From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
This modest old chap from Helsinki
A penniless co-ed named Horning
There once was a lady named Cleo
That essay by Miss Rose Macaulay
There once was a pedophile gent
The Brit farmer nicknamed "Bone" Marrow
Quite lewdly, a sailor named Bass
Moses ate food from a trough. It
A Cambridge roue could arouse
Republicans, it seems, always knock
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.
