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 MUG in it somewhere. Here are your masterpieces:

Christine Mallband-Brown:

I really feel like a mug!
I gave my friend a hug…
He started to sneeze
Cough and wheeze
I caught a really bad bug!

Kim Smyth:

I once met a pug with a mug
So ugly I gave him a hug
To make him feel good
I gave him a hood
Now he’s cute as a bug in a rug!

Ruth Blogs Here:

Drink my tea from a lovely big mug
Don’t sip delicate mouthfuls but glug
With a satisfied sigh
Enjoy mood-boosting high
Love my internal, tea-flavoured hug.


An etiquette teacher, quite smug,
Said, ‘One doesn’t drink tea from a mug.
It is clear one oughter
Drink from cup and saucer,
With the milk poured from a jug.’

The radio told me ‘Today’s muggy,’
Which made me come over all fuggy.
But before very long
I knew they were wrong
As today’s not muggy, but tuggy.
(And tomorrow’s wuggy then thuggy, and fruggy…)

Lance Greenfield:

Lord Snooty was terribly smug.
He looked down on the people, whom he regarded as mugs.
But he got his come-uppance,
Which cost us just tuppence.
Prunes made him run more than any drug!

    If you want to be one of good cheer
    You must drain a mug of great beer
    If had with fine food
    It’ll improve your mood
    Or at least so I hear

    I missed last week, so I combined them 😉

  2. Down the plughole baby went!
    Is that what the old saying meant?
    I don’t think it’s true
    For if it did do
    The drain is too small and very bent!

    Power in an RV can drain
    Which is a bummer in the rain
    Charging your battery
    Will save your sanity
    And you’ll be on the road again!

  4. Missed mug, so combined with drain.

    I will drain my mug she said with disdain
    You can’t have any, you have no brain
    I’ll drink it all up
    You can’t have my cup
    I’ll tell everyone that you are to blame

  5. In a gesture that’s hard to explain
    Took my love for a walk in the rain
    She slipped in the mud
    With a terrible thud
    Now my romance has gone down the drain

  6. I looked down and I gave her a shrug
    Picked her up and I gave her a hug
    “I despise you, you know
    Now I’m wet, head to toe,”
    she said. Now I feel like a mug.

  7. Discard it and toss down the drain.
    Repeat; that means do it again.
    Accept that it’s fateful;
    In time you’ll be grateful.
    Now wash it, and please don’t complain.

    I heard my plumber explain

    To my wife, what was up with our drain:

    ‘You’ve a problem with feces

    Which will only increase if

    You let him go again and again (and again)

    I’m feeling a little scatalogical this week

    Some people will always complain 

    If having felt the need to strain 

    You’re in a bit of a rush

    To drain with a flush

    While people are still boarding the train

  11. I hired a plumber called Paul.
    He fitted my pipes far too small.
    So, when it did rain,
    It flooded my drain
    And flowed through my kitchen and hall.
