Limerick of the Week (20)

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 David McCormick a/k/a AdamantYves who wins Limerick of the Week for this funny verse:

A fellow who loved a great thrill
Each day took a little blue pill.
Though he rose to the part
‘Twas too much for his heart,
And we can’t get his casket closed still.

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Ste Earp, Scott Crowder, Robert Basler, and Johanna Richmond. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Ste Earp:

A fellow who loved a good thrill
Attempted to ice skate uphill
Now with both ankles broken
Insurers have spoken
Confirming they won’t foot the bill.

Scott Crowder:

A fellow who loved a good thrill
Got naked to cook on his grill.
His ribs got well roasted,
His buns nicely toasted,
And his weenie has marks on it still.

Robert Basler:

A fellow who loved a good thrill
Went touring with Buffalo Bill.
He argued quite vocally
With young Annie Oakley.
You can find him up there on Boot Hill.

Johanna Richmond:

A fellow who loved a good thrill
Put his faith in a little blue pill.
So it came as a blow
When he found out there’s no
Pharmaceutical stand-in for skill.

Congratulations again to all the winners for your clever 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.

    Congrats to this week’s winners! Well done! ☼

  2. To the winners I say way to go
    To the rest you surely did show
    How to make a great verse
    Not too loose or too terse
    But next week we’ll see who’s in the know!!
