Yet I would beg to differ Lin :
‘Looked smart in a purple cap’
I would suggest you need another syllable in here to make it bounce.
'Looked smart in a (blank) purple cap'
But then again – why would a dog wear a purple cap? What sort of a prat names their dog woof? I’m the first to stand up and point fingers but this new totalitarian regime smacks of New Labour, Central Control and the Nanny State. Why not just slap a £60 fine on wrongdoers?

What about one thread for Beginners and No Hopers, one for Nice Try Love but no Goldfish, and one the Big Lads - Come and Have a Go if you Think You’re Hard Enough. 


Just a thought.

Never mind comply with ISO 71233 Limericks.  Part 1:  Requirements for meter.  (psst, Lin - it's 9 syllables for line 2, although you can get away with 8 if it's got the right "bounce" ;) )


How about "Looking smart in a purplish cap"?  (but you have to pronounce "purplish" as three syllables to make it work)

But I think you've hit the crux of the matter Sir Nige - how can we concentrate on meter when we're distracted by pratty dogs named woof?  I think this merits further investigation.  In the meantime, I can't wait until it's my turn to start a new one, for which I'll use the line "On some men who were quite hard enough"

Anyway, back to the serious manly business of limericking:

Three dogs named Bark Wuff and Yapp
Looking smart in a purplish cap
Said "This rhyme is quite pants"
"You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet." - Kafka

that Gap caps worn by Yapp were just crap.
