OEDILF

This is just wonderful: The Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form. The only disappointment was to find that they are only working on a limited set of words at a time -- Aa to Ar right now. So I can't submit the entry I already had for "waltz" (and it'll probably be a very long time before I can). Still, I can see myself spending an inordinate amount of time writing limericks for this thing.

huzzah! more converts to the flock! five-line humorous verse is remarkably addicting. it's like the poetry analogue of potato chips--you can never write just one. we shall be commiserative limerick junkies.

two commis'rative limerick junkies,
that's us--the OEDILF has got flunkies.
but it could be lots worse
than composing short verse--
and i hear girls think poets are hunky.

Workshopping your lim! That's what they do there and LOTS of it.... Grow a thick skin!

Two Bohemian limerick junkies,
That is us! The OEDILF has got flunkies--
But it could be lots worse
Than composing short verse;
I hear girls think that poets are hunky!

Maybe you could enter it under Bohemian!
