Mugged Off #limericks

The prompt is mug

Two goes this time…

An etiquette teacher, quite smug,
Said, ‘One doesn’t drink tea from a mug.’
‘It is clear one oughter’
‘Drink from cup and saucer,’
‘With the milk poured from a jug.’

The radio told me ‘Today’s muggy,’
Which made me come over all fuggy.
But before very long
I knew they were wrong
As today’s not muggy, but tuggy.
(And tomorrow’s wuggy then Thuggy, and fruggy…)

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

  2. Bravo he said with conviction
    This proved to be marvellous diction
    I read it out loud
    Cheered on by the crowd
    I seem to now have an addiction!
