Whiny Limerick

Soon, I won't need to start every post with something along the lines of "this summer I missed *** because I didn't have Internet". Tonight, though, I am excited to finally be able to enter MadKane's Weekly Limerick-Off after my summer hiatus.

This week's theme is whining, with the given first line choices being:

"A fellow who tended to whine"


"A woman who tended to whine"

The theme is fitting for me right now, as I feel like three-quarters of all my mental posts are whiny, which is why they are only written in my head at the moment.  Anyway, here is my entry for this week's Limerick-off.

A fellow who tended to whine
Sure his stars would never align,
He'd bitch and he'd moan,
"a dog can't catch a bone"
While buffing his Porsche to a high shine.

I'm not altogether satisfied with this entry; if I come up with something more humorous before the week is up, I'll post it as well.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is great! I am finding myself a bit whiney lately after the ridiculous commutes. I love your humor in this piece. I know people like that! I find it hard to relate to their "complaints".. Have a great day!

  2. Thanks so much for your fun contribution to last week's Limerick-Off. I just posted a new one and hope to see you back. :)

  3. I like the irony. The stars must be aligned pretty well if he has a Porsche to polish :) (Funny how those who have the most- me included- whine the most.)

  4. I love this, Rachel! Thanks for the laugh--I needed it since I'm walking down that whiney path myself today.
