An Old Gourmet Called Lamb - A Vintage Limerick

There was an old gourmet called Lamb
Who indulged in a weakness for hamb;
When they brought him some bacon,
He said, "You're mistaken,
For this stuff, I don't care a damb!"

Is Spring Going To Get Here Or Not - A Limerick

Is Spring going to get here or not?
It's not coming soon as it aught.
We all agree that
This cold needs to scat.
I want to be sweaty and hot!

#TrueTeam - A Limerick

I heard the angelic choirs
Sing when UD beat the Friars.
So let's hear you scream
For the one and TrueTeam
Let's root on our young Dayton Flyers!

Father of Triplets - Vinegar Valentine Limerick

The much-married man should not talk,
At strenuous duties ne'er balk,
When at two in the morn,
He takes his first born
(Whether triplets or twins) for a walk!

The Card Player - Vinegar Valentine Limerick

The card-playing maid is the "limit,"
Her mind's on the cards ev'ry minute;
     If she loses the prize,
     Oh, how deeply she sighs,
"'Tis so awful not to be in it!"

Vintage St. Patrick's Day Limericks -1910 Likewise Limericks

For Saint Patrick, Mike wears a cravat,
Also proves for his saint he stands pat;
For you see at a glance,
At the base of his pants,
Where he wears on each foot a green spat.

The Sportsman - Vinegar Valentine Limerick Postcard

His outfit is quite up-to-date
And his guns of a pattern most late
He is a wonderful sport
Of the deadliest sort
But the rabbits and birds seem first-rate.
