Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)



This month's Lime Day will see another new writing contest, this time in the form of limericks. For this contest, pirates are encouraged to express their love of limes while compressing it into a five-line verse.

Information:
-Please make sure to sign your entries with your pirate's name on the Cobalt Ocean. Any entries that are nameless will be disqualified.
-The contest deadline is April 20, 2008 at 11:59:59PM
-Entries must be 5 lines and must have some rhyme (usually, limericks follow the rhyming scheme aabba.)
-Each entry must have something to do with limes or Lime Day.
-Limit 3 entries per pirate.

Prizes:
This month's prizes for the writing contest are a little bit smaller than last month's, but still worth giving it a shot!

1st place will win a Scapegoat egg, lime pie trinket, and a lime/gold 1st place medal.
2nd place will win a lime pie trinket and a lime/silver 2nd place medal.
3rd place will win a lime/bronze 3rd place medal.

Any honorable mentions will recieve a lime greeting card with a personalized message.

Entries can be posted in this thread. If you have questions, you can ask them here or in the main Lime Day thread for the month (which shouldn't be too hard to find in the Cobalt Events section of the forums.)

Good luck and happy Lime Day!

Edit: switched lime and gold to lime/gold to help clarify (same for silver and bronze)

There was a young lady from Urt
Who hid a lime under her skirt
Along came a Limey
Who took it, and blimey!
She calls the babe her little squirt

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

3rd prize is lime? Anyway here is my entry.


Limes love to Lie
They will never Die
Lime day is here
Give it a cheer
Never say good bye!

There was man with a lime
He then sold it for a dime.
He cried like a girl that night
He wanted a lime through a fight
He went to the store and brought more.

Finius hated all of the limes
Gretchen shined her teeth with dimes
Barnabas ate a ghostly meal
Brynhild made a money deal.
Widow ate all of the limes.

Limes are a wonderful treat-a,
Whether you're greenie or greet-a,
They just can't be beat,
So sour, so sweet,
Especially in my margarita!

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

Entry #1
I use lime all the time
Useful in hiding a crime
I am not at all kiddin'
Corpse's odors are hidden
Oh... not that kind of lime


um...nevermind


Entry #2
There was a waitress named Mona
Who had a sparkling persona
Exactly on time
She brought me a lime
For muh-muh-muh-my Corona


Entry #3
Stevensam studied chemistry
In pursuit of beverage purity
Gatorade was wrong
Lemon didn't belong
"I'll have Lime alone, it's a surety!"

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

Parsley, rosemary, and thyme
Who needs herbs when there's drinkin' to rhyme?
For a taste that you'll love,
Squeeze green citrus above
Into rum down below - ah, sub-lime!

(GROAN. No, please don't throw things at nice Cap'n Shanglan ...)

In the wake of the heaviest squalls
The fruit of the lime tree soon falls
Then the pirates race up
With their rum in their cups
To suck on the little green balls.

(Or, if you like it a little dodgier ... )

In the winds of a terrible squall
Blackbeard's limes from the lime tree soon fall.
Then he pours a stiff drink
With a grin and a wink
And says, "Come suck my little green balls!"

Pirate: Shanglan.

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

I'm having a heck of a time
finding words -that rhyme with Lime!
Hat or bat or cat or mat,
there's absolutely no trouble with that!
But finding the rhyme is going to take time!

When the five bells chime
that means it's quitting time!
Down to the pub,
for a drink and some grub
some coke, some rum and some Lime!

Next Lime Day's the 16th of May
so let's get ready for fun and play!
Put on yer green, get on the scene,
and let's all shout hiphip hooray!

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

Pirates do so enjoy the good times
The smile, not matter how evil, it shines
Their teeth can by crooked or curvy
But they have to worry about scurvy
And so on the 16th they eat limes

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

Tequila to drink is quite rough
And chicken ill-cooked is quite tough
To save it in time
for dinner, a lime
Added in brings the dish up to snuff

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

"Lime" is a noun of repute
Be it paint, powdered rock, or a fruit
Whichever I earn
My only concern...

Can I trade it for plenty of loot?

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

O Pirates! Seekest thou this humble fruit,
'Tis green, 'tis ovoid, forsooth, 'tis a beaut!
Scurvy it doth prevent
When eaten by Lady or Gent
Didst say 'tis a lime? Thou art most astute!

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

There once was a man with a lime,
He did not know how to tell time,
He failed to learn,
Also grew a perm,
and finally sold the lime for a dime.

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

Come Lime Day, me mates said "Hurray!"
"Stevensam will help us to play!"
But life did intrude
This Uncle Sam dude
For Lime Day came after Tax Day :-(

There once was a pirate named Mort
For his taxes, he's a bit short
Paid his balance in limes
They shouted, "'Tis a crime!"
Had to resort to a tort brought in court.

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

When you eat a lime
you get more time
Eat an orange
you get a .... oh barnical
Orange has no damn rime

All dressed up nice
But at a price
Toureys galore
Wish there were more
filled full of mice

On this Magical day
Pirates come out to play
Pirates rejoice
If they had a choice
They would celebrate until the next day in May

To write poems 'bout limes

with prizes for three winning gents
*editors note: Srry bout the exclusively male connotation on the winner thing, but it rhymed

instead they will cut off his head

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

from Florentine on Cobalt:


1.

Limes make mouths swell and pucker
They're tart as a mother...plucker
Of chickens of course!
A horse is a horse
Feed them some and ye'll have a bucker

2.

Woe is me, I am addicted
With Lime Madness I am afflicted
I have such a craving
Roommates noticed my raving
From my townhouse I was promptly evicted

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

My crew, well we pillage and plunder
And our enemies, they do wonder
Why their gold be left behind
And the limes, they cannot find
Must seem like a terrible blunder
-----
Limes, such a wonderful fruit
They're all I need for loot
Don't pay me with gold
Covered with rust and mold
I'll take my limes, or moot!
-----
A matey I now despise
Got lime juice in my eyes!
A whimpered and wailed,
I shouted and flailed,
Thought I'd met my demise

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

Ok, this is my entry. I hope it's not too late!

1) It doesn't really rhyme but...

I knew a man who once had a lime,
And he thought it rather sublime,
untill he took of the skin
and bit into the thing
to find the taste rather bitter inside!


2)

One day whilst passing some time,
I encountered a man with a lime
He told me that he
Owned a lime tree
and he sold limes each for a dime


... Random i know, but i'm out of ideas...

3) This one's probably the worst.

I have sampled great fruits in my time,
and many have been quite sublime,
but my favourite of all
is green and quite small
It's the juicy and succulent lime!

I'm sorry i have wasted 10 seconds of your life with this awful poetry. As with all my other poetry, (and thank goodness there isn't very much of it!) this is complete and utter rubbish, but i thought i'd have a go anyway.

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

There once was a mate who dug limes
He foraged for hours at a time
'Till one day he stopped
Took a look at his crop
and saw they were pineapples of grime


They say a lime works best
So this she put to the test
She tightened her shirt
Pulled on her skirt
and stuffed the limes in her vest


Alas, the lad was miffed
He swore it were citrus he sniffed
He thought it a sham
This box from Gram
'Tis lemons not limes were his gift.

Re: Lime Day: LIME-rick contest (April 2008)

Tis such an uneven scam
perpetrated by Stevensam
making us rhyme
while talking bout lime
I just don't give a damn.


I have been hawwin and hemmin
cuz my recent anger is stemmin
from all of this time
devoted to lime
what the hell's wrong with a lemon?


I just think its ironic
and I shout it with voice that is sonic
I wont spend a dime
or devote thoughts to lime
unless it involves gin and tonic


I'm kidding if you catch my drift
I really am not at all miffed
I'm just killing time
by venting bout lime
Cuz im working a 16 hour shift
