Limerick of the Week (36)

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 KONRAD SCHWOERKE who wins Limerick of the Week for this clever verse:

A woman who went through a phase
Was weary of men and their ways.
“I’m sick of the brawling
And please! No more mauling.
I’m done shopping sales with these gays.”

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Karin Gustafson a/k/a Manicddaily, Brenda Bryant a/k/a Rinkly Rimes, Johanna Richmond, Pari Cooper, Kathy El-Assal, and Matt Monitto. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Karin Gustafson a/k/a Manicddaily

A woman who went through a phase
Took all her old light bulbs to graze.
She was terribly keen
To make them “go green,”
But had a dim grasp of the phrase.

Brenda Bryant a/k/a Rinkly Rimes :

A woman who went through a phase
Of enjoying the masculine gaze,
Decided to tease,
Threw off her chemise,
And walked through the town in her stays!

Johanna Richmond:

A fellow who went through a phase
Of responding as if in a daze
Said, “There’s lots up there twirling
With notes I’ve been squirr’ling.
I suffer from catch-phrase malaise!”

Pari Cooper:

A woman was deep in a phase,
Of lim’ricking all through her days
Ev’ry night and each morn,
(if she didn’t view porn)
She was posting a new MadKane phrase.

Kathy El-Assal:

A woman who went through a phase
Of hogging the spotlight and praise
Took a walk down the aisle
Dressed in haute couture style
For a marriage that lasted mere days.

Matt Monitto:

A woman who went through a phase
Would go hunting for sales. ‘Twas a craze:
There was fire in her eyes
When the prices would rise,
And she’d occupy Macy’s for days.

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.

    Thanks for the HM! I feel I must note, however, that your tags include a “Mark Monitto.” I don’t think there are any Mark Monittos in existence.

  2. madkane says:

    Matt, you’re very welcome. Well deserved! And thanks for alerting me to my tagging error. I’ve fixed it. (That’s what I get for posting in the wee hours. :) )

    Congrats to the winner and Hon mentions

  4. Veralynne says:

    Admirable work, all! Including Mad, without whose brilliant prompts none of us would be here!

  5. Veralynne says:

    Oh, where would I be
    If t’were not for she?
    Reading, writing and such
    Not enjoyed half as much
    As lim’ricking with all of thee.

    (Just a bit o’ doggerel fer de ol’ folkies.)

  6. Veralynne says:

    To Karin Gustafson: Your limerick is really a riot! It struck me funny bone just right. Methinks yer woman was outstanding in her field, but a dim bulb, just the same.

  7. Konrad Schwoerke says:

    Thanks! This is fun, and not just the writing. There are a lot of fun limericks here. Congrats, everyone.
