from Gnox if he has his way you'll be forced to play with his massive collection of clocks

    Out dropped a shiny blue choker,
    Well, we tore from the neck of 'Invoker.
    I wish I could read, I pressed need and not greed,
    And couldn't even sell on the broker.

    The entry I sent, good luck all :)

    There once was a warlord from Gnox
    Endowed with some massive rocks.
    Instead of accepting Dominion rule,
    He unsheathed his massive tool.
    By opening up some bloody gashes,
    He forced the fleet back to Cassus,
    And kicked their pompous asses!
