Laughing Along With A Limerick

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend.

Your new limerick challenge is as follows:


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

Christine Mallband-Brown:

I’m in a spin today
I don’t know if I’ll stay
My mood is low
And I want to go
For an ice cream on the way.

Ruth Blogs Here:

Fast-boy racer took girl for a spin
Pimped-up car and a showing-off grin
Drove so fast she felt sick
Vomit curdled and thick
Sprayed a pebble-dash coating within.

Kim Smyth:

I took my man for a spin
After drinks at the local inn
He was too woozy
From getting too boozy
From now on he’ll think before drinking that gin!

Val Fish:

Oh the trouble I’ve got myself in
My head’s in a terrible spin
Should I resist his charms
Or with open arms
Let my heart rule my head and give in.


Clare Chaste, having necked some rough gin,
Felt her head continually spin.
‘The floor’s on the ceiling
And I’ve a terrible feeling
My yang has spilt from my yin.’

I was told, ‘Always avoid a cheap djinn,
Because once he’s got under your skin
He’ll spin you some pish
About making a wish
Which is when your troubles begin.’

Ruth Scribbles:

We took a spin and stayed at the inn
Where the linens were scrawny and thin
Multiple bites
From the bed mites
We set fire to the place for a win.

Lance Greenfield:

I once wooed a maiden called Jenny.
She could spin some fine yarn for a penny.
I felt such a twit
Till I learned how to knit.
Now we make warm clothes for the many.

  1. On my right foot I have five toes
    And one of them is giving me woes
    I went for a walk to stay fit
    Unfortunately a toe nail split
    I’m trying to walk without my shoes!

    Be home in five the man said
    The woman rolled eyes in her head
    She was used to the lies
    And him she despised
    She promptly went right back to bed!

    The story idea seemed absurd:
    Just five, not a single other word
    It must be done
    Just for fun
    And so some clever ideas were heard

    No, I am not making fun of Esther’s other challenge… lol

    I went to the reading of the will
    Waiting for the payoff was a thrill
    But when my name was read
    My gift from the dead
    Was a single five dollar bill

  4. ‘Twas in nineteen-hundred and fifty-five,
    That Lanny Boy began to thrive.
    Naughty and bold
    and ever so old;
    It’s a wonder, to many, that he’s still alive.

  5. The Limerick form’s still alive
    Our efforts will make it survive
    Some rhymes are no more,
    They stop at line four
    We keep going till we hit five!

    Bea Goode was told at school to strive
    ‘To commit your life to the growth of the hive’.
    But Bea told friends, ‘This is shitty’
    ‘I’ll buy a flat, move to the city.’
    ‘And only work from nine to five’.
