CCCXXIX - Proud of a Skill

Mad Kane has a regular limerick challenge.
She provides the first line, the rest is up to us.

 A whale was proud of its skill
To filter the ocean of krill.
It did nothing else at all
Because the things are so small
And took ages for it’s stomach to fill.

A woman was proud of her skill
For maintaining her Venus’ hill.
To assist in the chore,
The perfume was Dior,
But the landscaping came from Brazil.

A fellow was proud of his skill
To give all the women a thrill.
But unbeknownst to him,
When the lights were dim,
A vibrator had a role to fulfill.
