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!
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.
