Limerick-Off Monday

Click on the headline for this week's Limerick-Off Monday at Madeleine's blog.

The prompt was "A man/gal who was lacking in wit". I can't say I had much trouble coming up with these limericks, but by the same token I can't say I was particularly thrilled with either. My feeling is that they're adequate, but - oh dear - perhaps somewhat lacking in true wit.

I sincerely hope that my sub-conscious self didn't have me in mind when my conscious self came up with the second limerick! It would be just too much irony to cope with, if this turned out to be autobiographical...

A man who was lacking in wit
Bought a D-I-Y humour kit.
Being a hopeful sort of bloke
He thought he could amuse folk
With his one-size-fits-all joke - the poor twit.

A gal who was lacking in wit
Had just no idea when to quit.
She told her very lame joke
Without fail to the very same folk,
And wondered why they threw a fit.

Really good ones. Keep them going.

By the way I couldn't find that song "Dekha machal ke jidhar" on Youtube - do you have a link?

Anu: The song is "Aaiye meherban" by Asha - sorry, I should have made it clear in my post! :)
