Limerick of the Week (81)

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 Tim James, who wins Limerick of the Week for this funny verse:

A Quaker gal just wouldn’t whine
When a fellow behaved like a swine.
There was no anger flaring
And — goodness! — no swearing
Though she murmured, quite clearly, “Up thine.”

Congratulations to Scott Crowder, who wins this week’s Facebook Friends’ Choice Award for this limerick which received the most Facebook “likes.”

A fellow who tended to whine
To his wife if the house didn’t shine
Pushed her over the edge.
Now his breath smells like Pledge,
And his ass has a fresh scent of pine.

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Karin Gustafson a/k/a Manicddaily, Mike Dinicola a/k/a Mr. Lim, and Johanna Richmond. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Karin Gustafson a/k/a Manicddaily:

A fellow who tended to whine
Hooked a rather big fish on his line.
But he groaned to his rod
That it’s only a scrod
And wasn’t precooked in white wine.

Mike Dinicola a/k/a Mr. Lim:

A fellow who tended to whine
Remarked while astride the Date Line,
“What happens to ‘when’
If I’m here ‘now’ and ‘then’
And will yester-today e’er combine?”

Johanna Richmond:

An accountant who tended to whine
Claimed she only liked sex while supine.
Her turnover rate
Deflated her mate
Whose dream was a tight bottom line.

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.
