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 JOKE in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Kim Smyth:

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!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

When the leader got up and spoke
Some listeners thought it was a joke
But it’s 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.

Ruth Scribbles:

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!

Lance Greenfield:

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!

Val Fish:

‘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.

    To me, it’s neither here, nor there
    Whether people feel the need to swear.
    They can call me poltroon
    Or odious buffoon
    And I’ll barely turn the odd hair.

    When young, with nary a care
    I had little need to swear.
    But as I developed some pluck
    I let go the odd darn
    As rhyming was truly overrated.

    I swear although the rain has just started
    Summer and I don’t want to be parted
    So early in the year
    For fall to be near
    Can it be that the season has started?

  3. I swear fealty to the new king
    Said the Knight as he started to swing
    His magical sword
    But it caught on a board
    Now his arms in a mythical sling!

  4. Sometimes I am just not aware
    When I reach for the good book and swear
    Every word is a fact,
    And the few I retract
    Relate to our clandestine affair.

  5. My muse wasn’t very helpful today!

    I swear, I swear, I swear, I swear
    How dare you even try to go there
    You gave me your word
    But you are a turd
    Why did you tell that I fell off the chair
