The Limerick Thread

We’ve had the haiku thread. Time to kick it up a notch - BAM!

There was a smart intern named Mike,
Who the Doctor and Frank didn’t like.
So they knocked him out cold
and his knees they did fold.
While Joel for freedom did strike.

Cambot gets little attention
but I think he warrants a mention.
Without him no show,
we don’t get to see Crow
And that just might lose our attention.

Two bots and some guy watched a flick
the content of which made them sick
So they told a few jokes
for all of us folks
And the “best medicine” did the trick

The Moon Beast is on the rampage
and no-one is safe from his rage.
But before he was through
Johnny made a nice stew.
The cooking of which took an age.
(sigh…)

Moon-flag, how did it get there?
Coleman’s film-making shows little flair.
If it weren’t for the coffee
we’d all switch right off. He
otherwise wasn’t “quite there”.

The Master had too many wives
and they all lived such tedious lives.
Some far preferred Torgo
and his mumbled “bUoN gIoRnO!”
while he topped lukewarm pizza with chives.

With her dad and Eat far behind
In L.A., fame and fortune to find
With Critter and Buz
And his sister, who was
Once in possession of a pretty mind

They once made a movie of ‘Hamlet’

Joel started to riff The Green Slime,
but didn’t complete it that time.
He just needed proof
he could joke on the hoof.
But one day that hill he will climb.

A janitor seeking an angle
On the folks he was going to mangle
Asked “Could I make the scene
If I talk like a teen?
Or should it be teens that I strangle?”

From the vastness of space, dark and cold
Came invaders both daring and bold
Earthlings heard to say
“Why you’re wrinkled and gray!”
Heard “On our world, teenagers are old!”

She could breathe the air that was bad
which made the Dark One quite mad.
To the power station great
she made it too late—
he’d made guacamole of dad.

There once was a man who made puppets…
and it’s NOT that one guy who made Muppets.
He taught them all about love
from miles above,
while they claimed to ignore the smell of his armpits.

There once was a monster named Gorgo
Who can’t be mistaken for Torgo
They never called Orkin
When he stomped on Dorkin
An episode we’ll never forgo

Joel’s escape attempt turned out a no-go
so he had to watch Monster a-go-go
His jailers were cranks
called Clayton and Frank.
Not Pearl, the Observer and Bobo.

Overdrawn at the Memory Bank
was a movie that would quickly tank.
Fingal asks “am I nuts?”
while Apollonia tuts.
And hopes for a sequel just sank.

Let’s all go dine at the Flesh Barn,
on ribs, chops and chilli con carn’.
They serve it quite rare,
as a bit of a dare,
with Champagne from Grande Vallee de Marne.

Valnastar doesn’t rhyme with Nantucket.
“Kill the kid, Ken!” Nope, you can suck it.
Don’t get too cocky
Think: forklift + Rocky
“Hah hah hah, it’s here you are stuck at.”

(I know, I know … just pretend it rhymes.)

Kinga and Max took over
Jonah made a bot called Grover
On Netflix it aired
But Netflix got scared
So Joel said I’ll take over

Young Ator quite fancied his sister
and once went too far when he kissed her.
She said “you’re my brother!”
and ran to tell mother.
And Ator felt sad when he missed her.
