Laughing Along With A Limerick

Here’s your Monday smile – 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 GLUE:

Keith Channing:

My wife sent me out for some glue,

Where to buy it, I hadn’t a clue.

I walked past a pub,

Stepped into a club

And downed a hot toddy or two.

Paul Mastaglio:

I got stuck with the theme, glue,

Didn’t know what to do,

So I thought to myself,

There’s a book on that shelf,

That’ll probably give me a clue.

Christine Mallaband-brown:

I’m trying to learn something new,

But I can’t remember what’s true?

I’m very confused

And a bit bemused

Need facts to stick in my mind, like glue!

Trent’s World:

There once was a girl named Sue

Who stuck to Bill like glue

When he asked why

She started to cry

“Because I love you!”

There once was a boy named Sid

Who always wore a cool lid

It stayed on like glue

Even when the wind blew

So nobody saw the bald spot it hid

There was a dog name Lucky

Who was very cute and plucky

’til he spilled the glue jar

And spread it near and far

Now he seems pretty yucky.


Little Pete didn’t know what to do

He found himself in a bit of a stew

His wig wouldn’t stick

Then he thought of a trick

And smothered his bald pate with glue.

Kim Smyth:

There once was a woman named Sue

Who found she was in need of glue

When tape wouldn’t hold

She tried syrup; quite bold!

She knew not what else she could do!

Geoff Le Pard:

There are those that have called her heinous

To detach, with one blow, her bloke’s penis.

But when later she threw it

So back he’d not glue it

Well, many have said, ‘What a genius.’

And Trent‘s in response to reading Geoff’s:

It sounds like Ms. Bobbitt

Who cut him to the size of a hobbit

And it is true

No stitches nor glue

Worked once into the street she did lob it.

Rhen Laird:

July’s temps are getting hot

Fan of summer heat, I’m not

Love sunny sky’s cloudless blue

But sweat on skin feels like glue

If I melt away…please, forget-me-not.

  1. Ooh – a five-letter prompt. This calls for an acrostic limerick.

    Fight the good fight, they all say.
    I tried it and it went okay.
    Go at it like Hell,
    Hope it goes well,
    Then try once again the next day.

  2. I had a fight with the Hulk
    He was renound for his bodily bulk
    I grabbed at his arm
    And smiled with great charm
    Then I kicked him and made him sulk!

    I once took a flight to Mars
    Sailing through the silvery stars
    I zoomed through space
    With the greatest of haste
    To return to the planet that’s ours
    He was in a terrible plight
    For that bruiser wanted to fight
    It was over naught
    That he would’ve fought
    So turning tail, he took flight

    We were terrified to see a fight
    Nature offered a horrific sight
    Vultures circling around
    It was simply profound
    Murder and dinner in broad daylight


  5. Paul Mastaglio says:

    A bit aggressive, this theme, Esther,
    To be sure, it’ll be a tester,
    Time to draw myself up to my full height,
    Get ready for the fight,
    On second thoughts, I’ll go for a siesta!

    Cheers Paul 😁

  6. Marsha says:

    If you are lusting for fright
    Then go and get in a fight.
    In a bar or store,
    Way down to your core,
    You’ll shake and quiver all night.

  8. Valerie Fish says:

    We’d never had such a huge fight
    We were at it well into the night
    Boy was making up fun
    A new life begun
    Nine months later, a little mite.

  9. Valerie Fish says:

    Thanks Esther

    Hi Esther! Hope you’re having a good day 🙂 Here’s mine:
