Five-line XKCD ekphrasis
Where are you from? Your limericks refer to quintessentially European places. It's rather pleasing.No luck with the fixed-width challenge - I can't see how to stretch the third and fourth lines out long enough while not screwing up the metre.
I am from England. I think a lot of the early limericks were written using the place name as the original stimulus, but now it's the other way round and I have the devil of a time trying to hunt down places that rhyme with all the XKCD ideas.Funnily enough, I've found some fixed-width limericks at http://forums.xkcd.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=18039. I don't think I'm enough of a smarty pants to make one myself though, and besides this site uses the wrong font for them to work.
