BBQ Limerick Competition

The purpose of the competition is to write a limerick related in some way to BBQ-ing.


A limerick is a 5 line poem of the sort:

"There once was a man from Nantucket

Who kept all his cash in a bucket.

But his daughter, named Nan,

Ran away with a man

And as for the bucket, Nantucket."

Sample Limericks written by CEP:

There once was a woman called Sue

Who liked food from a Barbecue

When the gas ran out

She started to shout

‘It wasn’t my fault, it was you!’

The BBQ chicken looked great.

I put all the bits on a plate.

The kids came along,

and they ate every one.

Not even one piece, I ate.


Uncle Bill grilled some BBQ fish

Then placed them all on a dish

A cat came and ate

All on the plate

Now the cat’s on the grill – What a fate!
