I've heard of Alex's poem before, I really like the poems that you and your sister made, Strat.
I don't have anything to compete with that, but I remember this from when I was a kid (I don't remember what it's called or who wrote it, but here it is anyway):

Spoiler!

The one I've heard of was much shorter than this (from line 2 to line 13), but still really funny!
That, and colorless green ideas sleep furiously.

I added to the second one, it was only two couplets before. But as I read it I saw room for more.

Okay so the only punch line was the first line... I just... er... got carried away.

I'd just like to open this post by asking: Can we please, please, PLEASE, for the love of GOD, get rid of those icons set on the side of the messages by default? The bloody things actually lagged me so much I had to cut this from typing it in Notepad and paste it into this window. It's bloody painful.

Here are a few monstrously bad poems I wrote during my freshman and sophomore years of college, which I happened to find in an old Homesite folder. I will not deign to even give their titles.

Blank-verse-inspired-by-a-bus-stop-that-I-thought-was-good-just-because-it-got-applause-at-a-public-reading:

Spoiler!


Equally-monstrous-holocaust-inspired-blank-verse-that-also-was-read-publicly

Spoiler!


Damnable-Poe-parodying-monstrosity-that-I-thought-was-clever-when-I-wrote-it

Spoiler!



This last is the only one of this bunch that I still consider any good, though I don't think it showcases my true penchant for composition. I used to hate it, having written it while not knowing its inspiration, then five years after I wrote it, I met a girl named Rose, who died of cancer last September, and it turns out that according to her brother she had adored the poem. She was 19 years old.

Spoiler!

Also, I'm not so sure this can be considered "funny," but it is captioned. I made a set of "Austencats" out of old pictures of my cats. Only fans of the greatest romantic satire author of all time, Jane Austen (mostly Pride & Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility), will actually understand these.

Duchess as Darcy
Duchess as Kitty
Duchess and Yoyo as Mrs. and Mr. Bennett
Duchess as Elizabeth
Duchess as Elizabeth
Yoyo as Mr. Bennett
Yoyo as Wickham
Yoyo as Lady Catherine
Yoyo and Duchess as Darcy and Elizabeth
Hobo as Willoughby

And just for fun, one Austendog (R.I.P. Brandy, 7/4/1993-12/21/2008)

Brandy as Lydia

*edited cause of late night irritation at server crash*

I praised your skill in artful ways, but death struck the server as our posts met ways.
Apolaris I fear my new poem and post, met demise crossing arms against your host.

So here I am sitting, about to retry, my hand at remembering oh dear oh my.
Pain I will feel, but I must do it again, here I go let me sit and once more zen.

.... Uuhhhh Strat I dunno if you know this... but that's not Arc.. that's Apolaris. (first thread of the night for me)

Okay for the first time in... a long time actually!... I've sorta written a piece...
Well okay, since I like to talk I'll explain or all of you will be lost.

I dunno how many of you do so but Alex and I play Dungeons and Dragons with my parents and their friends (a veritable nest of geeks). My sorceror (Davidicus *sniff*) died. T-T Killed by a bear. My new character is Irvine Meadowfold, who likes to be called "Fletch" like the fletching on an arrow (since he's an all-out archer), anywho, his nickname on a whole is "Fletch, The Flaming Gay Archer!" I do the total fop of the era voice rather well! Call me and ask me to do it for you sometime, I get a kick out of it everytime. And I obviously mean no offense to any and all of you here who may be homosexual... but anyway, to make things in the campaign a little more 3d than just rolling dice, I have given him some backstory.. when finished.. I realized that it wasn't half bad a backstory, as well as integrates well with backup character #2 Solstace (Fletch was #1, after davidicus died!)... but well what do you guys think?

Spoiler!

Really! I was the DM for First Edition AD&D from about 1995 through 2006. We had 18 people at our peak, including some of the most popular kids at two of the local high schools, and six Eagle Scouts including me and my brother Mike, who is now in army training in Georgia. We also traveled to the Tuxedo Re. Faire together in 2003.

Unfortunately, when I left for college in 2002, my youngest brother chose to move all 100 or so of my first edition books that I had gotten free, including the incredibly rare D&D (not AD&D) Master's boxed set, into the unfinished basement, and they molded over. I had to throw them all out.

Hahahahah!! I like that. I'm gonna have to use that one on Mike or Diontae should they get glum on me.

>.> <.< did anyone like it? I wrotes that m'self T-T.

Bah well it was rather lame anyway...

Yeah Ap, we kinda stick to 3rd Ed D&D. My mom, dad, me, alex, and friends: Pat, Chuck, and (non-related) Uncle Stewart! Most, if not all, my mom+dad's friends play D&D, but we find that any more than 6 players, things begin to REALLY SLOW DOWN!! So we stick to a cap of around 6 players, give or take one.

I found that with an 18-person group, about 10-12 seemed to be the median for how many showed up to a given meeting. Typically I would use 3 techniques to keep things moving.

1. Split parties: I would have multiple paths and even adventures for the parties to use, and they would split themselves up for the sake of getting through them.

2. Minigames: I created a "warfare" card game for them to play while they weren't up.

3. Mass combat situations: Used the "war machine" rules from first edition D&D (not AD&D). Groups of characters, typically by class, would lead different groups of armies and strategize together.

For the end battles, things at times got chaotic, but after a few campaigns, people put together generic "if-then" strategies that got things moving smoothly and each player took about 15-30 seconds per turn, although with lacking variety they did actually lose to more than one intelligent main villain.
