MAD Glibs – Limericks and Fun
My friend Mad Kane has issued several calls for limericks lately. Here’s my attempt to catch up, just for laughs. (The lines in red typeface represent the limerick prompts.)
There once was a guy with no hair.
Each evening, he played solitaire.
The day finally came
When one pretty dame
Discovered him a millionaire.
A hard-working author named Fink
Once penned a “Dear John” to his shrink.
He ranted and railed.
The missive he mailed,
But wrote with invisible ink.
The Party Line
There once was a government clerk,
Disgruntled with his line of work.
Then he had a fling
With sweet silly string
And drove all his colleagues berserk.
Strappy, but Snappy
A woman was feeling depressed.
She needed not double chin rest.
A surgeon with glee
Took her E to B,
And she got it off of her chest.
A fictional writer named Frank
Fell victim to publisher prank.
He offered his tale
‘Mid fresh cakes and ale,
And signed for a royalty blank.
The Other Woman
There once was a nag known as Ag,
A stingy and surly old bag.
But each night she danced,
By suitors entranced,
Thus causing the town tongues to wag.
A dim-witted driver named Ed,
Whose long locks were braided in dredd,
Did smartly refuse
His real name to use,
Because it nine syllables read.
