Laughing Along With A Limerick

Here’s to a great week! Your new limerick challenge is as follows:


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

Keith Edgar Channing:

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!

Chel Owens:

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.

(From the Calvin and Hobbes comics.)

Christine Mallband-Brown:

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!’

Kim Smyth:

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!


‘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.’

Lance Greenfield:

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.

Ruth Scribbles:

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.

Val Fish:

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.

Linking People 2013:

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!

And welcome to Kaye Lynne Booth, with all these fabulous limericks:

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.

  1. The squire went down to his study
    To meet with his favourite buddy
    They proceeded to read
    Books about chicken feed
    To stop it from getting all muddy

  2. she said “if only you’d have studied”
    but she didn’t understand muddy
    Mud pies vs
    Dotting I’s
    I’d rather not study and be grubby

  3. “Study hard and have lots of fun!”
    Is what Bony Tony told his son,
    Who loved to write
    And pillow-fight,
    But, most of all, he loved to run.

    Study real hard, and you’ll go far
    Is what my dad said to me
    So I’m doing Spanish
    To learn a new language
    Soon, look how fluent I’ll be!

  5. Study well, may old grandfather said,
    Try to cram more facts into your head.
    Use what you’ve been given,
    Don’t fear being driven,
    You’ll achieve much before you are dead.

    After years of study, wise men opined
    There was no proof that God was benign.
    ‘It would have been easy,’ those boffins said,
    ‘To put the arguments completely to bed,
    By showing how to turn water to wine.’

  10. I must admit that I can’t work, research, study or write with any distractions like TV or even classical music. When I work, I work and its focused on one thing only. Nice limericks.
