Limericks - Add One Line

This is something we used to do to fill a little time at the end of my old creative writing classes and it really gave us a giggle.

Each person must add one line to make a limerick. In order to keep track and a good momentum going, if you write the line number at the end of your line, the next person will know how far back he/she needs to go. When the person before you has done line 5 then you are free to begin a new one.

For Example :
There was a young man from Peru (1)
Who went to work on a skidoo (2)
he fell off head first (3)
he swore and then cursed, (4)
and if you don't believe it, it's true! (5)

Rather a poor example I'm afraid, but it was off the top of my head!

I'll start the ball rolling:

There was a fine horse from Dover... (1)
