Re: Limericks on swiss life. Make your own !

I wish to register
but have nothing to say.
Asking about salaries
will scare them away.
Brown sugar is boring
and I can't speak Swiss
so I'll start this thread
even if it's hit or miss.

And if I get lucky
and post up to 10
I can sell my old stuff
again and again.

And if I really get lucky
I'll meet here a nice guy
we'll marry and have kids
and post til we die.

Apparently not many who know what constitutes a limerick.

I met once a friendly Swiss fella
Who passed me my first ever Rivella
He said “The secret ingredient
Comes from a terribly obedient
Heifer by the name of Gisella”

There once was an ex-pat from Philly
Whose search for real bleach made her silly.
She searched high and low,
'cross the border she'd go,
and brought it in from France willy-nilly.

Re: Limericks on swiss life. Make your own !

Last one and I'm off to bed.

The peeps from a land known as "Swiss"
Want the world to cease and desist
From getting the name of their place
All mixed up with their race,
"It's Switzer-LAND and my arse you can kiss!"

Re: Limericks on swiss life. Make your own !

Lurkers on forums
Hang out in shame
Can't find a vent
For their emotional pain

In mountain paradise
It's all the same
Creating new problems
To hand out the blame

Perfection is sought
Excuses so lame
You're not a trader
But a banker all the same

Re: Limericks on swiss life. Make your own !

There once were some people who failed
To get what a lim'rick entailed
And so they wrote lines
Of haikus and rhymes
On how UBS got out-bailed

Said the big daft racist named Blocher
To the bloke who controls the soccer
Sepp, come take my hand
And we'll go watch the band
Of the recently crushed Swiss rocker

Re: Limericks on swiss life. Make your own !

I walked into Migros
what did I see?
Fruit Loops on the shelf
with Kellogg's philosophy.

So I bought a box
and read on the back
what vitamins I need
and what vitamins I lack.

I became depressed
ate the stuff in the box
got my daily sugar high
and life no longer sucks.

Landed in Zurich one summer
And I thought leaving Oz was a bummer
Then the skys turned to grey
It was cold everyday
Now Im thinking of doing a runner......

Re: Limericks on swiss life. Make your own !

Poems are tricky for the average bluffer
And funny limericks are another step tougher
So if a witty haiku
Is the best you can do
The rest of us will just have to suffer
