From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
A flatulent Cockney named Billy
Oh pity the innkeeper's plight
The Bureau of Customs has moot
"Dear, we're married and now we should say"
A sickly young fellow named Claude
The mortician said, "I know what's best."
A guy who would not run with women
A well-built young fellow named Buck
No wonder a sign has decreed
"Dinner? Your place? How romantic!"
New limericks are generated every five minutes. You can get six a day by following @DadaLimericks on Twitter. Or, take it highbrow.
Rhymes are calculated using the CMU Pronouncing Dictionary. There are 1155 distinct sounds for the "A" rhyme and 1035 for the "B" rhyme.
