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 CHIP in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:
I met an old schoolmate called Chip
Who needed a replacement hip.
He’d changed both his knees
With relative ease
But cried when they gave him the snip!
I once had a neighbor named Chip
Whose backyard looks like a skip*
I told him it stunk
He then moved some junk
And now I’m ignored, -what the flip?
*A skip is a large open-topped waste container.
There once was a fellow named Chip
His wife, Joann, thought him flip
He loved doing demo
She thinks he’s nuts
So often she gives him the slip!
Chocolate chip cookies are tasty
But eating them? I can be hasty!
A grabbed a bug bunch
And gave them a munch
Now my teeth hurt, and my face? Pasty!
Bob was a big grudge holder
Who had a giant chip on his shoulder
To his regret
He couldn’t forget
Which made him feel 10 degrees colder.
We’ve pretzels and a variety of chips
Some salsas and some spicy dips
To go with your beer
Ambrosia to parched lips!
Bony Tony wore odd socks.
I did the same, which was a bit of a shock.
People would stare
But we didn’t care.
After all, I was a chip off his block.
Linking People 2003:
Taiwan prospered by manufacturing micro chip,
For mobiles, credit, debit card, what not, including ship,
On a small island not acceptable as a country,
By the United Nation, all and sundry,
But as a province of China though US gripping without a slip!
