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 POOL in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Kim Smyth:

We own both pool table and pool
In the summer they’re both really cool
But when the cold comes
We’re just down to one
Should’ve invested in a heated swimming pool!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

A pool table on a pool is odd!
But there it floated on its tod
It seemed unattended?
But suddenly, that ended
As the black was potted by a Cod!

Val Fish:

Oh boy did Bean feel a fool
Losing his trunks in the pool
With nowhere to hide
He swallowed his pride,
Surfaced clutching his tiny tool.


Buff Sixpack knew he was cool
As he posed in the gym and the pool;
He thought his hot bod
Would make girls think him god;
Instead all they saw was a tool.

Ruth Scribbles:

I once dreamed I wanted a pool
The thought, it did cause me to drool
I searched on the net
I’ve not found one yet
Instead, I purchased a stool.

Lance Greenfield:

Tony took me to Giilingham pool.
It was freezing, yet he said it was cool.
He threw me straight in
And I learned to swim
With no need for lessons at school.

  1. In space you can see captain Jim
    Exercising in the Enterprise Gym
    But look at this scene
    You can’t hear him scream!
    No sound in a vacuum, poor him!

  2. Kim Smyth says:

    There once was a man with a gym
    Who dreamed all of his friends could be slim
    His friends and folks came
    But their willpower was lame
    So he lost everything on his whim.

  3. Last time that I entered a gym
    I signed in with a fresh anonym
    If I had my druthers
    I’d go with my brothers
    Cos the pain that I felt was quite Grimm

  4. Last week’s limericks.
    As usual, Geoff (Tangental) comes up with a good one [for ‘POOL’]
    Even better, no effort required this week as he could repeat the same verse for GYM.

  5. Bony took me to the gym.
    He also took my sister, Kim.
    We tried. We cried.
    We damn near died.
    The end result? We’re very slim!

  6. In a quest to be pretty and trim
    My last wife enrolled at the gym
    Her training instructor
    Became her seductor
    Now she trains every night, just with him

    I want it noted that I resisted the temptation to use a phrase rhyming with ‘instructor’ to describe the nature of the exercise.

    Gym Nastic found that working out,
    Left him tired with a permanent pout.
    His hopes of love, barely a glimmer,
    Became as naught, as he became slimmer
    With perfect abs and the face of a trout.

  8. Well — here ya go — groan

    There once was a man at the gym
    Who wanted to learn how to swim
    And just like a fool
    He jumped in the pool
    The fool in the pool was slim Jim
