flamenco limericks 

Once there was a young singer from Jerez,
She looked a lot like Rosie Perez
She drank too much sherry
And fell off the ferry
But drowned not,
and lived till she could marry

RE: flamenco limericks (in reply to estebanana

There once was a guitarist in Sevilla,
He was real big 'n' hairy - like a goriya.
His compas was real tight
Yet he put dancers in a fright
Coz while he was playing -
It looked like he's about to take a ****e.

There once was a dancer from Ronda
who tried a corte while riding a Honda,
she took a great risk,
nearly messed up her disk,
and then went to eat at the fonda

ok that was stupid.

"Married" doesn't rhyme with ferry or sherry.

A guitarist named Estebanana
Met an actress named Daryl Hannah
He took her to bed
And the next day they wed
Now she's Daryl Hannah Estebanana

Okay, I can do better, but I'm falling asleep – had to slip one in.

RE: flamenco limericks (in reply to estebanana

ok..


There was a cantaora from Nantucket,
Who's head was shaped like a bucket,
She sang the Solea of Frijones,
She went out of compas,
and lost her cojones!
then under breath she said suck it.

Siguiriya alegria buleria,
Cante tango escobilla,

Toma que toma,
Solea de la Roma,

Eso juerga en andalucia.

There was a palmero from Malta,
Who was quite good with the alta,
When asked how, he replies,
I can tell you no lies,
I learned from Churchill at Yalta.

There once was a guitarists named Ricardo,
Who played fast scales with Picado,
He was known as the best,
And he challenged the rest,
Then along came a guy named Gerardo

A guitarist named Paco de God
Played flamenco that sounded too mod
Though his chording was snazzy
It was a little too jazzy
And his falsetas exceedingly odd

No, maybe you need to get out LESS. Sheesh.

There once was a boob named C. Vega
He liked to rain on people's parade like Domingo Ortega
Criticizing all the time
While others are happy, drinking wine
But it's ok coz the poor guy works at a bodega.

A long-ago poet named Chan
Wrote poems that never would scan
When he was asked why
This was his reply
"Because I always try to squeeze as many words into the last line as I possibly can."


Stick that in your anapestic trimeter.

He played compas on a blanca
A bull in a shop, a tatanka
Dripping with reverb,
And longer than Freebird,
Mangled by a German named Liebert!

No, no, no - the structure is all wrong. In a limerick the first, second, and fifth lines have to rhyme with each other, and the third and fourth lines have to rhyme with each other with a different rhyme. Like this –

The "guitarist" Esteban is strange and stranger
He puts real flamenco in danger
But if he gets too snobby
Just call him Kemo Sabe
Because he looks just like the Lone Ranger

Ramon

Please don't be so up tight
Unless you're looking for a fight
You're as mad as a hatter
and it really doesn't matter
To try too hard to be right

While others are fighting 'bout what's real and what's not
The peaceful chums here got onto something hot
Instead of calling something a flamenco illusion
Estebanana came up with an ingenious spanish-irish fusion
I guess all that's left to say is Gimar Yestra - thanks a lot!

To you my hat I doff
With a bow and a little cough
If you don't enjoy out
Please don't destroy
now you can go fakogh

He used a wooden cejilla
He played an alegria
His fingers blazed
He burned down the place
We partied until the next dia

RE: flamenco limericks (in reply to estebanana

there's a flamenco called mcguire
who announced the fakemenco's as liars
with a PC and some words
exposed all the turds,
the threads still rage like a fire....


yep...a bar sounds like a great idea.....
