Limerick Challenge Week 25: Humor
Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far; I have been super busy working on too many things at the same time. I have exciting news to share with all you, but not now, hopefully sometime soon! I apologize for the delay in posting this week’s limerick challenge, thanks to a severe thunderstorm with strong winds (and a tornado warning) we had internet outage all of this Friday and half the day on Saturday!
Anyway, without further ado, let’s look at the Top 5 limericks from Week.
If you have not already, click here, to view all the limerick submissions for Week 24.
And the limerick superstar of this week………….*drumrolls please* Modern Woman by Image & Word
Once upon a time not long ago
A Princess told her Prince where to go
Tired of fairy-tale stuff
She said ‘I’ve had enough
Of this macho-man bullshit you know!’
Congratulations to Image & Word– the Limerick Superstar of the week!
The next two top limericks on my list are Magarisa of Becoming Unstuck and Ranu of Sabethville
Followed by Mahared Wynn and Frank of Poetry, Short Prose and Walking.
Now that the Top 5 limericks have been announced, let us move on to the Week 25 Challenge.
The prompt for this week’s challenge is ‘Humor’ this means that your limerick should be humorous. Write the limerick in any way you did like so long as it tells a humorous/funny story.
For those who are new to the challenge, here are the rules:
- Each week, a prompt theme will be provided and participants are to use this prompt as a base for their limericks.
- This challenge will run from Friday to Friday, and you may link up your Limerick anytime during these specific days.
- All Limericks for Week 25 Challenge are due in latest by 5PM EST on Saturday, June 25, 2016. After the deadline, the link-up button will not accept any more submissions.

Finally, here is my take on the prompt:
This time, I am really keen
Over a week, to keep this house clean
When from one side I start
The other side falls apart
OK, for this, I need more caffeine!
Great limerick! Good luck with the cleaning 🙂
Hahah! Thank you! 🙂
Many thanks for the Second Place. The prompt, “Once Upon A Time,” took me back to my teaching days and the little kid, who was so concerned about me falling on the ice. This was one of my most precious memories. 🙂
You are most welcome, Ranu! Your memory of that experience made a lovely limerick! 🙂
Congratulations to all the winners of mind and life matters week 24 limerick challenge. 🙂
Thank you so much for including me in the top 5!
You are most welcome! 🙂
Wonderful limerick, I can really imagine how it makes one feel. 🙂
Hahaha…thank you, Ranu! 🙂
Congratulations to the Top 5. Great entries one and all!
Thank you, Peter! 🙂
Excellent! OK so here’s a clean joke, actually a riddle. What’s the opposite of outstanding? Give up? The opposite is – inside sitting down! Corny I know.
Hahaha….Nico! That was a good one actually made me laugh! 😀
It is an interesting problem that you mentioned in your limerick of how to get motivated to clean the house. What motivates me is to find out that one of my relatives who doesn’t stop by often is planning to visit.
My problem is mainly about keeping it clean after I finish cleaning! While I clean from one side , my son starts messing up from the other! 😀
Having visitors is definitely a reason to start cleaning the house!
Such a wonderful limerick about cleaning your home,
though I don’t know what makes a great poem,
when you mention coffee, caffeine or latte,
it brings a huge joy into my day.
Well, you made this comment into a wonderful poem! 🙂
Great to be participating after a long break..! I really liked your Limerick, though my mother could relate to it better than me..!
Here’s my entry..!
Rashmi, love your housecleaning limerick. You’re a winner! Throwing in my hat with this limerick about poor Timmy. Fun to write.
