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 FLOOR in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Keith Channing:

Floor should be swept, someone said,
Look at all those crumbs of bread.
Oh, give it a rest
Or beat on your chest
Remind me again when I’m dead!

Trent’s World:

My head was pounding and to my dismay
I woke up on the floor today
Wasn’t sure where
Last night’s a blur
A pint or two too many, I’d say.

Little Amy started to cry
Milk on the floor, she thought she’d die
“Lift up your head,”
Mother said,
“And dry that teary eye.”

Ruth Scribbles:

I once found myself on the floor
I couldn’t just crawl to the door
with a loud shout for help
that was more like a yelp
I conked out and started to snore.

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

The floor of Parliament is a brutal place.
MPs can speak with very ill grace.
They vote for new laws
With only a pause
To draw breath in that awful space.

Lance Greenfield:

First onto the floor and last to leave,
Bony Tony could certainly duck and weave.
His son, young Lance,
Also loved to dance.
They’d carve great moves like you wouldn’t believe.

    There once was a kid who was so mean
    He spray painted his kid brother green
    His mom shrieked in fright
    Upon the first sight
    And said some words quite obscene!

    Mike was a guy who was very mean
    Whose IQ was below the mean
    Not just cruel
    But also a fool
    Do you know what I mean?
    Can I rhyme the same word if they are different words? 😉
    The mean girls didn’t like Sue
    They never knew what to do
    Whatever they tried
    Won for her side
    Making her happy and them blue

  3. Please don’t call me average; I’m mean,
    And although you may think it obscene
    Or at least controversial
    In matters inertial
    My moment was quite Damascene.

  4. I just don’t get statistics
    Or understand mathematics!
    What does algebra mean
    For those, inumerate being
    Who find two and two fantastic!

    Last night we tried nouvelle cuisine
    But oh boy, were the portions mean
    A hundred quid
    For three rings of squid
    And the limpest lettuce ever seen

  6. there once was a man who was mean
    he stank and his teeth turned real green
    he jumped in a pool
    and started to drool
    his teeth, they almost came clean

  7. Bony Tony just LOVED green beans.
    He’d eaten them raw since his early teens.
    Very good for his heart,
    But they made him fart,
    Meaning you could always tell where Tony had been.

    Norman Concrete possessed a talking spleen
    Whose patter was clever rather than clean.
    He answered Mark, a bit of a joker,
    Who accused our hero of being mediocre:
    ‘I may be average, but at least I’m not mean.’

    MODERATION is mean of excess and nothing,
    Arithmetic mean is about number plaything.
    But, means for life is for survival and swallow,
    Take care of the means, end will follow.
    Mean person can change into kind and loving!

    मॉडरेशन अधिकता और कुछ भी नहीं का औसत,
    अंकगणित में माध्य संख्या होते हैं औसत ।
    लेकिन, जीवन अस्तित्व के लिए साधन,
    साधनों का ध्यान रखें, भरपूर होंगे घन।
    मतलबी व्यक्ति बने दयालु और प्रेमी सत प्रतिशत।
