Roadfood limericks

As long as we're on a poetry roll:

There once was a place called Felix's
Where the cook is good at everything he fixes
it cures everything but cancer
it's good for scientists or dancers
Whether studying pliates or double helixes

There once was a forum called Roadfood
that hosted an incorrigable brood
Turned me on to lots of good finds
and were never unkind
even when I was naughty or rude

(and a special dedication to my buddy in the Crescent City):

There once was a guy named Mayhaw
Who I believe ate all that he saw
Crawfish and gators
Okra and tomaters
Whether fried, pickled, parboiled or raw

    There is a dude named Bushie from Austin
    Whose intolerance for BS is awesome
    When posters get rough
    His criticism can be tough
    In some states would be considered outlawsome

    You know.......while we are on the subject of gators this weekend is the twentieth annual Alligator Festival in Luling, Louisiana. In true Louisiana fashion the fair site is located directly next to one of our biggest political boondoggles (we have so many it is hard to rank 'em, but it's way up there) The Luling Bridge. It is a space age looking bridge to nowhere across the Mississippi north of New Orleans.

    The fair however, has great food based around alligator meat and a pretty good musical line up including the "Little Band of Gold" which is best described as a supergroup made up of "swamp pop superstars". Locally they are known as "Lil Bag a Blow" for more obvious reasons.
    Hop on a plane and come "pass a good time" with us.

    There’s a guy on the river in Knox
    Who enjoys his libation on docks
    His name is Sundancer
    Ever ready with an answer
    To those in the Roadfood flocks


    And really, I'm just a harmless, luvable little fuzzball...

    There once was a lass named Elise
    whose cooking seemed never to cease
    she clanged around pots
    and served lots and lots
    til she completely ran out of grease!

    I was chewing one day on a pickle,
    Not eating a ghurkin? I'm fickle.
    Or beetroot? Ya mad!
    It makes my gut bad,
    And reduces my sh*ts to a trickel

    There once was a gal called Lone Star
    who could not open a jar
    she finally gave up
    said to heck with this sup
    and went down to the local bar

    There once was chick called Rusty,
    Whose pot and pans never grew dusty.
    She'd make up some chili,
    You'd sweat yourself silly,
    And grab for some bread that was crusty!

    Words to a song I wrote long ago:

    Got invited to a party and I asked what to bring
    no-one ever told me i had to listen to em' sing

    But there was food on the left and there was food on the right
    Cmon everbody gonna eat all night
    chorus:
    Lets eat, everybody, lets eat, cmon everybody lets eat

    Gonna drink cold beer and red and white wine
    gonna keep eatin' food til we're throwin up slime

    got Italian sausage and a hot dog on a bun
    cmon everbody, grab your fork and come

    chorus

    I was trying to think of one for you, but every time I try to rhyme Texas, I just keep hearing that song "Take the Money and Run"

    My daughter wrote this when she was a youngster, (well, she still is a youngster to me, but this was when she was about 12 years old)

    Hamburger fries and a coke
    Hamburger fries and a coke
    people get tired of hearing me say
    Hamburger fries and a coke
    but then when I eat it
    nothing can beat it
    hamburger fries and a coke

    She used to sing it to the tune of "Follow the yellow brick road"

    OK, It's My Turn....

    There once was a chick named ELISE
    Who's posted notes were obese
    But when she was rude,
    to the folks at Roadfood
    The MAYOR called his Food Police.


    OR Maybe...[:p]

    To All Those who posted on here
    At sometime during this year
    If we meet down in Austin
    or maybe in Boston
    The MAYOR will buy you a beer.


    HEY, Does Post # 888 equal "one and one-third" of a Devil?

    A country bumpkin named Truck
    Suddenly found that he was in luck
    On an interent forum
    That had reached quorum
    This makes no sense; I don't give a ... care.

    Mr. Mayor doesn't have it so rough
    Although apple farming is tough
    He's retired and happy
    And is made downright sappy
    By a little black pup named McDuff.

    Thanks Bushie,
    That was very kind of you...Especially considering that I just invited about 1100 folks over to your house to share a keg or two!!!
    For those of you who followed the saga of my dog...Wolfus, The Wonder Dog, had to be put-down a little over a month ago. He had been my companion for over 15 years. We decided to wait a bit before looking for a new pet We then tried one dog, but it just didn't work out for us or for him, so we returned him. A week ago we had the opportunity to get this little 7 week old Scotty. He already has taken over the house and yard. He divides his loyalty between "She" who feeds and waters and cleans...and "He" (me) who plays, exercises, and takes for rides on the tractor and truck. I do believe we have found an adequate successor to the "Wonder Dog" title. He is "McDuff"

    Aw! He is too cute !(the puppy I mean )

    Sorry about Wolfus-the-wonder-dog, but little McDuff looks like he will give you a run for your money.

    One of my co-workers just got a little minature schnauzer puppy, and I had the opportunity to babysit him overnight last night.

    In 20 years of marriage, and three babies, it is the first time I have ever heard my husband use the word "darling" as an adjective.

    Al-The Mayor-Bowen - that's a nice looking picture. Is that where you live? Looks like a nice place for a dog to go running around. Living in a big city, I get the opportunity to take my dog out AND clean up after him, something my surburban friends don't really have to worry about. I tell you, for all I love the city, I wouldn't mind getting out to the country just so my dog could run around freely (and I got free to use my hands for something other than cleaning up his messy waste).

    Anyway that's a super cute puppy you've got there. Sorry to hear about Wolfie, losing a friend is never easy, but I hope your new chum acts as a reminder of old times. :)

    Mr. Mayor, that's a really fine looking picture and pup - the kind that just breaks you out into smiles all over from just glancing it. Know you, the Mrs., and McDuff will have a great life together.

    Geoff,
    Yeah, we are about 20 min out of Louisville, in the hills near the Ohio River. Pretty area to retire to, especially after living a generation in the SoCal Mojave Desert.

    With his new puppy, the Mayor is pleased
    he doesn't even mind toilet training or fleas
    but what's got him undone
    is now girls ogle the wrong one
    'cause his new pup's even cuter than he is

    I've never really been much of a limerick fan, but your ode to The Mayor, right above, ElsieT, has converted me. Big Congratulations on an absolutely "over the top" job!

    A Saturday morning effort, to return us to the theme...

    Whenever we get in the mood
    We brag on our own favorite food.
    When others say "Nay,
    your choice tastes like hay."

    We tend to develop a 'Tude !

    She was left in a state of perplexes.

    The food options of travel is a fight
    It has caused me to do the Dr. Atkin's diet
    After three weeks of no carbs and lotsa fat
    My stomach has begun to get flat.
    Unfortunately it refuses to be quiet
