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.

What's the matter with these horny Greeks?
On bottles, bananas, and leeks...
For she knew the great urgency
Calls made with urgency
Was escaping through holes in his cheeks.
There was a comedian named Gobel
With a reputation that's global.
And the only thing sure
The ones with a lure...
And away they went in that sleigh mobile.
Lady Deborah Dinwiddie Duff
And I promised I'd never be rough.
To stash the full sum.
Don't you dare remove. Yum!
Ten does it. Don't ride in the buff.
A modest young maid of New Hall
The trainer of tigers named Paul.
This could mean "full of fact"
At times he did act
But of real reform, none at all.
To the Chosen I bid hearty mozel tov!
For Bush's agenda he strove.
Because the young fellow
A coward. Quite yellow.
(But I saved on the gas for my stove.)
There was a fruit peddler of Buckingham
Whose privates weren't worth a goddamn.
And she thinks little Huey
Beta Google was screwy!
Marge lets Norah see Sharon's telegram.
My first term in the Senate will be
"The world's first PALINDROM!", said she.
Of a girl for a screw.
A breathtaking view.
You might not have any fore-skin-ski!
I cut me a sweet one last morn...
And beat it till tattered and torn.
The men on the ground
Or IT will be FOUND
I'm getting a regular horn...
I went out, intending to score.
Husband Tom, in their bed with Lenore.
To give a reaction
I'll get satisfaction
That I gag for five minutes or more!
The old folks don't like "privatize"
To take a breath and TEMPORIZE
We say thanks a bunch
You know that I've got a hunch
And with graft and greed aggrandize.

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.
