From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
This opera is gradually sapping
A cowboy both silent and shy
And then there's the one of Bob Dole
No one knows - but the common report is
There once was a gourmet whose waffle
Now Adam, mistakes you will make
A snoose chewer needed to spit
I approached and I said, "Will you hear"
Young Boris, her pimp, was a stud
At the gym, brawny Walter won't wear
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.
