Laughter The Best Medicine
Limericks are a good source of laughter. If ever the reader finds himself or herself in need of a good laugh, then find some limericks to read. They are silly, entertaining, don’t take themselves too seriously, and so much fun!
They’re like sitcoms but on paper.
Here are the humble contributions of yours truly. Hopefully, the readers will find humour in these limericks.
“Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans. It is lovely to be silly at the right moment.” Horace
All The Fun People Limericks
There was a girl called Sylvia,
Who said, “Oh my, why is it that I,
must have the misfortune,
of having caught the attention,
of an old gent from Siberia.”
“People do not wish to appear foolish; to avoid the appearance of foolishness, they are willing to remain actually fools.” Alice Walker
There was an old gent from Sandwich,
Courting’ a lady from Greenwich,
He said, “Will you marry me,
And be my pretty baby,
Or would you rather be an old maid from Greenwich?”
A young lady went to town,
For to buy a new gown,
She would go to a party, you see;
But she tripped and fell down,
The young lady broke her crown,
She never did the attend the soiree, a pity.
Silly Animals Limerick
The gooseling and the duckling
At the pond they go a’swimming,
Swooshing in the water, so wee;
Says the gooseling to the duckling
’Do you ever fear a’drowning?”
Says the duckling “I’m a champion swimmer, see?”
“Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been silly.” Craig Robinson
