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 make you smile this Monday. The prompt was DARE:

Keith Channing:

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.


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!”


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.

Paul Mastaglio:

Do you dare,

To pay your fare,

To go to another place,

To put a smile on your face,

Just because it’s there.

John Reynolds:

There was a young man from Spain

Who went on a journey by train

He went down the track

But never came back

They said it affected his brain.

Christine Mallaband-brown:

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

Chelsea Owens:

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.

Kim Smyth:

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!

  1. The redoubtable captain named Cook
    Thought Canada well worth a look
    At great risk of failure
    He sailed to Australia
    That’s what ended up in a book.

    Just one look, That’s all it took, And I was smitten, Now got myself a kitten, That’s okay in my book.

    Cheers Paul 😀

    George was a confident chap
    Who’d woo girls with a tip of his hat.
    On Thursdays a nurse Louise
    Let him do pretty much what he pleased
    If he promised to give her a clap.

    There once was a very naughty book
    That had a most intriguing hook
    The photo on front
    Was truly quite blunt
    Enticing everyone to look


    The woman had a look that could kill
    If the intention of her glance was ill
    But once in a while
    She would wink and smile
    Which they say was quite a thrill

    Another for Lockdown

    A doctor called Frederick Lee
    Tried sex at his desk with nurse Fi.
    It wasn’t successful
    And rather too stressful
    Till she dressed in her full PPE.

    And a better version of the first maybe…

    George was a confident chap
    Who’d woo nurses with banter and chat
    Till one Thursday Louise
    Made George’s blood freeze
    When she told him she’d give him the clap

    There once was a book worth a look
    The page-turner had every hook
    Language so easy
    Made reading quite breezy
    A catchy title was all that it took!


  7. Watch out for the train! Said the bear.


  8. Watch out for the train, said the bear.
    To her cub, who didn’t know it was there.
    You may not see it coming,
    When you are out running,
    Be safe, – your hi-viz you should wear!

  9. He sat at the glass, drank his tea
    He waited, you see, to see she.
    Surprised, then, was he
    When she said to cease:
    From her lawyer, a letter, received.
