A Few More Animal Limericks

Updated on February 13, 2012

Were You Ever Annoyed By Commercials?

Two gorillas were watching TV.

Said the one, "That is something to see!

It can grate, chop, and slice

For one very low price

And for $9.99 you get three!"

More Hamsters

Once a hamster with food in its cheeks

Went missing for two solid weeks.

From a hole in the wall

There proceeded to crawl

Six more furballs with pert little squeaks!

Scary Cat

Once a cat who was stuck in a tree

Scared the farmer as much as could be

On his hat, in the dark

Fell a loose piece of bark

From a perch that the man couldn't see!

(P.S. This one really happened!)

Eau Perfume

Once a bulldog that slept near a trunk

Was sprayed by a neighboring skunk.

He wilted the flowers

Till multiple showers

Reduced the amount that he stunk.

Itsy Bitsy

Once a spider determined to climb

Could never get out of the slime

For the water came out

From the spigoted spout

And it knocked him to earth every time.

Piggy's Thirst

There once was a piggy who ate

A hole in the fence by the gate

He went out for a run

Till his time in the sun

A great thirst for his trough did create.

Primal Art

Once a monkey who lived in the zoo

Was bored and had nothing to do.

Made an art institute

Using paint made from fruit

And taught culture and etiquette, too!

      Limericks were a lot of fun in English class as a pre-teen. I liked your $9.99 piece the best because every time I see any commercial that gives a price and then says, "but wait, for a limited time offer, you can get two for the same price!" Thanks for your hub.

      As a kid I would read limericks over and over again and tried to make up some of my own. They never seemed to be as hilarious or as clever as the ones I read though. These were great and I enjoyed going down memory lane :)
