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 WRONG.

Keith Channing:

Whether it be right or wrong,

Ricky will still sing his song.

Once he’s in flight,

No end in sight.

Guess we should all sing along!

Richmond Road:

Is it wrong to be sexist but gay?

Is it wrong when you think but don’t say?

Should you give false confession

Provide the wrong impression

But do what you like anyway?

Is it wrong to be right all the time?

Does it help credibility climb?

Is it wrong to use words

That are just polished turds

Is it right, just as long as they rhyme?

Is it right? Is it wrong? Is it rude?

To be me and be free. Or be prude?

Should one skinny dip?

Or stay clothed round the hip?

Or should one simply strip and go nude.

Kim Smyth:

It feels wrong to get up so late

Thank goodness I still feel great

Daylight savings made change

Our hours rearranged

Sleeping in just might be our fate!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

It was wrong to eat all of the cake

My friends for my birthday did make

I know I’m a glutton

But I burst my top button,

On best dress – for goodness sake!

Paul Mastaglio:

Something’s not right

But the answer is just out of sight

Something feels wrong

In fact, there’s a bit of a pong

Brace yourself and hold that nose tight!

Trent’s World:

I am having a very strange day

I think it started the wrong way

I dressed an hour

Before my shower

So in wet clothes I join the fray.

The Hidden Edge:

Our dear friend Whale, comes from Hong Kong,

Likes a karaoke sing song,

When his brain is a mess,

It helps sort out his stress,

Then, nothing in life seems that wrong!

Lance Greenfield:

Said Ernie to Eric, “Here’s a play what I wrote.”

Said Eric to Ernie, “Don’t gloat.

Your grammar’s all wrong

But it’ll do for a song.

In the Euros it’ll get plenty of votes.”

Captain Tom, who was seldom wrong.

Taught me to sing some very rude songs.

But ‘Eskimo Nell’

Stretched me so well.

A great ballad . . . but EVER so long!

Linking People 2003:

Right or wrong is determined by circumstances,

An act in itself is not wrong or right needs acceptances.

Wrong normal dose for thin patient,

Can turn out to be right due to spillage if impatient,

Two wrongs, indeed at times can turn out to be right reflectances!

Chel Owens:

There was a young woman named Wong –

An Aussie, who hated Mah-jong;

Was redhead, and crude;

Disliked Chinese food;

‘Perhaps,’ thought Ms. Wong, ‘I’m all wrong.’

Zelda Rene:

It almost seems a comic song

“I’m wrong, I’m wrong, you’re right, I’m wrong”

But surely it can’t always be

The mere idea is far too silly

You’ve failed to persuade me…all night long.

Valerie Fish:

I thought there was something throng

Finding hubby dressed in a thong

On the kitchen table

With my best friend Mabel

Playing anything but ping-pong.

And here’s Sharon Tingle‘s brain limerick:

Neanderthal: one with a brain that trumps all

Being capable of committing far more than just a wrong call.

Yet the brain being a recorder

Records both good and bad in chronological order

But spews out only bad for the cloddish, moronic Mr. Square Ball.

    I never wrote a limerick. English is not my first language.
    So I tried. Probably failed miserably.
    Here you go!

    Does this suit suit your needs?
    Do friends like it when you meet?
    Does this need suit your suit ?
    Or does it make you look a brute?
    Just take it off before we eat!

  2. I thought it would be quite a hoot
    To go shopping in my birthday suit
    It started quite well
    Till the moment I fell –
    Crushed my nuts and bruised my soft fruit.

  3. Here is a limerick for the prompt: SUIT.

    There was a man who wore a brown suit, With green stripes, just like a newt. All of the time, while in his gear, His wife stroked him when she was near. She thought he looked so cuddly and cute.

    The stag night was simply a hoot
    The groom to be, pissed as a newt
    Was found at daybreak
    Tied to a stake
    Wearing nowt but his birthday suit

  5. I went out to buy a new suit
    lime green, the colour of fruit
    But I spilt my red wine
    On that garment of mine…
    Ruined what had cost lots of loot!

  6. Kim Smyth says:

    There once was a chap with a suit
    His lady did think he was cute
    All dressed up
    For the concert, you know
    He’s the one playing the flute!

    “A poem about clothing,” I read
    Writing shirts and ties would lose my cred!
    “If you want to play
    Do it my way”
    “Suit yourself,” I said

    OUTER clothes worn together of same fabric, a suit, jacket and trousers or skirt,

    Hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs make a suit for card players, who flirt!

    Dresses suit her giving elegant look but he filed suit against her at a time didn’t suit her,

    Police chargesheeted the suit filing person for his slur,

    Blue short skirts do suit her indeed but he flung upon her dirt!

  10. My mate Matt had quite an obsession,
    When hosting a networking session,
    He’d wear a pink suit
    With short-shorts to boot,
    To much make a good first impression!

  11. Paul Mastaglio says:

    I’m off in hot pursuit
    To find something that rhymes with suit
    But my quest
    Hasn’t been the best
    So I’ll go and have some fruit. (Probably a banana – like them)

    Cheers Paul 😁

  12. Ritu says:

    My dear, your point is moot
    And I really don’t give a hoot
    You may not care
    But I can’t stand the stares
    You’re going nowhere in your birthday suit!

  13. She starred in a series called ‘Suits’,
    Fell in love with a prince in big boots.
    Soon after they met,
    In a castle they wed.
    Sun snappers were there for the shoot.

  14. My mother thinks me quite cute,
    When I’m dolled up in my best suit.
    But within half an hour,
    I’m covered in flour.
    Amidst pastry, custard and fruit.

  15. Lenny so fancied his tutor,
    He wished he could be her life suitor.
    He gave her a rose
    And then he proposed.
    “Top marks for your try. On your scooter!”

  18. You always invite us to submit a limerick of our own rather than to follow the prompt, so here goes…

    Ship Stuck in Suez – news headline

    I entered your tight, narrow passage
    In my ship far too big to manage.
    Now I’m blocking the way
    And I can but pray.
    For to sail back out will take courage!

    The man in the lavendar suit
    Always gave the good girls a hoot
    One day at the wheel
    He did have a feel
    And then they gave him the boot!

  21. Joy Smith says:

    Carmen Miranda with her hat full of fruit
    Would never be seen dead in a suit
    All bananas or melon
    Or a whole row of lemon
    Wins the jackpot, and oodles of loot!
