4. Limerick or haiku? Please provide example.

1. Er, I suppose you should be saying that I am the fantasticest person you know, of astonishing and individual beauty, staggeringly good taste, and genius intellect. To everybody, of course. ;-) It's quite weird, I happened to check the internet just as you started posting them and I've been answering the questions backwards.
2. Blowed if I know. I have punctilious grammar, if you should ever desire to increase your knowledge of the field. My punctuation is a bit random though - my sister says I do cruel and unusual things to commas.
3.Backup.
4.
There was a young king from Uruk,
Whom Enkidu thought was a pillock,
They fought a great war
And broke down a door
Then made mighty love on a hillock.

5. I'm about to go to bed.
6. Gosh, I'm not even sure who my favourite antihero is. I quite liked the villain in Fifth Element, though (the one that got blown up, not the huge dark star, I mean). He had swagger and a nice coat.
7. Oh, definitely a dragon.

Limericks are more interesting. I like this one:

$\int_{1}^{\sqrt[3]{3}}t^2\ dt\cdot\cos\left(\frac{3\pi}{9}\right)=\ln \sqrt[3]{e}$

Or you can be meta:

"There was an old lady of Crewe
Whose limericks ended line two."

"There was an old man from Verdun."

I'm still deeply satisfying with my scifaiku:

Oh no,
the time machine
again.

There was a lucky man from Mumbai
Who made his living as a P.I.
Hired by yakuza over curry
Looking to find someone in a hurry
And so Adam West did die.

There once was a girl from Playcentre
Whose home birth was quite an event (a)
When we looked for some meat
For a post-natal treat
"Excuse me, but that's the placenta!"

All in the best possible - er, taste.
