   They'll have to get out their encyclopedias to find out who Conrad Adenaur was--that is IF they know how to opeerate an encyclopedia.

I'm ancient enough to remember Konrad Adenauer.  He always looked like he was weaned on a pickle.  Gosh, Meek, who'd a thunk the Irish limericks would take this turn!?

Brother Elder ROBERT & MEEK,
... Who'da thunk, indeed!  The continuance of Limerick logic answers this question, below:

Limericks, 'tho' Irish, in origin,
Educate; they help us, to think & learn,
That is why, this 'bird-brained', obtuse turn,
About Konrad, via Her{r}on, can make us grin,
And, then, lead us, to an Arctic Tern!

EXANIMO EVERNOW,
TIMMY & THE BARON, B.G.G.

The was, once, a Professor, named GRIFFIN,
Whose '70's Monsters would glow, and, iffin,
You wanted to know anything 'bout his show,
He'd show you just what you were missin'!

Though real men might not eat quiche
I have a Wolfman on a leash.
He'll eat more than eggs-
he'll consume both your legs
not to mention your arms, kapiche?

When Larry was bit on the moors
his life became horribly cursed
His teeth become fangs
And he grows out his bangs
But the cost of flea collars is the worst

Dear UMA FANG-MILY,
... Since we're on the topic, of 'direct lineage', here's a spot of remembrance:
````````````````````````````````
THE WEREWOLF OF LONDON'S my friend,
We know, tho', he was DR. GLENDON,
By day; yet, when the full moon held sway,
His Wolfish gullet was full, until a bullet, let go,
Brought his miserable, Monster-ous, life to an end.
````````````````````````````````
Posts-crypt:
... Nice work, PACKY & IVAN {Crrr-azy, man, Crrr-azy!}
Grand to see you limber about being on the limerick wrack!
EXANIMO EVERNOW,
BARON TIMOTHEUS, B.G.G.

When met by the Invisible Man
You should keep your possessions in hand
As a thief he got wealthy
by being so stealthy
And I must admit I'm a big fan

VONDERFUL, IVAN!
... I bet you're a BIG FAN of FRANKENSTEIN, too... An ELECTRIC FAN!
Here are a couple more, from "Yours, Truly"!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Phantom of the Opera, 'twas said,
Slept, in a coffin, for his bed,
When he didn't awaken, there was no mistakin',
That, the locals were, now, free, of dread!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Quasimodo was tired, of his plight,
So the Rack, seemed, to be the cure, right?
For a moment, he stood straighter & taller,
Then, he let loose a intolerable holler;
... Well, we, all, had a HUNCH, he'd be BACK!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
EXANIMO EVERNOW,
BARON TIMOTHEUS, B.G.G.

Oh, Baron, that last one was almost cruel!  That bell-ringer has more than paid his toll already.

 :D

The Bride the doc made for his creature
Was a vision with resplendent features
In the lab dressed in white
She regarded her plight
By cementing her role as a screecher

A limerick's a hard thing to write;
It must have a rhythm just right.
You ruin the song
With a line that's too long--
Even if you work in a cool idea about a vampire crumbling to dust from being exposed to the light!

Crazy1van writ:
Oh, wait, this isn't the Haiku thread, is it?

****************************
HAI-Kuuuu!!!... Gesundheit!
These are Limerick 'sneezes',
Not, some verbal 'fart', or, fight,
Too short, or, too looooooooong,
They're a Monster Kid's song;
So, for God's sake, try to write it right!

`````````````````
IVAN & MAX might dispute,
the length of a Limerick, so cute;
Yet, try as they might,
So long as they get it right,
We'll all laugh & say: "It a 'BEAUT'!"

*** WARNING - BLANK VERSE -
*  Not to be confused with HAIKUUU, FRAU BLEUCHER, or LIMERICK! *
               *Read at your own risk*

{... Not to be confused with a BUTTE,
which is that usual comical anatomical thing,
which you'll find, comprising the rump,
of HANNAH, MONTANA!... Unless, the mockery,
of that sort of thing is your BREAD & BUTTE-R!}

APRIL FUELS DAY!

In the interest of rhyming meter, as prescribed for limericks, I've re-worked a couple of my previous attempts... Better, or, Worse - what think Ye? Speak, now, or, forever, write your own limericks!  ;^} "Forever?!" Horrors! That's a loooonnnngggg time to have to write Limericks!
````````````````````````````

Quasimodo, tired, of his plight,
Deemed, as the cure, THE RACK, right?
He stood straighter & taller,
Then, loosed an intolerable holler;
Well, we, all, had a HUNCH, he'd be BACK!

```````````````````````````````
THE WEREWOLF OF LONDON'S my friend,
We knew him as DR. GLENDON, by day;
Yet, when the full moon held sway,
His Wolfish gullet he'd fill,
'til a bullet, let go,
brought his miserable life to an end.
EXANIMO EVERNOW,
BARON TIMOTHEUS, B.G.G.

Baron, please!  You've written fine limmericks.
They're as beloved as Halloween Treats-N-Tricks.
There's no need to rewrite 'em
so long as I don't have to fight 'em
Since the monsters all live in your lyrics.
