Technically, the Raven by Edgar Allen Poe was not a limerick. But still... just roll with it. It was an example of written artistic beauty. We'll give you the benefit of the doubt this week. If you want to do a spinoff of "The Raven" for this week's limerick war, feel free.
Other than that, you know the drill. Read a Limerick.... Consider how much better you are at making Limericks.... Write a limerick... and repeat.
It is Baltimore Raven week. Think Ray Lewis talks too much? If you can describe it in a limerick, go for it.
Extra credit for someone who can find a word that rhymes with Houshmandzadeh.
Get your poetry hat on, MHR. It's time for some Limericks.
Limericks are one of the most advanced forms of insult. It's much higher than a "Your Mom" joke. It's like slapping someone's emotions with words.
I'll get the ball rolling with a few.
Call to Arms
Come one and come all, Broncos fans
Get involved and don’t sit in the stands
These limericks are fun
So try and make one
It’s no fun if y’all sit on your hands
Be Quiet Ray Lewis
You claim we've faced defenses weak
But their tackling wasn't so bleak
Our WR's juke
Is not a true fluke
We're elusive, so please don't you speak
Ode to the Run defense
The starting RB should be Rice
But any RB will suffice
Denver will stop
Any Baltimore flop
Under 50 yards would be nice.
Both Zbikowski and Oher were fined
$5000 really messed with my mind
Although they're perturbed
Each fine was deserved
Perhaps they're just cheap shots inclined...
Go for it, MHR!
