Spider Hole

Category: Limericks, Rated G

This limerick, written on the day Saddam’s capture was announced, is by master Punster Gary Hallock.


A tip from an Iraqi fighter
Most likely a Baathist insider
Led troops when they searched
To Saddam, who perched
Right there in the lair of a spider

Arachnid’s a good thing for all
That into a hole he would fall
“The mis-leader, Saddam”
Say gen’ral, “We got’im”
From under Iraq he did crawl

These war games have taken a toll
So this news is good for the soul
His hand poorly played
The King has been spayed
Disgraced like an ace in the hole
