Luimneach X 5

O'Dowd An old hunter by the name of O'Dowd Shooting tigers for fun made him feel proud Had trouble with his gun There was no time to run Now lies covered on a slab with a shroud.. Jed There was a frisky old man known as Jed Took red pills so he wouldn't end up dead But his notes were misread He got blue ones instead Now no longer does he fall out of bed... Meat Pie You ever thought what goes in a meat pie I'll tell you and its no word of a lie See the finest of meat Is stray cats off the street So give it serious thought 'fore you buy... The Milkmaid A milkmaid worked on a farm on Dartmoor Had long blonde hair and her skin was so pure Late for work she did hurry Failed to see some fresh slurry She skidded and went face down in manure... Surfing Some young lads went for a surf in the dark To them it was a just a bit of a lark But in the moonlight They had a great fright When they spotted the giant fin of a shark...

Tom, you are 5 for 5 in making me laugh today. Thanks for the giggles. O'Dowd reminded me vaguely of Bungalow Bill from the old Beatles days. Not sure what a Luimneach is, I'd better look that one up. Applause; No Pause ~ John

G'day Tom ... another batch of smiley limericks, and of course inviting Tiddles for dinner dressed in pastry will have a few cat lovers nervous - thanks again Tom - Lindsay

Good ones, Tom. I would've thrown O'Dowd's carcass out and let buzzards pull his flesh apart. Oh, that sounds so mean!

Thanks Jenna, I've got no time for those that kill beautiful animals for fun and put pictures on facebook. Nothing brave about it at all, any idiot can kill something from a mile away with a high powered gun. Tom
