Best Foot Forward,…

Clipart image of an old man with a cane

Tried the treadmill, to buck his poor trend
Power walking, he sought to amend,
But the machine changed its pitch,
When he hit the wrong switch,
And he straight away flew off the end.

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


  1. Laughing out loud as I know how it feels and you better have the leg power to stand up to the change to
    get to the button or you do fly over the end. 👍

  2. 🤣🤣 This is a relatively common scene in comedy movies but this limerick has called its name, resuscitated it and set it laughing. I think it’s the brevity and the clever rhyming. Brevity brings levity. Brilliantly done!
