#99 Crapometer

Category: dog-geral

There once was a poodle named Yapp
who discovered his synopsis was crap
His jot and his tiddle, upon which were piddled
was rejected as cliche ridden fat.


words fail me

Doesn't rhyme either.

It looks like a clean limerick, but the anapestic third and forth lines were made into one.

Aha, so given that every word that Miss Snark utters is loaded with wisdom, I think that with this critique she must be telling us...rhyme not essential in a synopsis.

Guess I'd better strip out the rhyming couplets. Maybe I'll keep the iambic pentameter though...

The rhyme and meter are streets better than those posted by "Our Editors" as "inspiration" for this contest.

Not true. Just a tad off. Better would be:

There once was a poodle named Yapp,
who figured synopses were crap;
with jot and with tiddle, upon which he'd piddle
he riddled the rest with his rap.

I like it - It has a nice beat - I can dance to it =)

(and I think I may have stayed up way past my bedtime tonight!)

Isn't it supposed to be "jot and tittle?"

McKoala said...

Bernita, I assume that the 'tiddle' is a humorous reference to what KY produces after drinking excessive amounts from Miss Snark's gin pail - pure gin tiddle.
