    Brava! When they went on to enquire what was in his pocket

    Richard Armitage admitted it was only… his rocket!

    That is an epic poem, J, and as usual you have totally nailed it. Everything is in there – who needs that magazine now. And it is all committed to posterior… eh… posterity. Bravo!

      Aw, thanks! Though I often do develop a limerick-urge, I confess I hadn’t thought to do one until Perry prodded me. =)

    And thank you for that, now I have Elton John’s “Rocket Man” in my head! 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GAKOLOnfV4
    Well, it’s the morning now and I can’t say that I remember what I dreamt. It can’t have been anything bad, however, because I woke up cheerful enough…

    Some delicious rhymes in there! I like “evaded” and “graded” 🙂 Also “ant” and “scant”!

      Thanks! This one was extra fun. Once I started I pretty much had to cover the entire interview… in fact I can’t think of a better interview to cover in limerick mode. Absurdity begets absurdity!

    Excellent. Antidote to all those jokes about having a small penis when he was playing Thorin?

      LOL… Thanks! I seem to have missed the small penis jokes… all I recall is that he had the longest sword!

        the ones about going to the loo when dressed as Thorin and being disappointed, are the ones I am thinking about.
