Limericks! Love them. Traditional rule of Limericks states that in a 5-line Stanza, line number 1, 2 and 5 should rhyme, and likewise line 3 and 4 should rhyme, hence following the format A-A-B-B-A.
Well, here is my humble attempt at composing a few limericks of some of the regular Mizo onliners that I know (mostly from misual.com, lawrkhawm.com and the unforgettable zoram.com and izawl.com days. *sigh*).
I found a lot of amazing people at all these websites, who became more than just online buddies to me. They became my best friends, my mentors, my siblings, and my soulmates, friends who made me smile and laugh and appreciate life. This is a tribute to all of you, in my own special way of light humor, and hoping to continue such a wonderful relationship for a long long time. Cheers.

whose face you'll find extremely funny.
He came to Aizawl looking for a bride,
but his true impulses he could not hide.
Now poor Ateii will soon be a mummy.

working in Bangalore like a horse.
Everytime he has a new girlfriend,

break-dancing away in New Jersey.
He's really good at Bboying,

Oh he praises Australia sooooo much,
criticizing every Mizo custom as such.

There once was a girl called Ammi,
a fashion designer with a slim tummy.
I always used go to her apartment just to chill,
