There Once was a Silvery Screen…

Over on the Straight Dope Message Boards, people have started threads to summarize movies and books in limerick form. I thought I’d post my own contributions to the threads here to exhibit my fantastic cleverness. I, of course, went straight for the classics.

Some terrorists in search of a buck
Run a brand new skyscraper amok.
A cop not from LA
with no shoes saves the day.
Yipee-ka-yay, mutherfuck!

Two dudes were in danger of failin’.
Their future band plans were derailin’.
Flew through time with a phone,
And brought hist’ry back home.
Now all they need’s Eddie Van Halen.

A creepy, big-thighed hireling said:
“Master likes you.” Is he out of his head?
It could hardly be worse
And it carries a curse
The filmmakers are almost all dead

    Very nice! Do we get to experience other such classics as Manos: Hands of Fate or This Island Earth? Perhaps some Mel Brooks as well?

  2. Ian said,

    There’s Manos. I’ll think about the others later.

  3. JT said,

    Brilliant! Have you ever considered a career in comedic writing?

  4. Matt said,

    I’ll contribute one.

    A tough guy from Cuba is penned,
    Then gets his own drug trade to tend.
    He won’t be bossed,
    but gets double-crossed,
    Say hello to my little friend!
