"Whoa, whoa...It aint gonna be that way,"
Ennis said to Jack's dismay.
He broke Jack's heart.
That wasn't so smart!
Jack had hoped Ennis would say: "I'm gay!"

Here I am!! Here I am!! In celebration of this monumentous achievement I would like to say a few words...

*Ascends podium*

*Coughs* *Clears throat*

Ahem... friends and fellow Brokies, I had no idea when starting this thread what a behemoth I'd created.

*Pauses for significance of achievement to spread amongst reverent audience*

Having achieved the dizzy heights of 26 posts on the IMdB version I thought that 50 would be a good haul. Little did I realise the Bettermost community's capacity for fun and filth!

*Chuckles*

My thanks must go to the other posters who have done much more than I to keep this thread going... Pipedream... Snowflakes... DavidinHartford... Ray... Fran-E... Memento... Mikaela... thePirateBride... Becky... Daniel... all other contributors... but a special mention must go to Lucise! Honey, I feel like this is your thread.

*Nods and applaudes Lucise, who nods back and wipes a tear from her eye*

Lucise's sterling work in compiling our finished limericks, and her contributions - too numerous to mention - have kept my dream alive...

*Breaks down and weeps* *Beckons for a handkerchief and blows nose loudly*

*Sniff* Thankyou all...

*Leaves podium to thunderous applause*

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

When Eniss had moved in the tent
His hand to Jack's groin it did went
Jack grabbed him with glee
Said, get on your knee
I sure didnt know you were bent.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

There were two boys from Wyoming
Who tended the sheep that were roaming
Then on the cold nights
Their love reached new heights
And the sheep couldnt sleep for the moaning..
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Jack sure fancied Jimbo the Clown,
