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 BOIL in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Keith Channing:

Popeye’s special friend, Olive Oyl,
Developed a massive great boil
Like one of her toes
Had grown from her nose;
It even made Bluto recoil!

Ruth Scribbles:

He’s angry and like a gargoyle
He sits there and fumes
Without eating his legumes
He’d rather they rot and just spoil.

Kim Smyth:

There once was a man with a boil
Caused by hours of toil
He lanced the darn thing
Which caused such a sting!
Then, on his pillows he did coil!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

I put three eggs on to boil
And with heat the water did roil
Two slices of toast
Best butter to boast
But napkins made out of tin foil?!

My finger had a huge great boil
From gardening, caused by the soil
I started to weep
As it began to seep
To heal it? That was a long toil!

Trent’s World:

Our recession menu is a fright
Boiled cabbage, every night!
Nary a sweet
Nor any meat
A forced diet when money is tight.

Lance Greenfield:

“Lance that boil!” the doctor said.
Responded I, “Go boil your head!”
“T’won’t hurt,” lied she,
As she stabbed with glee.
It made me cry! My tears were shed.


Trainee nurse Christopher Tick
Was as mustard keen as he was thick.
When told to prick Colin Doyle’s
Large and aggressive buttock boil,
He, instead, heated water and boiled his…

    🤣I always love your memes!

    There once was a gal with a house
    Too small for even a mouse
    A miniature it was
    She loved it because
    It was decorated by her loving spouse!

  2. How frequently must I explain
    Only ducks should be out in the rain?
    Unless I can see
    Something in it for me
    Expect not to see me again!

  3. Hotels serve me well on vacation
    Or a guest house quite close to the station
    Unless I can scamper
    Somewhere in my camper
    Escape is my best expectation.

  4. I once had a house in Cornwall
    Which got covered in a snowfall
    We dug it out twice
    It got infested with mice
    So now I’ve bought one in Porthcawl!

  5. There once was a haunted old house
    Which was covered with vines and some grouse
    Said my partner to me
    Why can’t you see
    This place is infested with louse

    Now, I’m not one to grumble and grouse
    But, have you seen the state of my house?
    The place is a mess
    Though I have to confess
    I tend to just blame kids and spouse! 😳😜

    Her indoors does nothing but grouse,
    Can’t wait to get out of the house.
    Into another’s arms
    And her comely charms
    Worlds away from my nagging spouse!
