I don't know if anyone has ever risen to the challenge before, but, well, it's a slow day at work :-)

There was a young man from Schenectady
Who fell foul to unfortunate synecdoche
To the doctor he said
stop the blood to my "head"
and got a lobotomy instead of a vasectomy

OK, not great, but what can you do with those words! :-)

Hi Brian,

Actually, I've collected about twenty.

I've private-messaged you about the prize.

Best,
Ron

I know it's a bit strange, but this thread being what it is, would people mind posting their limericks (as long as there's 20-odd of them, and Ron doesn't keep a big "silly limericks" file).  I've got one, but I'm not posting it unless others want to share.

One day I had a vasectomy,
By the doctors in Schenectady,
 Thought I'd lost the whole thing,
 Which I'd borrowed from Ming,
But my fears were due synedoche.

Hah! And I didn't even know precisely what a limmerick WAS until tonight (other than that it rhymed). Yeah, baby! Ouch! That's really disturbing!

OK, you asked for it.

There once was a man from Schenectady,
Who decided to have a vasectomy.
Though no longer whole,
His part met its goal,
So he renamed his penis "synechdoche."

Anyone else sick enough to write one of these?

I believe I was the first person to write Ron a "synechdoche" limerick, but I don't have it anymore. If Ron wants to post it, he has my blessings, but I don't recall it being anything to get excited about.

A bragging young man named LaRoche
did travel by airplane in coach.
I showed him this thread,
And outloud he read,
but mispronounced it "sin-e-doach."

Poor Ron, I wonder if he expected each and every person who read his throw-away dare to send him a bad limerick. Here was the one I sent him:

There once was a jerk from Schenectady
Who wanted to get a vasectomy
"I'll feel just a prick,
Then I won't be a dick."
But that was mistaken synecdoche

Here is Joshua's.

Here's mine:

The hospital up in Schenectady
Terribly botched my vasectomy
I'd cross half the damn earth
To give that town its berth
--But perhaps I'm committing synecdoche.

Well, given "vasectomy" and a word meaning "to mistake the part for the whole," I imagine the plot of most of these cockamamie limericks is going to be pretty foreordained. But here's a go anyhow:

In Schenectady for a vasectomy,
I was victim of flagrant malprectomy.
Not synechdote, worse:
'Twas just the reverse.
And they say they can't give back my dicktome.

Ok, ok, I've been convinced...but don't say I didn't warn you:

Over lunch he had a vasectomy,
Resulting in odd synedoche.
For whenever he came
It didn't taste quite the same,
Said the women of Schenectady.

Well, here's my go at it:

There once was a man from Schenectady
Who meant to undergo a vasectomy.
But when he said "I want fixed,"
The procedures were mixed,
And he became a victim of synecdoche.

All the others I've read are about as good (bad?).  This is very silly.  I approve.
