December Daily Doodles 2007 - contest thread week 3

Welcome to Week 3 of the Doodles!

December 17 - Present Plans

Contest opens now. Contest closes at midnight in around 24 hours.

Today I would like you to write me a limerick. The subject of the limerick should be a gift that your pirate is hoping to receive over the holidays.

A limerick is a five line verse and has a characteristic rhyme scheme and meter. The rhyme scheme is AABBA, so the second and fifth lines should rhyme with the first line, and the fourth line should rhyme with the third line. The A lines are longer than the B lines. Take a look at some published or online limericks to understand what the finished limerick should sound like.

As a reminder, please read the general rules before posting. Start your post with your pirate name and ocean, and then post your limerick.

Go Doodle!

Sainter on the Hunter Ocean

Oh wonderful present, I wonder what it could be?
Oh the joyous times, can't wait to open it and see
I'm hoping it is a Frig
Or maybe it is a Purple Brig
Oh wait, it's not a present, it's a crate, How silly of me

EDIT: Didn't we miss out Doodle 16?

Nordenx, Viridian

If ye gave me a gift this holiday, what would it be?
A gift befitting the best portrait ARrrtist in all of Y!P.P.
Rename me a Viking vessel...
And put in a freaking easel...
So I can paint you in Viking costume, running around shouting "Wheeeeee!"

I think all my Pirate wants for Christmas is his nice warm fireplace.

My nose is as cold as could be,
In ice-water right up to my knees,
Stuck in this hull,
This Christmas is dull.
Does Santa deliver at Sea?

Its new and its shiny,
I cant wait untell its mine-y,
Then to atlantis i can go and over it be fretting.


Edit: threw in a extra "I" somewhere, and viconia made me fix it.

Trowzers of Sage....


This is what my pirate wants (after having my parrot recoloured)...

My birdie, now empurpled nicely,
Needs a pirate that matches precisely,
So clothes of that hue,
Would be lovely too,
And that is what I'd like, concisely.


And just because limericks are more fun than cleaning, this is what I want in real life...

Sooooo... my hot water system corroded,
And then it quite neatly exploded,
So as the drips drop,
Just give me a mop,
Or give me more rum to get loaded!

(My second soaked carpet experience in two weeks! Do you think my inner pirate wants me to go to sea or something???)

What I want for christmas isn't small.
Because it's much bigger than a stall
My desire is easy to achieve.
In me just must believe.
Puzzle pirate fun is the best gift of all.

Alethia on Midnight

I hope that I don't sound too bitter
But it would set my heart all a-twitter
If I were to win a prize,
A new helmet my size,
And some clothes just like Brynhild Skullsplitter.

Seriously...are we going to have some Viking clothes to go with the helmets at some point?

Delores on sage


There was a pirate Delores who wished for a gift
One that would give Christmas a special lift
But all that she got
Was a load of old rot,
And worse was to come when she was set adrift.

Always yield to temptation, because it may not pass your way again.

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

Trancie on Sage

If I were to seek a nice little gift,
it wouldn't be clothes, a shoppe or a face lift.
But rather, a nice cozy fire,
and accompanied by friends and desires,
a little monkey crawls upon my shoulder,
and we shall never grow older.
As our spirits stay youthful,
we shall sit and remain truthful,
for christmas is the greatest gift of all.

I'm just a bit loopy, and I'm on the take.
Please use lots of brandy, it's easy to bake.
I've craved for a while
something just my style
After all, it's well-known I'm a fruitcake.

Llamagirl on Hunter

Dear Santa, I've been a good pirate all year,
And now that Christmas is so near,
I must tell you I'd like rum,
If only just some,
'Cause with rum, ships are more fun to steer.

P.S. Sorry... I'm a terrible writer...

I know it might sound like a brag,
but I’ve already got some nice swag!
I’ve got my blue wig
And a ship-not too big.
So all I’d like is a day with no lag!

There's really just one thing I want this year.
To win just one contest I've entered here.
Could this be the one?
Oh, that would be fun!
So please, Mr. Doodlemaster, make me cheer!

Chocorose of Cobalt

I apologize in advance for this awful rhyme. If I get time later, I'll write a new one >.<

There once was a young pirate girl
Who wished not for a ruby nor pearl,
But for the renaming
Of her parrot, exclaiming,
"Sparrow just isn't right! Makes me hurl!"

He wanted to win a red monkey.

He's becoming a Doodling junky.

I wonder what present for me will be bought?
A tiger? - too scary!
A dog? - far too hairy!
