From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
An unhappy female from Sears
Thank you, you're really quite kind.
There was a licentious Lay Preacher
I hear that your thing is tremendous
Down South there it's not quite the same.
A Pentagon note:--Do not pamper
A sleep-around hussy named Brickle
Young Icarus filled in the cracks
In the fog, a young man of Cologne
There once was a lady called Rose
New limericks are generated every five minutes. You can get six a day by following @DadaLimericks on Twitter. Or, take it highbrow.
