    BLACKTHORN SIGNS PET MARRIAGE BILL
    Citing opportunities bestowed by redefining traditions, Lord King Blackthorn legalized marriage between players and their pets yesterday in a ceremony attended by his beloved swampy, "Lapdancer from Hell."
    "Lord knows it's about time," the Lord said.

    WHY THAT NAME?
    - by RueTor
    Bo: "Bo was picked out by my bother when we were in college playing uo in the late 90s. He had some Chinese classes and he picked Bo for two reasons. Bo is a Chinese title translated as "Count" or "The Count." It also is a nearly extinct minority population in Southern China famous for hanging coffins of the dead. Since I came to siege about 8 years ago I assumed the character and decided to make the character "The Count" (aka red). I decided to put my own twist on it, by only talking in the third person. It worked out well since Bo Jackson was famous for saying Bo knows."
    Hugibear: "Hugibear was created at the same time in the late 90s. I have always been a huge fan of old cars and there is none finer than a 1976 Limited edition Ford Gran Torino. I thought Starsky & Hutch were boring names and i really didnt want to be a cop in game. So I thought of the most interesting character on that show, Huggy Bear who was a pimp that was always willing to help. I shortened the name to Hugibear, i dont know why, maybe it is because I am a horrible speller. who knows?"

    Knew a seafaring lass named Rouxx
    She found herself quite a nice crew
    But they thought her a fool
    Her acts misconstrued
    Alas how I miss that sweet Rouxx

    Third Place Limerick
    On Siege, mean nasty pirates inhabit Arrr
    They sail the seas near and far
    From sea farers they extract booty
    Which is pilfered by Liandra the cutie
    Making the pirates shout -Arrr!

    Tang
    Fourth Place Limerick
    There was a young pirate named Parium,
    Who escaped from the Siege Sanitarium,
    When confronted with capture,
    He exclamed in rapture,
    "Cogito Ergo Pirateum!"

    Thank you Arrr for the great Limerick Event. I had fun writing and rhyming. The participation was great and the competition stiff. The prizes were terrific especially for a newcomer to Siege Perilous and exactly the items I needed!
