12 Dead Bunnies


In response to the "dead bunnies" prompt per this month's Absolute Write blog chain, here are a series of limericks about Playboy bunnies.  I admit my rhythm and rhyme are not the best, but I was going for the fun factor.  Enjoy!
  

Twelve Dead Bunnies

Jan began a Twitter war,
gave Internet geeks what for.
So all of the nerds
unleashed Angry Birds
‘til that chick could tweet no more.

Spring bikini model noobs
sparred over who had real boobs.
Strings came untied,
they fought ‘til they died—
ten thousand views on YouTube.

April, May and June
left the spa at half past noon.
The three were last seen
reenacting scenes
with Charlie Sheen from Platoon.

Two bunnies July and Au
on the playground with Jigsaw.
They teeter-tottered
and were then slaughtered.
Don’t let your kids go see Saw.

Three blondes formed an alliance
to share their first appliance,
plugged in their rocket
to a bad socket—
official death by science.

The last one started to cry
when she learned tomorrow nigh
she’d be on a show,
the name, don’t you know
is 1,000 Ways to Die!


Please enjoy these other blog posts about dead bunnies!

  2. Limericks! Love it. My fave is the first one, especially now that you can actually throw Angry Birds plushes, dog toys, and fruit snacks.

  3. Love it!

    How very clever. :D

    By far, the best verse EVER:

    "Spring bikini model noobs
    sparred over who had real boobs.
    Strings came untied,
    they fought ‘til they died—
    ten thousand views on YouTube."
