Limerick of the Week (14)

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

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 SCOTT CROWDER who wins Limerick of the Week for this very clever verse:

A gal who was proud of her clout,
When fondled would shudder and shout.
And she learned by and by,
It is spelled with an I.
The O and the U are left out.

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Bruce Niedt and Ira Bloom. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Bruce Niedt:

A man who was proud of his clout
Brought a bat to the plate, big and stout.
Quite a menacing guy,
When the pitcher let fly—
But whaddya know, he struck out.

Ira Bloom:

A man who was proud of his clout
Nonetheless was consumed by self-doubt
‘Cause his aids quit en masse
Claiming “Newt, you’re an ass.”
All in all, he had little to tout.

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.
