Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

There was a yound lady from Kew
Who all help usually eschew.
This sudoku forum
By luck came upon
And begged to be given a cue.

:?:Can you answer this riddle?

There was a young lady from Kew
A light bulb she went on to screw
How many, she asked
To carry this task
Out in the weird world of sudoku?

As an example, you need 3,141516 numerical analysis mathematicians (after 6 iterations).

Competition is it?

Right.

There was a young lady from Kew
Who heard a very large moo
She turned right around
And guess what she found?
Her man having stuck at sudoku!


There was a young lady from Kew
Who bit off more than she could chew
She swallowed her pride
In order to decide
Was it worth it to do sudoku?


There was a young lady from Kew
Who heard a very faint mew
She ascertained that
It had come from her cat
Who could very well help with soduku


There was a young lady from Kew
Who decided that she very well knew :
That sudoku was addictive,
She wasn't assertive
So she may as well join in too.

Time for prizes! I think the main thing is flow - each of these entries was great but some of them don’t flow really smoothly - this kind of poetry has to scan, it’s got to flow off the tongue like … something really smoothly!

GOLD STARS for passing the Flow Test
- MCC
- RW
- Ruud

MCC gets the OVERALL GRAND PRIZE- for content that makes you think in a twisted kind of way. (Judge's bias.:D )

PATs on the back

Tarek gets an O–CE-NON (which is self-explanatory:D )

Luna gets a QTip – Quickest To Improve Person – for writing ‘obviously not the winning entry’ to 'this will be the winning entry' in one move.
She also gets the QOOTIE - Quantum Optime Omnis Totus Itero Enthusiasticus - pronounced Cutie not Cootie – for commendable output.

RW wins the PFF! = Pretty Funny Finnish! for most creative use of the English language on the final word. S/he also qualifies for a QTip

Ruud's Alternative Entry wins an R.AE (pending) and also a SPLOSH (Spelling Lacks Overall Standard Hexpected)

AM – gets a LOLLIP3P – LOL Look I Posted 3 Poems

underquark – gets LOST In Translation - and also an AT:D – Ascendo Tuum:D - a reminder that you need to place a smiley face after derogatory remarks to remove the sting.

underquark, we posted some Haiku way way back - here's mine

Not love affairs:
naked pairs and XY wings
and yet puzzling

There was a lady from Kew
Who had such a great IQ
She made fun
On this forum
Of a poster new at sudoku

There was a lady from Kew
Who was new to sudoku
But another player
Made rather fun of her
So she went and cried Boohoohoo

There was a lady from Kew
Who excelled at sudoku
Met a stranger
Felt a player
And sent her down to Timbuktu

There was a lady from Kew
Who wanted to play sudoku
I’ll try some
On my lonesome
All the way down in Timbuktu

AM – I had no intention to make fun of you, I hope that that is not what you inferred.

Head swelling with pride:D

For an encore:-

There was a young lady from Kew
Was walking with a young lad she knew
Sunny disposition had he
Doing handstands under a tree
'Kumquats'! He cried or was it 'Gnu'?

Thanx, I've always thought of "O" as a symbol of infinity, I will target the LOLLIP3P next time:D

Well, I'm so glad that AT doesn't stand for "A Tergo". Condemnant quod non intelligunt, buttface:D (take this cum grano salis, please).

The next round, we move to Michigan:

A young lad in Kalamazoo
Was fond of Blink 182
A punksong as such
Didn't help him that much
In solving a hard sudoku


[methinks this will be the next winner]

Ruud.
