Where Are The Limericks?

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

No limericks posted in ages
To fill up this website’s fab pages.
Get active, don’t linger,
Just pull out your finger –
But don’t expect payment in wages.

Come on folks, don’t leave it all to Paul !!


Sour Grapes Limerick

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

(A light-hearted response to the results of a weekly poetry competition)

I yelled and I stamped and I sobbed,
For my poem with votes wasn’t mobbed.
“Something’s fishy,” I hissed,
Feeling thoroughly pissed.
“Where’s the recount? It’s clear I’ve been robbed!”

Thanks  Paul

Scottish Suicide

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

A Scotsman who lived near the Clyde
Fell into a cesspool and died
His less-than-smart brother
Fell into another
Ther verdict in both–sewer-cide.

Thanks to Bruce Gillies for this submission

The Man Of Blackheath

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

There was an old man of Blackheath
Who sat on his set of false teeth
Said he, with a start,
“O Lord bless my heart!
I’ve bitten myself underneath!”

The Trouble With Limericks

Saturday, October 1st, 2011

There’s more than just one limerick,
Attempting to make me so sick;
It takes so much time
to find a great rhyme.
I might as well go eat pizza.

And another from Wilemutt
