Limerick of the Week (30)

It’s time to announce the latest Limerick of the Week based on submissions (on this blog, on Facebook, and on GooglePlus) in last week’s Limerick-Off. I’m very pleased to announce the winning Limerick of the Week and the Honorable Mentions:

Congratulations to J COSMO NEWBERY who wins Limerick of the Week for this very clever verse:

A guy in the mood for a bite
Ate a candle and half a flashlight.
“I’m on a new diet,
I urge you to try it,
Now I’m lighter but not very bright.”

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Veralynne Bosko Pepper, RJ Clarken, Jane Shelton Hoffman, Mark Megson, and Pari Cooper. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Veralynne Bosko Pepper:

A guy in the mood for a bite
Stepped out, in a cape, for the night.
It was foggy and gray.
WOW! He LOVED it that way!
Let’s see now … whose neck’s the right height?

RJ Clarken:

A gal in the mood for a bite
Gets a call for a dinner invite.
Andrew Zimmern’s her date:
Bizarre food’s on the plate.
Change of mood. She says, “Fasting tonight.”

Jane Shelton Hoffman:

A guy in the mood for a bite
Told a gal who was not very bright,
“Just give me a taste
Of your soft, little waist,
and I promise that’s all for the night.”

Mark Megson:

A guy in the mood for a bite
Found a tasty one during his flight:
The air hostess’s rear
Was deliciously near.
He gave the poor girl quite a fright.

Pari Cooper:

A gal in the mood for a bite
Thought she’d thaw something out for that night.
When she opened the freezer,
The sight didn’t please her.
In fact she lost all appetite.

When the stench from the box hit the air,
She thought she saw something like hair!
A whole body dismembered,
But then she remembered,
She’d bought Dahmer’s old Frigidaire!

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.

    So thrilled to be amongst the wittiest honorables, not to mention the winner who’s limerick so well deserving of the first place position. Again, I wish to thank the Mad, Mad, Madeleine for poring over our attempts to humor her, ourselves, and mostly each other. Here’s to keeping up the fun and enjoying such a worthwhile way to socialize with such dedicated thinkers.

    Many thanx, Mad,

    To Pari: Ditto! LOL!

    And to Mad, thanks for your patient coaching! I’m more of an abstract artist in all modes. Asymmetrical, non-matchy-matchy and most of all, while I may have rhymes (at times), when it comes to rhythm, not so much!

    You have no idea how much these little forays into the lims mean to me.
