From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
There once was a lady named Jill
Yet the battle for office still rages
McDonalds? Too expensive a dish.
A bubble-gum addict named Joan
In all of my eyes, the true hate shows.
Osama! Osama Bin Laden!
There once was a man from Iraq
A young lady from Cincinnati
They say that a limerick a day
The daring young fag from Atlanta
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.
