An extract from MAD KANE’S HUMOR BLOG post of 28th April (which does not seem to give a Reblog option). For the Limerick of the Week contest, a first line is provided which may have slight modifications but must keep the same rhyming word. There were 87 entries:
Limerick of the Week (111)
It’s time to announce the latest Limerick of the Week based on submissions (on this blog and on Facebook) in last week’s Limerick-Off.
Congratulations to Les a/k/a Colonialist, who wins Limerick of the Week for this clever verse:
An artist who often made scenes
Would paint them on flimsiest screens;
When backdrops were rent,
Cast would then, through the vent,
Cast aspersions while venting their spleens.
Congratulations to Colleen Murphy, who wins this week’s Facebook Friends’ Choice Award for this limerick which received the most Facebook “likes.”
An artist was drawing some scenes
Of the countryside down in Orleans.
As he sketched and he drew
He kept sipping some brew,
Which explains why his last subject leans.
And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Will T. Laughlin, Steve Whitred, Bob Dvorak, Ira Bloom, and Sue Dulley. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:
Will T. Laughlin:
An Irishman likes to make scenes
While wooing the village colleens.
But the girls understand
That his gestures so grand
Mean there’s nothing at all in his jeans.
In Bogey films there are some scenes
Where his shortness of height intervenes,
Like the time when he quipped,
“Ingrid let’s change the script
To a ‘hill’, from a ‘mountain’ of beans.”
A fellow who often made scenes
In the buff, to be seen on big screens,
Can’t act. When a guy
Out of work asked him why,
He retorted, “It’s all in the genes.”
A fellow who often makes scenes,
As he drinks, stumbles, trips and careens,
With few inhibitions,
Makes rude propositions.
A good thing his wife intervenes.
A youth leader takes in some scenes
With “her girls”, a small group of young teens.
She’s known to have stated,
“No, they’re not related,
Although they all have the same jeans”.
Well done and congratulations!!!!
Congratulations *applause, applause, applause*
you’ll have to bow some more, even numbers are much better than uneven ones…

Congrats to you and all the contestants Col! Well done! 🙂 *hugs*
You are most welcomly. 😛
So the contestants each wrote a limerick
With words they played their crafty trick
I stood a side with eyes aghast
My retarded mind is not that fast
But enjoyed the results that will always stick.
Haha! You should enter, too! The current first line is
A fellow would constantly hum…
