Lude Limericks

Hop over to Madeleine Kane's Blog to join in with the Limerick Off



A man who was lacking in wit
Often giggled into his armpit.
While one just surmised
He had deodorized
It appears, he was feeling a nit.



 I also wrote this Limerick after hearing a listener request on ClassicFM.
The lady came from a suburb of London:


There was a young woman from Churtsey
Who never knew quite how to curtsey
She bobbed up and down
Then trod on her gown
Thrusting her cheeks out quite pertly.
