Lovely Limericks

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

Here's mine:

A guy in the mood for a bite
Was in for a terrible fright
As he lunged for her throat
She grabbed onto his scroat
And squeezed ‘til the stars shone quite bright

Here's mine for previous weeks:

A popular gal who was fickle
Was reluctant to bet on a Nickel.
‘A Shilling’ she said
‘May just get me to bed,
But a Franc will ensure slap and tickle!’

A guy who was fast on his feet
Thought a peeping-tom lifestyle quite neat.
In their amorous throes
Those he spied on, just froze
While he’d beaten a hasty retreat.


  1. I think I have successfully removed the intense debate glitch from my comments box. The following comments were lost in the switch back to blogger comments:

    Old Kitty said: EXCELLENT limericks!! I love them all! Yay!!! Good for you!!

    More please!!!

    Take care

    Laila said: Haha! That was terrific. I might never get the slap and tickle one out of my mind now. :)

    LOL! Thank you so much ladies

    I hope many more of you can continue commenting on my posts now. :O)

  2. Hi Madeleine,
    Lovely limericks, indeed.

    I like the ways
    You coined a phrase
    I pound with dread
    From the bang on my head
    And now I'm in a daze

  3. Ha love them, and the fact that you embrace the idea that limericks are meant to be a bit saucy :-)
