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 TOAST:

Christine Mallaband-brown:

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.

Trent’s World:

“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.

Kim Smyth:

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!

Keith Channing:

Toast for breakfast is quite alimental

Or for lunch would not be detrimental.


Some like it for tea

Though that could be termed incidental.

Paul Mastaglio:

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.

Val Fish:

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.

  1. Some warriors in far distant lands
    Paint bold, coloured lines on their hands
    Each mark tells a story
    Love, victory or glory
    Look well, ’tis a spell, not demands.

    It may be lacking in quality, but do I get a point or turning up?

  2. trentpmcd says:

    She asked him to sit for a spell
    When he said he didn’t feel well
    Does she have plan
    For this recumbent man?
    Only time will tell…

    She put a spell on me
    As i was trying to flee
    Now I’m stuck
    In magical muck
    I hope she sets me free!

    Oh, what a terrible punk
    Lord only knows what he thunk
    His math was Hell
    And he couldn’t spell
    It was natural he would flunk

  3. Ritu says:

    I need to come up with a spell
    To get rid of that dastardly smell
    The curry was hot
    I can tell from your bot
    I’m living in curry fart hell!

  4. lyncrain says:

    Hocus pocus, that’s hardly a spell
    At least, not one a good witch would tell
    Ditch the mumble jumble
    Or we’re gonna rumble
    For a hefty price I’ve got some to sell 🤣

  5. Now Merlins an ancient old wizard
    He can turn you into a lizard.
    To avoid this strong spell
    Just run like hell!
    Into a convenient Blizzard!

  6. Kim Smyth says:

    There once was a girl who spun tells
    As if she were under a spell
    Her words were so silly
    Her subjects, willy nilly
    Nobody understood her, oh well!

  7. Paul Mastaglio says:

    Take a walk down the alphabet,
    You might recognise the letters yet,
    Pick the right ones and you’ll have a story to tell,
    Pick the wrong ones and the words won’t spell,
    It’ll be a tale you’ll want to forget.

    Hocus pocus,
    Just gotta focus,
    Working on a spell,
    I think you can tell,
    Perhaps I’ll get another locust.

    That’s your lot,
    I’ve lost the plot,
    Have to stop for a spell,
    Until I get well,
    Then I’ll be back on the dot.

    Cheers Paul 😁
