Midweek limericks

Some of my favourites:

There once was a man from Nantucket
whose walrus oh so luved its bukket.
One day walrus groaned,
it had just gotten pwned;
Said the lolcat "O HAI, I JUST TUK IT".

There once was a [person] from [place]
Whose [body part] was [special case].
When [event] would occur,
It would cause [him or her]
To violate [law of time/space].

There once was a man named Bertold
Who drank beer when the weather grew cold
As he reached for his cup...
Oh, snap! You just got limerickrolled!

All these and more at LimerickDB: Top 150.

Bonus recommendation:

After reading all the acclaim poured over World of Goo, I downloaded the demo on my Mac. It's a series of physics puzzles that reminds me a lot of Fantastic Contraption.

I wound up buying the game, as WiiWare instead of as a computer game. It sits in your Wii menu looking like a channel. The WiiWare version costs $15 (the computer versions are $20) but you can only buy Wii points in multiples of $10. The WiiWare game won't allow to play player-built new levels, which sucks and isn't mentioned on the game's home page. The FAQ states: "The WiiWare supports up to 4 players in a 'pick up 'n' play' co-op mode. The PC version has online leaderboards for each individual level. Other than that, they're the same."

No, they're not.
