Since I have started using my blog for limericks my wife, Patty, has taken a renewed interest in helping me with topics. Today she sent me this link 150 Funny Words to Say Out Loud – InspireMore with a list of the crazy words we sometime use when we want to lighten up the mood. She challenged me to use some of them in my limericks. OK, she asked for it:
I’ll try my best to not ramble
I don’t want my readers to wamble
It’s not much of a struggle
To rhyme the word puggle
In fact, it’s quite fun when I gambol.
There once was a man who was puzzling
In truth he was truly bumfuzzling
He was kind a putz
Who would constantly futz
The fact is, he needed a muzzling.
He was strange, about that we can’t quibble
With him it was all piffle and bibble
His weak hippocampus
Made life caddywampus
He did nothing but dabble and dibble.
Patty sent me this kit and caboodle
To have stopped her would have been futile
I could have said no
But went with the flow
Since tonight I might want to canoodle.
Haha! Great fun here from Al
Whom I consider to be a pal
Though he’s a Murican
I’m pretty sure he can
Understand this British gal
Of course I understand Tilly
To think not would surely be silly
Though I mispronounce Thames
And other Brit gems
For a pal I can sure piccadilly.
Out-limericked! I cede the floor to the honourable member from Murica 😉
Great fun, Al. ❤
Thanks, Jane. Warmest greetings from across the pond.
Great word fun!
Bravo!!! Well done my friend! Well done.
You always make me smile. Thanks for sharing your creativity and use of new and fun words.

I knew you would enjoy it, Patricia, being a wordsmith yourself. Have a great day.
You’ve outdone yourself this time. Good idea Patty!! Bumfuzzling!!! LOL!!
Thanks, Sarah. This was was truly fun.
Was the man to whom you refer perhaps a politician?
Yes, it could apply to many a snollygoster: “politicians who make decisions for their own personal advancements, even if it means ignoring their principles.”
