    To settle this score,
    I'll remind you once more
    On ice we did kick yankee butt
    It just happens to be your good luck
    I know nothing of hockey - I'll duck
    I can tell you feel plucky
    maybe you'll get lucky
    and TranPlannette will give you a puck.

    (You do know we're kidding, right?)

    I've been spying too...

    There is this bloke from Toronto
    That takes his baths in vats of jell-o.
    The gelatin wiggles
    And Tranplanner giggles.
    Now we know why he's a happy fellow.

    Note: Just a limerick, not personal opinion!

    Again more rhetoric flies
    And I'm sick of american lies
    Canada's poor,
    We don't want a war,
    Besides, your pilots only hit allies

    Note: Again just a limerick, and not to diminish a real tragedy

    It's not that we think that it's fun
    to drop bombs on democracy's son
    but we can't prevent mourning
    by giving a warning
    when your radios are from World War I

    There was a young planner named Tex,
    Who...

    Nah, that one's just too easy!

    Of all brands of donuts I’ve eaten
    Tim Horton’s are yet to be beaten
    But I just have to say
    They’re from the USA
    Wendy’s owns the that shop you’re seat’s in.

    Tim Horton, BASS Champion

    Tim Horton is not who you think.
    He never set foot in a rink.
    To add to your fear,
    this old news makes clear
    why his donuts all have a fish stink:

    limerick

    This is my favorite limerick. It's not original so I don't submit it although it is tangentally planning related (meteorlogical).

    There was a young man from Damask
    whose balls were made out of brass.
    In stormy weather
    they'd clack together
    and lightning shot out his ass.

    There once was the man with "da plan,"
    Who said "build it wheverever you can,"
    We can zone it with ease
    But to all the NIMBYs:
    "You will soon find your ass in a jam."

    There once was a street in T.O.
    Where the cars did move very slow
    The motorists complained,
    They wanted more lanes!
    But still that traffic won't flow
    I never could do the haiku..but I think this could be a very creative never ending thread...

    but not limited to planning:


    A drink made from a rum colored dark,
    The fire began to crackle and spark.
    A board with a nail,
    POP! Did impale!
    "Doh! Now that's gonna leave a mark!"

    LIMERICK DAY - Always MAY 12th

    *bump*

    The limericks here are just too good to start a new thread!

    This Monday, May 12th is Limerick Day.
    It *honors* the 5-12-1812 birthday of Edward Lear, an English writer of sorts.
    (There's some evidence that his real birthday is May 13th, which is Leprechaun Day.)

    Anybody want to lead a LIMERICK CONTEST this year?

    There once was a planner named LP
    she's packed but not to Tripoli
    it's Spain for her
    please don't rob her
    and she'll return to us all rested and happy

    The mods would stay up,
    Brew hot in their cup;
    To fix double posts straight away!

    Happy Limerick Day!

    A bag of M&M chocolates I did eat.
    To satisfy my cravings for sweet.
    A quick sugar high
    But the scale will cry.
    Making up limericks is no easy feat.

    It's lame, you know, bumping old threads
    Those likely left better off dead
    You should start them anew
    I know that's what I'd do
    But you probably don't care what I said
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Well ain't that a barrel of schit?
    The proper way, I thought I did it.
    No more bumping for me.
    Or sugar candy.
    Is there any chance for a split?

    Just say the magic word, Toots
    And I'll threadsplit these posts from their roots
    As for trash talkin' in Candy
    you know how that goes, dandy
    You're ahead me now, but dragging your foots.
