Laughing Along With A Limerick

I hope you’re all having a wonderful Christmas. Here’s to a great week! Your new limerick challenge is as follows:

SPROUT

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

Keith Edgar Channing:

Whilst talking to my chiropractor

I asked “Why can’t I be an actor?”

With fans near and far

I’d soon be a star.

Failing that, I can still drive a tractor.

Trent’s World:

Paul played a pretty mean guitar

And wanted to be a rock-n-roll star

He practiced all day

In the end it should pay

But it’s been a struggle so far.

A star graced the top of the page

Making me feel quite the sage

But it was work, not school

So I was a fool

My boss told me to act my age.

I put a star atop the tree

Glowing for all to see

it was the first tree I found

In the middle of town

Now the police are looking for me.

Christine Mallband-Brown:

A Christmas star on high

Far up in a deep blue sky

It’s light shines below

With a wonderful glow

then suddenly, a baby’s first cry.

Kim Smyth:

Once I dreamed of being a star

And then I flung myself afar

I got sidetracked

Then love attacked

Now I’m just who I are!

Ruth Scribbles:

She wanted to be a big star

She wouldn’t have to go very far

She got mom’s permission

And entered the audition

Dressed in lights she stood on the bar.

Lance Greenfield:

Vince spattered dark canvas with white.

And, suddenly, he saw the light.

We know the result,

‘Tis art we exult.

Van Gogh’s Starry Starry Night.

Linking People 2003:

Star twinkles, not the planet, right?

Twinkling is due to refraction of light,

Through different density layers of air!

Each day is starred by powerful Sun, fair?

Sky is lit with silver moon and stars at night!

  1. How will you get your plants to sprout?
    There’s frost and snow and ice about.
    I’ll put them in a heated shed
    Make quite sure that they are fed
    To grow big Sprouts and that’s no doubt!

    She waited for her plant sprout
    “Oh, when will it ever pop out?”
    But nothing is done,
    Or in one minute won,
    After two she discharged her pout.

    Happy New Year, Esther. 🙂

    There once was a girl named “Sprout”
    Because she was short and stout
    But then she grew up
    Into a willowy pup
    And Dad won’t dare let her go out!

    I don’t know what she’s talking about
    “Sow they seeds and they will sprout”
    I tossed some here
    I threw some there
    And not a one came out

  5. Chel Owens says:

    Once, an old man from Leeds
    Said he only would ever ‘grow’ weeds.
    He hated all sprouts,
    Reeds, leaves; sauerkraut.
    In short, he just hated his greens.

  6. I wanted that baby to sprout
    He did, and he started going out
    He quickly learned words
    Not uttered by birds
    He’s a puzzle, of that, there’s no doubt

  7. A well-to-do farmer from Brussels
    Had two little doggies – Jack Russells;
    After they’d eaten sprouts
    He knew their whereabouts
    By the fragrance from their bottom muscles.

  8. Raw sprouts are Bony Tony’s thing.
    They’re crunchy and peppery and full of zing.
    But boiled, they’re mushy
    And smelly and yeuchy,
    And, for Tony, they’re only fit for the bin.

    When choosing explosives, one stands out a mile
    Though it’s never found in any missile.
    While gunpowder, plastics are in with a shout
    Nothing quite beats the humblest sprout
    Which combined with my gut is truly fissile.
