Limerick of the Week (24)

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 clever verse:

A fellow who tended to brag
Blustered, “Ski slalom Gold? In the bag!”
But he met a sad fate
When, at the last gate,
He zigged when he needed to zag.

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Johanna Richmond, RJ Clarken, and Jane Shelton Hoffman. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Johanna Richmond:

A woman who tended to brag
Hoped her bra hid her sizable sag,
But the long straps and clips
She hooked up to her hips
Bobbed her boobs with each derriere wag.

RJ Clarken:

A woman who tended to brag
All about her ‘Kate Spade’ shoulder bag
Discovered … a fraud!
Yes, she saw it was flawed:
The name was misspelled on the tag.

Jane Shelton Hoffman:

A woman who tended to brag
Said she’d been in a bachelor mag
As not only the cover,
But Most Wanted Lover,
Even though she was starting to sag.

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.

    Awesome limericks… more people should post there’s on facebook because that’s more where i look… I should come here to the blog more often, but i am not to tech literate and barely know facebook… I just yesterday found out that posts on pages and groups come up on friends walls… and i have ‘church’ friends and write somethings someplace thinking that they wouldn’t be seen… like my poetic rant on how it feels to not have cigarettes or money for cigarettes for hours upon hours… it was applauded and refuted but i wouldn’t tell my church. I’m bad enough already… any way… i’ll be posting more so there, where the competition is not as hard… awesome limericks again, you can keep the prize money… just fax me a cig, or blow the smoke into the microphone… cheers!!!
