Those Sweaty Limericks!

Hop over to Madeleine Kane's Blog to join in with the
Limerick Off She has set the first line of last week's contest as:

A gal/guy who was covered in sweat

At the risk of offending sensibilities, here's my rather risqué offerings:

A gal who was covered in sweat
Was shunned by the guys in her set.
Though she smelt rather ripe
She was determined to Skype
And was able to date on the Net
A guy who was covered in sweat
Made his lady loves rather upset
As he slipped and he slithered
His ardour just withered
Leaving appetites sorely unmet.

Mine received an honourable mention.

Over the past few days I have been busy and also poorly and extremely tired.
Also the shower (of 20yrs) decided to pack up and the boiler (of only 8 yrs) decided to do likewise, so we got all immersional resorting to the Immersion switch for our hot water, at least, while we awaited the nice repair chappies.



  1. Thanks for linking to my Limerick-Offs and congratulations, once again, on your Honorable Mention.

    Feel better soon!

  2. Well aren't you the risque one. Go take a cold shower. You deserve it!


  3. I loved teh limericks. And I'm so sorry to hear you've had to do repains at your house. I don't know what's worse, that or car repair.

  4. Great Limericks! I love that she was still able to date on the net.
