Limerick Contest

Filed under: Japery — williamthecoroner @ 14:04

It’s that time again, Monday, and time to think of a subject for this week’s limerick contest.  As I just went to a wedding at the primate house–don’t ask the topic for this week is PRIMATES.  Or, if you prefer, PRIME MATES.

Tell me about gorilla your dreams.  Winner recieves a care package sent to a service member of their choice in harm’s way.



  1. On May 28, 1959, aboard the JUPITER AM-18, Able, a rhesus monkey, and Miss Baker, a squirrel monkey, became the first living beings to successfully return to Earth after traveling in space (defined as above 50 mile altitude by the U.S. at the time). They traveled in excess of 16,000 km/h, and withstood 38 g (373 m/s²).

    It’s times to test the arms race
    we’ll have the first monkeys in space
    with just a banana
    a slice of Americana
    Abe and Baker came back to Air Base.

  2. His humor must be Diabolical
    His vision of life; he must think rather Philisophical
    The specimens I have met
    I most often regret
    Are lacking sense that is Economical

  3. The King of the Apes slunk away in the mist.
    What could make Kong tremble like this?
    Sensing a pay day,
    a lawyer for Fay Wray
    Gained an order to Cease and Desist.

  4. There once was a great ape named Harry,
    who was searching for his soul mate to marry.
    He traveled the world,
    visiting zoo after zoo,
    but tearfully cried “They’re too hairy!”.

  5. A Silverback male of his time,
    Made lesser apes lose peace of mind.
    His prospects were good
    with the girls in the hood,
    Who rated his assets as prime.

  8. Intelligent design is the key.
    Said a conservative young man named Lee.
    When Sis married an ape
    All he could do was gape
    An uncle of a monkey I’ll be.

  9. Gorillas seem happy in mist
    But not me; when in mist I get pissed!
    My hair frizzes so high
    That King Kong wants to cry:
    “She’s the one girl I just can’t resist!!”

  10. With knuckles like yours that are draggin’
    You might reconsider your braggin’
    Because even though muscles
    Might attract those in bussels
    Its obvious, in brains you are lackin’
