Vacuous Limerick

Vacuous Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A vacuous gal who was vain
Had little upstairs, in the main.
But her body earned stares;
Men admired her wares,
Overlooking her thought-impaired brain.

(You can find more vain limericks here and body-related verse here.)

  1. Oh, I love, ‘thought-impaired brain’ !

  2. Susan Settje says:

    A man with two brains is not wiser
    Than his well-meaning one-brained adviser,
    For an air-headed gal
    And her double D pal
    Sets his little brain off like a geyser.

    Isn’t that often the way?

  4. Vaccinius says:

    Nice! I think the men wanted to perfect her … :-)

    Fun limerick, Susan. Thanks everyone!

  6. JulesPaige says:

    If the choice of a transplant was needed…
    would men choose smarts over ‘arts’?

    Just asking, as I’m not of that gender.
    Men oft times they surrender

    To primal and primitive
    instead of helpfully inquisitive.


    (It’s not a limerick but than it didn’t start out to be anything…
    it just grew…)
