Planet Bling

Image by Idea go via

A woman who felt she'd been had
looked down at her ring and was sad.
They'd found one bigger,
not with a digger.
Now planet bling is the most rad.

Come read the entries.  You'll laugh, not scoff. 


  1. That woman must be a little glad
    As her finger would be quite sad
    If that planet was on it
    Because it be squashed a bit
    And she curse some poor lad

  2. Haha. That's part of why she's sad! She can never have the diamond most rad. :)

  3. Bling is the thing, eh? Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thanks for the great post :) Cute!

  5.'s all quite mad:)

  6. No WAY -- that IS rad.

    And funny, my daughter asked me earlier, rhetorically, if maybe hte biggest gold nugget is still undiscovered. This post makes me think maybe there is a whole gold planet somewhere. Hey -- why not?? the Universe is freaking amazing.

    @Brian - I imagined someone trying to carry it on their finger and causing QUITE a stinger, and a fracture or sprained "ringer". :)

    @Kim - Thanks! I live in a town that has plenty of examples. :)

    @Other Mary - I like a little bling too, but nothing THAT big for me. :)

  16. I <3 limericks! Thanx for the smile ;)

  17. Nice one Rachel. Not always easy to get the scanning right, but you've done so admirably

  18. Well darn, I didn't even think about writing a limerick. This was a lot of fun. My diamond is the size of a Horton's Who planet.

  19. @Debbie Dawnslight - Thanks for visiting! I'm glad the limerick made you smile. :)

    @Peter Goulding - Yeah, it's tough to scan a picture of a planet, but years of practicing magic made it all possible. :)

    @The Bug - Hehe. The size of a Horton's Who planet. Good one. :)

  20. we can't have everything, and somehow, as obvious as that is, we become most disappointed not to possess things we never really can. that's what your words say to me:)

  21. @Ed Pilolla - I like that you see that. It is quite true. :)

  22. I think her fiancee will be working for the rest of his life to pay that little bit of bling off! :)

  23. @Margaret - LOL. Yes, he'll definitely be paying for a while. :)

    @Farfalla Dreams - Hehe. Bling, bling to you too! :)

  24. Great poem. Made me laugh :)

  25. Thanks for visiting, Jack! I'm glad I could make you laugh. :)
