I met a man from Nantucket
Who did a card trick in a packet.
I told him use a full deck
So nothing would be suspect.
He just told me to suck it.
One of my favorite quotes: "A critic is a legless man who teaches running."

If I recall a true limerick must include the name of a city/pplace in the first line. If so, only Greg Acre and Ravoodoo have submitted true limericks.

No I don't have one-sorry

I cleverly worked NY into my first line. Does that count?

A magician called David in LA
Posted a contest on the Magic Café
He will read limericks
Based on magic and tricks
And will choose winners this coming Friday


..and one more just for fun..


The challenge is to write limericks
Which are related to magic or tricks
If you think this is hard
Try forcing a card
When you're hands are being burned at your gigs.

Oh Regal is an awesome BAMF
Off my ass he makes me laugh
When I see him in Reel Magic
The results can be real tragic
When he rants he tends to blab-it

That's my sorry excuse of a limerick lol. I havn't written one in the longest time so I kind of forgot what it is. Hope it counts Smile

LIMERICKS



Lesson 23



A limerick is a five-line poem written with one couplet and one triplet. If a couplet is a two-line rhymed poem, then a triplet would be a three-line rhymed poem. The rhyme pattern is a a b b a with lines 1, 2 and 5 containing 3 beats and rhyming, and lines 3 and 4 having two beats and rhyming. Some people say that the limerick was invented by soldiers returning from France to the Irish town of Limerick in the 1700's.



Limericks are meant to be funny. They often contain hyperbole, onomatopoeia, idioms, puns, and other figurative devices. The last line of a good limerick contains the PUNCH LINE or "heart of the joke." As you work with limericks, remember to have pun, I mean FUN! Say the following limericks out loud and clap to the rhythm.



A flea and a fly in a flue

Were caught, so what could they do?

Said the fly, "Let us flee."

"Let us fly," said the flea.

So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

Or so I hear.

Young Kendall, while sat on the landing,
was practicing keeping his hand in,
but try as he might,
his technique was trite
diagonal shift notwithstanding.

Take care, Ian

I once saw a guy in Nantucket
Who made coins appear in a bucket
But his act it did lack
Cause the guy was a hack
So finally he just had to junk it

and just for more fun...

This contest just may be a trap
To prey upon some poor dumb sap
So if I have no good luck
Cause my writing does suck
I'm sorry you had to read all this crap

Humbly submitted for your entertainment pleasure,

Robert

From the books “Constant Fooling”
The trick with the mouse left me drooling
But try as I might
I can’t get it right
My fingers and thumbs need re-schooling

The magician floated a young lady in the air,
Who had a magnificent pair.
Or that's what we thought,
Till we heard a loud pop,
And it began losing air!

While studying Erdnase and Sachs,
I noticed there's something that lacks,
In Bobo and Howie
and Hugard and Braue
A method for showing all backs

Alternate last line:

A method for culling red/blacks

Take care, Ian

CORRECTION:

The magician floated a young lady in the air,
Who had a magnificent pair,
Or that's what we thought,
Till we heard ONE pop,
And it began losing air!

Guys -

Great entries. You don't need to abide by a name/place construction - have fun!

And to half-answer some questions, yes there is information online about Clink - but nope, not on my site! Happy hunting.

There was a young man from Nantucket,
Who dumped coins from the air in a bucket.
He said with a grin,
as he spoke over the din,
Here's one in your ear I'll just pluck it.

(Based on an INCREDIBLY dirty limerick)

A daring young magician from Nantucket,
made a living dropping invisable coins in a bucket,
he'd put his hand in the air,
yet nothing was there,
but the sound was so clear when he'd clunk it.


The street magician was dressed up in black,
All expression his face did lack,
'watch watch' he would say
as a card fluttered away
he had the look but was a terrible hack


America's Got Talent I'll win
thought the Amazing Gene with a grin
Alas he failed to enthrall
as he dropped his Fakini balls
and very loudly passed wind

I had just stepped out of the stall
Then I started to wash my sponge balls
The manager came in, and I said with chagrin
I guess now you have seen it all.
