The Best of Intentions

Poor old Grandpa, though shaken, got grip,
Was determined no standards should slip,
But the giant of the three,
Tried to bounce on his knee,
And immediately fractured his hip.

This limerick may not make much sense on its own, but is the latest in a series. The others may be found here.

The Friday Groan

The fastest fish in the world:

The motor pike.

Making you groan… any day of the week!

I’d got pregnant the lass from next door,
She saw wedding, and marriage, and more,

We cemented the tryst,
And would urge me on with his twelve bore.

During pregnancy Grandpa was key,
In his element, and so was she,
But he could not disguise,
His undoubted surprise,
When from out of her belly pop

This limerick may not make much sense on its own, but is the fifth in a series. The others may be found here.

The Thursday Groan

At a whale-weigh station, of course.

Making you groan… any day of the week!

A prepared jazz musician named Harry,
Got a booking when someone got married,
He turned up, belt and braces,
Clutching two double basses,
Said they weren’t half a bugger to carry.
