Aye laddie, don't say you don't know
What ye've done with this comic, so droll!
While the posts fly in fast
Let us all lift a glass
Of Sapporo for Piro the Troll!

Nani? Baka?

*sigh* this is not a good day to be in MT Forums...

(hrmm... a limerick thread, eh?)

Announcing "Dead Piro Day" leaves room to doubt,
That we'd like the comic when it finally comes out,
Then everyone sees,
How Piro can tease,
And gives us forum monkeys something to rant about.

I'm with you Moot.

I guess it's time for another reference to:

Mmmm, strip pimp.

....

Why the hell do I get this feeling that what I just said had kinky connotations?

Posted by: Shoka May 31 2002, 01:57 AM
For the few here who's humor seems broke,
I'll try once to explain to you folk:
The name of this game
Is tribute, not flame!
Get a grip! Get a beer! Get the joke!

I think your post title throws people off track. Never mind, forget it.

Nice limericks, tho. Too bad I've not a single poetic fibre in me, so I can't contribute.

Posted by: Yoshi6400 May 31 2002, 02:46 AM
Gomen again... I'm in that "Lack of sleep/serious" mode again... x_x

And no, I'm not going to make another reference. (I more than made my point )

Posted by: Shoka May 31 2002, 02:52 AM
Ah well, sorry I got "me Irish" up, gomen. I didn't really mean for this to be a "limerick's only" thread (though telliamed's post was a nice surprise). I just wanted to comment on how marvelously designed to spark comment today's comic is, as we have seen!

And btw, I can't do poetry either, which is why I do limericks!

Posted by: Yoshi6400 May 31 2002, 02:55 AM
This is only the BEGINNING... There's still a whole day ahead of us.

Are you that bored that you decided to write that?

Posted by: PsychoKick May 31 2002, 05:02 AM
'Twas prior the A-Kon jaunt,
of a scene he judged too risque to flaunt.
But in a surprising reverse,
did the conscious perverse-
-ly demand "Give the fans what they want!"

... eh, okay, that really sucked. I gotta stop pulling these all-nighters; they be frying mine brainsies. tongue.gif

Posted by: Azuki May 31 2002, 06:14 AM
Sucked? I especially liked that one.

Posted by: affert May 31 2002, 07:14 AM
There was a concience from MT
who said "Let the fans look at me"
Our great Piro said "No
I won't give them a show"
She's not helping much, isn't she?

There once was a young man named Ed
Whom people suspected was dead
For he angered poor Ping
Who threw him with zing
And a wall was clipped by his head!

I can't believe no-one's thought of this before now, given that the haiku threads pop up all the time.

Actually, people have. Last summer, along with the hiaku, there were many limericks written as well. I, unfortunatly, was absent from the forums for most of the school year, so I don't know when those died off, but it was probably a while ago.

Piro the Troll


What do you say that for? I do not think it means what you think it means.

I grow more confused with people's definitions of "troll" each day. Unless, of course, you mean that Piro's hiding out under a bridge gobbling up McConville Goats Gruff that trip-trap overhead.

Posted by: Crash May 31 2002, 01:15 PM
Ooh, limericks!! lemmee try one, lessee who should the subject be about?? Junpei? aah! I've got it!

*clears throat*

There once was a dude named Junpei
For his job didn't get enough pay,

Then the grand Ninja Master,
Told him to hunt down that bastard,

And drag Largo back to the school


hehehe, sorry bout the bad words, and no offense to Largo, he's my hero in fact

Posted by: Crash May 31 2002, 01:27 PM
ok, I can do better than that one, lemmee try again (in true limerick format this time)

Piro, you needa recheck your information,
said Seraphim on magical-girl-transformation,

I don't mean to be rude,
but I should have been nude,

replied Piro, that'll get you on conscionce probation!



there, that one's a little better I think, thought both of em up in less than 10 seconds each (it shows doesnt it )

say, wouldn't Piro look so silly with a winged, glowing, small naked girl spinning above his shoulder??

============================================================

============================================================

Three pairs of one, and a half dozen of the other, really. I usually interpret a troll to mean a post meant to provoke a reaction (not just a mis-statement of fact to that end), and a flame as a criticism, usually gratuitous and often egregious, by someone who enjoys abusing others.

As people who produce flames are often referred to as flamers, people who produce trolls should probably be referred to as "trollers", especially as the term is (evidently) abstracted from the language of fishing. (Though perhaps I'm wrong about that - I realize that the absolute correct use of these terms is often used to separate those who are "in the know" from newbies, but I really couldn't care less). Nevertheless, the image of the fantasy troll, lurking in wait for an unsuspecting victim, seems so wonderfully apposite to the person who writes trolls, that I can't help characterizing them in this way.

As for my application of the term to Piro, I'm just teasing, as this comic seemed destined to inspire a greater-than-usual number of posts - an effect of which Piro could hardly have been unaware.

Most of the people who have posted in this thread seem to have apprehended the spirit of my use of this term without the need for an explanation. I hope that this post will clear up my motives for the rest. In the words of a Jack Vance character: "if I must elucidate the obvious more than twice, I often become gloomy."

Thanks for all the really neat limericks, folks! I really didn't expect to see so many, and the variations that have spawned in this thread have all been highly entertaining.

*is becoming quite fond of the second Limerick he wrote*

Posted by: Cryshalo May 31 2002, 09:25 PM
In Megatokyo now,A fine line is being tread;
A need to please the addicts in the threads
Without being risque or more
With one's own paramour.
Who forgot to tell Piro chivalry was dead?

Ack, grumble..... Early morning still for me, haven't finished my coffee. Maybe when I've woken up.

Posted by: FedermanD Jun 1 2002, 09:41 PM
Well, Miho was not feeling well,
And we thought that we heard her death knell,
But rescued by Ping-chan
Was she, and that thing can
Be more than just an empty shell.



Oh, and on a completely unrelated note, an Anime North-inspired haiku:

Masquerade '02,
Panda comes to entertain:

Posted by: darkmalice2002 Jun 1 2002, 10:47 PM
In a thread with bored readers
A newbie comes by,
With talk of the feeders,
Of nudeness implied


When an MT manic
Is new 2 the ph0rum
Does he ph33r the panic
Or talk 2 ppl about nudeness in a saraphim transphormation.

j/k

I suck but, I think piro did a good job, making an interesting comic, without aving 2 do much.

I hate dead piro days

Posted by: Shoka Jun 2 2002, 01:34 AM
One more bow to the man who pulls our strings:

I hope Piro is having a ball,
And I'm sure he'll be tickled by all
Of the chaos he's pitched,
A small portion of which
He's generously granted MacHall!
