From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
Her drawers she was putting a patch on
The problem (if problem it is)
I re-read old Archie's sex rhymes.
An old politician with guile
An ugly old duckling from Niles
Euripides played in the shed
At a dance, a gay lost his shoe.
Falling bombs, screaming and hell-bent
Beastiality's a sin--that's emphatic!
Ring! Ring! There goes my phone.
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.
