An Elf Named Rose - Christmas Limericks for Kids

There once was an elf named Rose
Who liked to wear ribbons and bows
And she like to make noise
When wrapping the toys
So she wore jingle bells on her toes.

Scrooge was a grumpy old fellow
Who was prone to scream and to bellow
When he heard on that day
What the ghosts had to say
He softened, and grew much more mellow.

By cleaning the beast
And plucked each and every last feather.

The bird in the oven.

For to kiss underneath it is jolly."

Whose gobble they heard
So they readied, they aimed, and they shot 'em!

Or be made a potato chip, wavy.

Or you could just go ask Paula Deen!

Shopping on Turkey Day stinks
Can't we survive

If we respond to the ads like a sphinx?

A change you will see
Like boxers, their fists they will fling.

Ohio State Versus Purdue - A College Football Limerick

We'll see what the Bucks can do
This week when they play at Purdue
With Miller and Hyde
On the offensive side
Points they'll score in a slew.

On D, I have a concern
That our boys continue to learn 
Their covers and gaps
And then just perhaps
Another green leaf they will earn.

You'll forget what you've done
And grumble and grouch as of yo'er.
