I tried to post this as part of a comment on Bubbly's, but the webshite crashed at that moment. Thoughtful comment, it was too. Oh well, here's my lymerick . . .

 

Bubbly

 

An ebullient lassie called Bubbly
Bent her limericks once, thrice and doubly
So the rhyme was all wrong
And her feet were too long
She’s averse to the form – lovely jubbly!

That web address went off the page but is still works. which is more than I can say for this website. I have completely lost Bubbly's "LIMERICK Glad Eyed Girl". I can see the summary but the poem and all comments have disappeared. Rowlocks!

Has this happened to anyone else?

"lovely jubbly".... LOVE IT! I had to buy my fiance the boxed set of Only Fools and Horses cause he likes it so much. He is originally from Slovenia, and evidently he watched it there all the time. I had never heard of it until I met him. "Lovely jubbly" is part of his everyday vocabulary I think.
Sorry for ramblin' but I do want to say this is a great poem. So witty and clever!

Thanks, native2. For your appreciation . . of my limerick and of Del Boy. I can just picture a group of Eastern European blokes cracking up when Del Boy fell through the bar; a classic moment -- a bit slap-stick but classic all the same. They tell me it's all in the timing.

Isn't it funny some times how poetry comes together. "Lovely jubbly" was the first phrase i thought about when starting that limerick. I knew it had to be the ending even though, if the reader is not English, or hasn't seen "Only Fools and Horses" it can't mean as much to them.

Thanks again for your appreciation.

Bubbly says poetic licence have I
And I’m certainly not a silly or shy
I’m happy and bubbly
But what the hell’s jubbly?
If you knew, you’d laugh till you cry

And what’s this you say of my feet?
I’ll have you know they’re really petite
They’re dainty and small
Because I’m not very tall
In fact, I’d say that they’re rather offbeat
