Limerick Thursday

So, I am sitting in Panera this morning contemplating life and enjoying a Cinnamon Crunch (™) bagel. I have to go finish fixing up an unfortunate pickle/kitchen drain incident but I need some motivation.  I decided that a limerick might put me in the proper mood to do manual labor.  Most limericks are crude, and although I typically appreciate such humor, I will not share any of those here.  Instead, I will write an inspiring ditty to motivate and educate…

My house is so old that it creaks
Many of  its pipes have clogs or  leaks
so when disposing of food
check on his mood
for your husband’s blood pressure may peak!

Oh, oh…here’s another one I just came up with…

Never put pickles down the drain and cause the dispose-all  to strain
better to feed to the dog
than to cause such a clog
and make you clean up a pickley rain!

By the way, this is a limerick that makes me laugh.  Its author is unknown but hilarious I think:
There was a young man from Japan
Whose limericks never would scan.
When asked why this was,
He replied “It’s because
I always try to fit as many syllables into the last line as ever possibly I can.”

So, do you have any G or PG-rated limericks you care to share? Haikus are welcome too. Got any good plumbing stories to make me feel better?  Want to buy my house?

  1. Sorry…laughing to hard to be creative.

    One of my children once flushed an ‘Ernie’ wrench down the toilet. Hubby was out of town and I had only one bathroom so called a plumber when my plunger and snake would not unclog it. Said plumber had to remove the toilet, he set it into the tub to unclog it and proceeded to crack the tub. Hubby was not happy…

    Have fun! kim

  2. There once was a man named Warren
    and he was never borin’
    The things he would do
    caused his wife to boo hoo
    And HER blood pressure went soarin’

  3. For our loverly home we have prayed
    Mistakes in it’s sewer line were made
    Our D*** Builder is a fool
    In our basement was stool
    Oh, what to do, wanna trade?

    There once was a Man from Virginia West
    Who thought his Hills were the best
    He has a facination for the bee
    He loves Abigail, Isaac, and Emily
    And his hobbies put Em to the test!
