Guinness Limerick

by Rachel Hoyt

I used to avoid drinking Guinness.
I felt that it pushed me towards sickness.
Then I learned the Bailey's trick.
Irish Car Bombs go down slick.
Now I just worry about being witless.

  1. Ha! I love it!

    I do *not* love Irish Car Bombs, though - bleh. :)

  2. ahhhh! Guinness.... With baileys you will explode babe!

    Cheers for real A

  3. I prefer my Baileys in a cake
    with some Irish coffee or maybe a shake.
    let me give you some advice
    you can't just eat one little slice,
    and too much cake can be a big mistake!

    Happy St. Patricks Day Rachel! :)

  4. @Trisha - Shots of whiskey it is! :)

    @AJ - LOL. This type of bomb doesn't explode, but is still quite dangerous!

    @Wanda - Cute, cute, cute! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too! :)

  5. Oh gotta try this one. Guinness gets to me too ... Thanks for the good advice - very good advice indeed : )

  6. I remember one night when I had to much too drink, my actions then nearly got thrown into the clink. I was granted bail as long as I went to see a shrink, a long red haired Irish number with a comfy sink (Wink, Wink)

    At some point I must have fallen, because my head was lumpy and my jaw was swollen. She waived the bill and sent me home, and when my wife asked me questions I told her I had tripped over some pub's faulty Blarney Stone.

    Thank you Detroit! Goodnight!

  7. Still in good form I see, Rachel :)

  8. @Kriti - Be careful!!! The Irish Car Bombs are yummy, but I wasn't kidding about the witless thing... :)

    @Atypical Scott - Hehehehehehee. LOVED your rhyme. Did your wife really believe that faulty Blarney Stone stuff? Gee she's gullible. :)

    @Simon - Long time no see! Thanks for stopping by...

  9. I wanna be witless for a while - please please

  10. Hehe. Ok Kriti. :) Consider yourself warned!!! :)

  11. Thanks Madeline! You write more limericks than anyone I know. :)

    1. I have grown to like dark beers but still am not a fan of Guinness unless it is in 'car bomb' form. Sorry.


Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
