Laughing Along With Another Limerick

When I first asked you to write a limerick as a bit of fun to cheer everyone up, little did I realise what I was starting. It seems you’ve relished them and would like to make this a regular thing to bring a smile to a Monday morning. Here are you wonderful creations from last week. More please!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

There was a young man from limerick,
Who wanted to play on his guitar, quick
He wanted to rhyme
And keep in good time,
But his mom turned the light out with the dimmer switch!

Joy Lennick‘s husband:

Frozen Revenge:

A lady whose name was Theresa
shut her old man in the freezer…
By playing the field
he got himself killed
and he’s now with the sprouts and the pizza.

Keith Channing:

I asked Alexa for a limerick. Here’s what she gave me:

There was a young man from Peru
Whose limericks stopped at line two.


The Reverend Algernon Sproggs

Secretly collects ladies clogs.

His Mum used to say

It’s better today

When he was a boy he collected newts and
large frogs

There was a lady from St Kits
Who was blessed with very large ears
She said, I know that my dears,
Large ears
Doesn’t rhyme with St Kits.

Trent’s World:

In the days of virus people are blue
So I wrote a little limerick for you
I hoped it’d be swell
But it didn’t come out so well
But it is a verse brand new.

My last limerick was so bad
It is just making me awfully sad
I tried to bring cheer
But I only heard a jeer
So now I feel I’m a terrible cad.

Those rhymes above weren’t serious
Sure, I wished they were hilarious
But they were quickly done
For a bit of fun
And I wrote them fast and furious.

Kim Smyth:

There once was a world filled with followers,
arrogant people and borrowers
Upon them a blight
Caused such keen insight
Instead, they improved our tomorrows.

    Nose pickings, said Mrs Graw
    Have practical uses galore
    By rolling and folding
    And carefully moulding
    You can make condoms, cheap, for the poor
    My old man’s from his bogey limerick collection

  2. Reblogged this on Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog and commented:

    Great Limdricka, and a great idea to ask for them. Thank you.

  4. There was an old man called Fred
    Who spent lots of time in his shed
    Singing and sawing
    All hours of the morning
    Meant his wife knew he wasn’t yet dead

    Am loving these, Esther. Will link to your post in an upcoming blog post.
    Stay safe.

    OK, couple for this week…

    There’s a thing about being inside
    A place where you can run and hide
    You might be annoyed
    But people you’ll avoid
    And keep the virus from your hide

    It seems that it was fated
    That we become socially isolated
    The people are smart
    And stay far apart
    And now the streets are de-populated

    Hmm, maybe I need to find a new topic…

    It is warm and feels like spring
    And the birds have begun to sing
    A song of rebirth
    Right here on Earth
    And the hope a new season will bring

    Better? 😉

  6. There was a man bought some loo rolls
    And half a dozen big food bowls
    When asked why he’d done it
    He replied with great wit
    Well I always eat my soup with a roll!

  7. Darlene says:

    These are hilarious! Thanks.

  8. Paul Mastaglio says:


    You, big man,

    Have nice tan,

    You, look good on telly,

    Even with fat belly,

    And you called Dan. (Had to be. Only one that rhymes!)

    Paul 😁


  9. Kim Smyth says:

    There once were some doggies so sweet
    Who liked to stay close to my feet
    They’re laying here now
    As I write this and wow!
    As usual, they’re waiting for me to eat!

    There was this bug from Wuhan
    That spreads as fast as it can
    With exponential speed
    It gets us in deep
    Going unhindered from man to man

  12. Susan says:

    Oooh Ooh ! I want to play

    I am a nurse sent home
    But relax ‘cuz I’m not sick
    Doctors don’t get their surgeries
    Unless they’re emergencies
    And our case load went down real quick

  13. Rae Reads says:

    A seventh grade student wrote this about me:
    There once was a teacher named Longest
    Who thought that she was the strongest.
    She tried to lift ten,
    Then tried once again,
    And found out she was the wrongest.

  14. Sanandi-jacq says:

    There was a old lady called June
    Whose hands were as dry as a prune.
    She washed them all day
    Wiped the virus away
    Whilst humming a solitary tune.

  15. Sanandi-jacq says:

    Alone in a garden was a rat
    Who evaded the claws of the cat.
    Along came a sage
    With a portable cage
    And re-homed the rat intact.

    (yogic principle of ahimsa – non-harming of creatures! This happened this morning.)
