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 FELL in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Keith Edgar Channing:

Before to penury I fell
My life had been going quite well
Until my better half
At my efforts did laugh
And now she is a pauper as well!

Trent’s World:

Bob fell while taking a hike
Then got run over by a mountain bike
You’d think he’d know
Never to go
To places his ex said he’d like.

Timmy fell down a deep well
Lassie ran home to tell
Seeing the dog lope
They grabbed some rope
For they knew their son very well.

Val Fish:

For his magical charms I fell
He had me under his spell
Till I got wise
To all his lies
And told him to go to hell.

Kim Smyth:

A woman fell into a well
After experiencing a bad dizzy spell
She survived the long fall
Then was rescued by all
And now has a story to tell!


At his first appraisal, long after he fell
Lucifer stood before the Hounds of Hell:
‘How am I doing, throw me a bone,
A bit more fire, a smidge of brimstone?’
And Cerberus slathered: ‘It’s to early to tell…’

Lance Greenfield:

Bony Tony would often tell
The epic story of Eskimo Nell.
He loved the rhyme,
Until came his time.
No more reciting. Alas, he fell.

  1. As the time nears for jumpers and sweaters,
    We should think of our elders and betters.
    A bench near the church
    Is a fine place to perch
    (And at least it has more than five letters!)

  2. They went to marry in the church
    After meeting on a Internet search
    But things went odd ’cause
    The groom drank vodkas!
    Causing him, down the aisle, to lurch!

  3. The church is where you meet your God
    With delight, not a smile and a nod,
    Yet so many look sad
    As if life is so bad.
    Doesn’t that seem to you rather odd?

    Sid said crime does pay
    Robbed and killed hundreds, they say
    But tell him he’s bad
    And he’ll get real mad
    For he goes to church every Sunday!

  5. There was a vicar named Mell
    everyone knew him so well
    he was icy and stern
    commanded listen and learn
    or I’ll send you all to hell

  6. Not really funny. Combined this one and blind and fell.

    There once was a man in church
    Who bumped on the pew with a lurch
    He almost fell down
    He sat and frowned
    “He’s drunk, no he’s blind” and they smirched

    As the church bells rang out for my John
    I played the grieving widow with aplomb
    But deep down in my heart
    I was itching to start
    A new life now the sad bastard’s gone !

    When an ascetic churchwarden, called Bunt
    Found out what they’d done to his punt
    Which was covered in baubles
    He said, ‘Bless my corbels;
    Whoever did this must be some sort of an artist.’
