  • Wow Osprey, thanks and we will be there with bells on. Or maybe just with costumes on.

    Your stage will be a magnificent place to preview "The Shiny Object That Was A Dirty Fork," whose setting is an elegant Glitch restaurant known as Le Champs de Barre...

  • I know a Glitch entrepreneur
    A maker and shaker and doer
    Who is hosting a bout
    Where lim'ricks we can spout
    So be there or -- be square and be poor!

  • I couldn't make it, but...

    "There was once a Glitch from Alakol
    who mistook lemene for petrol.
    He used it to fill up his car
    and crashed right into Hell Bar,
    that foolish dead Glitch from Alakol."

  • Here are the limericks from the event!

    bored no more:

    teddy bears that have moons,
    a scion that acts like a loon
    an update or 4, yet we want more
    to which teh answer is soon

    Osprey is holding a contest,
    to see which limerick is best
    I read mine out loud, in front of a crowd
    then went back to hear the rest

    Zen Biped :
    The actors had such dedication,
    The play was a smashing sensation!
    Every glitch clapped for it,
    And since glitches can't sit,
    they all got a standing ovation!

    Enjah:
    There was a young Glitch in Grimssea
    Who was just as pure as could be
    He wanted those planks
    But just said NO THANKS
    "When I pet wood, I get wood!" said he!

    There was a cute glitchen named Wanda
    Who was a diguised anaconda
    She hugged em and snuggled
    she strangled and smuggled
    But of her they could not be fonda!

    Emerena:
    There once was a girl from Kajuu
    Whose limericks stopped at line 2

    Vocable:
    I know a Glitch entrepreneur
    A maker and shaker and doer
    Who is hosting a bout
    Where lim'ricks we can spout
    So be there or be square and be poor

    Carthago Creases:
    I'm often found mining Pollokoo
    I mine all the rocks til I croak. You
    Can tell I'm benevolent,
    If that's even relevant,
    But don't interrupt my sudoko.

    Lucretia:
    There was a bold glitchen called Loupin
    whose piggies were constantly poopin'
    there was a smile on his chops
    when surrounded by plops
    and he spent the whole day just a' scoopin'

    Add your limericks!

    And my offerings:

    There once was a man made of wood
    Whose trading was simply no good
    'My fuel for your bean!'
    I whispered, 'Obscene.'
    As I hastily traded the food.

    There once was a giant named Lem,
    Who wanted a diamond gem
    But all the shrine had
    Was Wine of the Dead
    And an amber. Quoth Lem, 'What a shame.'

    An elderly Glitch from Kajuu
    Wore a hat on his foot like a shoe.
    When the others caught sight
    Of his style, their delight
    Was something they could not eschew.

    A sad, little piggie of Ix,
    Was stranded way out in the sticks.
    'I don't want to die,'
    He told Butterfly,
    'I'm so far from spice-gathering Glitch.'

    A slithering tentacl'd dame
    Sold cocktails without feeling shame.
    Though her wares were not neat,
    Just diluted and sweet,
    Her business was brisk just the same.

    A curmudgeonly batterfly spoke
    When a Glitch maiden gave him a poke.
    'I know that you wanna...
    'Come gather my guano...
    'But I don't need to go, so I won't.'

    A mystical Glitch man of Ur
    Was never quite totally sure
    If ALCHEMICAL spelled
    With an a, e, and l
    Or a double-u, q, f, and r.

    The shyness of Tree Octopi
    Was legend in decades gone by.
    The proof they occur
    In tall forests of fir,
    Is that not-a-one can you spy!

    In Cebarkul the Cult of the Dead
    Was popular once, it is said.
    But now if you die
    With no friend standing by
    There's no-one to mourn by your bed.

  • Thanks so much, Varaeth! The preview was only half the actual show, which will premiere Sunday at some fine tower to be determined!

  • I pet, then I poison this tree
    Then whack at its trunk heartlessly.
    I'll do this until
    the Paul Bunions kill.
    ... I wish it'd stop screaming at me.

    Snorting No-No and I feel just fine!
    I'll teleport, make cheese, and mine!
    I'm feeling so clever!
    I'll do this forever...
    Uh, bartender? I need some wine.

    Yellow's worth lots, so I grow
    acres.  It ripens so slow.
    At long last it flowers!
    Now fill up my tower--
    Dammit, I've broken my hoe.
