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 SALE in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Keith Edgar Channing:

I went to the January sales,
I followed the M4 from Wales.
A nice day it was not,
You know what I got?
A sequence of near-epic fails!

Annette Rochelle Aben:

She was becoming old and frail
Less appealing to the fun-seeking male
To keep having fun
Something must be done
So, she put herself on sale!


All set for the New Year’s Day sale
She arrived, then her face went all pale
The queues were so long
She tried to be strong
She went home. The trip was a fail!

Christine Mallband-Brown:

My face must have gone really pale!
Even though it was up for sale.
The fridge freezer was pricey
And it was very very dicey
So I stole it and ended up in jail!

Kim Smyth:

Some shoes that I want are on sale
But the contents of my wallet were pale
So I bought them on credit
And I bragged about it on Reddit
My husband saw and began to wail!


When my daughter returned from the sale
She looked shocked, and really quite pale.
‘Please don’t get too mad,
But I’ve bought a new dad.
He looked so sad, alone, on the rail.’

Ruth Scribbles:

There was an old lady that went to a sale
She had so many items she stopped to drink ale
She stacked them up tall
Then they started to fall
She screamed and she started to wail.

Lance Greenfield:

I’d like to tell you the tale
Of a Shark who played fullback for Sale.
He danced through defences,
Who quite lost their senses,
As they tried to catch him and failed.

Note for those who who are unaware of the game ofrugby: Sale Sharks are a top English rugby team.

Linking People 2003:

Business by companies do Machiavellian policy hail,
As exercised by politicians to rob the rich for the poors to avail!
High prices are set at the launch period almost double;
Thereupon, price is reduced to make it affordable,
Such that not so privileged can buy during sale!

  1. They rang the bell
    When from grace she fell
    No longer on top
    Hitting the ground with a plop
    Exclaiming, What fresh hell?”

    I think that hell will be cold
    So uncomfortable when you’re old
    Craving warm weather
    Get rid of this sweater
    Baring skin isn’t just for the bold!

  3. I’ve had a hell of a cold
    It’s made me feel really quite old
    Coughing and sneezing
    Hacking and wheezing
    A remedy, I need to be sold!

    Jill looked into the well
    Precisely where he fell
    She called out “Oh, Jack!”
    But there was no voice back
    “Our mum’s going to give me hell!”

    Can you look at my bill, please?
    It is full of unexplained fees
    That’s quite a lot
    For who knows what
    Before I pay, Hell will freeze
    I see you didn’t like it a bit
    Me and my unhinged wit
    You say it’s crude
    And sometimes rude
    But I shan’t go to Hell for it

  6. No words can describe the foul smell
    Of a hermit crab, dead in its shell.
    If you find one of those
    Just cover your nose
    And ask just what is this fresh hell

    This one is from the heart…

    Commuting is the worst kind of hell

    Which can leave you distinctly unwell

    You’ll soon be believing

    That stopping breathing

    Is better than some second-hand smell.

    Oh, hell, will end of burka practice end sobriety?
    Yes, because burka allays beauty anxiety,
    Among women; subdues voyeuristic pleasure,
    For men, preventing violence without measure,
    Against women around the globe 🌎, notoriety!

    ओह, नर्क, क्या बुर्का प्रथा का अंत संयम का अंत होगा?
    हाँ, क्योंकि बुर्का ख़ूबसूरती की चिंता को दूर करता होगा,
    महिलाओं में; दृश्यरतिक आनंद को वश में करता है,
    पुरुषों के लिए, बिना उपाय के हिंसा को रोकता है!
    दुनिया 🌎 भर में महिलाओं के खिलाफ हिंसा कम होगा!

  9. Hell hath no fury, its said
    As that woman scorned, I saw red
    I kicked him out the door
    And as for his whore
    I kicked her right out of my bed!

  10. I only tried to wish her well
    She thought I said “you go to hell”
    The look I got
    Hurt a lot
    ‘Cause I tripped and fell in a well
