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 CHEESE.
I say, here’s a jolly good wheeze,
A jape fit for us retirees.
Let’s see if these mice
Will do something nice,
If we give them some smelly French cheese.
There once was a chap who ate cheese
Upon thereafter he would sneeze
It seemed to his friends
He’d give it up in the end
But no! He said, “More, if you you please!”
I’ll write this limerick if you please
About the smell on the breeze
Its olfactory delight
Is an odour of might!
Stinking Bishop, a very strong Cheese!
Relax, don’t freeze
You’ll be fine, Kate
All ready for your big date
So, for the camera, say cheese!
Please say “cheese” when I snap
You with this funny phone app
Beauty it makes
Of all it takes
Even when you look like crap.
Debbie and her sister Louise,
Were as different as chalk and cheese,
One shy and retiring,
One always aspiring,
But both have the most knobbly knees!
Oh, Jonny, you’re such tease
No, really. Stop it, please
Our pairing’s not fated
You’re sounding quite dates
Quite honestly, I’ve never head so much cheese.
“Avez-vous de bons fromages en France?”
“Bien sûr, Monsieur. Les meilleurs du monde!”
“Stilton? Wensleydale? Kings among cheeses!”
“Ooh là là! You English. Such teases!
But we agree. D’accord! Of cheese, we’re fond.”
There was a young farmer from Cheddar,
Who fancied a girl called Jane Pedder.
He went down on one knee,
Promising limitless cheese.
She screamed, “YES!” and he went on to wed her.
Where in the world would I be without cheese?
For comfort food, it’s a good choice to please:
Smoked Gouda, Havarti, Champagne Cheddar creamy…
And thick toasted cheese sandwich…OMG, dreamy!
Yummy plate of my homemade mac & cheese…does it tease?
I only have to say the word ‘cheese,’
My labrador rolls off the couch with ease
You would think I hadn’t fed her.
As she drools under the cheddar.
And lifts up her paw to say ‘please’.
Linking People 2003:
Selenium of cheese good for hair and skin,
Fat, protein, calcium and vitamin,
Zinc, phosphorus, Omega-3, fatty acids, riboflavin replenish.
When externally applied, mops skin blemish.
If spoilt, apply to skin, not throw to bin!
The villain would have escaped free
Had he not stopped to pocket some brie.
Angry claws ripped at his elbow
Causing his deadly free-fall through a window.
While Happy the cat, snatched the cheese with glee.
