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 BRAIN.
Brain is what makes people smart;
Read the writings of René Descartes.
Although, just like you
I won’t think it’s true.
Not until it is on a flip-chart.
Having a really smart brain
Using it to come in out of the rain
Is so very smart
Yet most people don’t start
Until wet, now that’s really insane!
My brain hurts so much more now
I’ve just tried calculus you know
It didn’t make sense
And made me so tense
My maths skills have taken a blow!
If you don’t use your brain
Take time to think
Then with a nod and a wink
You’ll be back in the game.
Today I can’t brain nor rhyme
For I have very little time
My mind is fog
And stuck in a bog
My poetry attempts are a crime.
A zombie has eaten my brain
And has left me quite insane
For his sup
He slurped it up
And my skull he did drain.
My darling daughter is Laura Jane,
Just like her Dad she is quite insane,
She loves to be tidy,
Like many girl Friday,
But oftentimes – it does in my brain!
If he ever used his brain
Jack would be right as rain
Instead, he won’t think
Just has another drink
And let’s people think he’s insane!
For my Dad, Tony Greenfield.
How brainy was old Bony Tony?
He’d often speak utter baloney.
His greatest advice?
“If ten words will suffice,
Use more and you’ll often be lonely.”
Her brain was the size of a pea
Her cup size, a huge Double ‘D’
She wasn’t that dumb,
Success was to come
Flaunting her assets on page three.
A well-hung young fella from Spain,
Said, ‘I’ve really no wish to complain,
That the girls from Lanzarote
See me as male totty,
Rather than for the size of my brain.’
The world’s tiniest girl named Lorraine,
Was a genius in spite a wee brain.
Her brilliance was lost!
In the Spring’s melting frost.
She was tragically swept down a drain.
Linking People 2003:
Education is to train the brain to think,
Vocalise and use the brain or lose it without a blink!
Brain controls the neuroendocrine system.
Endocrinal pituitary and pineal glands in rhythm,
With brain and spinal cord prevent brain shrink!
