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 GYM in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Kim Smyth:

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.

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

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!

Keith Edgar Channing:

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.

Richmond Road:

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.


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.

Ruth Scribbles:

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.

Lance Greenfield:

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!

  1. Kim Smyth says:

    A man from Polk told a joke
    About an old pig in a poke
    A girl was offended
    Thus his routine then was ended
    His career as a comedian up in smoke!

  2. ‘Twas a nightmare, a terrible fright
    Count Dracula was taking a bite
    But then I awoke
    It was hubby’s sick joke
    He slept downstairs the rest of the night.

  3. When the leader got up and spoke
    Some listeners thought it was a joke
    But its not true
    He was in a stew
    Then they realised and had to mope

    As an elderly, colourless bloke
    I’ve become a bit of a joke;
    But since I’ve found my lost youth,
    Wrapped up in its own truth
    I’m mindful and just a tad woke.

  5. Bony Tony often spoke
    Of goblins, fairies and funny folk.
    But then I found
    That the world is round,
    And, to him, it was all a big joke!

  7. There once was an egg with two yolks
    “Am I dreaming? Please give me a poke.”
    The bump on my head
    Made me dizzy instead
    The yolk was on me, no joke!
