    There is a thread that somewhat died about 3-4 years ago called Scuba Limericks. I'm restarting a thread to find a ScubaBoard Limerick Laureate. This can be fun. The plan is to post a limerick about someone on SB. This "contest" can last as long as the limericks keep coming, but the plan is to count the "likes" as of 23:59 on the 31st of December 2017 to name the Limerick Laureate of 2017. Obviously, the more you post the more potential likes you'll get.

    There are some rules:
    1. You must have the subject's name or nickname in the first line of the limerick.
    2. Speaking of the subject, you must have their approval to post about them which means they get to see it first. If anyone comes up with a disapproval after posting will result in the post being deleted and the poster being disqualified.
    3. Nothing mean or mean spirited should be posted.
    4. It must be somewhat SCUBA related.
    5. Post only one limerick per post. This simplifies voting (by request)
    6. Keen observations, double entendres and poignant presentations are encouraged. HAVE FUN!

    The contest will run from 06:00 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) 11 November 2017 until 23:59 UTC December 31, 2017. A new contest will begin at the stroke of midnight UTC (6:00 pm 12/312017 US Central Time) January 1, 2018.

    I will post a few to get things started. The contest doesn't start for another couple of hours. I have already cleared these with the subjects.

    @MargaritaMike
    @MargaritaMike of lawsuits, has a fear.
    Close to his DM-card you’ll not be near.
    His C-card now gives rise
    To the thought “Is it wise
    To dive with paranoia?” Let’s go have a beer!

    And another:
    There’s this diver called @MargaritaMike
    Who, on the surface, is kind of hard to like.
    But when down below
    You soon come to know
    You’re glad you didn’t tell him, “Take a hike!”

    Cameron (@northernone ) has been having trouble with equalizing for the past few days. He prompted this thread so I did a few about his diving:

    @northernone ’s diving is a flop.
    When he goes down his ears stay on top.
    He has tried his best,
    But Cameron’s forced to rest
    Until the air in his ears goes “pop”.

    Poor @northernone can’t do any dives.
    It’s difficult for him to realize.
    He’s wearing a frown
    Cause he can’t go down
    Until he gets his ears to equalize.

    @northernone goes out on the boat,
    But while there he must stay afloat.
    He can’t go below
    For his outer ears don’t know
    How to be equal with the air in his throat.

    But today:
    @northernone planned to dive today.
    It seems his ears decided to play,
    But along came a storm
    That was far from the norm,
    And hunkered down he did stay.


    @RayfromTX
    Ray from Texas as a diver is new
    Although his dives number more than a few
    Some may want to laugh
    At the fact that he’s SB Staff,
    But his comments are rarely askew.

    And finally @The Chairman :
    There is Pete, known as @The Chairman
    Who on ScubaBoard tries to be fair.
    His comments when landed
    Are all even-handed
    He must be on Nitrox, not just on air.

    Remember - Have fun and nothing mean.

    Cheers - M²

    How is voting for (liking of) a Limerick done if there are multiple Limericks in a single post?

    I guess I didn't clarify that point. I'll edit the rules to state one limerick per post. All of the ones that I just posted are not in the running. Also, you're liking the limerick, but it's the poster who gets the vote.

    Thanks for the question and input.
    Cheers - M²

    For MargaritaMike:

    There was a diver Mike
    He speared a nasty pike
    It turned on his spear
    Which gave him some fear
    And delivered a nasty bite

    For Francesea:

    Frances went diving at night
    The current kept pushing her right
    With her buoyancy controlled
    She managed to hold
    And avoided a hell of a fright

    For The Chairman:

    The Chairman is really NetDoc
    He dives with a waterproof clock
    Cave diving is safe
    If you're on time and keep pace
    Too much lead and you'll drop like a rock

    For The Chairman:

    Tech diving is done by The Chairman
    He really doesn't breathe air man.
    Cause Trimix is king
    He marks caves with a string
    So there's never a reason to despair man

    Cozumel puts on a good show
    When bubbles you're wanting to blow
    It's changing my life
    And that of my wife
    That bubbly gal mrsmeaux
