Laughing Along With A Limerick

Your new limerick challenge is as follows:


Your challenge last week was to write a limerick using the word TROUBLE in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Keith Edgar Channing:

Now James Watt is added to Hubble
We can soon spot the first signs of trouble.
Should aliens attack
We’ll push them right back
Using Reagan’s star wars at the double!

Christine Mallband-Brown:

Trouble comes every day and night
When monsters and vampires fight
At dawn and evening
Their shifts they are leaving
Arguments happen in crepuscular light!

Kim Smyth:

There once was a chick who was trouble
She ran from the law on the double
If she’d just get right
And stop trying to fight
Her life wouldn’t be such a puzzle!


His love life was in dreadful trouble
When patches of the spikiest stubble
Dislodged her vajazzle
Caused her tassels to frazzle
And burst one fake boob like a bubble.

Lance Greenfield:

Bony Tony liked to down pints of Ruddles.
Three or four made him get quite befuddled.
It wouldn’t be long
Before he’d be singing rude songs.
Then he’d streak down the street and make trouble.

Val Fish:

Temptation’s a terrible sin
I can’t let that old devil win
I must try harder
To curb my ardour
The trouble I’ve got myself in!

Ruth Scribbles:

There once was a man in big trouble
He ran out – his face full of stubble
My internet is dust
You cut it- it’s busted
Now all that is left is this rubble*

*Are those bones I see?

Linking People 2003:

Embrace trouble, it provides experience,
But, be ready to accept the worst experience;
Before the future becomes the present,
God provides 86,400 data everyday in seconds in the present,
Use it or loose it but do gain everyday experience!

  1. When I was a teen and bored stiff
    How could I resist a Wills’ Whiff?
    I thought they were strong,
    Found out I was wrong;
    For goodness’ sake, roll me a spliff!

    In imagined galaxies far (far) away,
    A bold captain kept th’ aliens at bay.
    If they caught a whiff
    Of smart Spaceman Spiff
    They’d cower! -till Calvin would wake.

  3. She once got a whiff of near death
    When she got close and smelled his bad breath
    She thought she would die
    Yet didn’t bat an eye
    When she said brush or live with Macbeth

  4. When Bony Tony went to sea,
    His face turned as green as a pea.
    The rocking of our skiff
    And that bad saline whiff
    Put Tony right off our delicious tea.

    When he got a whiff of her scent
    He was moved to lament
    Back in the day
    I’d have had my way
    But now my feet are slow like cement!

  6. The new perfumes out, what a whiff!
    I took a really big sniff
    Then coughed and spluttered
    And disgustedly muttered
    ‘that’s rank, like a skunk, what a niff’!

  8. I just stumbled upon this challenge. Not sure if this is what you’re looking for, but here it goes.

    Luella’s Fella

    There once was a girl named Luella
    Who had her eye on a mighty nice fella
    But her hygiene was bad
    A single whiff made him sad,
    He just could not stand her smella.”

    She was determined to win him over
    So in the bath, she poured crimson and clover
    Then she jumped in the tub
    And with soap she did scrub
    Thinking soon he would be her lover.

    With shampoo she did take such great care
    To wash out all the spiders from her hair
    They had made a nest from her locks
    And mice had eaten her frock
    She had not a new one to spare.

    She donned the best dress she could find
    With her beau always in mind
    Once she was clean
    She did primp and preen
    Even powdering up her behind.

    But alas, he found another
    Luella thought she’d surely smother
    There were tears in her eyes
    As they said their good-byes
    But she settled for his younger brother.

    I’m getting worse…

    ‘It wasn’t the smell,’ said Belle, a bit sniffy.
    ‘He’s always inclined to be a bit whiffy.’
    ‘I realised he’d died,’
    ‘When, to my surprise,’
    ‘I found he’d developed a st*ffy.’

    A soft breeze came out of nowhere
    There was something strange in the air
    But a whiff of Youth Dew
    Told me it was you
    Blowing kisses from way up there

    WHY👃nose is positioned near 👄 mouth?
    Whiff ensures the rightful stuff for both!
    Dogs 🐕 smell 100,000 times more than man,
    First sense to evolve, even bacteria 🦠 can!
    Snakes 🐍 use tongue 👅 to smell broth!

    क्यों नाक 👃 मुँह 👄 के पास स्थित है?
    महक सही पदार्थ सुनिश्चित करता है!
    कुत्ते इंसान से एक लाख गुना ज्यादा सूंघते हैं,
    विकसित हुई पहली भावना, बैक्टीरिया भी सूंघते हैं!
    सांप जीभ का प्रयोग कर सूंघता है ।
