From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
Your Honor,...the dirtiest trick!
The sight of Death Row makes one numb
Marshmellows, I thought at first glance
Merely sighting the tits on Miss Slattery
I wonder about old man Marden
One brief bout of passion, once done
Lewinsky of Beverly Hills
A starving Red Indian Chief
My mind's in a terrible fog.
Albert Gore remarked, "What can I say"
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.
