A few years back I wrote this limerick while watching the show. I was lucky to meet Stephen a couple of days ago and he told me he liked it and that I should post it onto the website...I'm not sure if this is where he meant but here goes anyway...

There was a young man from Borringe
Who's name was Honeychurch Corringe
He changed it to Smith
To bolster the myth
That no other word rhymes with orange.

What do you think?

Right place. Nice, but I still think that nothing rhymes with something...

(S)He didn't say it did - (s)he said nothing did...

I know, I was being facetious.

We had to write limericks for the Jolly episode of the J series of QI. Here's one I liked that was never used:

There once was a curly-haired male,
Who was, it seemed, destined to fail,
He could always be sure,
Of a negative score,
Cos the answer was never blue whale.

Here's another QI-inspired one that Spud once wrote:

There was a young writer called Lloyd
With a new dictionary he toyed.
Till he realised if
He made each word a liff,
Paying royalties he might avoid.

My response to that was:

But what he couldn't foresee
Was that almost each devotee
would insert innuendo
And that went crescendo
It certainly liffted th'esprit.

Everything I know is a lie
Like the moon - one of many in the sky
The sun isn't there
There's no white polar bear
And that's why I hate QI
