Limericks are 5 line poems, usually racy. Here are some about the lady from France.

There is a young lady from France

Who's given to not wearing pants.

This gross impropriety

Is abhored by society,

But at least she's not bothered by ants.


There is a young lady from France

Who cannot abide wearing pants.

You really can't tell

Except when she, well,

Does an over-exuberant dance.


There was a young lady from France

Who always refused to wear pants.

Her nickname was Cindy,

And when it was windy

Folks glanced at young Cindy askance.


There was a young lady from France

Who always refused to wear pants.

When quizzed on this lack,

She snarled, "Can the flack!

My figure they do not enhance."


A pretty cheerleader from France

Will not wear her uniform's pants.

She said, "This is slick,

When I kick it's a kick,

The guys give me many a glance."


A mini-clad lady from France

Would never take time to don pants.

The men loved to stare

When she sat in a chair;

They always drew straws for the chance.


A young lady golfer from France

Can never be bothered with pants.

When she putts on a hill

The men get a thrill

Unless she maintains a closed stance.


There was a young lady from France

Who couldn't be bothered with pants.

When out exercising

With moves mesmerizing

She put all the guys in a trance.


A young majorette fresh from France

Would not wear her uniform's pants.

She'd draw, when performing,

Such crowds, even storming,

They roped off the streets in advance.


A medieval lady from France

Was daring enough to wear pants.

A knight named Sir Faust

Said, "I'd ask you to joust,

But I see that you don't have a lance."


There was a young lady from France

Who had an aversion to pants.

She said, "It sounds daft,

It's cold in a draft,

But I hope it will lead to romance."

Those are brilliant limericks on the ladies from France. Loved them.
Could not help writing this after reading your brilliant ones.

A sweet old lady from France
Was in the middle of a solid romance.
Her dancing shoes she strapped,
But her boyfriend she slapped
When he stepped on her toes in a dance.

I love limericks. I think these are great... ...and all of my extended family is from France actually. Thanks, Alan. Love and peace to you,

An excellent trek into hilarity, Alan. An enjoyable read ... still laughing at the prospect and the mind pictures you've created.

a very busy young lady indeed,
this lady from France;
great rhythms, Alan, and totally
in the spirit of the form.
