See if you can solve these limerick style cryptograms.

There is a young admin named Dan,
Who's a really big puzzling fan.
He makes up good posers,
With our other composers,
And is quite a bewildering man.

There was a young lady of Cork,
Whose Pa made a fortune in pork.
He bought for his daughter,
A tutor who taught her,
To balance green peas on her fork.

An elderly man named Keith,
Mislaid his set of false teeth.
They'd been laid on a chair,
He'd forgot they were there,
Sat down, and was bitten beneath.

A painter, who lived in great Britain,
Interrupted two girls with their knittin',
He said with a sigh,
That park bench...well I,
Just painted it, right where you're sittin'

I'd rather have fingers than toes,
I'd rather have ears than a nose.
And as for my hair,
I'm glad it's all there,
I'll be awfully sa(i)d when it goes.

I need a front door for my hall,
the replacement I bought was too tall.
So I hacked it and chopped it,
and carefully lopped it,
and now the dam n thing is too small.

One Saturday morning at three
A cheese monger's shop in Paree,
Collapsed to the ground,
With a thunderous sound,
Leaving only a pile of de Brie. lol

Actually, it was darn - my mistake.

I agree about de Brie, and that was a toughie: well done to Redz for cracking it! praise

Not to forget thanks to you for posting the puzzle.
