A limerick is a funny, five-line poem popularized in Irish pubs in the 1800s.
In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel wrote these beach limericks for you –
There once was a surfer named Dave,
Who went looking for the perfect wave.
But, just when he found a winner,
A whale ate him for dinner
And Dave’s surfboard was all they could save.
There was a young lady who went to the ocean.
She sat on the sand and put on her sun lotion.
But, her yellow bikini
Was incredibly teeny
And this caused a major commotion.
There once was a surfer girl named Jasmine.
Like a magnet, she attracted all the men.
When she went out to compete
In any surfing meets
It’s so crazy how she always would win.
There once was an arrogant surfer dude,
Who would hog all the waves and act rude.
He’d steal waves away,
Keeping the angry surfers at bay,
Until they realigned his attitude.
There was a shapely lady named Beulah,
Who could really shake up the hula.
The men would all gather
And get into a lather
And Beulah would rake in the moola.
For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way –
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Sunny & Patti
