Lame Limerick

I hope you’ll join me in writing a limerick with this first line:

A guy with his foot in a cast…

Here’s mine:

Lame Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A guy with his foot in a cast
Was driving his car way too fast.
His wheel struck a hole.
He lost all control,
And the time for a cast was surpassed.

Please feel free to write your own limerick using the same first line and post it in my comments. And if you’re on Facebook, I hope you’ll join my friends in that same activity in my Limerick-Offs.

  1. A guy with his foot in a cast,
    Ran a marathon, really half-assed
    He failed to master
    Running in plaster,
    And ended up finishing last

  2. A guy with his foot in a cast
    Once tried to race his car fast.
    When acceleration
    Went past expectation
    He broke his other foot, and his arms, and his clavicle, and most everything else, and swore that if he ever wrote a limerick about it, he’d write one so awful it would never be surpassed.

  3. A guy with his foot in a cast
    Formed it as Jesus holding a mast.
    He flew as he sinned,
    on each freshening wind,
    and enjoyed being an iconoclast.

    A guy with his foot in a cast
    Thought he was a quick healer–really fast.
    He struggled back to work
    Where they knew he was a jerk
    He even made it to Happy Hour last.

    The pain was so great he was wincing
    His poker face wasn’t convincing
    His foot was a-swellin’
    By 8:00 he was a-yellin’
    And no dirty words was he mincing!

    The ambulance drivers being tough
    They handled him hard and so rough
    They knew he needed his cast off
    But once he had brassed off
    They, both of them, had had quite enough.

    The drivers were used to men screaming
    But they sought traffic that was teeming.
    Taking side streets, not highway,
    Going slowly, singing, “I did it my way”
    They rendered our casted friend steaming!

    The moral to the story, my friend,
    Is that, though often bitter, in the end,
    Whether pained or maligned
    Hold your anger and be kind
    To those upon whom you depend.

    A guy with his foot in a cast
    Chose to conquer the mizzenmast
    It was to be a short climb
    Gaining a foot at a time
    But losing two slithering down fast

  6. Dr. Goose says:

    Said a guy with his foot in a cast
    “This time it is certainly the last
    That, while crossing the street,
    I’ll send out a tweet
    And tune in an iTunes podcast.”

  7. Steve Vitoff says:

    A guy with his foot in a cast
    Told his team at his bedside amassed
    “My buddies, you bet
    I’m filled with regret
    For rushing when I should have passed”

    These are great fun! Thanks everyone. And please keep them coming!

    A guy with his foot in a cast
    Underneath had an itch quite steadfast
    His frustration and anger
    Made him untwist a hanger
    Such relief! He’s no longer harassed!

  10. Mark Kane says:

    A guy with his foot in a cast
    Asked his mate to raise up his low mast.
    She cranked for good measure
    And tendered much pleasure.
    Now if only the captain could last.

  11. Steve Bumgarner says:

    A guy with his foot in a cast
    R’joiced o’re Doc’s order – “Bedfast”
    He’d oft jog before dinner
    And though this made him thinner
    His true d’votion to running? Half-assed.

  12. Nessa says:

    A guy with his foot in a cast
    got it caught in the line of a mast
    they called him a wimp
    waving around his limp
    while they shot him with cannon blast.

  13. A guy with his foot in a cast
    Sat down for a gourmet repast;
    When later, his lover,
    Sought him under cover,
    She discovered he was really gassed.

  14. Steve Nance says:

    A guy with his foot in a cast
    Thought his ball-playing days in the past.
    But with his foot hard and thicker
    They made him a kicker;
    At field goals he reigned unsurpassed.

  15. Jeff says:

    David Vitter has told us his view
    As always, he hasn’t a clue
    Those who doubt Barack’s birth
    Are the dumbest on earth
    But then I’m not saying anything new.

  16. madkane says:

    Thanks everyone. These are great fun. And Jeff, I think you meant to post this on my other blog’s Vitter post.

  17. Elisson says:

    A guy with his foot in a cast
    Rode a time machine into the past
    When he fell off the roof.
    By undoing his goof,
    He returned home uncasted at last.

  18. naquillity says:

    hello Mad Kane~ you made a nice limerick with your line above. here’s mine… hope all is well.

    a guy with his foot in a cast
    stopped for a drink at last.
    his ex wife there to greet
    with a laugh not so discreet
    was kicked and left aghast.

    a story,
    a poem,
    a limerick,
    what smart and beautiful combination!
