Vote on the Six Limericks

Vote on the Limerick you like best.

Limerick #1

There was an Old Man of Limerick

Who’s legs were as slim as a toothpick

He barely could stand

though he played in a band

Using his legs for his drumsticks!

Limerick #2

There was an Old Man of Limerick

Who married Noreen, a real nitpick

By day, she complained

All night, t’was the same

Til he impaled her upon his fiddlestick!

Limerick #3

There was an Old Man of Limerick

Who chastised his wife with a walking stick.

Though usually sedate,

His wife, quite irate,

Capped the old man with a paving brick.

Limerick #4

There was an Old Man of Limerick

Who tried to hurl a redbrick

When he cocked back his arm

His back he did harm

“Ouch” went the Old Man Of Limerick

Limerick #5

There was an Old Man of Limerick

any woman in the home he could pick

he left them alone

to talk on the phone

for he drooled for a sexy voiced chick

Limerick #6

There was an Old Man of Limerick

His mode of command was not simmer it.

He’d run all over town,

Shouting all up and down,

That he wouldn’t murmur or mimic it!
