This man’s in a bit of a crunch.
Too quickly he bragged to this bunch
That in a very short time,
He’d make dinner sublime.
Let’s just hope they all ate a late lunch.

Honorable mentions

“There’s nothing to it!” He’d boast.
He’d be both the chef and the host.
But now is the hour,
He’s waist-deep in flour,
And his poor guests may have to eat toast.

—Ruby Denton, Indianapolis, Indiana

The boss is over tonight,
Expecting a gourmet delight.
Bob’s got the notion
He’ll get a promotion,
So he’d better get this meal right!

—Robert M. Dillow, Bel Air, Maryland

  1. Wow, I think that Bob Dillow is awesome! He should write more limericks. I thought he was from Bel-Aire, Maryland.

  2. The Nov/Dec 2010 Limerick Contest has the same picture that appeared months ago. Also, I don’t remember ever seeing the July/August 2010 picture. Maybe I
    missed an issue, but there is no doubt about the duplicate mother/daughter picture.
