I wanted to start a 'write an ode to something' thread
but it turns out that odes are *by definition* really long, and often tough to wade through in all their crapulence. So instead I'm suggesting a "write a limerick to something" thread. Here's mine:

Scavery is my obsession,
and here is another confession:
Though I say it a lot,
Its meaning is naught
but some dump site attendant's direction.


And yeah, yer DAMNED right - I takes my poetic license where I likes.

:D

1. I think you should write and ode to Skinner to kick off
your "cult to Skinner" forum. It could be in lieu of an actual mission statement!

And, call him "Bulldog" in your ode - he'll know what you mean! :7

3. an odeous limerick?
the once was a kitty called "chatte"
who pudding wrestled enemies to the mat
she'd give em a shove
snarling "'ad enough luv?"
as she'd hand them an arse in a hat

6. There once was a total arsehat
who made decisions about this and that
he stole an election from Gore
then started a war
and fucked up the world with his huge spat.

:eyes:

8. There one was a gent wore an arse-hat.
Fashionistas all said it was "all that."
But his girl disagreed
and dismounted that steed
to find one who'd service her laid flat.

10. That was, shall we say, brilliant!
Too bad Miss French Kitty isn't here to enjoy it, but she'll be back!

9. There once was a hypnotic toad
thought by some to be a complete choad
but to those in the know
he was brilliant, and so
fuck them and the horses they rode!

13. "Ode to my Car"
(short and to the point verson) by Adam Sandler:

Piece of shit car
I got a piece of shit car
That fuckin' pile of shit
Never gets me very far

My car's a big piece of shit
'Cause the shocks are fucking shot
And my seatbelt's fucking broken
I got to tie it in a knot

I can't see through the windshield
'Cause it's got a big fucking' crack
And the interior smells real bad
'Cause my friend puked in the back
