960 - Don't Make Me Cross!


Mad Kane poses a regular limerick challenge.
The key word this week is ‘ice’.

Don't Make Me Cross!

A fellow with nerves of pure ice,
Was asked by his wife for advice.
His reply was that
“Of course it looks fat”;
His death, while quick, was not nice.

    1. Better to be kept alive...hen pecked and nagged at daily when death as an option would be a merciful release:)

      “Of course it looks fat”;
      He was then hen pecked and nagged at daily when death as an option would be a merciful release and quite nice.

      Need to work on the syllable count.

  10. The Price of Ice (limerick)

    Now she was the one who would use it
    And he was the one who would lose it
    If he knew the price
    Of that piece of ice
    He wouldn’t have let the girl choose it
