Contemporary Vogon Limericks

Written in


Grunth, my porkbellied lizard

Wargled his ample gizzard

Fringled by loamy detritus

Crunchy bones arthritus (?)

gyrating tongue licked wizard

– Composed by The Crapulent Crustacean Chrishagogus, the Awesome Noisome Gruntbuggly of Poeticon IV

That poetic outpouring of extreme indigestion is a result of me wondering why Vogon Poetry was always composed in the boring 18th century Romantic style. So my alter ego (Chrishashogus) took a trip on a sailing ship and when he reached Jamaica, he (it) made a stop. No wait. That’s circa 1950s Belafonte. He ran into this gentleman instead.


Edward Lear (1812-1888), also known as Lord Limerickdas, was such a poet extraordinnaire that I will simply let Wikipedia do justice to his legacy. He introduced the Noisome Vogon Gruntbuggly to the supreme artform of the Limerick.

A poetic Vogon from intergalactic space

came down to earth at faster-than-light pace

He said “oh gribbly dear!”

“Teach me limericks Mr Lear”

“I will add to Vogon Poetry its missing grace”

Mr Adams. We all miss you. Badly. So long, and thanks for all the Vogon Poetry.

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up
    of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options
    for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I think that everything published was very reasonable.
    However, consider this, what if you wrote a catchier post title?

    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you
    added a headline to maybe get a person’s attention? I mean Contemporary Vogon Limericks | Doing Jalsa & Showing Jilpa
    is kinda vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s
    front page and note how they write post headlines to grab viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve got to
    say. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
