There have been times when our blue-tooth headsets have run out of battery and we’ve been left to our own thoughts … possibly for too long. Here are some of the limericks we’ve created to pass the time, and quiet the voices in our head.
There was a young pianist named Bach
Who lived in the town Eisenach
While others were talking, he liked to go walking
And feeding the ducks in the park.
There was a young woman named Dace
Who lived in a most tricky place
She left in a hurry, but said not to worry
“My friends will be round, just in case”.
There was a young man from Fromelles
Who walked the world’s longest tunnel
When he stopped for a pee, someone said “Gee
You could have just used a funnel”.
While boating one day on Sognefjord
I met a young man from abroad
He yodelled all day at the top of the bay
And never appeared to be bored
The Baltic countries have such a tragic history, we were wondering how the people maintained a sense of humour. Did they have a sense of humour? So Graham googled Latvian jokes. Here are two of our favourites.
What did one potato say to the other potato?
Ridiculous premise. Who have two potato.
Why did the chicken cross the road?
I have not seen chicken since I was very young, on my parents’ farm. This is before the Cossacks slaughtered them. I can still hear screams of sister as soldiers rape her. But back to question, where did you see chicken? I am very, very hungry.
There was a young tradie called Sam
Whose parents were travelling to Flam
They sent an e-letter, but should have known better
Their hotmail was hijacked for spam
While riding the roads of Argyll
So many things make us smile
Red squirrels so cute, and a castle to boot
I think we should stop here awhile.
