Laughing Along With A Limerick

Here’s to a great new week! Your new limerick challenge is as follows:


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

Keith Channing:

I’ve a serious disclosure to make:
I’ve lived my whole life as a fake.
Approached number ten
To fess up, but then
When I told him my plight, he said, “Shake!”

Christine Mallaband-brown:

Every day my left arm does shake
A real nuisance it does make
I dither and pause
With unknown cause
Wonder what diagnosis they’ll make?

The Hidden Edge:

Robbie struggled hard with his weight,
Ate loads of pastries and beefsteak,
His tum was rotund
His body was shunned –
Milkshake was the biggest mistake!

Trent’s World:

Let’s shake, rattle and roll, my friend
We have some festivities to attend
We’ll have some fun
Till we see the sun
For this party will never end.

Kim Smyth:

I once made myself a nice shake
Several ingredients to make
Including some chocolate
Maca and nut butter
A tasty beverage it did make!

Ruth Scribbles:

There once was a chicken named Shake,
Who asked, well now, what should we bake?
I went in the store
And came out the door
With the mix that was named shake and bake.

P.S. The chicken was not amused.

Val Fish:

Oh, how the earth moved for me last night
But it wasn’t quite in delight
A horrendous shake
Jolted me awake
And had me quaking with fright.

Alsu Remi:

There was a young baker from Swindon
Who sold only cakes with no cream on.
He’d start with a shake
Every time that he baked –
With no clue why his profits had dwindled.

Lance Greenfield:

Bony Tony was ever so fond
Of a fictional spy called James Bond
Who liked girls in bikinis
And cocktail martinis:
Shaken not stirred, tout le monde!

Jocelyn Barker:

She saw it and started to shake
The viper’s a dangerous snake
To flee from the adder
She shot up a ladder
Then saw it was only a fake.

    I loved all last weeks entries, and your meme for today!!

    Becky was a wandering sort
    Her trips she wouldn’t abort
    The adventures she had
    Made her life so glad
    No longer imagined in a fort!

  2. Sort yourself out she said
    To the man she was going to wed
    Unless you improve
    And your faults remove
    You can forget our romance instead

  3. She claimed she would take me to court
    If her project I purposed to thwart
    I said if she knew me
    She never would sue me
    Accepting I’m just not her sort.

    “I sort of,” I said without skill
    “Don’t want to partake in the Limerick drill”
    It is a pain
    Fuses the brain
    And some neurons it may kill!
    Oh, wait a second. Too late I guess 😉

  5. Accused once of being loquacious,
    A claim I considered audacious,
    I gave the retort
    That you’re of the sort
    Who frequently are most ungracious.

  6. Bony Tony was a professor of data.
    In Spain, he’d sort them and get paid in pesetas.
    Once he’d collected his fees,
    He’d ask for some cheese
    To melt over his hot baked potatoes.

    If you aspire to be ‘the right sort’
    There are lessons that cannot be taught:
    Use the correct diction
    Lie with conviction
    And, above all, never get caught…

    *One sort …*

    This man is the sort I abhor A man with a terrible flaw While thousands are dying He’s lying and lying And lying and lying some more.

    *Or another …*

    This man is the sort I adore A man with a heart, and what’s more He’s terribly funny Not tight with his money – I’m hoping he’ll move in next door! 😊

  9. Chaz is a marine of true sort,
    With a girl in every port,
    His harem he loved,
    But they pushed and shoved –
    So often his plans they would thwart!

    I’ve decided to sort out my life
    And find myself a lovely new wife
    Cos one two and three
    Were no good for me
    They were far too much trouble and strife
