Limericks thread

Okay, in direct competition to the poetry thread, where my base sense of humour is not deep enough and definitely not appreciated by the literati who post in there, here are the results of my attempts to write poetry in the form of the limerick, in tribute to Lleyton and Kim. For those of you who dont know, limericks are meant to rhyme and be funny and have a very strict pattern, so please respect that when posting your own (which hopefully you will and which will also hopefully be funnier than mine!):

There was a young man from Australia
Who was a spectacular failure (with the ladies)
But then he saw Kim
Who also liked him
And now they're out choosing the veil, yeah!

And the next one:

There was a fab blonde known as Kimmie
Got asked out by a Belgian called Jimmy
But then she spied Hewitt
And before she knew it
She's agreed to put on Lleyton's pinnie

And another

There was a young Belgian called Kim
Who picked up a ball in the gym
She stood up and threw it
To a young stud called Hewitt
And thought "God, I'd like to shag him!"

Yet another

There was a young woman from Bree
Who was always jam packed full of glee
She played fabulous tennis
She was never a menace
And she loved to sit on Lleyton's knee

And finally (thank God for that I hear you all cry):

When we watch Kimmy play on the telly
She wears tops that show off half her belly
People almost have fits
When she does all those splits
And she makes Justine's knees turn to jelly

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers

Fiona they are really good!
I wish I had that talent! I think I'll just stick to writing the conversations!

We will miss you Kim!.


Best of Luck in 2007 to: Kim & Bryan, Lleyton, Alicia, Todd, Sam, Chris, Casey, Wayne, Kirsten & all the other Aussies & injured players.

Hope you like those :

She was once number 1 of world tennis
Earning slightly more dough than two pennies
He was number 1 too
(One and one equals two: )
Now I hope they get married in Venice


She is Kim to his Lleyton and maleness
He is Lleyton to her and her frailness. . .
She, the cream to his coffee
He, her far nicest trophy
And together their tale is quite tailless
PS: I don't know how the colors will look when you have the red or blue skin (I'm a gray man myself ). I hope they look OK .

An Australian mate saw this split
And froze in his shoes as if hit
- dreamt her above him
- cried: god, I love Kim!
She splits now for him when he's fit

Fifiricci!
Lynx!

You're cracking me up! Gimme more!

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
