Lemonade & Other Tales

Lemonade & Other Tales

W.C. Fields kept his best booze
in a container he couldn't lose,
a thermos of "lemonade"
to avoid a police raid,
as bourbon from his pores would ooze.

* * * *

Never trust a woman with warts,
especially on tennis courts,
for your eyes will be glued
and soon you'll be boo-ed
by your sarcastic co-horts.

* * * *

My car is a piece of crap,
too nasty to even scrap;
it has no actual doors,
and I have to use oars
to move it along the map.

* * * *

Big Bob had a 10 foot dick,
and he'd flash it for every chick
as he passed them by,
until he couldn't deny
incarceration for "flicking his Bick".

* * * *

Little Eva liked that gravy
on tatters and guys in the Navy,
and she was so sweet,
they'd give her a treat,
making their hair very wavy.

* * * *

I always loved old Dick Tracy
played by William C. Macy;
his jaw was so square,
and he'd always dare
you to wear boxers very lacy.

Had to come by for the second serving! Quite a feast today up uproarious limericks. Makes me wish we had a virtual pub to drink these along with! Well done, sir!

Now that I've gotten you hooked on limericks, my job here is done. Other than to lure you to my
Limerick-Offs, of course. :)

I especially enjoyed the imagery of your car limerick.

As I said, you're the poet prolific!
With the quantity you are terrific!
Thank God quality's high
Otherwise, it's bye-bye -
As it is, this is all limeriffic!

Glenn, what stories of warts and booze
What’s the use of playing a ruse?
We pretend to be nice
When we all have the vice
And if you snooze you lose

What fun! I particularly like the one about the car.
