Limericks by Strat

While listening to the show yesterday,
They reviewed Fifty Shades of Grey.
Matt didn’t find it a thriller.
He found it rather vanilla.
Which I didn’t expect him to say.

We thought we’d do something real smart,
A high-brow, intelligent part.
We wanted a section,
That was utter perfection.
But we got Strat and Alex do Art.

When Matt’s recording, sat on his tushy,
There’s something you can’t, but he can see.
If you hear him mutter,
Or stumble or stutter,
He’s distracted by Ellie’s pussy.

 

Limbericks by Alex

Two jokers attempting to art
Its hard to tell them apart
Laughing and playing
Don’t know what they’re saying,
I’m just glad I’ve not used the word fart
The Matt Boothman film review
Fancy a listen? Pull up a pew.
This man knows words in a way thats absurd
So much its hard to eschew
Working alongside a cat
Can be hard, there’s fairness in that.
This fluffy ball of fur does more than just purr,
She also eats loudly, the twat.
I’m not an old man from Kent
My nose isn’t terribly bent
These Stereotypes are silly and shite
And not at all what is meant
Tentatively approaching a task
Trying not to get caught up too fast
Being tactful and deft wanting emotional heft
But knowing its already been done in the past
