4 LIMERICKS

AMISH GIRLS

The Amish girls lived out on farms,
And could never show off their charms.
One day they rebelled,
At their moms they yelled—
“We demand the right to ‘bare arms’!”

9.0 EARTHQUAKE

There was an old fellow named Jake
Who lived through a 9 point 0 quake.
It destroyed his house,
Injured his spouse
The guy never got a fair shake!

*

SPINSTER

There was an old cook from Cape Ann
Who had trouble finding a man.
She looked low and high
To find the right guy,
But always found something to pan.

*

DYSLEXIC PREACHER

A dyslexic preacher from Prague
Sunday mornings went for a jog.
He’d run to his church,
Climb up on his perch—
And proceed to preach about Dog.
