Limerick of the Week (12)

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 the four Honorable Mentions:

Congratulations to DAISY MAE SIMON who wins Limerick of the Week for this amusingly clever two-verse limerick:

A fellow was in a bad mood
When his girlfriend, he learned, was a prude.
As he tried to seduce her
She said “That’s ABUSE, sir!
Stop letting your penis protrude!”

Second thoughts changed her mind and her mood.
She’d really not meant to be rude.
After all, he was cute.
He had quite a salute.
But too late, he’d been verbally screwed.

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Brenda Bryant a/k/a Rinkly Rimes, VerseBender, Elaine Spall, and Martin T. Hodges. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Brenda Bryant a/k/a Rinkly Rimes:

A fellow was in a bad mood;
He had swallowed a fly with his food.
As he coughed and he spluttered
Those nearest him muttered
“Those noises are terribly rude!”


A fellow was in a bad mood
As he lay there distraught in the nude.
Other women had said
He was worthless in bed,
But this was the first time one booed.

Elaine Spall:

A woman was in a bad mood
Cause she couldn’t stop thinking of food.
Then she said “Better try it…
This new sticky diet…”
And painfully had her lips glued.

Martin T. Hodges:

A fellow was in a bad mood
After seeing himself in the nude.
He was down in the mouth
As his eyes travelled south
Where the length of his age could be viewed.

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 for the honour! But it was Martin’s that tickled me…… well, not exactly!

    LOL Rinkly! By the way, I realized I left out your name and just had Rinkly Rimes. I’ve fixed it, and now you’re listed as Brenda Bryant a/k/a Rinkly Rimes.

  3. Versebender says:

    Thanks, Mad…as usual, so many clever entries. Vb

  5. madkane says:

    You’re welcome, Versebender.

    And Johanna, “Daisy and the Honorables” would make a great band name. :)

  6. Johanna Richmond says:

    Ha! It would indeed, Mad!

    Mad! THANK you! A wonderful surprise! My computer went kaput- so I have not been on fb for several days- (I’m on my hubby’s computer, but just for a couple of minutes because this is a work computer) Anyhow, I am deeply honored- I love reading the weekly limericks- I don’t know where you continue to find such great, creative inspiration for the starter lines (or for the limericks you write) but thanks so much for this site and for having the limerick-offs! I hope to be back up and running soon- (I’m having serious withdrawal!) Again, thanks much!
