From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
A little four-flusher Miss Ream
A lonely old fellow named Spence
I'll cradle your skin with my hand
The excitable husband in shock
A dignified duchess named Sutter
The Brady girls, taking a chance
A conniving young fellow named Gus
Children and mothers in fright
You are wrong, you abhorrent rejection.
I once met a despondent Canuck
New limericks are generated every five minutes. You can get six a day by following @DadaLimericks on Twitter. Or, take it highbrow.
