Laughing Along With A Limerick

It’s Monday morning and time for a limerick or two! Send in your own or here’s a prompt for you –


Here are a few limericks to brighten your Monday:


Oh, what a ghastly sight!
Wish I’d not switched on the light
Unplucked and uncoloured
No, please, just stay covered
You really did give me a fright!

Paul Mastaglio:

You gave me a fright,

When you called round the other night,

Dressed in black from head to toe,

I couldn’t tell if you were friend or foe,

Never before had I seen such a sight.

John Reynolds:

There was a young lady from Hove.
Who burnt her hand on the stove.
She shouted o god
Then she said sod,
And threw it into the road.

There was a young man from Kent.
Who ate no food in lent.
Apart from a tart
He was meaning to start
In secret, alone in his tent.

Christine Mallaband-brown:

A woman jumped up in a fright!

Her husband had been in a fight.

He had been beaten

By a tiny little kitten

Which had scratched him and taken a bite!

Rae Reads:

This is not a limerick but a parody written by a seventh grader:

Jack and Jill went up the hill

To work out all their muscles,

Near the top they met old Drac

He loved their red corpuscles.

Val Fish:

He’d never had such a fright

He turned a deathly shade of white

When mother in law

Who’s with us no more

Came calling that dark stormy night.

  1. A housewife from southwest Kentucky
    Was locally hailed as quite plucky.
    In response to a dare
    She leapt high in the air.
    What she landed in, she thought was lucky.

  2. Ritu says:

    Old Sue, always up for a dare
    Decided to shave off her hair
    Bald pate now gleaming
    She looked at us, beaming
    “Wax and polish, that’s my new self-care!”

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

  4. I dare to dream
    said the Bream
    of cheese and pickles,
    worth dimes and nickels,
    as he slowly swam up the stream.

  5. Sanandi-jacq says:

    A woman was given a dare.
    Be abundant to those in your care.
    She smothered her son.
    Gave her daughter the sun.
    And discovered more love to share.

  6. Paul Mastaglio says:


    Do you dare,

    To pay your fare,

    To go to another place,

    To put a smile on your face,

    Just because it’s there.

    Cheers Paul 😁


  7. A gloomy, blue, plushy, young bear
    ‘Mongst others of rainbow-type hair,
    Said, “Maybe it’s time
    “We gave up our rhyme;
    “After all, hardly any dare care.”

    “Au contraire,” said the bear with a heart.
    “They only need somewhere to start.”
    Holding hands, in a line –
    Grumpy joined them this time,
    “Care bear stare!” They all did their part.

    I’m not sure why the Care Bears came to me, but there you have it.

  8. Kim Smyth says:

    She grabbed life with gusto, not as a dare
    Was so much better than a life unaware
    To work she did go, with an ebb and a flow
    Then came home and let down her hair!
