When I put together the first limericks fanpost, I had in mind an elaborate contest with rounds and voting and all kinds of stuff, but in the last week, simplicity has won out. Because, of course, the point of asking for limericks isn't to see which is the best. It's to see the brilliantly funny work that comes out of it.
So, simpler: I'll make limericks fanposts every now and then, until the thing runs out of steam. I'd been planning to use Scutaro as a theme, but that idea's feeling a little long in the tooth. I may come back to it later, but it really feels better to focus on something more positive.
So: The Brandons. Let's get this ship rolling. What do you have for these guys? Here's mine.
An Ode to Brandon:
A limerick about Brandon Hicks
Should probably go into the mix
We'll be quite content
If he's cromulent
And knocks a few out just for kicks
An Ode to Another Brandon:
With facial hair like wolverine
Defense you might call adamantine
A bat that rocks
Those flowing locks...
Even GiantPain is like to preen
This One Is About Belt:
A wild first baseman approaches
A gentleman from Nacogdoches
I think that you'll find
He's regressed to the kind
And it's plain to the eyes -- even Boch's.
