Why I Cried When Wife Left Me (limerick)

Updated on June 2, 2013

My wife ran away with friend Brad

And boy did it make me feel sad

For who would have guessed

The hate she possessed

By taking the best friend I had

      Brad could well find that life isn't what it is cracked up to be now.

      I like drbj's reference to the country song. I have never heard it, but

      would love to hear it.

      Martin, you certainly come up with some good ones. Do you ever sleep?

      One of your best!!

      Funny but not funny. I have know several cases where this has actually happened. But, I enjoyed reading this and had to chuckle.

      Martin - there's a popular country song like that you know,

      'My Wife Ran Away with My Best Friend and I Miss Him So.'

      It received lots of play

      Way back in the day,

      Since so many people could identify with that woe.

      Very funny! It's clever of you to take a situation that (often) has a basis in fact and find the humor.

      Voted Up and FUNNY!

      Funny, but the reality is, sadly, this happens more than one would think it does.

      hahaha, now I am laughing at travmaj's comment.

      I've been at the altar a lot

      Divorced all but one that I got

      But this is a Hub

      That shows you the rub

      Who's crucial and also who's not

      Voted Up and Over. :)
