Word of the Day

Tuesday, November 3, 2009


I don't know about you, but I'm already planning my Thanksgiving, since I'm having about 14 for dinner. So since my mind is already on that theme, let's do a Limerick! Anything goes, and you don't have to stick with a Thanksgiving theme if you don't want to. I'm going to make it harder and only give you the first line. Here's your opening line:



  1. There once was a turkey from Texas
    who wound up with too many exes.
    They took him to court
    Where they sued for support,
    So he ended up selling his Lexus.

  2. There once was a turkey from Texas,
    whose computer was filled with some hexes.
    He tried hard to decide
    And then went inside
    Texas Tech to see what the tech says.

  3. dang...is there a harder word to rhyme with than Texas? ;)

  4. There once was a turkey from Texas
    whose friends said, "You're trying to vex us!
    It's that time of the year; and the swine flu is here. Move that piggy before he infects us!"

  5. There once was a turkey from Texas
    That, now cooked, has a way to perplex us.
    For our hearts they do burn,
    And our stomachs do churn,
    As they flex and reflex what now wrecks us.

  6. There once was a turkey from Texas
    who got caught in the battle of sexes.
    On the day of Thanksgiving
    Only hens were left living.
    Are we turkeys? Cuz this sure reflects us!

  7. Ok, I'm waiting to see if there's anyone else out there who wants to play? Come on! We want everyone to try! :0)

  8. I'm sorry, Nene, but I don't think I can do this one. I tried, but Lexus was already taken and I couldn't think of anything else. So, go ahead and move on without me.

  9. You know, "us" isn't the only thing that rhymes.... some used "es". Just a hint. :0)

  10. So before I declare a winner, you have to endure my stab at the Limerick:
    "There once was a turkey from Texas
    Now has muscles he continually flexes
    But we think he is bold
    He will never grow old
    So his actions, they do quite perplex us!

    You're right, Texas IS hard to rhyme! :0+

    Since it has been a week since I first posted this, I will go ahead and declare a winner.
    First let me tell you that I really enjoyed reading everyones Limericks! They were quite funny! But I have decided that I am going to go with Mr. Giggles on this one! Once again, I had to go with the one that made me laugh the most out loud! Congratulations Mr. Giggles! You are the winner of this round! Woot! Woot!
