Join Diane, MotherOwl, Mimi and me as we put our humour into verse. You can play, too -- just leave your poem in the comments or post on your own blog; if you do the latter, please leave a comment so we can find you.
Use the topic or feel free to choose another; the object is to have fun and use our gray matter.
Whew! This topic was a big challenge for me. I'm terrible at remembering jokes, so first I had to find a joke. Then, of course, came the wrangling of the joke into poem form. The result is less than stellar, but with the deadline approaching I decided this was likely as good as it was going to get! I hope the funny below will explain it if it isn't clear. Because that's where I got the joke from in the first place :)
The Limerick, She Limps Along
There once was a cat from Black Forest
Who ran home with a new-bought thesaurus
But his heart quickly sank --
All the pages were blank! --
And he'd no words to say just how sore he was
Next week's topic is ........ YOUR FAVOURITE DRINK ........Good luck, and may the upcoming week find you never at a loss for words :)
Bonus funnies! I've been collecting lolcat puns and silly jokes for awhile now; enjoy!
And so must I 😁
Ba dum dum dum.
Hardee har har.
Love your poem - and your funnies.

hope weather is lovely and peaceful at you corner my friend
wishing you all the love ,health and happiness !
Hehe. That was well done :D
Love them! The poem and the funnies.
Your poem, Jenny, perfectly matched the the picture and both were delightful. Your funnies are always funny and since I often read Blogger in the early AM, your posts start my day off with a smile.
Points for creativity, absolutely! I love that you could make a little rhyming limerick out of a LOLCatz!
Writing poetry is a good challenge. We must follow a form and say something . I always had my students do a poetry writing exercise. I hope they kept their poems.
That was clever, turning it into a Limerick.
Thanks for the funnies, stress relief for a busy Monday.
Thanks, EC :)
That is funny about your one joke that you keep telling - I have one joke I always tell, too, and I get the same reaction! ha ha
Thank you for your good wishes, baili - same to you!
Thank you, MotherOwl - I am not happy with that last rhyme but couldn't think of anything else :)
Glad you liked them, River :)
That makes me happy, Arleen! Thank you.
It feels like I was being a copy cat, though . . . lol
It really is a challenge, you're right. Good for the brain. I bet some of your students, at least, kept those poems.
Thanks, Mimi - I'm glad you enjoyed them!
Limerick was a good way to go! Have a great week!
Thanks, Marie - you as well!
I know one joke. I've known it for years. It's my go-to joke. I like your limerick and all the funnies.
Same here, Janie - it's like my brain can't hold more than one joke! lol
Hahaha, thanks for the laughs today I really needed them. I can never remember jokes but one of my favourites is:
"I had to get rid of the vacuum cleaner. All it was doing was collecting dust."
Ha ha! I love it! And glad you had a laugh here today :)
I forgot it was Monday!
I, too, like your poem.
My brother was a biker, and that's both where I heard and what I feel gives me the authority to tell this joke:
Q: What's the difference between a Hoover and a Harley?
A: The Hoover has the dirt-bag on the inside.
-Doug in Oakland
Ha ha! That's what happens when you're retired :)
Ha ha! Yes, that's the kind of joke only an insider is allowed to tell! Thanks for telling us, Doug :)
Love it LOL!
Another good effort, this time for something to rhyme with thesaurus.
Thanks, e :)
It was a tough one, Andrew. I still can't think of a good final line, so that will have to do!
Great work with a tough topic. Very well done! ;) And I love your funnies! Where do you find them?!
Now you've got me thinking of words rhyming with thesaurus. I'll be like a dog with a bone for the rest of the day.
Thank you, O Poetry Master (Mistress?)!
Most of the funnies come from this site:
I check every day and take the best ones :)
If you come up with anything, PLEASE let me know! I know of rhyming words, just not ones that let me tell the punch line of the joke - ha ha
What are you talking about? I think your poem is fantastic! And adorable!
Limericks are my favourite form of poetry, and I love yours! I'm still chuckling. (And the LOLZ made me LOL, especially the ether/oar situation!) :-)
Well, good :D And thanks!
Thanks, Dawn - I'm going to have a swelled head :D
A wonderful post, jenny_o. Loved the poem and all the animal jokes and puns. It was tough but alpaca my bags was my favorite.
LOL, I get the joke. I’m notoriously slow at getting the joke but yours works nicely!
Glad you liked them, Mr. S!
It's more of a writer-type joke, isn't it? lol
Hahahahahaha, wonderful! I stole several of your memes.
Steal away; I did! Thanks for dropping by, Debra :)
