Lude Limericks

Hop over to Madeleine Kane's Blog to join in with the Limerick Off

A man who was lacking in wit
Often giggled into his armpit.
While one just surmised
He had deodorized
It appears, he was feeling a nit.

 I also wrote this Limerick after hearing a listener request on ClassicFM.
The lady came from a suburb of London:

There was a young woman from Churtsey
Who never knew quite how to curtsey
She bobbed up and down
Then trod on her gown
Thrusting her cheeks out quite pertly.

  2. Madeleine Ma'am,
    I was fascinated with limericks, short and sweet with wit and humor. Toyed with it before but... Anyway tried again today and submitted into your blog. Hopefully ok!


  3. Hehehe. Your limericks always make me laugh!

  4. I love these. I grew up in a half Irish household. We had a book of limericks...never did get the old man from Nantucked out of my head. :)

  5. LOL... this reminds me of that dirty limerick...

    There once was a man from Nantucket...

  6. Very fun! Thanks for sharing

  7. I enjoyed the humor in both the limmericks. Interesting how much character you can jam into the rhymes. Nice.

    Limericks are my favorite form of poetry.
