Limerick of the Week (17)

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 Honorable Mentions:

Congratulations to Madeleine Sara Maddocks who wins Limerick of the Week for this very amusing verse:

A woman who always felt free
Used to hang upside down from a tree.
In the dead of the night
A young boy took a fright.
Now he’s scared to go out for a pee.

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Ira Bloom, Victoria Ceretto-Slotto, and Phyllis Sterling Smith a/k/a Granny Smith. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Ira Bloom:

A fellow who always felt free
Told the government: “Just leave me be!
Tax and regulate? Bub,
Drown yourself in a tub!”
While the rich bastards chortled with glee.

Victoria Ceretto-Slotto:

A woman who always felt free
Burned her bra when she turned twenty-three.
Now at age sixty-eight
She is rueing her fate,
As her boobies keep knocking each knee.

Phyllis Sterling Smith a/k/a Granny Smith:

A woman who always felt free
To sing any ditty off key
Now finds it great fun
To see co-workers run
when she warbles a plain do re mi.

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.

    Well, Mad, it is crystalline to see
    That these winners indeed felt so free!
    Their expressions delightful
    (Not one the least frightful)
    Earn bows of respect–on my knee!
