2004. What the ale?

When it comes to beer drinking, "Chug" Millikan
Is a guy who sure knows how to swill a can
In a second or two
He can quaff a whole brew
I'm not lyin', it's true, yes he really can.


  1. In retrospect, I fear I've plagiarized from this well-known limerick:

    A wonderful bird is the Pelican
    His beak can hold more than his belly can
    He can hold in his beak
    Enough food for a week
    But I'm damned if I know how the hellican.

    I knew something about mine felt familiar but it took 4½ hours for my memory to "give me the bird."

    What do you think? Is mine different enough to stay?

    1. Yes it is. You've plagiarized nothing. The only thing the 2 verses have in common is a hint at consumption, and the word 'can.' Other than that, they are completely unrelated and unlike each other. You couldn't even put them in the same story in a relevant way. Keep it posted. Clever little limmie, btw.

      In those 4 and a half hours, you could have cooked a meal, eaten, washed the dishes, used the toilet, watched a show on TV, and written another limerick. Oh, the fruitless pang of worry! (unless you're a great multi-tasker)
