PD222-226. Makes my 2000+ seem paltry

These were lifted from a website claiming to have 95,000 limericks!  I've chosen a few on movies, including authors.

Report on a flick starring Brad:
His acting - incredibly bad;
His lines - mainly dirty,
The ingenue - purty,
The sex scenes - completely unclad.

When his plane hit a storm and crash-landed,
Tom Hanks found that he had been stranded.
All signs pointed toward
Yet another award,
But the Oscars left him empty-handed.

An underwear maker named Kurtz
Said, "One movie with Clark Gable hurts.
When he shows up bare chested,
It's clearly suggested
That he-men don't wear undershirts."

Two critics called Ebert and Siskel
Are giants in film matters fiscal.
If they up their thumbs,
A huge audience comes,
If they down them, a movie may risk all.

    --- Prof M-G

Many Oscar results should be tossed --
The Academy must have been sauced.
Hoffman won the thing twice:
"Rain" and "Kramer", that's nice.
But it hurts that his "Tootsie" role lost.

    --- Larry Hollister


  1. Yes, but your 2,069 were all written by YOU. Love this site!

  2. Thanks much! You must 'surf' via phone, as my StatCounter doesn't show a visitor at 6:49. It seems to only recognize computers -- and not all of them.

    Email me -- -- if you wouldn't mind my knowing your identity.

  3. Where is that site, btw?
