Thread: Halibut Peoms?

  1. #1

    Default Halibut Peoms?

    Anybody have any examples of funny halibut poems?

    Talking ???

    Your user name combined with your quest for poems is confusing and a little bit scary to me. It is holloween week though.

    As for the poem.....well some folks I work with have gotten bored and are holdin some TMNT magnets for ransom. One of the demands is a halibut poem. I am very busy with work and running into a brain block and was looking for ideas.

    There once was a man from Nantucket
    Who caught a fish that fought like a bucket
    He said with a grin
    As he pulled the fish in
    “It’s a good think I like to eat halibucket.”

    Yeah, the last word is a stretch and repeating the rhyme, but there's only so many things that rhyme with "bucket," and one such coupling I can't use on this forum.

    Well, this is what I came up with:

    I like big butts and I cannot lie,
    They are easy to catch, they are not shy.
    First time I went out, I didn't read the regs,
    I had seven dead butts in between my legs.
    Lucky for me, no troopers I saw,
    I fried my fish and served them with slaw.
    I had so much fun; I can't wait till its summer again.
    Maybe next year I'll catch a butt bigger than a 15lb hen.

    A fat fisherman from McClure
    Used a dynamite stick for a lure
    His boat was a mess…
    Found his ass six miles West
    And the halibut fed good for sure

    Default Shakespeare anyone?

    O halibut, halibut, wherefore art thou Halibut?
    You deny my jig and refuse my bait;
    But if thou wilt bite and be mine flatfish,
    You’ll swim free once again…
    In melted butter on my dish.

    Things slow down a bit for us during the winter. Glad to say I met all three of the demands and got them back Fri. Also had to put a pic of David Hasselhoff as my computer background and put as many marshmallows in my mouth while saying I'm a chubby bunny. Our work is a silly place.

    This has to rank right up there as one of the strangest threads I've ever seen.

    Pretty darn entertaining, though.

    If it was March and cabin fever season, that'd be different, but you're about 4 months early for that.

    You all are familiar with playing "air guitar", right? Well, by March, I'm walking around my workplace playing "air jigging rod," imagining myself on the salt somewhere, seeing that little jig bouncing off the rocky bottom, moving my hands in the latest jigging method shared by AKCapt, feeling that strike, and --SETTING THE HOOK!, while my co-workers look on as if I'd gone bonkers. The thing is, as a frequent visitor to this forum, I know I'm not alone. Now that's either a very comforting thought, or one that calls into question our collective sanity. )

    Thumbs up Halibutto With an Edgar Allen Twist

    Here it is.

    Cruising At Dawn
    Sporting a Yawn
    A Gallant Fisherman
    Had Journeyed Long
    Jigging His Rod
    In Search of Halibutto

    But He Grew Old
    This Fisherman so Bold
    As He Found No Grounds
    That Looked Like Halibutto

    And, As His Arm Strength Failed
    From Jigging His Five Pound Rig
    He Met A Seagull Shadow
    Shadow said he
    Where can it be
    This Land Of Halibutto

    The Seagull Shadow Replied
    Out of the Harbor
    Out of the Bay
    Full Throttle All Of The Way
    If You Seek The Grounds of Halibutto
