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 last week was FRIEND.

Keith Channing:

I once had a really good friend

Twas a thing I thought never would end

But when he shaved his beard

He looked totally weird

Like a pig, or at least its back end.

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

I thought you were my best friend

But when you asked me to lend

You a thousand pounds

To buy a pair of hounds

I knew our friendship must end!

Paul Mastaglio:

Can you comprehend

What I intend

Be a listening ear

When you want someone near

To be your friend.

Kim Smyth:

Faye was my very best friend-

On that, we could always depend-

Until that sad day-

She moved far away-

Now tethered by phones til the end.

Jael Stevens:

I had believed I was better off as ‘lone-ranger’

Born with gifts, expertise to journey, ‘odd-stranger’

But older, some wiser, I’ve learned at life’s end

You can’t share with yourself like you do with a friend

This Christmas I won’t kneel alone by Lord’s manger.

Ajay Simon Richard:

Call for help, a friend.

Don’t wait till the end.

Friend in need is friend indeed.

Remember friends for good deed.

Don’t delay the discord to mend.

Sharon Tingle:

We have been together for decades

Sharing secrets and championing charades

A good friend you remained

Until you acted quite deranged

Accusing me of stealing those marmalades.

  1. Santa’ll be here soon enough
    Along with a sleigh-full of stuff.
    Naughty or nice,
    Tiers will suffice.
    And who said this year should be rough?

  2. Ritu says:

    You need to lose weight, dear Santa
    All I’m hearing is you pant-a
    As you rush around
    Chimneys, up and down
    Just kidding, it’s just a bit of bant-a!

    Good thing, Rudolph, my friend
    Because I could start on you and your end
    Not the red one, that’s fine
    It’s your expanded behind
    Are you following the Kardashian trend?

    Sorry, feeling silly, locked up in isolation, Esther!

  3. Paul Mastaglio says:

    You’ve got to be bold
    Or so I’ve been told
    To offer a Fanta
    To dear old Santa
    But I fear it’ll be too darn cold.

    Cheers Paul (Sorry Santa, Mulled wine didn’t rhyme. Oops, I think it just did!) 🤣 Happy Christmas Esther and to hoping for a better year in 2021.

  4. TanGental says:

    As parents we parrot the mantra
    ‘Be good or you’ll miss out on Santa’.
    But they know we’ll regret
    Making good on our threat
    By morphing from angel to gangster.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, Esther..!

  5. Santa fed the reindeer team
    Gave them water from the stream
    Bran mash and carrots too
    Lots of apples and a few
    Mincepies for Rudolph so keen

  7. Santa comes with Christmas,
    Bringing to all, charismas.
    Corona forced social distancing,
    Cannot do group dancing.
    Instead, at home can watch cinemas.

  9. Jael Stevens says:

    Can’t remember if I already linked up here (Christmas blur 🙂 )…

  10. Sharon Tingle says:

    Says my baby girl:
    “Will Santa bring me a black pearl?”
    A pearl! Whatever for?
    For the missing eye of Teddy Theodore
    So we can dance a whirly twirl!
