There is a good man in this town,
But the cold and the snow brings him down,
His memories - the best,
The Dub Irish Fest,
Recalling - he loses the frown.

A Nasty Old Grinch - Christmas Limerick

If he acts like a nasty old grinch,
And the sight of him makes you flinch,
Treat him with kindness,
Perhaps you will mind less,
Though his heart grows not even an inch.

The Reason for the Season - Christmas Limerick

I hope that your Christmas is merry,
And your jolly St. Nick is hairy,
But remember the reason,
for this joyous season,
Is Jesus, and Joseph, and Mary.

Thanksgiving Limericks - The Cost Of Good Living Is Greater

The cost of good living is greater,
Said a gentleman out in Decatur,
When Thanksgiving came round,
On inquiry I found,
He had dined on string beans and potater.

Joe Paterno Limerick

Penn State is led by Joe Pa
The question - what did you know Pa
It is common knowledge
That some in State College
Are pleading, Say It Ain't So Pa

Linus, Sally, and the Great Pumpkin - A Halloween Limerick

Our Linus and Sally did wait
In the patch, for the Pumpkin, Great
But as Sally feared
It never appeared
And a candy-less night was their fate.

Witch's Brew - Vintage Halloween Limerick

Bedazzled by the likes of you

So charmed by all you say and do

On Halloween Day

You blew me away

Heck. . . blame it on the witch's brew!

An Ohio State - Miami Football Limerick

This week the Bucks play the 'Canes
For both - there've been many pains
Folks intelligible
Call this the Ineligi-bowl
Reputations for both - full of stains.

An Ohio State - Toledo Football Limerick

Their hands they keep in their pockets
This team that they call the Rockets
They'll go to the 'Shoe
In their helmets of blue
Watch their eyes pop out of their sockets.

An Ohio State - Akron Limerick

The forecast from this old fan's lips
This week when the Bucks host the Zips
Won't coat it with saccharine
We'll whup up on Akron
Unless our young team gets the yips.

The Day - it's finally here,
The men - they're chillin' the beer,
To fix what is troublin' ya',
Get over to Dublin ya',
The cure - a pint of good cheer!

Here now's a short little tale

Concerning a tasty red ale

The name - it's Killian's

Its fans - there's millions

Buy it where fine beer's for sale.

Uncle Sam - Fourth of July Limerick.

There is now this grand old guy
His birthday's the Fourth of July
His name's Uncle Sam
And he does give a damn
His spirit you cannot deny.

A Dublin Irish Festival - The Tossers Limerick

I really don't care what you thunk
The best bands are Irish and punk
The Tossers, e.g.
Are a band you must see
And it's completely your choice to be drunk.

A Sad, But Necessary Day - Jim Tressel Resigns

The Captain of the Bucks' football vessel,
With his conscience he surely did wrestle,
He did break a rule,
So for the good of the school,
Our coach is no longer Jim Tressel.

A Memorial Day Limerick

We're sitting here tweeting and friending,
So let's just stop all the pretending,
The freedoms we use,
Are easy to lose,
So honor those who've died defending.

SAY IT AIN'T SO JIM! A Jim Tressel Limerick

Some folks think Tressel's a liar,
I say there's smoke and there's fire,
With Herbie now gone,
"For Sale" in his lawn,
Maybe Kirk'll sell his house to U. Meyer.

A Good Friday - Easter Limerick

When the guilt of sin does seize us,
We should turn to our brother, Jesus,
His death on the cross,
Was truly a loss,
But the miracle on Easter - it frees us.

Thad Matta

The Bucks are coached by The Thadness,
He fills the fans with much gladness,
And now starts the journey,
The end of year tourney,
Otherwise known as March Madness.

Dublin's St. Patrick's Day Parade Limerick

Everyone loves a parade,
And the marchers are set and arrayed,
Whether lass or laddy,
They honored St. Paddy,
The crowd?  They all clapped and hurrayed.

There've been ups and downs, it is true,
And it often appears I've no clue,
So just hear me say,
On this special day,
That I really and truly love you!

The Sugar Bowl Promise

Coach Tressel made the Five say
They'd stay if they wanted to play,
The promise, of course,
Coach could not enforce,
But the Five - they decided to stay.

The Whine and Cheese Crowd and Brady Hoke

When they heard that M hired this bloke,
A rube who is named Brady Hoke,
The whine and cheese crowd,
lamented aloud,
Please say this is all a big joke!

Welcome Back Brady Hoke

There once was a team that was broke,
So they hired a coach named Hoke,
But the job gave him pause,
The reason?  Because
The coach before was a joke.

The Sugar Bowl Five Limerick

                           Jim Tressel had something to say,
To  the Five who decided to stray,
To  play in the  Bowl,
Like your friend Brian Rolle,
You  must  now agree that you'll stay.
