The Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form


Another interesting link from Boing Boing, The Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form--an attempt to create limericks for every word in English. They're still working on the "a"s right now, so the conference/convention/meeting area isn't begun yet, but here's one for attrition:

When you're fighting a war of attrition,

You must throw away all inhibition.

Then despite people's cries,

You exhaust all supplies

Until nothing remains but submission.

Obviously, the author, Suzanne Kreul, can't be a meeting planner or hotelier, though she writes a mean ditty! So all you limerick writers out there, sharpen your pencils! You can join the project here.
