Work Limerick

27 Aug

This limerick probably makes no sense to anyone outside our office, so I will give you some background. A man at our work, who will remain nameless, has a pretty ordinary sense of humour (to be it nicely). Anyway he started telling this Irish joke (which actually had nothing to with him being Irish) regarding a florist. Wasn’t funny the first time and after 10 times it still wasn’t funny. The punch line in the joke has the F word, and if anyone uses that word at work we have to do 10 push ups (sort of similar to a swear jar but with push ups). Anyway here is the limerick I came up for him (to keep with his Irish theme). You have to fill in the last word yourself … not that hard (it rhymes with the first two lines).

There was an old man of luck,
Who told a joke with much pluck.
Any chance through the day,
To our unfortunate dismay.
Laughs, then push ups for saying ____.
