Somebody said "Are you doing another Knockout Quiz".

I said "No".

Somebody else said "When are you doing another Knockout Quiz".

I said "Never".

I then said "Shall I do another Knockout Quiz".

A Circus Host said "I would be delighted."

So - for those who are in the know - this is the start of another Knockout Quiz.

For those who are not in the know - this is the start of another Knockout Quiz.

Rules:

1)Quizmaster's ruling is final (most of the time and it only changes if your appeal is funny).

2) By entering the competition you agree to lose. There can only be one winner and it will not be YOU.

3) Each "every so often" I specify a topic and you have to pick an example of that topic that has not been selected by anyone else.

4) There will be a criterion (or in some rare cases criteria) that indicate to you that some choices may be better than others.

5) Those who have played before have an unfair advantage as they will know some of the tricks that you will have to pick up as you go along.

6) Rules may be added, deleted, changed, amended or fiddled with as we go along.

7) New rounds will always begin between 22:00 and 24:00 English time. This means early morning for the Australians and Afternoon for the Americans.

8) The competition is for entertainment and also edification (look it up) and anyone taking it too seriously is liable to victimisation by the organiser i.e. me.

SO: If you would like to participate and be one of those in right at the start you need to complete the following process ......

WRITE A 5 LINE LIMERICK CONTAINING YOUR SHIP NAME as displayed in this thread, so as I am the Quizmaster mine could be ......

There was an old fogey Quizmaster
Who tried to create a disaster
He started a quiz
It went like a whizz
But finished 'three legs and a caster'

O.K. Roll up, roll up! New Knockout Quiz starting.

When she slipped and let go of her fan.

Rugasaw was such a gent
He bowed every where he went
He bowed on a hill
And took big spill
And to the ER he went

There once was a Jedi called Judy
Who's friends always thought she was fruity.
Shiraz is her wine,
It tastes mighty fine,
Except when she posts in the nudie. [Hot and Hormonal]

O.K. It seems we have a goer .........

33 Entrants in the competition so far.

Some Good, some Great, some Excellent and a few Special entries. Awards will be given for "quality" and "originality" and I have made a few notes to award these for the Limericks.

Thankyou for the PMs. Nice to hear from some old friends. I usually let the opening round run for a week or two to catch those on holiday, and then the FIRST ROUND will start when, after that time, this thread reaches page 2. ...... So the Smart Alecs now know how to delay the start!

SPECIAL AWARDS TO -

Gort
Smudgie
Dubitante

Each of their limericks appealed to me.

Remember I said that there were some excellent efforts besides these.

So who else is up for some fun and friendly competition, with wit and wisdom thrown in?

If looking for someone who's flustered,
Then look no further than Custard.
He'll take and he'll give
With a brain like one of those meshy things you drain rice in which are always a nightmare to wash up
There's no chance that he'll cut the mustard.
