    • Slant and forced rhymes have always been a feature of the limerick form. Furthermore, where locals pronounce a thing one way and the rest of the universe pronounce it another, it might seem more proper to rhyme as locals do, but it’s more sensible to rhyme as everyone else does. E.g. I would rhyme Budapest with “rest” even though in Hungarian it would be properly rhymed with “meshed.”
