All right, I can't be outdone here.

The man with the death-bunny head
Made Donnie just wish he were dead.
Don set houses ablaze,
Then went back 30 days,
And snuffed himself right in his bed.

The hero is quirky and cute;
there's a guy in a real scary suit.
But at the end of the day,
as the Canadians say,
"I don't know what this film is about."

alright, when the new Cementhorizon online magazine starts (soon I promise) we'll have a limerick movie review column

"A film about rabbits?" I scoffed,
"Like 'Harvey' turned into a Goth?"
Then it gave me a scaring
Now why am I wearing
This stupid man suit? Take it off.

nope, you guys still have me beat.

Donnie cried, "I'm going insane!
This life is too sad to sustain!
How can I set right
The wrongs done tonight?"
The answer came from a higher plane.

Donnie's hijiinks caused a commotion,
But I'm questioning your devotion.
Rose, the kids have a chance,
They could wow everyone with their dance.
I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion!

hahaha! jacob, that slayed me.

The lesson I learned from this flick
Donnie spoke before getting his chick.
The speculations of pervs
On the sex lives of Smurves:
What's the point in living if you don't have a dick?

If there's one thing I truly detest,
It's a poem improperly stressed.
You can cheat on the rhyme,
(People do all the time),
But remember to use anapest!

I should have learned my lesson yesterday when Jacob and I actually got in a fight over my proofreading of his limerick (culminating in me declaring it metrically hopeless and demanding that he remove all traces of my involvement before posting it)... but clearly not.

The director thought it would be nice
To foreshadow Donnie's sacrifice
And that's why we see
On the theater marquee
Scorcese's "Temptation of Christ."

With the help of a book by Steve Hawking,
Noah Wyle explains timewalking
But that made me leery
Since Steve's wormhole theory
Came around ten years later, how shocking.

Claiming I got it would make me a liar;
Good Cliff's notes this film does require.
But what trips me up most
Is I mistakenly post
All my fan mail to Tobey Maguire.

(Sorry for the late entry. I hope the scholarship hasn't been given away yet.)
