Limerick of the Week (44)

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 JIM DELANEY who wins Limerick of the Week for this very clever verse:

A gal was upset by a bill
For an item she’d sent to Goodwill:
“For resale, we’ve got
To remove every spot,
And your coat had a lot, Ms. de Vil.”

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Colleen Murphy, Robert Basler, and Byron Miller a/k/a Errol Nimbly. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Colleen Murphy:

A gal was upset by a bill
She received from her ex-husband Will
For services rendered
Which he never tendered
With any compensable skill.

Robert Basler:

A man was upset by a bill
When he sought a professional kill.
He said, “Holy s**t!”
“You charge WHAT for a hit?”
So a pundit is punditing still.

Byron Miller a/k/a Errol Nimbly:

A man quite upset with a Bill,
Said the plays Bill had written were swill!
Whence there came no denial
From the bard, just a smile
And a poke in the eye from his quill.

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.
