From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
A SCHMENDRICK in search of a wife
Young Robinson Crusoe would laud
The user of one simple "u"
It seems Tom was right all along
There was a young lady from Harrow
A little boy sitting in school
An educated plumber from Rye
At tea once a TIMOROUS toad
So where is the lovely Michelle?
A mausoleum stood in the center
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.
