From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
By this time, I'd spent all my money.
On Sundays they capture the air
A lawyer is a beagle
A very fat girl in despair
As part of his schooling, young Kent

There was a young lady of Ealing
An affluent man of great wealth
Without the act of contrition
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.
