Viking Limerick Contest

As a diehard Packer fan - I have posted a thread on a Packer forum introducing a limerick contest. I would like to open this contest to all nutcanners as well. I have copied my original post below. Good Luck.


Last year I had the opportunity to enter the MontanaBob limerick contest on this site. Somehow, I managed to win the darn thing, and MontanaBob awarded me with some fabulous prizes from his home state of Montana.

After clearing it with Mr. Bob, I have decided to pass on the tradition with this years PackOne limerick contest. I too will offer the winner some fabulous prizes from my home state of Wisconsin. (yeah) I also own a custom art and frame store, so the winner can expect a one of a kind Packer piece - along with other prizes chosen at my discretion.

Montana's only stipulation was that the limerick continued to revolve around the Vikings.

I will also ask Montana for is final approval of a winner. For those not familiar with a limerick format I have posted the rules below.

A limerick is a five-line poem with a strict meter, popularized by Edward Lear. The rhyme scheme is usually "A-A-B-B-A". The first, second, and fifth lines are three metrical feet (9 syllables); the third and fourth are two metrical feet (One metrical foot is equal to 3 syllables; the line pattern goes 9-9-6-6-9). The foot used is usually the amphibrach, a stressed syllable between two unstressed ones. However, many substitutions are common, notably the anapestic foot, two short syllables and then a long (the reverse of dactyl rhythm).

The first line traditionally introduces a person and a location, and usually ends with the name of the location, though sometimes with that of the person. A true limerick is supposed to have a kind of twist to it. This may lie in the final line, or it may lie in the way the rhymes are often intentionally tortured, or in both. Though not a strict requirement, many limericks additionally show some form of internal rhyme, often alliteration, sometimes assonance or another form of rhyme. In early limericks, the last line often essentially repeated the first, though that is no longer customary.

I will give everyone the first line and the rest is up to you. I put alot of thought into this so don't let me down. The contest will run until the last tick of the clock in the first pre-season game.

And the first line is ....

There once was a Vike from Nantucket.

AMENDMENT: Due to the limited amount of words that correctly rhyme with Nantucket, the producers of this contest will allow limericks that begin with the location of your choice ... such as -

There once was a Vike from my bung hole.
Looked just like the waste in my T-Bowl.
He smelled worse than my arse.
His teams talent quite sparse.
Caged him with my pigs like a stink pole.

-OR-

There once was a Vike from south 'Sota.
Drove round in a purple toyota.
Just a retard - quite weird.
Like the clam with the beard.
The bottom of earths status quota.


Just a suggestion of course. Heh.

Also half of us here are Vikings fans, not that I mind the post. That may in fact be why you made it.

There once was a young man from Green Bay
He was sure to get a big pay day
Now, helps his teammates starve
His name, of course, Brett Favre
They'd be better if he quit last May

That poem just sucked. No rhythm to it at all, and I don't understand it.

LOL thanks for the spacing - actually had to do some work around here for awhile. Yeah I figured you were all Queen fans, but who can resist valuable prizes. Plus, most of you actually know what a limerick is. I'm not sure how to add the link still - because I see no little pencil. Not a big deal.

If you go to the Back to link list option there's a "pencil". I suppose I could work one into this page somewhere.

And please that limerick is genius. I can't help the "rhythm" what with it being fixed and all.

Also, what's not to get, he got his money early on and now sides with management in any of his teammates contract disputes. Not everything can be spelled out for you simpletons in 6 syllables when at least one of them has to rhyme with something else.

Not all limericks can contain wondrous examples of the English language in motion like "He smelled worse than my arse." and "Just a retard - quite weird...Like the clam with the beard."

There once was a fellow named Moon
Who ended up quitting too soon
Five more with no class,
The years go by fast,
For the Title-less state of the Loon

From a Lion's fan:

Millen was a Lions believer
Carved up the fans hearts with a cleaver
Coaches with no pretense
We dont need a defense
Lets just draft another receiver

My first attempt at a limerick, so bear with me:

There was once a coach who was Mike Tice
Who would rest his pencil just so nice
He could chew his loud gum
And his quotes were all dumb
Would sell super bowl tickets for price

I'd say pretty good effort. After America votes I think you will make it to the next round.

There was a team from Minnesota
Who believed talent had a quota
They shipped everyone off
Watching them is a boff
Makes it hard to care one iota.

Brett Favre is a sure hall of famer
Though his play has become a bit lamer
But Madden still gushes
And fans have man crushes
'Cause ev'ryone knows he's a "gamer"

They've evacuated the surrounding area and people in that area aren't supposed to go outside and are supposed to avoid breathing.

It was huge, I followed it all the way to work. It could not have been good for the environment. Also not good for the surrounding area. The Eau Claire County Humane Association is over there too.
