Thursday Humour

OPENED IN ERROR. A man had bad news about his mother Had loads to drink one after another But later on that night Was seen happy and bright Said that letter was meant for my brother. ANGUS. An old sailor by the name of Angus Fell in love and married an octopus They had a son James Who won gold at games Found having six arms in sport was a plus. OLD NICK. The horned devil had set himself one goal To collect from those who had a dark soul He was on to a winner Saw mankind a great sinner Said hells fires will need a lot more coal. OLD WOMAN. There was an old woman from Nantucket Had no teeth so her food she would suck it But one day she choked On meat that was smoked And sadly that's how she kicked the bucket. NELLY. There once was a young girl called Big Nelly When she walked by she shook like a jelly Was told to lose weight Before its too late So doctor's have now stapled her belly.

Thanks Andrea, the first one was inspired by a joke I heard in Big Jacks pub on Irelands' west coast about fifty years ago so thought I'd do a limerick. Tom

I laughed with them all Tom, but the last limerick I enjoyed most of all, great for the collection for your Book of Limericks. Blessings, Jennifer,

Thanks Jennifer, no chance at the moments, doing a PP slideshow for a forthcoming reunion so limited time. Tom

Having six arms would be an asset in many types of sports. Love all these limericks, especially the one about Angus. It surprised me! Laughed out loud reading about the "Old Woman." It's hard to eat without teeth. Great work, Tom! Love, carolyn
