Loony Limerick Competition #3

It's time for the next instalment of this wacky limerick contest. All you need to do is to think of a last line and leave it in the comments section here. There is a (secret) judge monitoring your entries and waiting to choose the best effort. Extra points will be given for humour and creativity.
  • You can enter as many times as you want to
  • If you have a brilliant afterthought, you can enter again
  • The competition closes 48 hours after this post is published
  • The fifth line must rhyme with "Santa" and "canter"
  • The judge will not be swayed by bribery (I think!).
Go ahead and have fun ....

Fella with a red suit and bushy beard, said his name was Santa,
Stole a gleaming black-eyed stallion, and rode it at a canter
He declared he was late to deliver the presents,
So he gulped down a dinner of brandy and pheasants

The judge of Loony Limerick Competition #2 was Tiffany Norris and she's chosen Bubba's Sis as the winner with this stirling effort ....

She dreamt all her life of an ocean cruise,
Aboard the Queen Mary, with great cabin views,
So when she did marry
Her husband did carry
Her straight to the pier from the pews.

Tiffany also nominated two other efforts for special mentions: Katy Did Not for the line "Mint-flavored Dramamine chews" and Akelamalu for the line "Her over the threshold to tumultuous Yahoos!".

And skipped the gift delivery in favor of a concert featuring Hannah Montana.

Oooh finding this hard as the typical pattern we use for lymerics over here keeps popping into my head and getting in the way.

Fella with a red suit and bushy beard, said his name was Santa,
Stole a gleaming black-eyed stallion, and rode it at a canter
He declared he was late to deliver the presents,
So he gulped down a dinner of brandy and pheasants,
But he soon revealed himself as a fake and a blackguard when he hee heeed instead of ho hoed, and the posh but only slightly pickled hosts became suspicious of his banter.

Sorry. It's late. I should sleep.

But he turned out to be just a small time crook on parole from a jail in Atlanta

and also thanks for the honorable mention! yay!
