Laughing Along With 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 POUT:

Keith Channing:

You see, my mum said with a pout,

You’ve no idea what life’s about

You run through the town

With your skirt upside-down

And your knickers are on inside-out!

To answer your lingering doubt,

My brother said, frying his trout.

When we get some rain

I’ll go fishing again,

And that’s what this drought pout’s about!

Christine Mallaband-brown:

I said with a great big pout

You know my greatest doubt

About going to sea

Is how the waves will be

If the water gets into the boat!

Trent’s World:

I’m going to pout and scratch my head

For all thoughts of limericks are dead

No rhyme today

I’ve got nothing to say

Perhaps I’ll go back to bed.

Ah, those rhythms came out wrong!

Like some demented children’s song!

I think I’ll shout

Then sit and pout

And fret and stew all day long.

Paul Mastaglio:

About this theme, I know nowt,

My face said with a pout,

So I put down my pen,

Returned to my den,

And refused to come out.

Kim Smyth:

My studies have me filled with doubt

They’re causing me to now pout

But practice makes you better

So, now I’ll type a letter

And, with confidence send it on out!


Will you just eat the dang sauerkraut

You’re hurting her feelings with your pout

I can’t do it, Momma

Cease with the damn drama

I gagged … out it all spewed in one spout.


She turned and posed with a pout

Of her beauty, she had no doubt

Lips inflated

Bust elevated

But to me, she just looked like a trout!

Zack and Zelda:

We’re never too old to pout

Too mature, saintly?  Rule them out

Overwhelmed, we become toddlers

Needing kind mollycoddlers

And sweet treats a-plenty, no doubt!

    There’s one thing I really hate
    When preparing for a romantic date
    Depilate, or not?
    Hairy legs are not hot
    In case we decide to mate!

  2. I had an appointment with the doc
    So I decided to wear a pink frock
    Then I thought it’s no date
    And I got there real late
    Wearing a jumper and only one sock!

  3. I felt like a bit of a fool
    As I stood by the side of the pool
    Although I’m too poor
    To buy Deglet Nour
    Why on earth should I not eat Medjool?

  4. It’s sad, but I have to relate
    When my wife asked me out on a date
    I looked at my lunch,
    My pants in a bunch
    And said I’d too much on my plate.

  5. Just for fun

    As quoted by Giles Brandreth:

    There once was a young man from Looe
    Whose limericks stopped at line two.

    That got me thinking:

    A man who was slightly more mellow,
    A charming and affable fellow,
    Got as far as line three.

    And then:

    A man on his hols in Penzance
    Thought, “I’m smart, maybe I’ll take a chance.
    I know I’ll do more,”
    And he got to line four.

    For goodness’ sake, somebody stop me!

  6. I remember when you couldn’t wait
    For my call “can we go on a date?”
    ‘Cross the threshold I carried
    You, after we’d married
    And now, you’re invariably late

  7. Ive lost all regard for the date
    It’s today, and tomorrow can wait
    Don’t try to be clever
    You can’t live forever
    Just be happy before it’s too late

  8. Kim Smyth says:

    My hubby and I never dated
    ‘Twas fate for us to be related
    It just took one dance
    And little romance
    For us to become so elated!

  9. Paul Mastaglio says:

    Her name was Kate
    And she was very late
    So I checked my phone
    To see why I was still alone
    Only to find I had the wrong date.

    Cheers Paul 😀

    I once went on a date with a cop
    Who’d a penchant for women on top
    But when his truncheon
    Failed to function
    You could say the whole thing was a flop
