    There once was a gangster named Terrence
    Who had very little experience
    Pulled the trigger to shoot
    Blew off his own foot
    Demonstrating Police Quest common sense

      Revision (if allowed):

      There once was a gangster named Terrence
      Who had not so much common sense
      Pulled the trigger to shoot
      Blew off his own foot
      T'was the Police Quest experience

    There once was a gangster named Andy,
    With guns he was rather quite handy,
    But try as he might,
    in a fist fight,
    Turns out he was a just big pansy.

    Unrelated - Could we have sent the gangster to Nantucket? :P

    There once was a gangster named Bob,
    he was thrilled by his new mafia job,
    but as his first day did start,
    he let slip a toxic fart,
    now he's no longer welcome by the mob!

    There once was a gangster called Tony,
    with a solid girth, he was a typical crony.
    Shot in the head,
    through tears his Mum shed:
    "All he ever wanted was a miniature Pony"

    There once was a gangster named Neville
    With the ladies he was quite the devil
    But only on dating games
    He'd get all the great dames
    In real life he couldn't beat the first level

    There once was a gangster named Seamus
    Who thought David was getting a little to famous
    Little did the public know
    He had it in for that so and so
    So he made him resign what a ignoramus

      Here is the visual proof of my conspiracy

    There once was a gangster named "Sue",
    who knew just what to do.
    If his name got a laugh,
    the guy's [crotch] chopped in half.
    "The girl here, was me, now it's you!"

    There once was a gangster named Wander,
    Though others called him Wanda.
    Sixteen colossi did he kill
    with oh so much skill
    But why no giant panda?

    There once was a gangster named Betty
    Whose arm pits would get very sweaty
    The smell got so strong
    The mob couldnt bear the pong
    So they buried her under a jetty

    There once was a gangster named tony
    whom loved more than just cannelloni
    for when the Don's not around
    he plays, with the curtains down
    his headless "My Little Pony"

    There once was a gangster named Ringo,
    He ate Big Mobs of burgers every Smoko.
    His waist got fatter and fatter...
    Ringo's now an Armchair-Gangster,
    As he just plays GTA, Mafia and Saints Row!

    Well done Andy Pants, had a great laugh with your won, well deserved. I was so tempted to make Ringo hail from 'Nantucket' in this one! But that would be a cheap one, ha!

    There once was a gangster named Salvatore
    His day job, though fun, was quite gory
    Armed with his Tommy, shooting mobsters left and right
    He quickly worked up a mighty appetite
    Which was satisfied with his mother’s chicken cacciatore

    There once was a gangster called Reg

    Who Went with a Girl in a Hedge

    Along came his wife

    With a big Carving Knife

    And cut off his meat and two veg

    There once was a gangster called *insert name*
    He was tough, a *insert level of fame*
    But I shot him dead
    Bam! Right through the head
    Achievement Unlocked - *insert much acclaim*

    I couldn't think of a more generic gangster gaming limerick, alas.

    There once was a gangster named Shirley,
    and although his name was quite girly,
    he would make tough demands,
    kill guys with his hands,
    and had a girlfriend who looked like Liz Hurley.

    There once was a gangster named Bugsy,
    Who threw lame cream pies that were sludgy,
    He hijacked the Splurge,
    And now has the urge,
    To shoot off his load at Don Fugsly.

    There once was a gangster named Harry
    That was indeed quite contrary
    Given his pardon
    To grow his garden
    For bodies to hide and bury

    There once was a gangster named Tony

    What?, you don't believe me? Who the F#@K do you think you are. I should come over there and rip your F#@king heart out and wear your skin as a blanket.

    Do you beleive this guy?

    (This is the toned down version of course)

      'Shady.. you effing rock! haha

      that was brilliant! :D

        Yeah, this totally should win today, sorry loops, FS just stole the show. :)

          i know.. and i thought my one was pretty good until i saw this :(

            Thanks Gents. I was thinking, what would a Mafia guy do when writing a limerick... and well, that about sums it up. Not sure if i'd be eligible for the win as technically it is NOT a limerick, and we have seen what happens when people go over the word limit etc in other comps.

            I will leave it up to the hand of 'David'.

            But yeah, was too funny not to do it!

    There once was a gangster named Fat Tony,
    Who was incredibly bony,
    He went on a heist,
    and cried "Jesus Christ"
    when he realized he had to carry a Sony.

    There once was a gangster named Fluffy,
    Who woke up with his eyes all puffy,
    He'd been on the turps,
    And torched some flamboyant perps,
    Which made the pink mafia all huffy.

    There once was a gangster named Shirly
    The others found him quite girly
    But he real was tough
    And he'd had enough
    So he shoot the boys in their pearlys.

    There once was a gangster named Skeet,
    who's Street Gang could not be beat,
    'till Alex and Ryan found him,
    and they gave him a good poundin',
    until he barfed coins all over the street.

    There once was a gangster named Gertrude
    Who seemed to always get screwed
    He'd hire a girl for the night
    But once his manhood was in sight
    He'd be locked outside in the nude.

    There once was a girl named Bayonetta,
    A gangster wronged and on a vendetta,
    To win the comp of the century
    She rehashed an old entry
    By gosh Kotaku just LET HER !!

    There once was a gangster named Slink
    Whose clothing attire was never in sync
    Washed his whites with his reds
    From where he had bled
    And then rock up to work wearing pink
