Drimericks – Man in a Tank

It’s time for another Drali Limerick (Drimerick)! Here’s one about a rather foolish tank owner. As always, it is accompanied by a DraliDoodleTM, professionally drawn by the DraliDoodleTM team.


There once was a soldier named Frank
Who wished to sail off in his tank
The beach was quite sandy
Which turned out quite handy
But on reaching the water he sank.

Man In Tank

    Not the tank I was thinking when I saw the title, but still very good ๐Ÿ˜€

      I’ll see if I can think of one with a fish tank ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you liked it!

    The army really needs to do something about their tanks. What use is a tank that won’t float for goodness sake ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      It’s craziness! Where are the James Bond tanks?

    Ali, Another hilarious post, and illustrated as well. ๐Ÿ˜€ It seems only 007 would be able to get hold of something like a tank that floats. The secret services might already have one that we don’t know about. Well done. ๐Ÿ™‚ —Susan

      There could be secret service tanks ready to float at a moment’s notice ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good one. He should have used one of the old duck boats. They float.

      Those are cool. But he loves his tank.

    Sure, they laugh at Frank now. But just wait until the enemy ship carelessly floats overhead and Frank blows a gaping hole in their bottom with the big gun on his new submarine! He’ll win the highest military honor….. posthumously, of course….

      Won’t they be surprised! Frank and his submatank.

    Aw poor Frank.

    Frank made a underwater seascape, WTG.

      A new playground for all the little fishies.

    Tanks are meant to float (and fly too) ….or so thought poor Frank ๐Ÿ™‚


    • September 7, 2014 at 6:14 am

      It’s a good job he didn’t try to fly it off a cliff ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am thinking this soldiers name could well be Jeremy Clarkson. Would fit Top Gear as an adventure

      It’s the sort of thing he’d try!

      Thanks! Branding is everything in today’s rumble tumble world ๐Ÿ™‚

    That was QUITE a surprise! Fun stuff!


    • October 7, 2015 at 7:21 am

      It came as a surprise to him too when he sank, silly fellow ๐Ÿ™‚
