The Blight Before Christmas

The UK just sanctioned a jab That scientists made in a lab My best friend, Maxine Just had the vaccine Which left just a tiny green scab Her husband was lying in bed He lay there with eyes full of dread He didn’t expect This weird side effect His wife had just grown a new head Then Christmas arrived right on cue And Santa had had the jab too And while it sounds silly He’d grown a new Willy And Maxine screamed... I’ve got one too.

This is one of the funniest limericks I've ever read, Terry, and your form is perfect too! (I started laughing when I saw the title and nearly "had a cow" when I read the last line! Congratulations on a great first-place win. Best wishes, Carolyn

Thanks Andrea. The way people on the radio phone-ins are talking, extra heads and, er, other stuff, is the least of our worries. Thanks again for your comment. Terry

Thanks Tom. Unusually for me, I was struggling to come up with another Christmas covid ditty... until people on Talk Radio started going on about side effects.... ‘PING!’
