yes JP, get a grip. Round his throat.

A unique entry from my student @jpLANEauthor

There once was a cartoon named Hall

Who at first sight appeared very small

But really had a big heart

And was known to be very smart.

One day she hooked up with a crew

Who were all very nice it is true

Except one was a mischievous elf

Who tried to leave poor Hall on the shelf.

You may be thinking I am a lune

To be talking this way about a cartoon

But Hall is as real as can be

Just follow her on Twitter and see.

Don’t know why the last line came out like that JP,  will try to sort it out!

Oh and another one from JP……

There was a girl from Jamaica named Joan
Who in truth was not very well known
‘Til she got herself in a tangle
Which turned out to be the right angle…

Until she met up with this strange crew
Who made her laugh ‘til she turned blue
With their antics and outrageous claims
Though here I will mention no names.

They all know who they are,
One claims to be a super star
Who writes even better than me.
Now, I ask you, how could that be?

Thank you 
for your limerick:-)

There once was a wizard on Twitter

Who worked out so he could be fitter
He Zumba’d and danced
With his wand in his pants
And now he can’t sit on his sitter
Good luck:-)
Congratulations to:

@WORRODRoger

Thank you to Gaynor Robertson for the following:

There once was a wizard on Twitter

who tried to make Gongle Laugh and titter

he cast a spell and made him laugh like hell
and that made all the other wizards sour and bitter
Good Luck Gaynor:-)

Thanks to Chris for this:

There once was a wizard on Twitter…
He’s stuck to it like a sticker…
He tweets all the time, cant find a rhyme
and now his lifes down the  shi**er.

Good Luck:-)

Last minute entry from Sketch (She wants one of your books @Grimnien! Cheeky isn’t she!

There was a young toon named Hall
Well versed in ye olde Texan drawl
She shot arrows by day
And at night she would say
“Awh shucks, it’s gerd’nyt t’ye’awl!”

Thanks

A naughty young Toon called Hall

Got a very tight grip on my ball.

When I asked for it back

She gave me a smack

And threw it right over a wall.

Good Luck!
