    An aerial chap from the forum
    Talked of different scansion decorum
    But what he forgot
    (And he really should not)
    Is that it's his turn to start the limerick off, while we've got a quorum.

    (And that it just sounds better if you start off with 2 lines of nine syllables each).

    There once was a man on a hunt
    Whose back was really his front
    When shooting his rifle

    There once was a fella from Wales
    Whose limericks never would rhyme.
    When asked why this was,
    He said, "I don't know!
    I'd better not try it again!"
