County Limerick, in Ireland, draws no small bit of fame due to the consensus that a poetic form of jesting, the limerick, derives from there. Widely heralded as an example of bawdy rhymes, in which the first, second, and fifth line rhyme with one another, as well as the third and fourth, they are often dismissed as mere doggerel. But those who do so risk writing off a form that has its devotees, moreso in praise of the laughter evoked, rather than their sober intent and lofty musings.
Here then, in honor of that tradition, are some that were crafted recently to bring notice upon realcent.org forum members, who, in all likelihood, would have preferred to remain outside this particular circle of limelight. With the intent of providing a laugh for those who know them best, and recording for posterity these five-line jokes, then let us now expose to pillory some of these fine folks. If perusing these mockeries stimulates mirth, why not visit realcent.org and lurk or join for more fun yet?
Doc Chris Rodebaugh
There once was a Doc named Rodebaugh
Who prized Morgans more than cole slaw
But the long arm of the law
Reached forth with its claw
When Chris peddled a counterfeit flaw
There once was a Doc named Rodebaugh
Who preferred slabbed St. Gauden's over raw
But then he learned he'd been reamed
By a fake gold-colored coin scheme
Now third party grading sticks in his craw
There once was a Doc named Rodebaugh
Who wielded his craft with dental saw
They thought they were getting a filling
As their gold fillings he was stealing
Which left quite a hole in each patient's jaw
Once Doc found his woman with a Jamaican
In six feet of water covering Caribbean sand
It's a good thing that clown
Was already half-drowned
Or Rodie might have Aruba'd that man
There once was an old geezer named Ray
Who was practically giving his silver away
It was really feedback he was after
Which accounts for all the laughter
As members wondered what's on sale today?
Txbullion's real name is Jack
And it's pennies that he loves to stack
In fact he's got so much copper
He may be richer than Cyndi Lauper
Is it any surprize he's lost track?
Corsair's a student some say
Who in Calculus just got an A
An accomplishment to be proud of
Till you learn extra credit was allowed
I hope he didn't do that for the grade?
Market Harmony is a fellow named Mike
Who enjoys it when precious metals spike
Women melt in his arms, too
Or at least their gold charms do
As he re-molds them into something he likes
Adam Rice is a fairly nice guy
I'm surprized you would have to ask why
With a name like the kidman
Even Jamaicans urge "Bid, Mon!"
So most auctions he loses, but he tries
Eric (Thogey) has a business doing lawns
But it's not always foreign silver he pawns
Once he went in for some money
With a red package that was runny
The broker yelled "that's a toe! Sew it back on!"
68camaro is a great guy named Rich
Rates the markets, better than Fitch
On the rise of metals I'm told
He favors silver over gold
If he's wrong, well "ain't life a bitch?"
Sheikh yer Bu Tay repairs roofs in the rain
Covering holes so that they will drain
It's actually quite frightening
He works faster than lightning
But when he doesn't, "Oh Lord, the pain!"
Jonflyfish loves to explain
With PM's up or down how he gains
Silver and gold will now either
Hold, advance, or retreat here
Ain't it nice to have them kinda brains?
Scott was a consistent silver buyer
And each time it would seem to rise higher
Till the day that it dove as he wept
Taking his treasure trove to new depths
Proving dollar cost averaging is a lie here
On realcent there's a guy with a handle of Z00
Often reader's would question his comments with "Who?"
"too much time on their hands," he chided the Boards
But with Markets closed we can't add to our hoards
So let's ease up, folks, remember... he's a Noob
A Gentleman resides here named Country
Who Excels at accounting your hunts, free
For spare time he is lacking
After all of that tracking
"But for me," he explains "it is fun, see?"

As thieves would say "it's a steal!"
There's a guy with a name of Rexmerdinus
Seems it rhymes, almost, with sex murderuh's
Whom the cattle on the trail
With a question will assail
"Is that Tex," moo moo, "a herdin' us?"
There's another fella named Rastatodd
Who, if he fished, could be called Castarod
But owning an Italian Deli would be best
As patrons, rubbing bellies, could then jest
"This is delicious, who made this pasta, God?"
Aaron is uthminsta in disguise
Heck, you want to rhyme that, you try
During auctions, instead of bidding
He asks questions, I'm not kidding
Instead of bid increments he'll post "Why?"
Natsb88 is the one with the store
That sells copper bars, silver and more
An engineering student in school
He now follows the Golden Rule's
That should ensure business success, fer shore
There once was a man named Peter
Took a taxi to his girlfriend's to meet her
In her bedroom Slickeast
Found her infected, with yeast

Mostly sorting Copper from Zinc,

Constantly increasing his hoard
Despite what he can afford

The Fed's printing is nothing but treason
"By the time we hyperinflate
Fiat currency will deflate"
So he's buying silver now with good reason
Trent is a man out standing in his field
Producing amazing crop yields
He's called Tractorman
It's a bigger factor than
The horse-driven plows Amish wield

From frequent dealings I am positive of this
But it seems there's a crisis
He can't pay for his license
Though most Weekend Sale Silver he claims as his

Searching for silver from New York to Des Moines
To boxes of dimes he's addicted
Seems he's OCD afflicted
Precious Metals Anonymous he'll soon need to join.

From Florida's sunny shores pretty

Hope he's not wasted on too many gin fizz

Earns himself a gold star
As long I don't have to pay for that award, if any

Who swaps MJ to support his crack habit
His parents failed, you see
To raise him religiously

And Ron, it seems is quite the charmer
Told the wife, "That copper ain't wert much
Just a few thousand boxes or such"
Because he didn't want to alarm her
There's a salvage man here, Dumpster Diver
Who's as ingenious at scrounging as McGyver

A fan, can you believe, of the Lakers?
When LA slid into the ocean
Due to seismic commotion
They then renamed the team The Quakers

He's got a cartoon avatar, Woody Woodpecker
You'd imagine, too, that there'd be a Shrek here

To me sounds just like Hannibal Lecter

To unimaginable heights given time
But if you think it's too late

Guess they wanted them all dead, not alive
