Limerick of the Week (25)

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 JANE SHELTON HOFFMAN who wins Limerick of the Week for this clever verse:

A fellow who felt he’d been had
Complained of a misleading ad.
“It never did rise
Or double its size
Even though she was scantily clad!”

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Johanna Richmond, Amy Barlow Liberatore a/k/a Sharp Little Pencil, David McCormick a/k/a AdamantYves, Kerri Anderson, and RJ Clarken. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Johanna Richmond:

A woman who thought she’d been had
By her dubious date, “Man from Glad,”
Found his fetish for plastic
Sincere, not bombastic:
His meatballs were sandwich bag clad.

Amy Barlow Liberatore:

A woman who felt she’d been had
Gazed out of the window, quite sad.
Her millionaire dream,
A big Ponzi scheme.
Her slick lover was two times a cad.

David McCormick:

A woman who felt she’d been had
Told the Judge, “Kissed some frog on a pad.
“Well, next thing I seen
“Was this ugly, old queen
“Not the ‘handsome, young prince’ in his ad”.

Kerri Anderson:

A woman who felt she’d been had
Did say to her mother, “I’m sad.
“I’ve cooked and I’ve cleaned,
“I’ve primped, pressed and preened,
“But the only man ’round here is Dad.”

RJ Clarken:

A fellow who felt he’d been had
Re buying a dubious ‘Strad’
Found his authentication
Lacked substantiation.
Oh fiddlesticks! He was sure mad.

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.
