Limerick of the Week (34)

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 a bit early this time because I’m not sure if I’ll have any Internet access Sunday.) I’m very pleased to announce the winning Limerick of the Week and the Honorable Mentions:

Congratulations to BRUCE NIEDT who wins Limerick of the Week for this clever verse:

A fellow who just let it slip –
“I’m the captain on this ocean trip!” –
Caught the ear of a minx,
So that if the boat sinks,
You might say she’ll go down with the ship!

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Jane Shelton Hoffman, Robert Schechter, and Madeleine Sara Maddocks. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Jane Shelton Hoffman:

A woman who just let it slip
To her boyfriend that she used to strip.
Heard him shout ,”How’d you dare
Dance and lay it all bare
When for me you won’t even unzip!”

Robert Schechter:

A fellow who just let it slip
That the moyel took too big a snip,
Said, “Now my son Earl
Is my dear daughter, Pearl.
That does it! The man blew his tip.”

Madeleine Sara Maddocks:

A fellow who just let it slip
That he liked nothing more than to strip
Was arrested one day
With his parts on display
When he failed to remember his zip.

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.

    Ha! Awesome! I actually thought my other limerick had a better chance, but this is great. Thanks!

    You’re very welcome! I liked your other limerick too. But the double entendre in your winning last line sold it for me.

  3. Awh thank you so much for my honourable mention and congrats to the winner and other awardees.

    I must say I thought your hubby’s Limericks were fab too.

    I confess I don’t always do the limericks each week simply because they race around my head for the rest of the week, so I give myself some brain space sometimes LOL! :O)

    You’re very welcome Bruce and Madeleine! Bruce, I liked your other limerick too. But the double entendre in your winning last line sold it for me. Madeleine, hubby Mark was delighted by your compliment!
