Limericks

Post by Stardust on Tue 03 Jan 2017, 13:02

Starting a new Limerick thread since all the previous ones on various forums seem to have disappeared into the internet archives.

These are not perfect but we do our best, so I'll start the ball rolling.

- - - - - - - - -

 
There was a young lady from Brent

who all of her savings had spent

on outings and booze

and games bound to loose

now the silly girl can’t pay her rent.

 
- - - - - - - - -

Miss Gwendoline sat in her bower

Until it was half past the hour

She smoked thin Russian cigs

Which caught fire like twigs

She was saved by a lucky rain shower.

Frankie was after some fun
Down the slippery path he did run
But his feet let him down
And he felt like a clown
When he touched down on ice with his bum.

An old gentleman, name of Joe
with painful gout in his big toe
was prouncing around
and fell on the ground
lost his toe, but the gout's gone you know.

She was carrying a tray from the room
With no feeling of impending doom
But with the dog in the way
She started to sway
And was flat on the floor pretty soon.

This was how I cracked my ankle bone last year.

Oh, Feather, that must have been painful for you and Chica. Ouch!

A builder who ran out of bricks
constructed a house with just sticks
then glued them together
to withstand the weather
but it's just fit for hens and their chicks.

Dot loved reading mystery tales
Full of thunder and lightning and gales
Till one that she read
Sent her right off her head
Now she's constantly way off the rails.

A singer who drank too much wine
and got lyrics wrong all the time,
was whistled and booed,
hissed, jostled and shooed,
cos he never remembered a line.

An astronaut known as Fred
Wanted to gain space cred
So he took a short trip
Outside the spaceship
Now he's hanging to life by a thread.

cheesy 

A silly young man from New York
unhappily sat on a fork,
he jumped up with a start,
his bum really did smart,
that silly young man from New York.

When motoring slowly through France
A beautiful lady called Blanche
Saw a handsome young man
In a bright yellow van
And thought--yes, I would take a chance.

When Penny adopted a dog,
from her pond he swallowed a frog.
So instead of a bark,
all the neighbours would hark
a strange croaking like fiends in a bog.

When shopping one day in a store
Bob knew that he couldn't spend more
So he nicked a blue tie
And, holding it high,
He made a quick break for the door.
A security guard was nearby
And, giving chase, he did fly
After the thief
And to his relief,
Nabbed the culprit and the blue tie.

A handsome young prince from the North
fell off the bridge into the Forth.
He gave out a loud yell,
then he swam, swam like hell,
but he's there still, afloat in the Forth.

A cruiser approached him in time
He was yanked up on board on a line
Fell asleep for some hours
Through sunshine and showers
Now he's in Amsterdam and feels fine.

A beautiful princess from Rye
could never stop eating plum pie.

She ate morning, noon, night,

swallowed bite after bite,
till she weighed twenty tons bye and bye.

The contortionist puts on a show
Better than even he knows
For during his act
He falls on his back
With his private parts wrapped round his nose.

Oh dear, how embarassing for him. Embarassed facepalm 

A carrier pigeon from Rome
got lost and could not get back home,
so he settled instead
where he found a spare bed,
in a coop by the Rhine in Cologne.

Tom's situation was grim
He felt totally out on a limb
He was so bereft
His sweetheart had left
So he purchased a puppy called Tim.
Now Tim was a wonderful gift
Giving Tom an emotional lift
They were always together
Whatever the weather
And soon Tom was no longer miffed.

There was a bored lad name of Buster,
too lazy and never could muster
the energy needed to move
and not to get stuck in a groove,
till the flies were beginning to cluster.

They flew and they buzzed round his head
When he ran or just lay in his bed
Till one day 'twas found
As he lay on the ground
That he wasn't asleep; he was dead!!

surprised

A witch living inside a wood
was shunned and was not understood,
till she saved a lose child
from the savage and wild.
So now everyone knows that she's good.

The Headmaster was in a tizz
Then thought of an end of term quiz
With girls versus boys
And prizes of toys
And for him a glass of bucksfizz.(Sp?)

A stray dog who stopped at my door,
came in and lay down on the floor.
I had not the heart
to say we must part,
so he's here to stay forevermore.

I feed a nice cat--she's a stray
I have done for many a day
But I still can't pet her
To make her feel better
If I try, she just runs away.
Over time she's got a bit tamer
I've often thought I could name her
But what'd be the use
With this wary puss
She wouldn't respond--can't blame her.

With a stray dog or cat, we can't tell,
but can guess they were not treated well.
If they're patiently wooed
with soft words, daily food,
they'll adopt you and forget their hell.

The cottage was ever so nice
So she bought it at a good price
But lived to regret it
Would never forget it
As it was infested with mice.

A baby boy teething all night,
gave his parents a terrible fright.
For when two teeth peeked out,
Mum and Dad gave a shout,
little Dracula was quite a sight.

My dog--she has just been fed
Please notice what I have just said
I'm having my tea
But she's staring at me
And refusing to go to her bed.

giggle

An elegant lady from France,
no man could pass without a glance.
Her heels and head high,
proud as she swept by,
till she tripped up and ruined the dance.

She tottered away in the huff
All feathers and flounces and fluff
She undressed at speed
Down to the last bead
And cried for an hour in the buff.

...
But Parisian bred from her birth,
stopped her tears, because she knew her worth.
Returned to the ball
and amazed them all,
thus making them swallow their mirth.

Margaret, a lady from Leeds,
Was known for her daring deeds
A pumpkin she ate
And caused her own fate
By choking to death on the seeds.

But Heimlich was there, Maggie spat
out pumpkin seeds onto the mat,
so she regained her life,
and became Heimlich's wife.
Now she puts all the seeds in a hat.

On an oil rig late last night
Ted was stationed in bright moonlight
But a nut had worked free
Half way down to the sea
And Ted had to screw it in tight
He was lowered right down to the spot
Now,safe he surely was not
For the rope was too thin
So he couldn't begin
To do the work that he ought.
He jiggled and twisted and swayed
Till the rope it loosened and frayed
Poor Ted hit the sea
Shouting "God,save me!"
But nobody noticed he'd prayed.

Though Ted's shouting fell on deaf ears,
with drowning the worst of his fears,
came into his sight
dolphins in the night
who saved him. He lived on for years.

I knew you would save him, Stardust.

Mike was messing around with some ink
Some of it blue, and some pink
He wanted to do
A temporary tattoo
For when he went out for a drink.

But Mike was allergic and so
he came out in spots, don't you know.
Some pink and some blue,
his face swelled up too.
Had to give up the pub, to his woe.

The woman just wouldn't give in
She kept on drinking that gin
Till the bottle was done
But the battle she won
For she found a drop more in a tin
She thought she had had that already
When last night she'd had a quick bevvy
But to her delight
There was some for tonight
Now for her warm bed she was ready.

A sprightly girl hailing from Wales
was battling her way through the sales.
She ne'er took a rest,

shoes, clothes, found the best,
but none the right size - how she wails!

Dan was feeling poorly and sick
Got a visit from his old pal, Mick
Who gave him some pills
Which got rid of his chills
So now he's in super fine nick.

An arrogant man, name of Tony,
could speak nothing but pure baloney.
Along came a copper
armed with a gob stopper
and shut up the big-mouthed old phoney.

In the garden Mary just dug
Hoping to find the old jug
Thrown out by mistake
At her uncle's wake
But all she unearthed was a slug.

One day Charlie got lost in the fog;
he roamed off the path into a bog.
He was starting to sink
when a bark made him blink,
he was saved by a walker with dog.

When he was giving his very last "Glug"
The Alsatian gave him a tug
Pulled him free of the mire
And soon by the fire
He gave the good dog a huge hug.

A ruined old man from the glen,
in the mountains fixed up a den,
ran his own B&B,
served up coffee and tea,
now he holds his head high among men.

Dennis just could not be fatter
He thought that it didn't matter
But one night at a gig
They were playing a jig
When he burst through the drums with a clatter.

The drummer was angry and red,
I couldn't repeat what he said!
Because Dennis stuck fast
as his bum was so vast,
had to "wear" the drum even in bed.

The drum made him keep rolling out
and Dennis was starting to pout,
so firemen cut him free,
Dennis shouted with glee
and vowed he'd lose weight, without doubt.

He decided he'd go on a fast
Thinking that it wouldn't last
But after a week
He started to reek
For his innards were so full of gas!!

The Doctor said: "Take charcoal pills,
and exercise, walking the hills,
you'll soon be in the pink
and no longer will stink.
Now pay me these two hefty bills'.
