Poll 587: Read this limerick. Out loud.

There once was a man named MacMurray
Who cooked lots of fiery curry
He made it too hot
Taste good it did not
So he met fiery doom in a hurry

Now consider the scansion in lines 2 and 5:

Total votes: 2082

I noticed "fiery" has 2 or 3 syllables; it's okay, it fits whatever is needed in a poe: 1200 (57.6%)  
They both sound fine to me, what's the problem?: 562 (27.0%)
Line 5 is wrong because "fiery" has 3 syllables, not 2: 186 (8.9%)
Line 2 is wrong because "fiery" has 2 syllables, not 3: 134 (6.4%)
