Music nerd limericks
by Jordan Eldredge
With the advent of limerickdb.com, which is full of nerdy limericks because it was started by the author of xkcd, I was inspired to author some nerdy limericks within my field of nerd-dom.
First the “Famous poem rewritten as a limerick” type*:
A man held his boy by his side
as through the dark night he did ride.
The boy’s health; it lessened,
The Erlkönig beckoned!
When they finally got home, the boy’d died.
And then the “Only funny to a small group of specific nerds” type:
When singing the minor mode keys,
in F# you must mind your ‘sis’.
Though vulgar and raw,
descending from ‘la’,
letter names are pronounced as: ‘fees ees’.
I have submitted them both, but have yet to see them appear on the site.
Update: I looks like my submissions to the database have been denied. Not up to snuff?
