    Since others are kind enough to show us their submissions, I will go ahead and post what I submitted as well:

    To those dreadful, insolent exile masses
    And the Granok who are slow as molasses
    Tree-hugging Aurin (how cute)
    Oh! and space zombies to boot!
    Well prepare to be handed your -redacted-

    I am sure you can infer the last word but I thought it would be more humorous that way.

    I'll share mine as well in hopes that it's zany enough to be a tickle of the developer's funny-bone.
    Ode to the Chua
    Chua going to test on you,
    Make you nothing more than goo.
    If you live through all the tests,
    we start over without rests.
    Chua fame has increased,
    in making Exiles deceased.

    Well, there you have it. Yes, I've made the submission via the email as the rules specify.

    I'll take a wild guess and say the last word is "Bachelor's Degree in Human Studies"?

    There once a Granok with rock dentures
    Who decided to go on an [REDACTED]
    And when he tried out the life changing [REDACTED]
    He channeled Doc Brown and exclaimed "Great Scott!"
    Raise the NDA and the hype train will receive a thirst quencher


    This was a second one I came up with, not as good as my first. Couldnt come up with a way to make the last line sound better

    Good luck to all participants!

    No offense to anybody, but I'm keeping my submission a secret for this one. Here's one I came up with, though -- it's a bit meta and is a 5-liner opposed to the 4-line ones I've seen so far.

    "There once -- you know what? I quit
    For this, I am just not fit
    Creativity
    Is not my specialty
    I'd rather have Moxie and Grit"

    Is there any idea yet where we will be able to see the entries? Would be nice if they posted all the limericks somewhere and put up a top 13 (maybe even top 20)

    I'm making one about the same person! will post it soon.
    Edit: Here it is

    There once was a Durek of stone,
    Whose way may have angered the throne.
    Him branded Stonebreaker,
    "Don't care, meet your maker!"
    But still he wears lousy cologne.

    Wouldn't that make it horrible for the person in the 14th place?

    yeah you could take it that way :) I would (try) to take it as a compliment that though I didn't win a key, I didn't really suck at limericks? :p

    I'll put mine up here, like I said earlier, it kinda sux.

    He gasped and he strained
    his thighs and arms feeling quite pained
    but no matter how hard he thrust
    stuck in his viewscreen the rosdowser remained

    Oh just for the heck of it I'll share mine, thought it was pretty nifty.


    There’s this Zombie race in space
    But they don’t like the taste of your face
    We call them Mordesh, they have rotting flesh,
    And they keep it encased in a vase

    Vase doesn't rhyme with face though?

    Depends on how you pronounce it. I've heard some pronounce it like vauze, but I pronounce it like vayse. If that makes sense?

    I think you can get away with rhyming it with vase just about, depending on your accent. Could also just try using am alternative replacement, like 'Case' :)

    Edit: Just noticed you used encased, so maybe 'Closed off in a case'.

    Encased in a case? Sounds kinda weird. Oh well, already submitted either way. I had a lot of fun doing this.

    Edit: Didn't see your edit, so I'll edit my edit because of your edit. I was trying to keep the 1, 2 & 5 line with two rhymes, to enhance the rhymey-ness of it... or something lol

    Alright, since we're all being Sharey McSharesalot...

    Bored? Head to Nexus for some kicks,
    but this ain't no trip to the tropics.
    Mean ol' baddies abound,
    but we'll take them all down,
    and remember, "ALL PHAT L00TZ GOES TO OPTIX!"

    Since I think I messed up and hit send before I put in my Name and address, thus do not qualify, here is my limerick. And three after that I did not submit.




    The Eldar know that granok are rock
    Scholars infer so’s their cock
    But the greatest travail
    Is a granok female
    Who must therefore be a cock block



    As we wait for our ride to nexus
    The wait for certain does vex us
    So we sit here and write
    All day and all night
    In hopes that no one rejects us




    There was a slippery young aurin
    She found her team mates so borin’
    That she said with a grin
    As she began to charge in
    Sorry, no English, I’m foreign



    There was a robotic mechari
    On a planet nexus safari
    Stealth led the way
    While claws saved the day
    That squid had become calamari
