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 FOOL:

Keith Channing:

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.

Christine Mallaband-brown:

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!

John Reynolds:

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.


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!

Kim Smyth:

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!

Rhen Laird:

Don’t be a fool, giving place to despair

Tearing what remains of too-thin hair

Step back from life’s crazy whirligig

Before you’re forced to invest in wig

Eat big bowl of fruity sherbet, lift faith-filled prayer

Murray Clarke:

There was an old lady from Poole

Who, in lockdown, ate nothing but spinach.

When asked why she did it

She replied, ‘You may think I’m an idiot

But I assure you I’m nobody’s fool!’

  1. So here goes,

    A lesson in weight loss I thought I’d teach,
    but then I heard an almighty screech
    I ran into the kitchen
    and saw her cravings were itching
    I’d put the chocolate up way out of reach.

    All the best 🙂

    It was just out of reach, It was enough to make you screech, My favourite jar on the top shelf, I was only trying to be kind to myself, I said through gritted teeth.

    Cheers Paul 😀

  3. I went for a drive to the beach
    And bought ice creams at one pound each.
    I sat by the water
    But then my young daughter
    Dropped her lolly with one hell of a screech!

  5. Whilst studying night-flying fowl
    My gaze landed on a Screech Owl
    I thought it a scoop
    Till it started to poop
    Can somebody pass me a towel?

    Vacation may be out of reach
    If we don’t go I will screech!
    Hubs needs a break
    And I need the lake
    Or better yet, a lovely beach!

    Reblogged this on lyncrain and commented:

    there were two men at the local beach
    one of them made up his mind to screech
    the other hung his head
    there’s nothing to be said
    when fools flock together at the beach

    a little morning humor 🙂

    Hi Esther, I got your name from both Charli Mills and saw a post on Keith Kreates, blog. I love limericks. Here’s mine.
    A young woman on Tuesday did teach
    But she wanted to get to the beach.
    When she opened the door
    A box fell to the floor,
    “Kids, we caught her!” She started to screech.

    As they were picnicking on the beach
    Mum suddenly let out a huge screech
    From right out of the sky
    A greedy gull swung by
    And swiftly swooped off with her peach

    They say if you can’t do, teach.
    Which led them to ask of Ms Bleach
    The question: ‘can she
    really be a banshee
    If she can’t scream let alone screech…?’
