Limerick – Plonker

Welcome to Limerick Mondays! By coincidence, the timing for a couple of prompt competitions falls well with starting the week with a bit of a smile… more limericks to come later today 🙂 This one’s for Esther Newton’s weekly challenge

In England, there’s a bit of a craze
For saying insults in different ways
From plonker to prat to poultroon
Then pilchard to blue-arsed baboon…
Tell me, what’s your favourite phrase?

  1. My favourite would come under the Obscene Publications Act of 1959, so probably best not to mention. In saying that, the fact that there are a slew of people coming away from your posts with a repertoire of never before heard of insults, is hilarious in the extreme.

  2. Here is an Aussie interpretation to add to your artistic gem Al
    Please note in line 3 replace … with “da da three times

    In Australia we call it straight
    yet often a curse will end in mate
    …head …wit … clown
    none of these insults raise a frown
    but abuse one’s dog and you’re tempting fate
