Late week limerick

The Newton of Info was meek;
permission to copy did seek.

The Crimson refused.
Animations, he used.

And Harvard cracked down on the geek.

With BONUS DOUBLE DACTYL below the fold.

Higgledy Piggledy
William Dembski at-
tempted to twist math so
God he could seek.

Booted from Baylor, the
free-lunching theorist
quickly descended to
flatulent pique.

    There once was a man from ID
    That got challenged by Grad from OK.
    Abbie proved she was better
    Bill was stuck with a sweater
    And jeers from the crowd of onlookers.

    Merry Christmas Bill! You’re truly the gift that keeps on giving!

    Uhhh … doesn’t the 6th line of a double dactyl have to be one single word? Compound at best?

    Maybe “Booted from Baylor, the / anti-Darwinian / quickly descended to / flatulent picque”?

    It is common but not obligatory. If I knew the Latin for freelunching, I’d have used that. Something like “gratuiprandialist.”

    though you could spell “pique” right (use the preview, Luke …)

    ps – wow? Too comments is “too many”? You’ve got some aggressive spammers and/or trolls, there.
