Hi Folks,
         the challenge is to produce a topical limerick which has a rhyme for fractal in it smiley

When the same question was posed on the fractint mailing list a few years back I seem to recall the best began:

"my cat it has paws polydactyl" 

The rest has fled my memory smiley   anyone feeling creative?

interesting challenge, though i fear it may be nigh impossible :S

the most homophonic word i can think of is hacksaw (a fractal would indeed make the best hacksaw), and poetically incorporating this crude approximation in a non-tacky way is pretty difficult... in the end, as with german, some languages (in this case, technical english) just aren't suited to eloquent verse wink

ps, welcome to the forums!

An engineer working for Actel,
Loved to lay out the chips as a fractal,
Working late back one night
He was asked by his wife,
"Just how long are you going to stay back 'till?"

Poetry's just like some fractals
With rhyming and meter and dactyls
Arranged in a tree,
Made of syntax you see
It makes up an IFS fractal

Tyrannosaurus Rex and Pterodactyls,
flowers and stems, stamens, petals.
All from repeating DNA,
it doesn't matter what you say.
All of life is made of fractals.

The meaning and purpose of life is to give life purpose and meaning.
