Limerick of the Week (19)

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 PHYLLIS STERLING SMITH a/k/a Granny Smith who wins Limerick of the Week for this very amusing verse:

A fellow I tried to ignore
Was the neighbor who moved in next door.
I found, to my sorrow,
That things he would borrow
Were stashed in his second-hand store.

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Bruce Niedt, RJ Clarken, Johanna Richmond, and Scott Crowder. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Bruce Niedt:

A fellow I tried to ignore
Has become quite a pestering bore,
With his really tight pants,
And his red cape and dance —
I’m a bull, he’s a toreador!

RJ Clarken:

A woman I tried to ignore
Made a scene in an haute couture store.
She paired a pelt scarf
With faux feathers. (Oh barf!)
Quoth the raven, “Faux pas! Never more!”

Johanna Richmond:

A fellow I tried to ignore
Has followed me all through the store.
He thinks me a slacker
Declining his cracker;
Oh hell – pass the Spam de Wild Boar.

Scott Crowder:

A woman I tried to ignore,
Had spurned my advances before.
Then she offered romance,
And I jumped at the chance.
I’m a typical, sex craving boar.

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.
