Blogging game 2: Mystery Limericks

EDIT : I have added the answers after each limerick, but behind a link, so you can still play if you like!

A blogger called ******** from France
Was so talented given a chance
with a curly pink thing
she could make a pig sing
though she never did teach it to dance


... This is a mystery limerick. Click here for the answer

It is about someone in my blog roll. (About a post that they have written).

Their name has the same number of letters as the ******** (8).

I challenge you to find the person ... and then to make up a limerick clue about someone in your blogroll, and post it in the comments so we can all play along!

When you find each answer, don't post it in the comments ... no, because other people are still playing! Instead, email it to me, and later today, or early tomorrow (not that early, it's a bank holiday) I will make a leader board and put it up on the blog.

You will get one point for correctly identifying the blog / blogger (it can be a blog name or a blogger name). You will get an extra point if you identify a specific post that is referred to in the limerick. Don't forget that you can search a blog, and blogger for key words - you don't have the read the whole damn thing ...

Ready?

Steady?

Go!


------------------------------------------
under here I am listing the clues people have made up since we started

2 - by Ms Melancholy

A blogger called **** tried to please,
With a comp in his house of cream cheese,
Stray won it, the bugger
But he didn't hug her
Cos she only comes up to his knees

3 - by me

A blogger called **** did confess
of his liking for wearing a dress
he looks gorgeous and fine
when he's dressed the the nines
in a black number from M&S

(leads to a post) - Click here for the answer

4 - by Ms Melancholy

A blogger called ***** has a tongue
For words that are beautifully strung
She’s not easy to diss
For she sees what we miss
I think she is channelling Jung

(leads to a post) - Click here for the answer

5 - by me

A blogger called ****** did speak
of her need to squeal, squawk, pop and squeak
her top explanation
caused such fascination
She was bloody well post of the week!

6 - by Caroline

There is a blogger, I call him *************
Over him we do often swoon.
His talents are rather vast,
He crooned lyrics in the past.
But alas we will not meet him soon.

7 - by trousers

In this post, **** never fails
To mimic one who writes tales
OMG!OMG!
With warped typography
He's scared that she'll go off the rails

(leads to a post) - Click here for the answer

8 - by me

a blogger called ****** did paint
us a picture peculiar and quaint
she might cause you to giggle
if she touched your middle
but koumpounophobic she ain't


(leads to a post) - Click here for the answer

9 - by Ms Melancholy

******** has opened his press
Forced into it out of excess
One blogger has banned him
For chatting at random
Those rules, he can’t help but transgress

(leads to a blog, not a post) - Click here for the answer

10 - by Ms Melancholy

*** ****** has a blog that’s artistic
And an outlook on life that’s holistic
She’s starting to write
But it’s hard to delight
Cos she lives with a man who’s autistic

11 - by Clare

A blogger who knows about death
Has talent for stopping your breath.
But you know the one
She's **** * ***
And no, she's not called Beth.

12 - by Clare

I like that ** **********
Surprisingly light and jolly,
She'll lift up your mood
Might even serve food
And def'nitely isn't a wally.

13 - by Caroline

******* shows drawings of his past,
That through time and tribulations did last.
He always cleaned his teeth,
And was frightened of the belief,
That a bomb would blow up his house in one blast.

I got it! Here's another:

A blogger called **** tried to please,
With a comp in his house of cream cheese,
Stray won it, the bugger
But he didn't hug her
Cos she only comes up to his knees

Hooray! We want more!

Blogger Stray said...

Ms M Ms M! I got it (very good!).

Ok. Here's another:

A blogger called **** did confess
of his liking for wearing a dress
he looks gorgeous and fine
when he's dressed the the nines
in a black number from M&S


.... go!

27 May, 2007 16:30  
Blogger Ms Melancholy said...

I think this one is a bit harder. And it does refer to a specific post.

A blogger called ***** has a tongue
For words that are beautifully strung
She’s not easy to diss
For she sees what we miss
I think she is channelling Jung

27 May, 2007 16:36  
Blogger Stray said...

Ooooh! Ms M .. that one is tricky. I shall have to go and think and search a bit!

27 May, 2007 16:39  
Blogger Stray said...

I think I am close Ms M ... but I still need the actual post ...

Here's another from me ...

A blogger called ****** did speak
of her need to squeal, squawk, pop and squeak
her top explanation
caused such fascination
She was bloody well post of the week!

Blogger trousers said...

Yep I got the first one...

27 May, 2007 16:51  
Blogger Ms Melancholy said...

Go trousers!

27 May, 2007 16:55  
Blogger Stray said...

Oh! Ms M! I think I got it - did I? Did I?

If so - brilliant! I hadn't read that post before and I loved it. Really loved it :)

I like this! I am finding new blogs that I will be going back to :)

Blogger Stray said...

Well done trousers! Are you making up a clue? I do hope so ... I am sure you will have the gift :)

Sx

27 May, 2007 17:01  
Blogger trousers said...

I'll see if I cna think of one - though I don't know if I'll get time before I go out. I'll get back to you as soon as....

27 May, 2007 17:09  
Blogger Caroline said...

I'm crap at there -

But ...

There is a blogger, I call him *************

Very good Cas! I got it! I got it!

Blogger Ms Melancholy said...

Hey lovely Caroline, you are dyslexic - you are allowed to do free form limericks without the scan. I think I got it. I know exactly who you crush on!

Blogger Stray said...

trousers -that is a work of poetic genius!

here's a tough one :

a blogger called ****** did paint
us a picture peculiar and quaint
she might cause you to giggle
if she touched your middle
but koumpounophobic she ain't


(I think that is the longest word I have ever used on my blog apart from when I cheat and write thankyouverymuch as if it's one word but that doesn't count).

Oh! this is lovely :) I am going out in an hour and I am not at all ready because I am having toooooo much fun playing mystery blog limericks.

No particular post referred to here, just the blog.

Blogger Caroline said...

I know the last Ms M one and I so do not say OMG trousers!

hmmmmm

:)

27 May, 2007 18:15  
Blogger Ms Melancholy said...

OMG! You so do Caroline! (Or is it the other one that trousers is referring to who says it? So hard to tell you apart at the moment. Is he stalking you, or is he channelling you?!) Let me know if its the former, and I'll sort him out for you.

27 May, 2007 21:07  
Blogger Caroline said...

Oh but Ms M - I think he only loves me to get to you. I am sooooo always the 'friend' of the object of desire. So always.

xxx

27 May, 2007 21:12  
Blogger Ms Melancholy said...

Shit Caroline, me too! We will have to check with him as to who is the friend and who is the object. Gosh, so much fun to look forward to at the launch!

Please can you announce the winner in the morning as I was working until 930 and have just started getting in to addictive Sunday game 2.

27 May, 2007 22:26  
Blogger Ms Melancholy said...

Hey Brum, we knew you were working honey so the game runs right through the bank holiday. Fab! Nothing rude now, mind. And another effort from me:

*** ****** has a blog that’s artistic
And an outlook on life that’s holistic
She’s starting to write
But it’s hard to delight
Cos she lives with a man who’s autistic


Blog and post.

27 May, 2007 22:41  
Blogger trousers said...

Glad to hear this runs through tomorrow as well. I'm too full of lovely food, pleasantly lulled by that (and Melt-Banana's new album) to be able to switch my brain on.

More tomorrow then :)

27 May, 2007 22:51  
Blogger brumcunian said...

Woo! Glad it runs through the bank holiday as I'm shattered tonight and so my brain is not functioning. I'll look at the limerics again in the morning.

Blogger Clare said...

I haven't got it, but am still going to compose a limerick mystery, cos I love writing limericks. Hope that's allowed...

A blogger who knows about death
Has talent for stopping your breath.
But you know the one
She's **** * ***
And no, she's not called Beth.

And another:

I like that ** **********
Surprisingly light and jolly,
She'll lift up your mood
Might even serve food
And def'nitely isn't a wally.

Blogger The Moon Topples said...

An homage, but not an official entry:

A blogger known simply as Stray
was looking for something to say.
A limerick was written,
her readers were smitten,
and now they might limerick all day!

28 May, 2007 01:14  
Blogger Stray said...

Maht! That is FAB. :) I love it.

(and yes, you were right - have some points!).

Come and play properly when you can!

Clare - very good - I have emailed you what I think the answers are ...

Cas and Ms M - I am sure he loves both of you :) It's me who has no one to love them! Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh....

Brum - excellent ... we were awaiting your arrival. This game is clearly made for your talents and I am rather concerned that if we reach triple figures of actual limericks my blog might crash ...

trousers - so lovely to see you back after a foray into the 'real' world. Hopefully you were eating brain food (like fish, not faggots - who ever thought 'Brains' was a good brand for faggots? ) and will be on tip top form today.

I have put the leader board up - you shall all be famous!

28 May, 2007 11:42  
Blogger trousers said...

A few more answers are on their way to you via email, stray...

28 May, 2007 12:46  
Blogger Ms Melancholy said...

Think I've got both of Clare's...... another on it's way if I can get my brain into gear.

28 May, 2007 17:47  
Blogger Stray said...

excellent Ms M! you are storming this ...

Anonymous trousers said...

Well done Ms M! I'm afraid I just didn't have the impetus today - once again, damned good fun though.

Thank you stray :)

Blogger sheepish said...

I am so dissappointed that I missed all the fun, especially in view of the first limerick!!!!
I was busy Sunday and Monday but will look out for the next bit of loony fun.
Great stuff from everyone.

Blogger JJ said...

Oh I am disappointed to have missed the live fun too. It's bank holiday here today, but sadly four days after yours!

31 May, 2007 11:49  
Blogger Stray said...

Sheepish and JJ - it's a shame you weren't around - especially as you both featured :) (I also suspect you'd have whipped up a few clues in a matter of minutes).

It was fun though :)

I think I am planning next blog games sunday 10th June. How does that suit people?

Blogger Matthew said...

Haha, this was a super game. I'll play next time if I'm quite present.

Matthew, I shall come and knock for you and ask if you can come out to play. Next sunday late afternoon ... the 10th of June :)
