Limerick of the Week (6)

It’s time to announce the latest Limerick of the Week 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 wins Limerick of the Week for this very amusing verse:

A gal with a very long name
Had one quirk when she stoked a man’s flame:
Full names she desired
So lovers required
Phonetical flair when they came.

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) VerseBender, Elaine Spall, and Scott Crowder. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:


A guy with a very long name
Made quite a remarkable claim:
I’ve a tattoo concealed
That is only revealed
When ladies consent to inflame.

Elaine Spall:

A guy with a very long name
As a Doc, earned a quick rise to fame.
So sad, the essentials
Of all his credentials
Could not be contained in a frame.

Scott Crowder:

A guy with a very long name,
was playing a dangerous game,
with the West and Mossad,
may soon set the Mid-East aflame.

Congratulations again to all the winners for your wonderful limericks. And thanks to everyone for your fun submissions.

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.

    Thanks Mrs.K! and congrats to everyone. Great limericks all around and Johanna’s fine phonetical flair formulation was fatuously fantastic.

    Thanks Scott — love the alliteration! Congratulations to you too! And to Elaine and George as well! Mad, your limerick-off’s have been such great therapy for me this year — I’m grateful to you for sharing your talent and providing these fun opportunities for practice as well as for your advice and encouragement.
