    Aye, no sweat. I'm too frickin' senile to compose a good one on the fly these days, so who am I to judge?

    There once was a samurai ghost,
    Who was standing around near the coast.
    He happened to be
    In somebody's selfie
    But he was far too humble to boast.

    Ghost come and go
    And in photos they show
    Little bits of themselves
    Just like the elves
    Leaving footprints in snow

    It's 4am sorry

    One who you thought was fictional
    Was real, but was invisible
    He had a pain in his limb
    But doctors couldn't see him
    That's why he missed on his physical

    I'm surfing the Net. Coffee time.
    What 'likes' did I get? Coffee time.
    Oh, eight? Coffee time!
    That's great! Coffee time!
    The best total yet! COFFEE TIME!

    While I was reading in the Post,
    There suddenly appeared a ghost.
    I wondered if he'd filter out
    The ads I was incensed about.
    I found the answer was - almost.

    A limerick-of-the-day club
    May have the occasional sub-
    Par rhythm or rhyme
    But most of the time
    There won't be a real downright flub.

    You could make a really bad mess
    Of a limerick, I must confess.
    But all being equal,
    And barring a sequel,
    Is it worth it? I would say, "Yes."

    A caveman took his club to a club
    His wife came along with the bub
    At the stroke of midnight
    They started to fight
    Later no rubber dub dub

    I'm thinking five lines at a time
    And everything comes out in rhyme.
    You might have predicted
    That I'd get addicted.
    I'm lucky it isn't a crime.

    I may have already mentioned
    That although I'm well-intentioned
    There isn't any money
    In limericky funny
    And I prolly won't be pensioned.

    So ... are there any unfunny limericks?

    I mean deliberately so, not just bad.

    The format seems to beg for a punchline

    The owl and the pussy cat went to sea
    Said the owl to the cat "I need to pee"
    The cat said "Let's push out the boat
    An when we're afloat"
    In the sea you can pee with glee

    Breakfast time
    Watching QI
    Edward Lear mentioned

    Dinner time, eating chicken mole (not the burrowing animal, but a sauce made with chilis and chocolate and other good things),
    Wondering what QI is, mildly,
    And enjoying the mention of the Mad Mr. Lear. Thanks.

    Mildly explaining Ql (short for Quite Interesting) is a British TV program
    Hard to explain format but if title appears on your TV listings well worth looking at
