From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
The girl with a body all-right
A young knight met a maid. He did charm her.
To Elizabeth Arden you flee!
A financial advisor in serge
She didn't know how to appease
I am not a big fan of the veil.
There once was a man named McNutt
Just watch those two go to town in
And 'fore you say, "Bet they've got fleas."
The lawyer defending Miss Becker
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.
