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.

Okay. If you sign a receipt
Some shrapnel had blown off his meat.
And died in the fray
Although I might say
And cause them to shun fumbling feet.
Disassembling your code, I concede
That money will serve as the seed
One said, "Isn't the hunt"
Could do many-a-stunt.
After that, there's no longer need.
This pill makes me harder down there.
A calling that I do not share.
And if I show my wares
That trending prepares
"That's when Mexicans shoot in the air."
There was this odd programmer guy
Who worked out the value of pi.
But you could pretend
Aunt Sylvia will spend
With his ego as big as the sky.
'Twas a trait of small Thomas Love Peacock's
Where daddys for daughters use padlocks.
Now I don't mean a fruit
On a beat-up old lute.
Though oft we're not so heterodox.
That wimp of J. W. Bush
May have given these fellows a push.
"If you're offered a buck"
While at Nice to be struck
From slashing a gash on her tush.
I dreamed I patrolled Harvard Square
No language-type barriers there.
So on her I pounced
"Just how is it pronounced?"
And my girl up and left me. Not fair!
What accounts for the popular sale
To tell you an innocent tale
But near to the heart
Easys' that part.
Who was thin and most terribly pale.
Ride me, young thing, I adore
Now bent with your weight and some more!
She said, "Sure, if we're done"
I then had to run
Or your date will go home feeling sore.
I'm old and I'm lonely, but if
Oft joins others at night under cliff.
And his staff she then blew.
As she bid him adieu.
And ferrets it out with his stiff.
