Limerick of the Week (66)

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.

Congratulations to Jason Talbott who wins Limerick of the Week for this funny verse:

A man who is very astute
Knows that sometimes it’s best to stay mute.
If your girl asks on chat,
“Do you think that I’m fat?”
Just pretend that you have to reboot.

Congratulations to Jane Shelton Hoffman who wins this week’s Facebook Friends’ Choice Award for this limerick which received the most Facebook “likes.”

A man who was very astute
Had dress stores that made lots of loot.
The women would flock
To buy a new frock,
For his clerks were well hung and quite cute.

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Patrick McKeon, Veralynne Bosko Pepper, Scott Crowder, Jamie Hutchinson, Johanna Richmond, and VerseBender. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Patrick McKeon:

A man who was very astute
At a concert for lute and for flute,
Knew the show would be bad
And the audience mad,
So he brought a large crate with bad fruit.

Veralynne Bosko Pepper:

A girl who was very astute
Was also alarmingly cute.
She’d use men for their money
By promising honey–
When promise time came she would scoot!

Scott Crowder:

A gal who was very astute
Received very little repute.
And because of her dress,
She is doomed to earn less
Than a swinging dick wearing a suit.

Jamie Hutchinson:

The trombonist was very astute,
Placed behind the young belle who played flute:
He worked his big slide
Without letting it ride
And “protected” the girl with a mute.

Johanna Richmond:

A gal who was hardly astute
But knew how to wink and look cute
Morphed from sweet Miss Wasilla
To Fox News Attila;
We all wish she’d stuck to the flute.


A man who was very astute
Found his checkbook just did not compute.
So he said to his wife,
“I can’t for my life
Figure what you have done with our loot.”

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.

    Why, thanks for the hon’rable mention
    Of my rhyming and metered invention.
    You saw that it’s not
    A frivolous jot,
    But an passionate plea for “prevention.”

  2. Jamie Hutchinson says:

    good stuff, jason & jane & gang!

  3. Jane Hoffman says:

    Wow! Thanks to all the people who liked my limerick. I am really honored to win. As usual, the other limericks were fantastic so the competition was stiff!!!!

  4. Johanna Richmond says:

    Another fine round of limericks! Thanks for the HM and congrats to all!

  5. Veralynne says:

    Each one of these elicited a LOL from me–even my own! I’m tickled pink to be counted among this illustrious company and congratulate you (us) all!

  6. Veralynne says:

    It’s fun to go out on a lim’
    Even when competition is grim
    The contests are fun
    We’re not “under the gun”
    And who tries to be proper or prim?
