Thank you to all our regular and occasional contributors this week for a great selection of limericks.

First, some more very fine things have been brought to our attention:

He showed me a very fine thing
A beautiful golden ring
I wanted not money
Or anything funny
Just commitment that was not a fling.
(PP)

He showed me a very fine thing
He could dance and boy could he sing
We spun around the floor
Almost out through the door
My heart went ring, dinger zing.
(LM)

He showed me a very fine thing
In a tiny box, a diamond ring
Would I try it on???
Oh yes, just for fun
'Course, it's for your sister, she's the one!
(LM)




We've been watching a lot of TV in Lockdown (and LM also reminds us we
should be making the most of the new Bridport U3A website):

I watched the TV and I laughed
Was it satire or political craft?
Was it the actual PM?
Or comedy hour mayhem?
Either way it was utterly daft!
(JG)

I watched the TV and I laughed
As a thought occurred, oh so daft,
When my mother-in-law
Comes through the door,
I will sit right there in the draught.
(RS)

I watched the TV and laughed
when Gordon Ramsay broke his haft.
He dropped the knife,
and blamed his wife
that the kitchen was understaffed.
(SS)

I watched the TV and I laughed,
Does the Health Sec. know for'ard from aft?
Such bloomin' nerve
When he said "Those we serve" ...
Was there ever an MP so daft?
(SS)











I watched the TV and I laughed
Debbie McGee was being Halved
By Paul with a saw
I'd seen it before
But this time it was done with such craft.
(TJ)

I watched the TV and I laughed.
Kirsty showed the most absurd craft:
Turning spaghetti
To edible confetti?
She's vanished right up her own aft!
(AR)

I watched the TV and I laughed.
The old sketch was really quite daft -
The parrot was dead,
A slug offered instead -
The Pythons, the top of their craft.
(AR)

What Can I Do In Lockdown?
Oh lockdown! When will you end?
I am going around the bend
My house is so clean
The dog has a sheen
To Bridport's U3A website I must wend!
(LM)

Have you seen the Bridport U3A Website?
Bridport's U3A website is a must!
It's a site you know you can trust
So much for us to do
You won't have time for the loo
Check out on Saturdays or BUST! 💨💨💥
(LM)





The suggested first line for next week is: I once met a very large bear.
This is only a suggestion so please do adapt the words or make up your own first line, if you prefer.

Until next week
