Dada Da Dada Da Dum

From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.

To beat up the red-coated British
To serve to the people; they're skittish.
The force of the blast
Let the Thrill last
For the tight-fisted rule of the British.
Now hospital doctors must deign
Whose face was exceedingly plain.
She now spends her days
Merely writing cheap plays.
"And he couldn't spell Harry or Jane."
A DIGLOT I knew said, "Among"
Entertain brain, trip off any tongue.
He'd Captain Hook chase.
"No, you'll end in disgrace."
And don't like my bedmates well hung.
Your raspberry nipple's a dream!
Your friendship I'll justly redeem.
They're chosen as scabs
I hear he just grabs
Then fled her perverted regime.
Two bright boffins named Watson and Crick
Was asked what it was that made her tick.
She played Lois Lane
When the Public Domain
And the pus that it leaked, made 'em sick!
The birthday's today -- it's the first
Sydney Harbour, he doubtless conversed
Over Flo 'fore he went
Could pay a years rent..
Is the step we should take if we durst.
Icelanders like to glory in
A tart-eatin' party took part in.
Although it would pale
But kept cool, without fail
If only he know how to get in.
With satellite dishes I'm able
To join the three bears at their table.
"Are you coming?" he cried.
Until you have tried
"At Minsky's was more like a cable."
The old woman who lived in a shoe
Plus Tiddy and John Miller too!
Then, turning to me
"I am coming!" then she
Said old Dunn, "This is my Opus Two."
A young lass was eagerly steering
Lost bowel control in engineering.
And the gush of the flood
Well, I've had it, Bud!
While the birds and the beasts all stood cheering.
