Here now my contribution to a Boston limerick thread. Imagine Carl Kassel reading it in his well-modulated yet rhythmically stilted voice for added effect.
A Northeastern student was braggin'
That he was now back on the wagon
But when the Sox lost in ten
They found him again
'Neath the Jager tap at Cask'n Flagon.


and a tip o' the lynch lid to xiphias for making the last line more gooder.

Dude... You totally (like whoa) need to submit stuff to the OEDILF.

(I suddenly find myself inspired to write a limerick that makes liberal use of the phrase "like whoa." Updates to follow. Maybe.)

Love it except the last line feels just slightly off for some reason. "Nursin' a Jager at the Cask'nFlagon" is as close as I got, but that's not quite right either.

I agonized over that for all of 10 seconds. :) There's a quick kludge involving "under", sure, but the mental image is what counts here and there have been more egregious kludges in the limerick's illustrious past.

Or "'Neath the Jager tap at Cask n' Flagon."

The heck is this, Flip This Limerick? I didn't sign any release forms! Turn those camera lights off, they're bright! You're not going to air this, are you? What if I constantly flipped the camera off? Wait, wait, what, is that my poetic license? Give it back! It's good until 2009! Holy Jesus! What are all these goddamn animals?!
