Caption poem--Jabberwocky parody, finally completed (from latest Caption Contest) Can't Post

I just wanted to b.u.m.p. the latest entry in the most recent Caption Contest thread, which has been pushed back off the first page. Just in case anybody's been looking for it, here is the collaborative parody a few of us got started.

I had fun with that one! Thanks Stormcrow for originating that thread, and thanks everybody who contributed!

Excellent! [In reply to] Can't Post

That's hilarious -- thanks for putting that all together into one full poem (and finishing it off!).

on behalf of the contributing parodist-poets, thanks :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

Glad you enjoyed it Ro!

There should be more like it, I'd say! What'll be next--You Are Old, Uncle(Cousin) Bilbo? Twinkle Twinkle Evil Bat? The Balrog and the Conjurer (The Walrus and the Carpenter)? Wink (in best Jim Carrey voice:) Somebody START me!

Bravo! [In reply to] Can't Post

Great job, Ruxendil and Company!

I cannot deny that my interest is piqued by "The Balrog and the Conjurer." Wink

*applause* That's So Great :D [In reply to] Can't Post

A perfect tribute to a fantastic thread... I'm sorry I missed it :(

So here's a little fun to go along with it ;)

So SMILE you weathered Wizard
and flash those mushroomed teeth.
The wargs of Gundabad you dared
sure of the Rhos'bels' feet.

On behalf of the gang, thanks gramma :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

If I may speak for us all, we missed you in putting in your part in it. Thanks for your added verse! And maybe next time you'll join in the making, like if we do, say, You're a Troll, brother William as a possibility. Smile

Asked and answered; I'll start! [In reply to] Can't Post

'You're a troll, brother William,' the young dwarf said,
'And quite long advanced is the night;
And yet you are searching for nice sandwich bread -
Do you think that it's wise in this light?'

My bit [In reply to] Can't Post

First Arandiel's bit, then mine in bold:

'You're a troll, brother William,' the young dwarf said,
'And quite long advanced is the night;
And yet you are searching for nice sandwich bread -
Do you think that it's wise in this light?'

"In a stew," muttered Bill, while Tom and Bert licked their chops,
"We hope Dwarf will ease hunger pains;
And once we know perfectly how to cook one,
Why, we'll eat 'em again and again!"


Next...?

Smile

Aw heck! missed a rhyme! [In reply to] Can't Post

 
Ok Ok that was just a "draft". Let'z try this again.

First Arandiel's bit, then mine, revised, in bold:

'You're a troll, brother William,' the young dwarf said
'And quite long advanced is the night;
And yet you are searching for nice sandwich bread -
Do you think that it's wise in this light?'

"In a stew," muttered Bill, while Tom and Bert looked,
"We hope Dwarf will ease hunger pains;
And once we know perfectly how it is cooked,
Why, we'll eat 'em again and again!"


Ok better. Next...?
