    Some thing's happening, I posted that about the syllable count in the limerick thread after the line about Edward Lear; and it brought Ox here earlier.

    Liked the one about the King's stutter.

    Lack of site maintenance is the problem, Olly. Someone should do something. Like send the boss a PM.

    Okay, I'm pretty sure it was the "boss" who moved them all here, if you guys are serious about wondering how your posts ended up here. If not, and you're simply having fun, then ignore this post...it never happened.

    what would your ideal career be, if you couldn't be a writer?
    A professional assassin; I’d start by disposing of all owners/operators of websites who act like god.

    It's easy to see who gives these things some thought...

    You certainly didn't give much thought to syllable count or rhythm - or where you posted your comment.

    Of course that's a complete aside to the fact that you were posting the same line as the previous poster; in this case, me.

    Of course that makes no allowance for the facts that certain people, when viewing comments about Earth's gyration, are inevitably reminded of the present westward movement towards Russia of the Earth's Magnetic North Pole, and that such people then go seeking through their mind for a word that's both indicative of the consequences of such movement and also rhymes with gyration, rather than just posting an off-the-cuff and low-brow comment about an irritable bovine.

    Well perhaps if you'd given a little more thought to it you could have applied a rhythm which fitted the limerick. *American accent* Just sayin'.

    It would also appear that my line was quite prophetic.

    I posted a first line and then thought "Aarrgh, what rhymes with Jurassic?" finally came up with this:-

    Dinosaurs lived through the Jurassic
    Without the use of elastic
    To hold up the drawers
    Of those dinosaurs
    They used something much more basic

    Not my best I know.
