Subject: BS: Limericks anyone

Just scribbled this one, to start a limerick thread, if anyones up for it.

A bit clean for the moment, but I'm pretty sure it will descend.


Miss Muffet, on fleeing that day
From the tuffet, defended her play
She said, with these words
I was eating my curds
And the spider had right of whey

One of my favorites:

There was a young widow named Brice,
Who kept her dead husband on ice;
She said, "T?was hard when I lost him,
I?ll never defrost him;
It?s rather cold comfort but nice."

I'm ahead of the game, having started a limerick thread Here on the WoodenBoat Forum. I declared my rules to be "readable in a sixth grade class without the kid being sent to the Priciple's Office". I was amazed by how clean it was kept. We can easily post photo's there but they'd been used for hyjacking and flaming purposes too much lately.

The challenge is posting a lyric
Attack in the form of a limerick,
Pictures are banned,,,,and swearing gets canned,
The last line should set them to jeering.

Before we can get to the polls,
We suffer from internet trolls.
Their manner quite grim,,,,no humor slips in.
Lets poke their facades full of holes.

Asterisk, asterisk, asterisk,
no school teacher horrified should pick,
a small child to send,,,,to the office forfend,
to be punished for reading an asterisk.

There once was a gaucho called Bruno,
Who said " shagging is one thing I do know "
A woman is fine,
A sheep is devine,
But a llama is numero UNO.

Ther are three types of limericks,
1. limericks that can be told in the presence of ladies
2. limericks that can be told when ladies are absent but clergymen are present,
and 3. LIMERICKS

Eric - I don't know about clergymen but I've been fighting a battle all my life with the idea that my sensibilities are too tender to be exposed to LIMERICKS and the like. Some of us ladies are quite broadminded nowadays - to sing some folk songs you HAVE to be.

I know that it's nice for a man to behave like a gentleman but, if the lady is agreeable then I can't see the problem with her hearing some of the ruder limericks/jokes. Can you?

Thanks, Peter, for your suggestion.

Here's another one for the nautically inclined:

There once was a pirate named Gates,
Who thought he'd do battle on skates,
But he fell on his cutlass
Which rendered him nutless,
And practically useless on dates.

Arghhh!

When the duo I was in at the time had a residency in a pub , the Landlord had this idea that by nine thirty we should be on the
'Rugby' songs . When this worked it was great , but when we did the participation bit it seems to me that there were a lot of ladies whispering to their male partners , who then added a (usually) rude
verse.

The Limerick packs laughs anatomical
In a space that is quite economical
But the good ones we've seen
So seldom are clean
And the clean ones so seldom are comical

Believe it or not, there is actually such a thing as a pious limerick:

God's plan made a hopeful beginning,
But man spoiled his chances by sinning.
We hope that the story
Will end in God's glory,
But at present the other side's winning.

Even worse than the pious limerick may be the conceptually rhyming limerick:

There was an old man from Saint Bees
Who was stung in the arm by a wasp.
When they asked, "Does it hurt?"
He replied, "I feel no pain.
I'm so glad it wasn't a hornet."

I fully agree with you jacqui c, that definition was from a book about limericks by either the folklorist Gershon Legman or believe it or not the Reverend Sabine Baring Gould who was the son of the great collector.
And NO darkriver that's NOT a limerick.

One in the same vein as darkriver's:

There once was a man from Dunoon
Who used to eat soup with a fork
For he said, "As I eat
Neither fish, fowl or flesh

And that puts me inmind of "Irritating Poem", as performd by Roy Bailey.

A complacent on Don of Divinity
Made boast of his daughter's virginity
They must have been dawdlin'
Down at old Magdalen--
It couldn't have happened at Trinity.

A mathematicians named Hall
Has a hexahedronical ball,
And the cube of its weight
Times his pecker, plus eight
is his phone number -- give him a call.

(With a sequel!):

A habit obscene and unsavory
Holds the Bishop of Wessex in slavery.
With maniacal howls
He deflowers young owls
Which he keeps in an underground aviary.

But the prior of Dunstan St. Just,
Consumed with canonical lust,
Raped the bishop's prize fowls
(His treasured young owls)
And a little green lizard, what bust.


These are all from Baring-Gould's "Lure of the Limerick."

there once was a fellow called Cheney

he kept him well trained
and a little constrained..
but his oaths were a little profaney..

But Bush was a little resistant
tho Cheney was strong and insistent
our Dubya kept dithering
and crapping and blithering
so Cheney brought in an assistant

Now Bush couldn't speak out without fluffin'
the assistant was ordered to muffle 'im

If we really want to get rude (so far they've been quite literary!) I could dig out those I learned from 'More Rugby Songs' about thirty years ago. In the meantime:

A lady who lived on the Humber
Had a wond'rous collection of lumber:
Old boots and tin whistles,
A brush without bristles,
Three harps and a fossilized plumber.

Tried to drag the whole nation
Into sin and damnation;
But he failed, and fell flat on his head.

Oh go on then

A virile young man from Glamorgan
Was proud of his sexual organ
As long as a rake
It looked like a snake
That belonged on the head of a gorgon

a flea-ridden dachshund, while scratching
nefarious plots was a-hatching
"Cat" control was his plan
Little Hawk was his man.
Every last thread he was snatching.

tee hee

cross posted to bad poetry about little dogs but why waste good doggeral?

One who added to threads on Mudcat,
thought it easy and all just "old hat".
He did not realise, that in others eyes,
He appeared as a bit of a twat!

Ode to Fritz the Dachshund

Our dachshund from Deutschland named Fritz
Used to give our poor neighbours the fits
He peed on their daisies
And drove the cats crazy
And tore all the garbage to bits

He would start at first glimmer of dawn
When he'd drop a big load on their lawn
Then he'd strut 'round the place
A smug look on his face
And assault their shitzu with aplomb

He would bark at the slightest excuse
And go on like a psychotic goose
Then he'd bellow on some more
Just outside the front door
Till they'd turn the old Doberman loose

Then he'd yelp and flee into the house
Where he'd lurk like a terrified mouse
Underneath Mother's bed
He would hide and play dead
While destroying a sweater or blouse

He would eat anything he could steal
From a cooler, the fridge or your meal
He'd imbibe party glasses
Get drunk and make passes
At the potbellied pig, how she'd squeal!

He tried walking on swimming pool water
Which inspired my cousin's young daughter
To leap into the drink
Though we yelled, "Let him sink!"
He was saved, though she hadn't of oughter...

He ate seventy pounds of old ribs
And robbed candies from babies in cribs
When his stomach was pumped
They discovered a clump
Of old socks and it cost 30 quid!

When he finally sickened and died
And went to his reward in the sky
We got flowers for Mum
Played a slow kettle drum
Then all cheered and got bloody well high!

Nice one Little Hawk.

There once was a woman called Venus
Who said to her chap,â€쳌We're obscene, usâ€쳌
Long marriage ensued
Did you think this was rude?
Be honest, I'll keep it between us

Simon

I composed this a couple of days ago while watching a contractor trying to fit a new screen/storm door to our old, out-of-plumb, house:

There was a young contractor, Jim,
Whose wife had a monstrous large quim.
"But," he said, "I forgive her.
I'll just use raw liver
As a sort of a flexible shim."

If a person writes lines on a thread,
without really using their head.
They may seem like an ass, or appear rather crass,
and others may wish they were dead.

But if that person uses their brain,
writing sensibly now and again.
They'll capture attention, with literal invention.
Thus Kudos and status they'll gain.

I admit it, that I have a gap.
between my neck and my cap.
So I make an attempt, though it may look unkempt.
It's really a load of old crap!

There was a young lady; she was Greek
Who had her monthlies twice a week
Said her young man from Woking, most provoking, no poking
So to speak.

I know one about a youg girl from the Azores, but it's too crude.

a limerick...laundered or rude
with raison d'etre so crude
   its rhythm and rhyme
travel onwards through time
with no deviation a'lewd.

There was a young girl from Pitlochry
Made love to a man on a rockery
She said: It's no fun
These stones hurt my bum,
This isn't a f**k, it's a mockery!

(Apologies for the asterisks, but I'm not at home and it wouldn't get thru' the censoring programme otherwise)
