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 SANTA in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Keith Edgar Channing:

Santa’ll be coming quite soon
At night, by the light of the moon.
Now kids, don’t be surly
To bed bright and early
And don’t wake up till afternoon!

Christine Mallband-Brown:

The supermarket Santa guy
Told the kids that he could fly
With reindeer and sleigh
They’d be up and away!
On Christmas night into the sky!

Trent’s World:

Tom was a very naughty boy
Who had a penchant to annoy
To see who’s nice
Santa checked thrice
And Tom didn’t get his toy.

They say Santa’s a spy
And works for the FBI
Without any tact
He knows how you act
Kind of creepy, oh my!

A flaming party Bob hosted
When Christmas came, they all toasted
Down the chimney Santa came
To be met by a giant flame
And the poor elf got roasted.

Kim Smyth:

A dude named Santa came to town
He turned the kids’ frowns upside-down
He told them, “Be nice,
Or I’ll have to think twice,
About whose chimney I’m coming round!”

Lance Greenfield:

I always thought Santa was phoney,
‘Cos he looked very like Bony Tony.
So, I wrote him a letter,
And what proof could be better,
Than when he brought me My Little Pony?

Ruth Scribbles:

Her mother just said to be nice
So Santa won’t fetch you some mice
She tried to be good
And lived like she should
But ended with her hair full of lice.

Val Fish:

Postal strikes will cause great delay
On the run up to Christmas Day
But don’t fear girls and boys
You’ll still get your toys
‘Cos Santa delivers by sleigh!


Elle Fish, the head trainer for Santa
Taught his reindeer to trot and to canter.
When asked why she stayed,
Being so underpaid
Said, “They’re dears, with the best line in banter.”

Linking People 2003:

SANTA, moniker of Saint Nicholas, a generous man to kids,
Nick’s Dutch name, Sinter Klaas, patron saint of kids,
Saint of kids, Father Christmas, Kriss Kringle, SantaClaus,
Latin Sancta, meaning “holy”, a variant of Sandra Claus!
Gift giving, a custom culminating into Boxing Day for kids!

  1. Snow is here at last
    And it is falling fast
    Over the high hills
    Which gives you thrills
    And memories of the past.

  2. Or

    The cat was out in the snow
    The wind was starting to blow
    She went to the door
    And pushed with her paw
    Through the catflap into the warm glow

  3. Kim Smyth says:

    The snow is falling out west
    As I’m enjoying my rest
    I’d rather view from inside
    The berth I give it is wide
    A picture of it’s really the best.

  4. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
    They sang as Santa blew his big nose
    The reindeer did play
    On that fateful day
    When Santa tripped and broke his big toe

  5. A colleague that I used to know,
    Like Jon, had the surname of Snow.
    Treble, bass and descant,
    Every Yuletide we’d chant
    Derek Snow, Derek Snow, Derek Snow.

  7. The weather forecast was very bad
    And Bony Tony was far from glad.
    Warmth and sun
    Would ruin his fun.
    His snowman would melt, which made him sad.

  8. Why is it the first fall of snow
    Turns Great Britain into ‘no go’?
    And as for the train
    Drivers striking (again!)
    But Merry Christmas folks, heigh ho…
