Laughing Along With A Limerick

Happy Monday! I hope you have a great week. Here’s your new word:


Your challenge last week was to write a limerick using the word SCORE in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Keith Channing:

I tried counting up to a score
So – eighteen and maybe two more.
The agony lingers,
No more toes or fingers –
Just thumbs – maybe that’s what they’re for.


When young, it’s not done to keep score
And if you tell how it went, you’re a bore.
But with each passing year
You’re just grateful to hear
Something nearer a moan than a snore.


I hate having to keep score
It is really rather a bore
Why not admit
That I’m right, that’s it.
There’s really no need to act sore!

The Hidden Edge:

New Year; “time for a change”, thought Zack,
From the threat of his own blackjack.
He struck that voice imp
That sends his flair limp –
Getting his genius back on track!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

When I play a game of ‘encore’
I don’t like to lose, I’m a bore.
So I’d rather cheat
Than let someone beat
Me. So that’s why I always keep score!

Lance Greenfield:

John Williams wrote many film scores.
Movie directors would always ask him for more.
Many Oscars he won,
And he always had fun.
Durrh duh, durrh duh went his theme tune for Jaws.

Bony Tony was never a bore.
Statistics he knew by the score.
Tell him a fact
And he’d answer back
With much more than you knew, that’s for sure.

Kim Smyth:

I once had to settle a score
Kicked him out and locked the door
The governor banned him
His things, my dad tossed them
It was plain he was welcome no more!

Trent’s World:

I need to get back to my music soon
I have tried to score a Broadway tune
But on my piano trusty
I find I am quite rusty
And I end up sounding like a loon.

There once was a fellow named Dan
Who thought he was quite the lady’s man
But he was so 1954
There was no way he could score
Of his misogyny nobody’s a fan.

Ruth Scribbles:

The game it was quite a big bore
And then when they posted the score
The crowd did moan
With a great big groan
The teams ran away through the door.

The Hidden Edge:

Black belt, Joel will often trip
Right over his big, bottom lip,
He always keep score
And often gets sore –
If his foe, he can not outstrip!

Linking People 2003:

Score is generally about twenty written,
Spelling of twelfth is generally forgotten,
Even though score in spelling test is great!
Score of years ends teenage mate,
Life music gets scored for adulthood in Britain!

  1. Kiss me, she said with a pout
    Her lips almost turned inside-out.
    I slipped and I fell,
    Let out a great yell;
    Life’s just not the same with the gout!

    There was a girl named Missy-Sue
    Who had a heart never quite true
    She kissed each boy
    To bring them them joy
    Until she left them for someone new
    A kiss was thought the greatest seal
    To the leader and his deal
    For if you’d break it
    They wouldn’t fake it
    And his wrath you’d surely feel

  3. Grandmother gave baby a kiss
    Who suddenly started to hiss!
    She needs a clean diaper
    Said granny, I’ll wipe her
    She’ll soon be as clean as her Sis!

  4. Chel Owens says:

    A young gal, by the name of Old Miss,
    Thought, ‘Why did my mum name me this?’
    The opposite sex
    Won’t send me a text;
    I’ll be dead whilst I wait for a kiss.

  5. Bony Tony often played snooker
    Even with a painful verruca.
    He could kiss off the pink
    Sink black with a dink,
    Besides being a jolly good looker.

    “I love your caresses; that’s clear.
    But, where will you kiss me, my Dear?”
    She held on to me tight
    As she squealed with delight,
    When I told her, and showed her, “Right here!”

    At the school for trainee actresses
    Sarah is taught to dispense kisses
    She thinks, ‘it’s a cinch,’
    But in her first clinch,
    She aims at his lips and then misses.

    ‘You don’t need the wisdom of Homer,’
    said Mark, a wise lad from Cromer,
    ‘To know that a kiss will
    make her feel blissful,
    as well as bring her out of a coma.’

  7. Kim Smyth says:

    There seemed to be something amiss
    For I’d yet to receive my nightly kiss
    His mood hard been dark
    Ever since we left the park
    What’s happened to the happy days of bliss?

    HAD a kiss with death, no steal,
    Audaciously kissing while on wheel!
    Oxytocin, love hormone, releases while kissing,
    From master gland, the pituitary, not missing,
    Arousing with neurohumoral toning, intact seal!

    मौत के साथ एक चुंबन था, कोई चोरी नहीं,
    दुस्साहस से पहिए पर चूमना, आसान नहीं।
    ऑक्सीटोसिन, लव हार्मोन, चुंबन के दौरान रिलीज होता है,
    मास्टर ग्रंथि, पिट्यूटरी, से रिलीज होता है।
    नेरोहूमोरल टोनिंग के साथ उत्तेजना, कोई चोरी नहीं।

  10. Chaz is a guy who’s really rock hard;
    He is big, beefy; and a tad scarred,
    A kiss on the lips
    Is better than chips –
    And … costs less than a Valentine’s card.
