hi! craaig. this one's a beauty. u've SURPASSED me. hey, why did u say 'the feet were too long'. i'm a "poet". i've POETIC LICENSE. ha! haa!! haaa!!! remember, i did mention it is a SILLY limerick. u got caught, eh! now i'm in form (informed) and what is JUBBLY.
hey, u know what, i thoroughly enjoyed ur comment on shaggy's poem on pun. that was the most creative and witty and entertaining response i've come across till date. and she's matched u word for word. i like that.
i'm sure, u'll keep up with this witty trend for me to return again and again for dollops. u've awakened my spontaneity. period. lol. ;-)
Thanks Bubbly. I love limericks. Sometimes, they come easily; other times, not at all.
Perhaps, we should try to construct a dactyl lymeric. Now that would truly be an anti-limerick.
And thanks for your comment on my puns. I actually loath puns. The tabloid newspapers over here always seem to squeeze a bad one or three into their headlines. GROAN !
To answer your question: if you copy and paste this . . .
. . . into your address bar you just might get a definition and explanation of "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?
i got it - "lovely jubbly". i've not watched "only fools and horses" as it is not aired here. it must be a hot show in UK. i must find more about it and see it too. i'm sure, it must be rip-roaring. do u watch it. it must be fun. lol. ;-)
Sadly, the show is no longer on; unless, perhaps, if one were to pay extra for a channel called UK Gold. I don't get it.
You can get small clips on YouTube if you search there.
That's a classic, but it is funnier with a longer lead-up. Del Boy is trying to be a yuppie in a yuppie singles bar, with a predictable lack of success.
hi! craaig. yes. the LIMERICK poem vanished in thin air and i've reported it to booksie guy and they r looking into it. meanwhile, i've posted it again as "l-geg". read urja's anti-limerick. and even olwen's "bubbly girl." god, booksie is bursting with talent and creativity. craaig, u've serious competition here. lol. ;-)
Good repair job Bubbly. It's a shame that we lost all those comments, complete with anti-limericks.
What is the meaning and/or significance of "I-geg"?
hi! craaig. the poem and comments've been restored, all thanx to booksie guy. i strongly wish u read urja's comment. read it in l- geg (limerick - glad eyed girl). this is developing like a chain.
delboy, it seems, was the heart of the sitcom. utube clip is interesting. is the uk gold not a free to air channel. i'd like to watch one whole episode. this is like those comedy shows - yes minister and here's lucy. those were the days. ;-)
Yes, you've got to pay to see "Only Fools and Horses" these days. I think you can get some episodes on DVD or VHS -- check out Amazon, or some such, if your curious enough to pay for it.
Yes, The memory of Derick Trotter (aka Del Boy) has become a part of British culture. Probably more like Lucy Ricardo in "I love Lucy" from the U.S. -- a cultural icon, so to speak. I think that both characters where loveable and that makes all the difference.
And yes, this is becoming a sort of chat room init?
Oh! I almost forgot to mention my other limerick on Booksie. It's called "Nature or Nurture". I hope that it doesn't offend.
HEY ^_^ great job, you guys are indeed haveing too much fun lol, so nice to have this entertainment.
Thanks katie. Yeah wordplay -- great innit?
All the best.
lovely one...awesome poem for an awesome girl...
Thanks Pratibha. Sorry to take so long to respond. I saw your comments just before I went away for 2 weeks. I hope the summer is going well for you and yours.
Now thats funny
Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the comment.
oh let me have a go please!!
(sorry, late read but better late than never eh?)
There hails a cool chappie called Craiig
Who spied how Bubbly's limerick was made
Tried to comment truly
On a web site unruly
Instead his own brilliant limerick displayed!!
Enjoyed your by-play with Bubbly.
Thank you, Anna Therese.
Yes, Bubbly's a peach. Classy Peach is bubbly. And booksie is lovely jubbly. Sometimes the banter can be as enjoyable as the poetry and prose. Like to spend more time here but duty calls.
"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.
You're so funny. This was to cute!
When happening across this website
The limmerick I saw was pure shite
It failed to bring a smile
So I lingered a while
And this critical review did write
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
