Matt,
I didn't take a stab at the limerick (yet) but I thought my reply to the "stupid question" posting was an o"pun"ing that would provide some motivation (at least to get away from these stupid puns!) Oh well, here goes nothing......<P>There once was a pug from Pawtucket,
Whose dinner was served in a bucket.
Purina he spurned;
For Emeril he yearned
To bring oyster in shell and to shuck it!<P>------------------------------------------
them oysters on a half-shell is tasty!
------------------------------------------
Bam it all!
------------------------------------------
Max is "notch"urally a good cook!<P>

There once was a pug from Pawtucket
Whose casework became quite a docket
To stay in the race,
He teamed up with Frank Chase,
Who keeps clues on a leash in his pocket.<P>... OK, I'm still working on it.<P>Here are links to a couple of the better online Rhyming Dictionaries. Hope they help:

There once was a pug from Pawtucket,
Who solved crimes and played the gutbucket
He travelled the land
with his private-eye band
Til crimefighting needs made him chuck it<P>------------------

Hey - ol' Maxie becoming a cleric? Or maybe it could be his twin brother? Nope, can't do that. That'd be a repeat of Father Dowling.<P>There once was a pug from Pawtucket,
Who threw Holy Water by the bucket.
The Vampire Cats
Would scream, "Oh, Drats"
And then try to scurry and duck it!<P>--------------------------------------
Did Benny win the election?

Them stakes are tasty!

Those who can, do.
Those who can't, teach.
Those who can't teach, edit.
Those who can't teach editing, criticize.<P>I don't know what made me just think of this. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"><P>Aside to Johnski: this forum isn't writing, it's falling with style!<P>------------------

There once was a Pug from Pawtucket,
Who had wanted to firetruck it.
A Dalmatian, He ain't
(He's closer to saint!)
When he rides in the laddertruck bucket.<P>-----------------------------------------
Is Benny leading in the polls?

There once was a Pawtucket Pug
Who drank milk from an L&F Mug
With a cookie he dunked
to retrieve it he flunked
He cared not and he just took a chug

From Pawtucket: stories we tell again
(with cool pictures drawn by Matt Milligan)
of some dangerous times
and Max tracking down crimes
we hope that Frank doesn't get killed (again?)<P>At least Pawtucket has its obscene rhyme tree.<P>------------------

Am I to assume that Frank and Max live in the city of Pawtucket?

I call this one: Martha Stewart at Bride2k's Wedding<P>There once was a Pug from Pawtucket
Who made a swell hat from a bucket
He wore it to a wedding
Apparently forgetting
It clashed with his green dried-leaf jacket.<P>With cold wedding tensions already
the Martha fans got quite unsteady.
The bride led the pack
up poor bucket-head's back,
and Pug was through out of the wedding.<P>OK, the Leprechauns of Limerick didn't stay with me all through both stanzas. I just couldn't pass up the image of B2K leading pack of crazed Martha fans.<P>Sorry: "Crazed Martha fans" is redundant, isn't it.<P>------------------

Martha Stewart? Well darn that pasty white garden-boy havin' woman. I mean if we had all the time she did to make what she makes, get paid for it and do what she does she wouldn't be special. <P>And thank you for the clafified butter Dad.
(Sorry 'bout that Padre, and the garden boy comment is that she herself never really picks her herbs from her herb garden, or gathers the dead grapevines to make wreathes she has her garden boy do it)
