From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
A pernicious old wino from Spain
A nearsighted cleric from Queens
A neuropath virgin named Flynn
A somewhat deaf man of New York
Have you heard of Emrhys, my boy?
High-voltage electrical games
Let us sing of the Masters of War
To the gate of St. Peter came Nick.
A sultry soprano from Chews
I couldn't resist that girl's charm
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.
