    Day and night Hiawatha tokes the weed
    Many warning signs he does not heed
    The longbowmen attack
    While Mounted Warriors have become high from contact
    And the Iroquios are dispatched with speed

    A new poster named Jim the Hick,
    Is quite good with the limerick,
    But his signature size
    Is a sore to my eyes,
    Please learn the vBcode trick!

    (which is: you write before you signature, then in those same kind of brackets after your signature you write /size. I can't believe you were able to post such a long signature. It is a great quote but it dwarfs your limericks!)

    Jim's last post - it was sadder than "Tom Joad"
    Straight to hell, Hiawatha was taking the long road
    While his enemies attacked
    And his capitol was sacked
    He sat in his tent doing bong loads

    The Iroquois loss is bemoaned,
    But let not the moral be postponed
    There'd be the proof we could cite
    That the AI is for shyte,
    If we learned that ol' Jim was also stoned!

    A theory on why the AI plays like a slug
    Don't blame it on glitches or bugs
    Jim the Hick spelled it out
    There can be little doubt
    That the AI didn't Just Say No To Drugs

    A challenge cgannon proposed
    'twas a map where the player was hosed
    I tried it last night
    had an ungodly fright
    and have slunk off to bandage my nose.

    Play the World has arrived - I'm ecstatic
    'cause I'm clearly a known Civfanatic
    As I play I'm assessing
    This is very depressing
    Multiplayer is way too erratic


    Joe, in his spare time relaxes
    With the latest release from Firaxis
    Wrote a note to Sid Meyer
    "Bugs have made me retire
    I'd rather spend time paying taxes."

    I vow to Firaxis 'I'll never expand'
    For first my vast armies I would rather disband
    Coughing up 30 bills
    For 8 new civs and paltry thrills
    Is a scenario where I'd rather be damned!

    I've heard from so many that Play-the-World's busted,
    with multitudinous bugs we all are disgusted;
    But there've been patches before,
    and there should be some more,
    So pray that Sid Meier will make it robust, eh?

    EDIT: 999 posts :D

    There once was a maiden named Liz
    Who blew all her bucks at the Ritz
    she asked for a loan
    I replied with a groan
    Pike off! Mind your own biz!

    There once was a Turkish emmisary
    who was considered quite hairy
    he hooked up with Liz
    and her sumptous friz
    and agreed that Genghis was scary

    There once were a folk called the Mongols
    Who in 2 were fun, bundles
    but in Civ3
    I'd rather be
    chattin' with Abe while he grumbles

    There once was a purple star'ed tank
    who advanced quite far in rank
    but once it was sent in
    against sev'ral spearmen
    it, quite improbably, sank

    Ghandi looks like a gremlin
    and Joan natters 'bout Heaven
    but with his demands
    and quick iron hand
    it's Shaka I want to send packin'

    Wow I see improvement you can measure,
    With each Muriel Wasser limerick treasure,
    (It's kind of confusin'
    The same avatar you're usin'
    As Sparrowhawk, who could change at his leisure)

    -seriously sparrowhawk, over a thousand posts, its time to get personal!

    quoth sultan bargash:
    Good Sultan, surely you jest
    when you say that we give it a rest
    yet I sometimes ask why
    limericks I try
    when yours, quite simply, are the best!

    There once was a maiden from France
    who did, surely, entrance
    she was so cute
    that I did almost puke
    when she suddenly asked me to dance!

    The american people got thinkin'
    And said "Out! With King Abe Lincoln!
    for industrial has come
    and we live by the gun
    So welcome, new leader, COMRADE Lincoln!

    There once was a leader named Lincoln
    who had'nt yet discovered drinkin'
    but once while he snoozed
    Americans traded for booze
    And thereafter, weren't known for thier thinkin!
