Slippery Limericks

Hop over to Madeleine Kane's Blog to join in with the Limerick Off.
Maybe you're not a fan of Limericks? I'd love to know.

Ms. Kane sets the first line of the limerick each week and the rest is up to you:


Here's mine

A fellow who just let it slip
That his marriage was merely a blip
Had to run for his life
From his long-suffering wife
Who was wielding a broom and whip
A fellow who just let it slip
That he liked nothing more than to strip
Was arrested one day
With his parts on display
When he failed to remember his zip

  2. Thanks Old Kitty
    I have a feeling that Limericks aren't everyone's cup of tea, as I get so few comments. Or maybe these are just too raunchy! LOL!

  5. These made me laugh. I suck at rhyming or poetry , so am always envious of others who can write in the genre :)

  8. I love it. If you must write a limerick they might as well be a tad naughty. :) And yours rock!!
