FIVE LIMERICKS

Inspired by Joseph Mays limerick contest. (not for contest ) ----------------------------------------------- A mischievous chef known as McMurray For a joke put Epsom salts in the curry The toilet door he did lock The customers were in shock He left by the back door in a great hurry. An astronomer by the name of Pete Was perving at the lady cross the street Full moon he did spy But not in the sky He got caught and went as white as a sheet. There was a dodgy plumber called John Blake No plumbing skills was a bit of a fake The wrong nut he undone Panicked went on the run Now downstairs of the house has its own lake. A randy teacher called Fred O'Hare With a young girl he had an affair But she told her dad Who went hopping mad Now Fred is getting medical care . There was a very weird poet from Bude Loved to sit out writing verse in the nude A wasp stung his manhood Screamed out as you would Doc said that's what you get for being rude .
