Business Meeting, Wedding, and Classroom Behavior(Limericks)

Updated on July 1, 2012
Source

Some of life's hardest questions have been asked over the years, many of which have been unanswered. This truth makes me want to run into my closet with a box of tissues(probably Kleenex brand, because they are the softest and most durable) and weep for hours on end! What are these questions that have remained such a mystery? Here are some examples. What should you not do in a business meeting? What will get you fired in a heartbeat? Or, what would cause the bride-to-be at a wedding to become angry and want to hurt you? What about those things you shouldn't do in the classroom when you think the teacher is not looking? These questions and many more have been kept secret and the answers are probably found buried in some treasure chest(perhaps even the one in the Pirates of the Caribbean Movies...) So, I will attempt to answer these questions for you in the form of Limericks. Hopefully this will prevent you from having to travel to some fictional island and hunt down a non-existent treasure box.

Business Meeting Rules

Please don't pretend to be a sire

Never fall asleep or act tired

Don't answer a call

Or jump off the walls

Unless you do want to get fired

Source

Wedding Protocol

Don't yell that The Redcoats are here

Or blast music from Britney Spears

During the shared vows

Bride will have a cow

And then she will run out in tears.

Classroom Manners

Don't arrive fashionably late

Or try to pick up a hot date

Don't fake being sick

And don't write Limericks

Or the teacher will be irrate

      Can a cow fall asleep at the wedding cuz it's exhausted from writing wedding limericks? I guess if we can't find you, we'll know to look in your closet, huh? Just follow the trail of used tissues. VUM.

      Josh another great hub. Believe me when I tell you I have found my past students doing some many different things they shouldn't have while I was teaching. Voted up and shared too!

      You are already getting better at these; this group was much better than the first attempt. Great job!

      I'm a different teacher, though, Josh...don't mind the limericks at all (as long as they're for homework.) These are great! Voted up.

      Josh - This was written with too much first hand knowledge I suspect! Blasting Brittany Spears should be banned at more than just weddings!

      Josh - great sense of humor. I always know I'm going to walk away having enjoyed a good laugh.

      Keep writing them and I''ll keep enjoying them.

      Thanks friend.
