Limericks

The boy's class is doing limericks at the moment. He, or his classmates, have come up with some beauties.

There once was a girl called Mary,
Whose body was incredibly hairy,
She called for a razor,
But should have used a laser,
'Coz she was as hairy as Hairy McLarey.

Ok, I changed the last line for him but it was pretty funny. When we went for a walk the other night he wanted me to make up a couple. So, off the top of my head here's what I came up with.

There was a young girl called Sinead,
Who got blown to bits by a grenade,
There was a great deal of muck,
She was eaten by a duck,
They buried the rest of her in the shade.

There was a young man called Nathan,
He was the bravest man in Bonython,
At the Great Lakes,
He wrestled with snakes,
Until one day he was swallowed by a python.

There was a young boy called Yu-Jin,
Who was really quite nasty and mean,
He'd cut up garden snails,
Mix them with neighbours' mails,
And do burn-outs in his limousine.

I'd like to share one of my favourite limericks that I heard many years ago.

There was an old lady from Kent,
Whose nose was incredibly bent,
One day they suppose,
She followed her nose,
Because nobody knows where she went.

Here's one I made up in year 6;

There was a young man from Spain,
Who went to town on the train,
When he came back,
He was carrying a sack,
Which contained spare parts for his brain.
