Limerick Of The Week (2)

We have a new Limerick of the Week winner, based on submissions (on this blog and on Facebook) in last week’s Limerick-Off. I’m very pleased to announce the winning Limerick of the Week and three Honorable Mentions:

Congratulations to Johanna Richmond, who submitted two excellent limericks. Johanna wins Limerick of the Week for this clever verse:

A woman was terribly late
For her first in this century date.
She later confessed
She skipped getting dressed
And skyped in her natural state.

And congratulations to the Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Edmund Weisberg, Phyllis Sterling Smith a/k/a Granny Smith, and VerseBender. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Edmund Weisberg:

A fellow was terribly late
Having died in the midst of his date,
Leaving diners aghast
At the lurid repast,
As his date polished off ev’ry plate.

Phyllis Sterling Smith a/k/a Granny Smith:

A fellow was terribly late
Understanding the current debate.
When told that inflation
Would ruin the nation
He asked, “Are we all overweight?”


A fellow was terribly late
Which didn’t sit well with his date.
“My promise of heaven
Was valid at seven
But promptly expired at eight.”

Congratulations again to all the winners for your wonderful limericks. And thanks to everyone for your fun submissions. There were so many good ones, narrowing them down to the best four was quite a challenge.

In the next couple of minutes I’ll be posting a new Limerick-Off, which gives you yet another opportunity to win Limerick Of The Week.

    Thank you for the honorable mention. I am delighted that Johanna got the top honor for the only limerick this week that had me actually laughing out loud, not just a virtual LOL.
