More Limericks!

I tell you, driving across a 24 mile bridge twice in a day gives you plenty of time to come up with more limericks (see the others in the post below...)

Here we go again:


Says Julie at Using My Words
Toxic chemicals AREN'T for the birds
Dread Disease is no fun
Listen, candidates who run:
Plan to get this environment cured!

Got causes? Then write some Just Posts.
Mad and Jen are the lovely co-hosts.
Speak truth in love
Or throw down the glove
Over issues that speak to you most.

There once was a blogger named Painted
Whose image was suddenly tainted
When her Mom found the blog
All her veins it did clog
And onto the hard floor she fainted

(and these limericks just use NAMES of blogs, rather than being specific about the blog or bloggers...)

I exercise while Seeking Sanity
My search is not purely for vanity
If I fit in this dress
I will have much less stress
Than if I'm as large as a manatee

Oh, how I do love to sing
Bright sunshine true happiness brings
A hug and a kiss
Will always bring bliss
Peanut butter's Another Good Thing.

(Monday Mission - a post written from the point of view of some other thing in my home - coming soon.... And don't miss my Limericks below. This is fun! Write one about me!)

Hmmmm....

I'll try, but I think I may have to stick to Haiku. :)

Love the one about you and your mom!

Kathryn said...

Brilliant!
You mom didn't really faint, did she?

flutter said...

The one about your mom cracked me UP!

there was this young lass named Maypole,
Who hit the bottle once more,
Then she wrote and she wrote
And now we emote
We love that young lass named Maypole.

The line about your mom made me snort - how many times has one of my parents asked me to stop using words like "labia" on my blog? Way too many.

Again - you keep showing us the many layers of your talents, girl. Love the limerick!

Emily said...

wow! You're Limmerick-Terrific...prolific!

These are fun!

Glad you're feeling better.

How fun! :)

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

You are just a riot with these! I'm so envious of your limerick talents!

Mad Hatter said...

Wow. I think you used your bowdlerizing talents honed in that last production to good effect here. and there--just down there in that post that I could draw an arrow to.

I'll bet that when you chose a blog name you didn't consider the fact that it's only rhyme was A-hole.

These are great. I totally want to use the one you wrote about me and toxic town. yes?

They just said benzene levels are up here again!

I loved the one about your mom...how true is it?

Going to vote for these now...
