About the sunday, July 7th devlog:

Driving through rain, feeling blue
deep thoughts in my head (quite a few)
About seed numbers, diverse
with which to start my universe
the correct answer is: 42!

Are you feeling alone and undesired?
Are you lacking that romantic fire?
You need Katawa's LT hard drive!

I don't think I can finish this one without using a rhyme twice.
Hah, good sir, i recognize a challenge when I see one!

There once was a man from Regina
Whose wife was a prima ballerina
her eating was bad
she used way too much fat
So he told her "Eat more veg, Gina!"

Although in Latin it's probably said Regeena, the location isn't pronounced that way. The joke involving Regina as a rhyme is about female pudenda, if that helps the pronunciation. Good effort though :3
woops, my bad, everything & anything actually means specific and conformed

Now this, this is what I like to call rising to the occasion. Rembrandt comes through again :lol: :clap:

A nice idea.
I am afraid however that most contributors will wait for a chance to give the punch-line and leave the grunt work to others.

About the sunday july 14th devlog:

I can really trust my A.I.
to wipe everything from the sky
at the flick of a switch
and without any glitch
I can watch an enemy die!

We really need to get some kind of forum kudo system so that I can start bumping your karma for these :P

Thanks guys.
Writing these is a lot of fun and the responses in this thread are just great.
Kudo's to all participants and readers!! :thumbup:

About these limericks, I get a lot of help -since me being a Nederlander, English is a second language for me- from this website: http://www.rhymezone.com/ so i am cheating just a little bit. :oops:

About the week of july 21 devlogs:

Bring together a nerd and a nerd
(they gather in flock, mob or herd)
let them speak of tracing rays
and they will go on for days and days
Yup, I know, it's all rather absurd.

I have not forgotten you from the days of the KS comments Rembrandt. You made me laugh then and you continue to make me laugh. It is not easy to reproduce those days on a forum but I am glad you have found a place here. :D

I wish I had time to read all the creative literature as there are so many talented writers who deserve attention. Thank you for your contributions to the forum they are much appreciated. :clap:
