The LongList is a particularly humorous OverlyLongGag. With this subtrope, someone shows off impressive talent, by spitting out a list where all parts are rhymed either with themselves or each other, preferably using real words. The ListSong is generally related, since songs mostly rhyme, ones containing a list will probably have both.

If it is poorly done, it could be with the world's [[PainfulRhyme painful rhymin]]-est, adjective contrivin-est, least sublimin-est descriptors.

In short, the requirements for this trope are:
#[[LongList A list.]]
#[[RhymesOnADime A rhyming twist.]]
#[[TheCastShowoff A bragging gist.]]
#[[SelfDemonstratingArticle Anything missed?]]

"Doctor") and Master Foster Gloucester, studying law, sir, and [[Creator/GeoffreyChaucer Chaucer]]. "Law's a bore, sir, but Chaucer's coarser!"
