DIRE STUFF

I ran across Mad Kane's blog with a humor prompt this week. It's to be a warning or cautionary limerick. While waking up this morning (a slow process) I came up with the following three. Check out Mad Kane

BURST BUBBLE BLUES
You loved your McMansion so neat.
It’s adjustable mortgage was sweet.
Who burst the bubble?
You’re caught in the rubble
And sleeping outside in the street.

CAUGHT IN THE WEB
h TEE t p COlon slash SLASH
On the web net/coms mingle and clash.
Some are wise, some are porn,
Some are old-fashioned corn
And you have to winnow the trash.WHO’S A TERRORIST?
This flight is your highest priority
Yet you share the fears of majority?
The true fright (it’s mine)
Is that long shoeless line
Of passengers queued for security.

The Limericks are really good fun
To chant to yourself as you run
To the shops, you will see...
That you'll then hurt your knee
You'll need help getting home, now your done!

Sorry about that! I LOVE Limericks! Thought these three were very funny!

Hi, I enjoyed these!

Ain't it the truth! Your humor is boundless, yet refined...sort of like a fine wine. :O) So, I read them all and then scrolled back up and what did I see? You smiling in your photo on the sidebar. What fun!
