Children In Need Limerick Thread 2010


Recommended Posts

Here we go then. The longest Limerick thread. Can we beat our previous best of 269 posts. Can we do better? Of course we can!!


There are a few rules:


  • Please add a whole verse if you can
  • No bad language
  • you can pledge if you wish per verse, or a lump sum to Children in need
  • you dont have to donate but it would be great if you can.
  • Add as many times as you like but please only one verse per post.


There will be a few FSF 'spot' prizes so lets see how we get on.


Here's the opening verse, courtesy of JacquieL



It’s a fun day so we’d like to plead

That we all try to do a good deed.

We know that we’re dotty,

So lets all go spotty,

And raise money for Children in Need!

And here is the lovely Sue's contribution


Every year there is Children in Need

And the mods have a fine time indeed

This year they're all spotty

And bound to send you dotty

But great fun you must all concede



thanks Sue

and here is my attempt at a limerick.


There was a young bear called pusdey,

Who decided to be a little dotty!

He wore a spotty Bandana,

And jumped up and down on a banner.

Telling the Foundation Stage Fourm

to get theyr money out for me

and don't be soo dotty!



Ah well at least I tried. :o

Now Sunnyday I’d like to say

That I’m glad that you’ve got us underway,

We don’t mind our names

Being altered or changed,

As long as the members will pay!


I don’t expect you all to donate on here by the way but it rhymed :o

I went to the shops earlier today

It really wasn't much out of my way.

I watched the children sing and dance

They happened to be there, just by chance.

I then bumped into Pudsey Bear

Sitting in his spotty chair,

He didn't have a lot to say

But I wanted to help help in some small way.

Then I saw the bucket to drop in my money

Now I'm watching it on the tele, well it is quite funny!

There once was a bear called Blush(er)

Who went to a wedding in Russia

When she got there

A bear showed her her chair

And then she had a crush on the usher!


Okay, this is the combined effort from our family. I think we all need a lie down now. :o

There’s singing, there’s dancing and rhyme

And we’ve all had a really great time

We’ve been in our pyjamas

Eating cheese and bananas

And we’ve set up a Pudsey Bear shrine



(this is a little easier than the quiz!! lol)

I thought I had no tears left

A week of sad soaps has left me bereft

but a few hours of fab kids (sorry dont usually use that word but its fits better than children)

has opened my lids (as in eyes)

and I realise that our nation is the best


Ok its late and I've had a busy week - but I tried!!!

I have to go to bed now

The ale has gone to work

Its made me rather tired

But this task I shall not shirk

The money will go to the bank

To help the kiddywinks

Goodnight to all who stayed and

To the mods I give 'my thanks'.

Mastermind for pudsey Bear

All sitting in the big black chair,

Who will get the highest score

And get to shake Pudsey's paw.



Not good, but trying hard :o

Dipped into the jungle lair

With my favourite Geordie pair

The celebs are so game

None proving too lame

Ah hello, Jenny Eclair!


(good old Sky + - this is multi-tasking taken to extremes here - catching up on the 'jungle', limerick writing (well attempts anyway) and popping on here to post!) :o
