Limerick of the Week (50)

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 ROBERT SCHECHTER who wins Limerick of the Week for this funny verse:

A woman who earned a degree
In English said, “Oh lucky me!
The honor! The glamour!
The job-offer clamor!
What’s that? No, the pickles are free.”

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Madeleine Sara Maddocks, Robert Basler, Kathy El-Assal, and Steve Bumgarner. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Madeleine Sara Maddocks:

A fellow who had a degree
Could get you one too, for a fee.
“With a Bachelor of Art
You could make out you’re smart
But it’s more for the full MSc.”

Robert Basler:

A fellow who had a degree
Failed at playing his new DVD.
He said, “What a fool!
“All that time spent at school,
“And I cannot turn on my TV?”

Kathy El-Assal:

A woman who had a degree
En français, took a trip to Paris.
She was very polite
So she took great delight
In saying “je t’aime” and “merci.”

Steve Bumgarner:

A fellow who had a degree,
Took the lowly job sweeping debris.
No stress, but a hitch:
Minimum wage is a bitch.
At this rate he’d not make bourgeoisie.

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.

    I confess I also loved Johanna Richmond’s and RJ Clarken’s. ;O)

    Oh, man! Indeed these were great! You must have been up nights trying to decide because it seemed there were so many deserving honor!

    You’re most welcome, Madeleine Maddocks! Well done!

    And Veralynne, well I tend to be up nights anyway. :)
