May 12th: National Limerick Day. Care to Write One?

Advertisement

Writer Edward Lear would celebrate his birthday today, May 12th, if he were still alive. Unfortunately, he died in 1888 at the age of 76. He was the gentleman responsible for the popularity of the limerick in a book he published in 1846 called, "Book of Nonsense".

Definition of limericks: a humorous verse or poem that is five lines long. The first two lines rhyme along with the fifth line and the third and fourth lines rhyme. Wow, much trickier than I would have thought!

Take some time and help celebrate Lear's birthday with some fun filled limericks. Go ahead, make me laugh!

btw, did you know Limerick is the third largest city in Ireland? Those Irish have a keen sense of humor!

Author Edward Lear Was a terrific man, quite a dear But alas, he's dead and gone This is a tribute, five lines long If he'd been born later, I'd be his peer

You might find the Irish queer But I find them nice to look at - I even leer If I should see one looking back I'd fear they may be ready to attack! All will be well, just offer them a beer

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Sorry, that doesn't count. It must be five lines long...reread the directions! ;)

Cute it might be, or so you said Now I've got limericks stuck in my head So go about your work or school Think of me as just the fool Writing rhymes until I'm dead!

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

There once was a bloggin grandpa named Roe My favorite song blog one day he did stole He made up for it today Limerick blog his suggestion to play At Christmas I'll treat with a lump of black coal

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

What! Bob doesn't rhyme with done or hun....try it again it might be, well, 'fun'!

So, maybe your fifth line could be - this would, of course, all be done in fun? Just an example - on the whole your writing was terrific so don't give up! hehehe

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Your limerick sucks, it makes me fume Although your style is fine and in tune Consider some one else at which to poke fun Scare off another - make them want to run Knock if off now, or this blog I'll pull - I'll be the loon!

Mr. Aunt cuzin to the fifth power, Autie - I admire that you are a student of anarchy and that you take literary license. This is how a great deal of our unique writing styles develop. You get an A for your anarchy and license, but you MUST knock it off with bullying your fellow classmates. Whack went the ruler! Oops....bet that hurt, didn't it......

There once was a girl named Elise Who was famous from Paris to Nice For her *** **** Looked just like bing cherries And they sold for five dollars apiece

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Mr. Ret, I've heard rumor that you were aware this was limerick day - should all blame go to thee?

Bob and autie, clearly defining this as a limerick blog. Please continue to write in the proper format and in a manner of politeness and good humor. The other nameless topic shall remain just that. I refuse to be pulled into it. I consider all of us to act as the adults we are.

Yes, I'll be seen as the loon rather than be s party to putting anyone other than myself down.

Here's a favorite I learned at the feet of my sainted grandmother. I'll blank out the naughty bits for the delicate sensibilities of our readers:

Blank blankety-blank blank Blankety-blank blank blank Blank blank blankety blankety blank blankety blankety river of sh*t

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

were, very nice. Your grandmother told a good limerick indeed!

Nicely done, consumer one I did not mean that as a pun I am not being mean or cruel But do clean up that pot of drool Lets keep writing and have some fun!

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

snap, where am I going wrong can't find a rhyme for cherries in your song It might be best that I can not For fear that with it I'll be caught I'd be embarrassed and my face go long

RoeDapple 4 years, 7 months ago

Actually I got the idea from R_I on another thread. credit where credit due!

RoeDapple 4 years, 7 months ago

There was a young man named Tucker, Who dreamed of being a trucker, But try as he might, Could not get it right, So the truck line said 'Hit the road, sucker!'

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Okay, thanks for the idea Mr. Ret...., hopefully we'll have some good clean fun with it.

Good one, Roe....you've certainly got the idea of the limerick down properly....

Your new avatar is hysterical, btw!

RoeDapple 4 years, 7 months ago

There was a young man named Jim Sang of a fellow called Slim Died way too young, Liked the songs that he sung, Avatar picture of him.

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Wow, that's a great one, autie.... Lets hope we stay ahead of the storm...some close calls this year for a lot of people and many not so fortunate.

Roe, I am familiar with him His lyrics were similar to hymn Words like gospel - true to his heart Saddened like many when he had to part Life for many thereafter was dimmed

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

This blog is way too serious now We need to add a punch and a pow! Lets lighten the tone Take turns on the throne Make mud pies like a cow

RoeDapple 4 years, 7 months ago

There was a young lady named Bess, Whose hair was always a mess When nothing would work She felt like a jerk So cut it all off,I guess

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Haha! Good one. Did mine about a cow make you think of the name Bess? I think I remember we had a cow with that name and of course always referred to them as Bossy. Wait a minute, that was me they were calling Bossy.

ivalueamerica 4 years, 7 months ago

There was a silly young man named Hyde in a funeral procession was spied. when asked who was dead he just giggled and said I don´t know, I came along for the ride.

There was a troll called marion who was sent off to darian he desired to return but was left there to burn now he is nothing more than carrion.

K_Verses_The_World 4 years, 7 months ago

From the Limerick Post: "Aiken Promotions are proud to announce a second show for Thomond Park in the guise of the legendary Bob Dylan. Bob will take to the stage at the Munster Stadium on July 4th."

Never seen him on stage, just in a flick So I’ll fly off to Ireland double quick A ticket I’ll buy For the Fourth of July When he plays a concert in Limerick

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

I am seeing some negativity, fellow limerickers...or is that limerick tricksters..... Let us not call people by name, please.

Although I have to admit the rhyming is for the most part quite good.

Bob Dylan performs in July? Surely you jest or you lie Can't afford to see him at home Or the need to go roam I can't do anything but cry!

On a forum well known for its rants, No's, Won'ts, Shouldn'ts, and Can'ts, She said Join the Fun! Dust off an old pun! And write a limerick - In My Pants!

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Okay then...I was wondering when Nantucket would arise! good ones, Mr. President...er, uh,...I mean Tom.

This in from Passionatelibra:

I have a vague memory of a thing called sex In crazy positions with crazy effects. Upside down, sideways, against the wall During a masquerade ball in an exhibition hall I loved it when he added his Y to my X!

Now that's more the limerick I've been thinking of of..... Thanks, passionate. Glad to see you're still feeling your oats....all the whey :)

Very cute, schula. I can picture your kitty doing all the above. (no, not what passionate said)

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Looks as though something just hit the fan was it a trick or a treat or a plan? it's difficult to know whom to trust although when in the dark it's a must I don't know about you, I suspect cuzin clan!

Good one, DNC, hum, doesn't that stand for something I'm opposed to.

Now the power is out, it is true I'm ready to pout how bout you? it won't do any good if I bring in some wood the electric company hasn't a clue!

RoeDapple I don't mean to mess But to Ronda I did once confess "Jay_lo" makes for easy mistake But I'm not a hen I'm a drake So from the she won't you please drop the "s"

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

You're doing well, Jay. Perhaps I'm not good at assessing though after that nasty fall I apparently had earlier. I fell so hard I cracked me bottom! :). The duh has a distinct problem at the end of the fifth line - Ronda and Honda are tricky, eh!

let's see if I can limerick that one before Roe beats me to it

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

One more thing that I must tell you Roe To find out why I chose not to go Return to Ronda's "Position me - One last time" And there you will find out in rhyme How the two of you helped make it so

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

I wasn't sure if I shoujd step in and let Roe in on that knowledge, Jay. See, it's like this - all cuzins look the same to that guy! In other werds, watch yuur step and always walk backwards so you cun sea ifin he's behind ya.

I hadn't heard that one, River! And you've remembered it how long?

RoeDapple 4 years, 7 months ago

Jay-lo, on your gender I erred, To Ronda I knew you had shared I didn't go see That embarrasses me Hope that this showed that I cared.

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

Lol it is true To see you quote ol' Scooby-doo Ruh, roh caught off guard Now I'm laughing so hard That my funny bone split nearly in two

I once knew a man in the navy his head that's now bald had been wavy we drank much more than we shoulda when I didn't say no he heard coulda and now I'm carrying his baby

Hope you got a good fit on that vest Jay-lo. Sometimes around here they take a beatin'!! Glad we could help

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

Will log out and turn in for the night But you all can continue to write On the cuzzins I'll check When I get up, what the heck If you write purty it'll start my day right

Sass Madelein unter den Aestchen Und spielt' mit dem Knableinmastchen, Dem niedlichen Zweck- Bald ist der Kranz weg : Blieb nichts davon nur das Kastchen

to tell the truth dont know what it mean but my grandpa wrote that for me something about being pure or saintly

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Very nice. Hopefully someone will come on to decipher. Nice sounds to it and I think it's nice to have a limerick in another language. Thanks!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

I guess I took that as a dare. It looks like it's German with a few misspellings. Using an online dictionary, the best I can come up with for a translation is this:

I was on pins and needles about a girl who was under the little bough (as in a tree), who played with the master of the little boys (schoolteacher), which was a means to an end, quickly the * was a long ways off, and it ended up that there was nothing, only the little box.

  • have to leave that out, TOS agreement.

Under the cow I should push him reading his limerick gave me this whim I'm thinking the more time he's under the udder the more respect he'll have for his other it's time to zip up and put away Slim

RoeDapple 4 years, 7 months ago

He can scream and he can shout If it can't get up it can't get out He remembers the show But now it won't go So all he can now do is pout

At night while you all were asleep The man we can't name came to creep He'll whine and he'll pout 'Cause he can't figure out ♣How through the back door we can peep♣

Good morning, Roe who art limerick king you've started the day with the dongs and the dings the dis and the dats those rat a tat tats we'll see if the 'others' come back with their zings

DrGoose 4 years, 7 months ago

The limerick started with Lear, Who could tell us, if he were still here, That the soul of good wit Is to carefully fit In five lines all one needs to make clear.

RoeDapple 4 years, 7 months ago

The Goose has made it quite clear How limericks properly appear But since Goose is new My suspicion grew Hope he doesn't soon disappear!

;-)

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Dr. goose is looking quite queer writes rhymn as though dr. suess were his peer to be new makes one a suspect on here all who sign on shall gander and leer give benefit of our doubt, start off calling him dear!

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

The limericks here are quite clean Those I know tend to be more obscene On May 12th this did start National day for this art A "Hump Day" now isn't that keen

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Your limerick quite fitting I'm sure our online guests to their host quite pure but others places you go, at least what I've seen, are enticing and produce much more than obscene what can I say, I may simply hold no allure

Good morning! I am just stopping by to give evreyone the afternoon off. Feel free to leave at 11:15. Have a great weekend!

Frederic Gutknecht IV 4 years, 7 months ago

There once was a limerick written by one who was limerick smitten. He started out strong but got the end wrong. Yes on purpose, it seems, I ain't rhyming.

altarego 4 years, 7 months ago

The limericks must not only rhyme They've also got rhythm and time I beg and entreat a metrical beat So next year won't be such a crime

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

There once was a rhymer named Solomon Who tried to complete a limerick all day long Although he never finished one His beginnings seemed like fine puns Perhaps he should skip nights and rhyme at dawn.... (and leave out 'never mind') ;)

Altarego says it swell, so fine rhythm and rhyme in sync with time don't forget to dance and cheer when you've got it, it's oh so clear and to your beer add lime!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

There once was a lady named Ronda, who never would ride in my Honda, which I've now traded in, that was surely a sin, and now gone is the car which I was fonda!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

Yup! An '87 Accord. It was one of the best cars I ever had, I should have kept it longer. With proper care, those things last about forever.

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

Oh, by the way, did you see my shot at translating the German limerick? I think part of it is idiomatic, and therefore it would be a violation of the TOS to state exactly what the girl lost while playing wiith the boy's school teacher.

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

I had a Subura for way too many years. That car would have outlived me - it is likely out there, lurking now so I know what you mean. Certainly there are lemons, but there are the gems where you really get your money's worth.

I hadn't noticed your translation so thanks for mentioning it. Nice work! And a nice limerick. I appreciate the effort you put into it.

There once was a limeric in German when Ron was asked to translate he said, "sure, man!" beerdrinkingfool supplied copy which made my eyes skip over and hoppy! Ron passed the limerick test, when asked if he could speak German responds, "Yes, I can!"

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

Ronda I say "It's been fun" As a blogger you are number one You've new ideas to spin And we'll all join in Once you tell us that this one is done

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

I think that my brain's turned to mush Damn limericks continue to gush Oh why can't my head Just admit this blog's dead And tell my poetry muse to please hush

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

Hope Ronda you know that I jest When I say let the limericks rest Write as much as you care 'Cause I'll proudly post there That you are the best of the best!

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

Oh no! the limericks won't cease The speed they appear doth increase I think I've gone nuts No ifs ands or buts When will the darn things give me peace?

Limericks spinning 'round in my head Try to call it a night, sleep instead Hope my dreams they do be Free from this insanity Or I'll just toss and turn in my bed

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Jay_lo is addicted to the limerick high he's tossing and turning but as hard as he tries "Please Lord, help me I can't seem to get free" he writes yet another, tsk tsk, oh my!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

Ron dreamed of a limerick so fair, That he wrote one on only a dare.
It didn't take long, And nothing was wrong, So he finished with nary a care.

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

A limerick is much like a song, But not nearly so long. It's done all complete, But not to compete, And if it rhymes it's not wrong.

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

We think many things rate a a shout, But few are worth shouting about.
You give people a scare, About things they don't care, And the friends you lose you can't count.

We go through life all fancy and free, The biggest thing on our minds is me, And it passes so quick, While we get old and sick, And with gray hair we finally can see.

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

All of our lives we're looking for love, Not thinking of the heavens above. But that's where we'll be, Real soon, can't you see? We'll fly through the air, free like a dove!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

There's nothing that reminds us of pain, Like a day full of wind, fog, and rain, But the sun will again shine, Once more life will seem quite fine, And once more we'll again be quite sane.

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

Hey these were supposed to be humorous. I guess I missed that point.

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

Ron tried to think of a limerick that was funny, But that was like catching a bear without honey, And he thought that was rough, And indeed it was tough, It was quite like getting through life without money.

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

Ronda, dear, now look what you've done, About limericks, it's not just one, Can't seem to quit, Now I've been bit, 'Cause rhyming is now so much fun!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

This blog's not most discussed, So I screamed, swore, and cussed, There's more comments by far, And it's sure on a par, Why is our fun so shushed?

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

OK that one did it! We're now on the most discussed list again!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

To write a limerick with grammer, Takes smashing words with a hammer, It's got to rhyme, And that takes time, You must make sense, don't just stammer!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

I love to buy things on ebay, You place a bid and click OK. You get something nice, At just the right price, It's just what I want, I must say.

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

I've got to give up the beer, That thought is ever so clear. I'm getting so fat, That ain't where it's at. Once slim I'll be such a dear!


I've not got much else to do, And now I'm in such a stew! I keep on a rhyming, It's all in the timing. Please Ronda, give me a clue!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

Oh Ronda, please start a new blog, And please get me out of this fog, I can't quit this writin', Although I've been fightin', It's like being stuck in a bog!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

For some it is easy to rhyme, And some can make just the right time. But to get it just right, It takes quite a big fight To write these dumb limericks in prime.

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

I want to stop, I want to quit, Writing these silly words of wit, I can't seem to stop, Although it's a flop, I'll keep writing - just for a bit!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

We need a group called LA, I've sure got something to say. If you can't quit, And have no wit, You've got to keep it at bay!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

I try to relax in my room, But with a bad feeling of doom. For limericks are calling, As though they were falling. Then right back to this blog I zoom.

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

It's Ronda's fault, there is no doubt, And there's nothing to do but pout. For she started all this! A blog none will miss Not at all, not even a lout.

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

The latest installment of Shrek Should play well in Lawrence, we'll check 'Cause he looks like Lew Perkins Having choked on green gerkins The resemblance uncanny 'bove the neck

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

I'm waiting for Ronda to complain, That this blog is causing her great pain, And sometime soon, Maybe at noon, She'll say SHUT UP, I'm going insane!

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

Ronda, when you first posted this blog, I thought there was no way I could ever write one. I thought it would take forever to get the words to rhyme, especially with the correct syllable count, which is supposed to be the same for lines 1, 2, and 5, and lines 3 and 4 are supposed to have the same number of syllables also, but a lesser number than 1, 2, and 5. I did break that rule on a few of the early ones. And as far as iambic pentameter or anything like that, I ignored that completely.

And you are supposed to actually say something in that format!

But then, after trying a few, I discovered it was actually pretty easy, just about all of the above were composed in only a couple or a few minutes. Then I couldn't quit!

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Shut up, I'm going insane the limericks written inane! While Jay and Ron struggle on hoping, begging and pleading they con bending and twisting my arm, complain!

I can read and take your hint your cries of new make me squint I'm lazy it seems, dreaming dreams of being a poet

Ron Holzwarth 4 years, 7 months ago

Well, we can't finish off this blog without a limerick by Edward Lear himself. I could only find one:

There was an old man with a beard, Who said, "It is just as I feared! Two owls and a hen Four larks and a wren, Have all built their nests in my beard!"

       - Edward Lear

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

Not a struggle, a labor of love To keep comment totals above She will remain Queen Of this site's blogging scene As from gently behind her we shove

Jay_lo 4 years, 7 months ago

We hope that you took no offense As we limericked on without sense There's no need to dream You're a poet supreme Since before and from this moment hence

Ronda Miller 4 years, 7 months ago

Read the poem Ron supplied by Lear must admit ours are better, she sneered! I'm not wanting to appear cocky but we're head, shoulders and jockey above, this includes nice Jay and moral Ron, the rest of our peers.
