CCXXXIX - Never Needle a Knitter


Mad Kane has a regular limerick challenge.
She provides the first line, the rest is up to us.
Here are my efforts this week:

A man who was lacking in wit
Needled those who knew how to knit.
He did it too often
Now he lives in a coffin;
The details are in his obit.

A girl who was lacking in wit
Thought a penis was something that bit.
At the end of the night
She exclaimed with delight,
“It’s toothless! But it knows how to spit!”

  1. Cosmos,
    Great contribution. Your limericks and your wit are fantastic. You may have to give some to the dim-witted girl, I mean your wit!

  2. I never know what to expect when I visit your blog and am never disappointed. I love your wit.

  3. They are both very clever, especially the second limerick.

  5. I knit at times. It hasn't occurred to me to poke anybody with those needles though. From now on I might should anybody get on my nerves.

    A penis with teeth .. yikes ..
    She's beyond dimwitted.
