The court jester entertained the crowd
They loved him and he was very proud
But the king was mad
Thought his act was bad
So he ended up in a filthy shroud.

Honey and Marmite tie the knot

Post by Stardust on Wed 18 Jan 2017, 09:29

We all know that opposites attract,
and the unknown appeals, that's a fact,
so it shouldn't shock
and we mustn't mock
when Miss Honey weds Sir Yeast Extract.

I'm running out, it seems,
Of ideas, words and themes
But I'll do my best
To take care of the rest
Even only if in my dreams.

The Muse has decided to rest
and not to help out in our quest
for tales told in rhyme,
she has not the time.
We can't do it alone, had you guessed?

It's known that the Muse can be fickle
And send all your nerve ends a-prickle
You can't force her hand
Or make a demand
It's worse than a relentless tickle!

The more you beg her and implore,
the more all your pleas she'll ignore.
Put it out of your head,
do something else instead,
till the Muse returns just as before.

Good idea--and thank you for that
With myself I'll have a good chat
I'll forget about verse
Lengthy or terse
O, I know! I'll go feed the cat!!

The stray cat was watching our Feather,
well hidden amongst all the heather,
she knew food would be found
and left out on the ground
just for her and whatever the weather.


PS: the cat (not Feather) was hiding in the heather. yahboocat

Old Joe was a miserly moaner,
shunned company, he was a loner.
Noone would be so brash
as to ask him for cash,
or aught else, he was never a donor.

An old woman, stunted and bent,
was poor and could not pay her rent.
Landlord said: "Have no fear,
I won't throw you out, dear.
You can live in my son's old scout tent.

There was a young man lived in Cork
who said he'd no longer eat pork.
"It's unclean", he would say,
and so now every day
the silly fool eats ham from York.

St Valentine's Day

Post by Stardust on Tue 14 Feb 2017, 11:07

"Where are you, my own Valentine?"
sang Daisy out in the sunshine.
"I am here and in love"
said a voice from above
and the tall sergeant said: "Please be mine'.

Daisy refused his request
For she thought that it would be best
To shun his advances
And so take no chances
For she hated his yellow string vest.

The sergeant then threw off his vest
and showed off his muscles and chest.
Daisy changed her mind fast,
she cried out "Yes!" at last
and they honeymooned in Budapest.

The honeymoon-it was just great
Midsummer day was the date
They made love in the sun
Had all kinds of fun
Yet for bedtime they just could not wait!!

Then a Hungarian girl came between,
such a beauty there never was seen.
Stole the sergeant away
in much less than a day;
Daisy came back home angry and mean.

She set about getting divorced
She knew that her hand had been forced
And plans she was cooking
She already was looking
for a second husband of course!!

But none of the lads found her favour,
for every one was "last month's flavour".
Daisy gave up on fun,
became instead a nun.
Now she's married to her church's saviour.

Little Lisa was stamping her feet
cos her Mum wouldn't give her a sweet,
so she climbed up on a chair
reached out for a jelly bear,
but got bruised when she fell off the seat.

A girl sat alone and forlorn,
in two her young heart had been torn.
But then a new neighbour
gave life back its savour,
and now their first son has been born.

The baby was cute and so chubby
With a face matching that of her hubby
But into muck it would crawl
Then blubber and bawl
When it found itself smelly and grubby.

In Devon there lived an old toad
who found a frog hurt in the road.
He quickly helped up his friend
but a van came round the bend
and squashed them both under its load.

In London John went out to dine,
drank much of the very best wine,
but way over the top,
he knew not when to stop
and fell "Splash!" into the Serpentine.

The stallion was not very tame
He did not respond to his name
No-one could ride him
Saddle or guide him
If they tried, they ended uo lame.

Two puppies, by name Flip and Flop,
were passing outside a toy shop;
saw a "ball" big and bright,
but then scampered in fright,
when the balloon burst with a loud "Pop!".

A small cloud fell right out of the sky,
cos he'd not yet learned quite how to fly,
nor yet even to float,
so he fell on a goat,
who's all fluffy now and we know why.

There was a big man known as Joe,
who lumbered about, very slow.
"There's no hurry", he said,
"we'll be soon enough dead,
I"m giving my soul time to grow".

A very young computer geek
sat watching his screen all the week.
He ate never a crumb

till his mind became numb
and his body all flabby and weak.

Paulina and Paulo from Rome
split up but rowed over their home.
They each wanted the house,
then discovered a mouse,
Paulo's comfy there now all alone.

Young Sal was too fond of fruit crumble.
She never spoke, only could mumble,
cos her mouth overflowed
with crumble overload
and her words came out all of a jumble.

On the garden wall, an ugly cat
glared at neighbours - he hissed and he spat;
till a cute Siamese
answered back with a sneeze,
cat fell down and a car squashed him flat.

The old bull was out in all weathers
Cow Daisy and he not together
He gave up all hope
For he just couldn't cope
And strangled himself with his tether.

Farewell to an artist whose name
Is in rock n roll’s hall of fame
Who once found a thrill
On Blueberry Hill
Fats Domino: Ain’t That a Shame.

More topical limericks in that link.
like this one pirat

The Catalans’ grand referendum
On powers and how to extendum
Appeared to annoy
A chap named Rajoy
Who’s moving instead to suspendum.
__________
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-41710873

or 
According to minister Grayling
If EU discussions are failing
We fall off the edge
And plant up more veg
Apparently Brexit’s plain sailing!

There was a young lady called Jane
People said she was a pain
No-one spoke to her
Her hygiene was poor
In fact she smelt like a drain.

I need a new door for my hall,
The replacement I bought was too tall.
So I hacked it and chopped it,
And carefully lopped it,
And now the dumb thing is too small.

Nicked it from here Feather pirat   http://pun.me/pages/funny-limericks.php

Another one from same place -

An elderly man called Keith,
Mislaid his set of false teeth.
They'd been laid on a chair,
He'd forgot they were there,
Sat down, and was bitten beneath

lol!

The Wheel, the new Shard, and Big Ben,
Might be landmarks in London's top ten,
But as an aesthete,
I say they can't compete,
With St Paul's by Sir Christopher Wren.

There once was a person from Lyme
Who married three wives at a time.
When asked, "Why a third?"
He replied, "One's absurd,
And bigamy, sir, is a crime!"

A funny young fellow named Perkins
Was terribly fond of small gherkins
One day after tea
He ate ninety three
And pickled his internal workings

There was a young curate at Kew
Who kept a large cat in a pew,
Where he taught her each week
A new letter of Greek,
But she never got farther than Mu.



And a rather odd one...


The limerick, peculiar to English,
Is a verse that's hard to extinguish.
Once Congress in session
Decreed its suppression
But people got around it by writing the last line without any rhyme or meter.

There once was a farmer from Leeds,
Who swallowed a packet of seeds.
It soon came to pass,
He was covered with grass,
But has all the tomatoes he needs.
