Welcome to The Queen's Meme #11.

No one's answers are quite like yours.

And please, stay out of the dungeon.

You don't want to go there.

I have given you seven familiar limericks. Your job is to change them by filling in the blanks. Here's an example of a limerick.

There was an Old Man in a tree,

I am not going down into the dungeon ever again! I do not want to run into the man wih the chest hair. YUK!

I loved the bonnet answer and the picture of the hat. I think you did a marvelous job with a meme you didn't particularly find appealing. But it was grand!!

Thank you for playing!


Thank you, Queen Mimi. I didst try! Are not Picard's most glorious?
