Esther’s Challenge – Laugh-along-a-Limerick

Happy Monday to you all and welcome, once again, to Esther Chilton’s regular kick-off-the-week challenge.

Last week’s limericks, based around the one word prompt, GLUM made Esther and me chuckle. See if you can have the same effect on us today with your responses to her latest challenge.

Esther’s one word prompt for our limericks today is SLIP. So, are you able to write a limerick using the word SLIP in it somewhere which will amuse the rest of us?

If you prefer to side-step the weekly prompt, avoiding the SLIP, please feel free to ignore our prompt and write a limerick to suit your current mood and feelings. Just let it flow. Delight us all with your creativity.

Post your submissions in the Comments on this post

  1. One Sunday, twas late at night
    I saw a very strange sight
    A snowman seemed to slip
    I saw his icy body flip
    he was a puddle by daylight.

    Johnstone Boris was smooth and slick
    Always giving his pursuers the slip
    Like a well-oiled otter,
    The dastardly rotter
    Ensured nothing would ever stick…
    (obviously this is fiction I mean ‘smooth and slick’!?)

  3. It was a stupid slip of the tongue
    For which I’ve been unjustly hung,
    Drawn and Quartered
    Basically slaughtered
    Decidedly deep in the dung.

  4. Bony Tony was winning the race.
    He had Carter the Farter beaten for pace.
    But Carter let rip
    Causing Tony to slip
    And cross the line in second place.
