Laughing Along With A Limerick

Happy Monday! It’s limerick time! 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 NOSE:

Keith Channing:

As every podiatrist knows

You must have good shoes and fresh hose

You may think it flirty

To let them get dirty

But it’s quite an assault on the nose.

Kim Smyth:

A lady was presenting a rose

Passed it right by the guys nose

The thorn it did catch

And delivered a scratch

Now they watch as the blood flows.

Christine Mallaband-brown:

Don’t stick your nose in that pot!

Said the husband to his wife Dot

I just had to sneeze

He said, and the breeze…

Covered the pot in my snot!

John Reynolds:

There was an old lady from Ayr

Who sat in an old rocking chair

She said to her friend

Who was quite round the bend

I fancy a chocolate eclair.

Rhen Laird:

Sad world has truly taken sick

Looks for any medicament’s new trick

Folks complain of moody boredom

Some are tipsy if drinks afford ’em

But, humor’s still free…and old gal’s paltry limerick.

Val Fish:

It was all planned, a cruise round the Med

Now thanks to Covid 19, instead

I’m stuck home on my tod

Whist hubby, the daft sod

Is self-isolating in the shed.

  1. I felt like I needed to cool
    So went for a dip in the pool
    Like a bird I did fly
    But the pool was bone dry
    Small wonder I felt like a fool.

    There was a young man from Chad.
    Who at times, was a bit of a lad.
    He stole a red car,
    and a one-string guitar
    Then, chased down the road, by his dad.
    Have a great day.

  3. I eat at the ritz as a rule.
    the food really makes me drool!
    From canapés to icecream
    Their chefs are a top team
    Especially the great gooseberry fool!

  4. Ritu says:

    A young man from Liverpool
    Thought he looked rather cool
    Music blaring from inside
    His souped-up ride
    To be honest, he just looked a fool!

    Sorry I missed last week… my brain went blank, and Monday was my first full time day back!

  5. Kim Smyth says:

    The town’s bully was such a fool
    Driving around being cool
    Or so he thought
    Until he was brought
    To his knees by a very big tool!

    Your prompts are beginning to vie for week’s favorite–just when I thought despair would win, I see a new Limerick prompt…and I breathe again, knowing I can surely put a humorous spin on things. Thank you, Esther!!
