Loved it! 😍

Lotsa Limericks is Lotsa Laughs and certainly recommended if you're looking for something quick & light

Synopsis

Limericks are lotsa fun and this book is full of limericks to make you smile and/or laugh out loud. They have a rhythm to them which adds to their charm. The book covers a wide variety of themes.

Some of the titles are:

Blub-Blub
Fiddlin’
Helping Her Up

I guarantee you, it is hard not to smile. Happy reading!

A limerick is defined as a humorous, frequently rude, verse of three long and two short lines rhyming aabba. You may have heard, 'There once was a man from Nantucket...' Well, Lesli Johnson tries her hand at these funny little verses and hits the ball outta the park. It seemed like a lot were about falling down, or maybe that is just the ones that I related to the most. If you're looking for something humorous and will give you a big laugh or maybe just a chuckle and is a quick read, I can't recommend anything more than Lots Limericks. It's very short, a very quick read and very entertaining. Each limerick is also written in a different font within the book which adds another layer of "whimsy". Limericks are in alphabetical order, so go in order or use the Table of Contents to pick one that's title seems to match your mood. You can't go wrong, no matter how you choose!


I love that this is such a quick read, but if you're looking for a quick pick me up each morning (or evening!) you can easily just read one a day until you finish the book! It'll keep you entertained for a couple of months that way!

Lotsa Limericks



A Flop


Baby boy knew how to be loud.


His cry was far above the crowd.


Mother was a flop


at making him stop.


So she joined him and cried aloud.



Betty’s Girl


Betty was a big teddy bear.


She lived with a girl with red hair.


They danced round and round


till Betty fell down.


Then Betty’s girl left her right there!



Blub-Blub


Before I knew it, he jumped in.


The water was up past his chin.


He then said “blub-blub”


and sank like a sub.


Then, to my chagrin, I jumped in!



Busy Brain


My busy brain won't let me sleep,


so I count some fluffy white sheep.


The noise that they make


keeps me wide awake.


And my busy brain shouts “bleat bleat!”



Can’t-be-One


When I’m writing a poem today,


I’ll be most careful what to say


because if I’m not


I’ll find that I’ve got


a “can’t-be-one” to throw away!



Fiddlin’


Frankie loved to fiddle round town.


He was great till it made a sound.


It would make a squeak,


followed by a shriek.


No fiddlin’ ability found!



Front of the Line


The front of the line I need Now!


Why are you ahead anyHow?


I want badly to rush


but I’d be quite crushed.


So, I’ll kinda-sorta slow down!
