Well, it’s June! What better way to start a new month than with a Limerick Alert. I understand that many of the readers of this blog wait patiently for me to post limericks that are a bit more interesting and suggestive, but once again I’ll post this selection of limericks that are cute and funny and written primarily for and by children. For those of you who like your limericks with a bit more spice, I’m compiling a collection more to your liking that will be posted in a few weeks. These six will have to carry you through until then, so let’s get started. I also hope you’ll appreciate this first limerick because it’s the only limerick ever to use the word Nantucket without offending anyone.

There was an old man of Nantucket

Who kept all his cash in a bucket.

But his daughter, named Nan,

Ran away with a man,

And as for the bucket, Nantucket.

๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ

There was a young lady of Crete,

Who was so exceedingly neat,

When she got out of bed,

She stood on her head

To make sure of not soiling her feet.

๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ

There once were two cats of Kilkenny;

Each thought there was one cat too many.

So, they fought paw to paw

And they scratched claw to claw,

Till instead of two cats there weren’t any.

๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ

There was a young woman from Niger.

Who smiled and rode out on a tiger.

They returned from the ride

With the lady inside

And a smile on the face of the tiger.

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER

It’s been quite a while since I posted a Limerick Alert due in part to my semi-invalid status these last few months. Now that I’ve been cleared by the doctors once again I can freely move around my residence without the need of a wheelchair, walker, or a cane. I feel like a new man even though I will have to learn how to walk properly all over again. These limericks are always humorous as they were written by children for children and they’re all extremely well done. These are rated G and are safe for children.

By Marion Swinger

An unfortunate schoolboy named Pete

Had extremely malodorous feet.

If he waggled one sock,

The olfactory shock

Could empty the average street!

There was a brown dog named Spot

Who tied up his tail with a knot,

To remember his bone

Which he’d left back at home

When he sometimes went out for a trot.

By John Hegley

There once was an organic leek

That had managed to learn how to speak.

At the sight of a knife,

It would fear for its life,

And go: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!

๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

By Catherine Osborne

There was an old fellow from Pinner

Whose wife became thinner and thinner.

He told her, “My dear,

You’ll soon disappear,

Stop slimming, start eating your dinner!”

ENJOY !

I thought today I would take a different approach to limericks. I like posting them in categories like children’s limericks, medical limericks and of course the more interesting, body part limericks. So, I want to step away from all of those categories today and share a few called Limericks about Limericks. Here we go.

๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

A limerick tells of a scene

Which often is crude or obscene.

But, if smut’s what you’re after

To bring about laughter,

Then tough, because this one is clean!

๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—

A limerick writer named Fred

Composed much of his work in his bed.

His poor wife declared

That she wouldn’t have cared,

But he tapped out the beat on her head!

๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

No matter how grouchy you’re feeling,

You’ll find that a limerick’s quite healing.

It grows in a wreath

All around the front teeth,

Thus, preserving the face from congealing.

๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ

There was an anthologist who

Has decided that nought is taboo.

Her words are so rude,

And her versus so lewd,

I’m sure they’d be appealing to you.

THE WEEKEND IS IN SIGHT

Any day is a good day for limericks whether they be bawdy, funny, or cute. Anything to make us smile a little is certainly worth the effort. Since we’ve all loved our years of school and our family pets, here are four related limericks and they’re relatively child friendly as well.

๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

A small boy when asked to spell “yacht,”

Most saucily said, “I will nacht.”

So his teacher in wrath,

Took a section of lath,

And warmed him up well on the spacht.

๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 

A teacher whose spelling’s unique

Thus, wrote down the “Days of the Wique”:

The first he spelt “Sonday,”

The second day, “Munday”

And now a new teacher they sigue.

๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–

A cat in despondency sighed,

And resolved to commit suicide.

He got under the wheels

of nine automobiles,

And after the last one he died.

๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

There was a young man from the city,

Who met what he thought was a kitty.

He gave it a pat,

And said, “Nice little cat!”

And they buried his clothes out of pity.

Enjoy Spring

With the holidays underway I looked far and wide for some holiday related limericks. I found a few but they were absolutely horrible. So, I decided that since every holiday has a feast of one kind or another, today’s collection of limericks will be about food and eating. They are also rated G so the younger readers can enjoy them as well. The juicier limericks will continue after the holidays for all of you poetry connoisseurs. These are circa 1952.

A diner while dining at Crewe,

Found quite a large mouse in his stew.

Said the waiter, “Don’t shout,

And wave it about,

Or the rest will be wanting one, too.”

๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ

There once was a pious young priest

Who lived almost wholly on yeast.

“For.” he said “it is plain

We must all rise again,

And I want to get started, at least.

โ˜ƒ๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธ

There was an old person of Dean,

Who dined on one pea and one bean.

For he said, “More than that

Would make me too fat,”

That cautious old person of Dean.

๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„

There was an old lady of Brooking,

Who had a great genius for cooking.

She could bake sixty pies

All quite the same size,

And could tell which was which without looking.

Continuing the Christmas theme for this week, here are a group of Christmas limericks collected from far and wide places. I hope they put a holiday grin on your face.

Santa came home with a reindeer

And Mrs. Claus said with a sneer

โ€˜Did you have to bring

That horny old thing?โ€™

Rudolph said, โ€˜Madam, he lives here.โ€™

๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„

An elf said to Santa: “Oh Dear,

We’ve not enough presents this year”

That made St. Nick think:

Now he’d given up drink

He could give all the children some beer!

๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿป

I saw mom and Santa having a chat

She told him he was much too fat

She then grabbed his behind

With eyes closed kissed him blind

Then they both fell down on the mat.

๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„

Old Santa got drunk on warm ale

“I’m too old for Christmas” his wail

“But what of the toys

For the good girls and boys?”

“I’ll send all the presents by mail!”

It’s time for some cute yet funny limericks written primarily for kids. The author will be noted when possible but most of these limericks are approximately fifty years old. They are cute and funny without a lot of sexual inuendo and profanity. These are just plain fun.

A little boy down in Natchez

Sat upon powder and matchez.

For the seat of war

He hankers no more,

Though re-enforced well with patchez.

Here’s a little Jim Nast of Pawtucket

Wo slid down the stairs in a bucket.

He has more understanding

Since reaching the landing,

Just look at the hole where he struck it.

A puppy whose hair was so flowing

There really was no means of knowing

Which end was his head,

Once stopped me and said,

“Please, sir, am I coming or going.

A certain young fellow named Beebee

Wished to wed with a lady named Phoebe.

“But,” said he, “I must see

What the clerical fee

Be before Phoebe be Phoebe Beebee.”

HAPPY MONDAY

I thought all of you would appreciate a few relatively harmless limericks mainly concerned with anatomical issues. The weekend is in sight and maybe these little ditties will help get you through until then.

There was a young lady of Kent,

Whose nose was most awfully bent.

One day, I suppose,

She followed her nose,

For no one knew which way she went.

๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

There was an old man of Blackheath,

Who sat on his set of false teeth.

Said he, with a start,

“O Lord, bless my heart!

I’ve bitten myself underneath.

๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

There was an old man of Tarentum

Who gnashed his false teeth ’til he bent’em.

When they asked him the cost

Of what he had lost,

He replied, “I can’t say, for I rent’em.”

๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

A girl who weighed many an oz.

Used language I dared not pronoz.

For a fellow unkind

Pulled her chair out behind

Just to see (so he said) if she’d boz.

Let’s put an end to this week with a few cute and clean limericks. While most of us really enjoy the racier limericks there are many readers out there who enjoy a tamer version. Here we go . . .

There was an old man of Nantucket

Who kept all his cash in a bucket.

But his daughter named Nan,

Ran away with a man,

and as for the bucket, Nantucket.

๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

The bottle of perfume that Willie sent

Was highly displeasing to Millicent.

Her thanks were so cold

They quarreled I’m told,

Through that silly scent Willie sent Millicent.

๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

A flea and a fly in a flue

Were caught, so what could they do?

Said the fly, “Let us flee.”

“Let us fly,” said the flea.

So, they flew through a flaw in the flue.

๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—

There once were two cats of Kilkenny,

Each thought there was one cat too many.

So, they fought, and they fit,

And they scratched and they bit,

Till instead of two cats there weren’t any.

07/28/2022 “Looney Limericks”   Leave a comment

It’s not often I get surprised especially by anonymous gifts from readers. My surprise occurred a few days ago when I received a fifty-page paperback booklet printed in 1999. It contains a collection of what are titled “Looney Limericks”. I haven’t the faintest idea who sent it but please consider this a big thank you, whoever you are. Here are a few samples of some clean and funny limericks apparently written for children.

There was a young man of Bengal

Who went to a masquerade ball.

He dressed, just for fun,

As a hamburger bun,

And a dog ate him up in the hall.

๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

A mouse in her room woke Miss Dowd.

She was frightened and screamed very loud.

Then a happy thought hit her

To scare off the critter,

She sat up in bed and meowed.

๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

There was an old man of Blackheath,

Who sat on his set of false teeth.

Said he, with a start!

“O Lord, bless my heart!

I’ve bitten myself underneath!”

๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

There once was a hungry old leopard

Who brought home a skinny young shepherd.

Said the leopard, “I feel

That you’ll make a good meal

Once you’re properly salted and peppered.

๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

HANG IN THERE, IT’S ALMOST FRIDAY
