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 TOAST:
I really don’t want to boast
But with this drink I give you a toast,
Ten gin and tonics later
Bought to me by a waiter
I’m a really very squiffy ‘mine host’!
I do like a bit of toast
Possibly more than most
Butter and jam
Or cheese and ham
I admit, sometimes I’ve overdosed!
Half a loaf of bread
Is easy to ingest, instead
Of cooking a dinner
Toast is a winner
At least it is, in my crazy head!
But the actual toasting is key
It needs to brown, just lightly
Too long, it’ll burn
Too little, I’ll spurn
Golden brown and crisp, that’ll do me.
“It’s time for a toast,” he said
After all the guests had been fed
But breakfast and wine
Don’t mix so fine
So they ate burnt bread instead.
There once was a girl who ate toast
It was she who needed it most
She was so small
And not at all tall
But now she’s so full she can boast!
Toast for breakfast is quite alimental
Or for lunch would not be detrimental.
Some like it for tea
Though that could be termed incidental.
The boiled egg peered out from its plate,
It was not like the soldiers to be late,
Perhaps they were stuck in the post,
Then they really would be toast,
What a wày to seal their fate.
As the groom was toasting his bride
A drunken guest stood up and cried
That sweet lass that you wed
Has not just been in my bed
But half the men in this room, besides.
