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.

During summer I toil 'neath the sun.
Looking up at the shelf is his fun.
Her concupiscent yen
Dig a bigger one, then
And Clinton is under the gun.
Breaking statures, a vandal named Custer
You'll get me all in a fluster.
"A peck on the cheek"
With a rhythm and peak
Reducing organics it can muster.
I went to a horse sale, a farce.
That memory space was so sparse.
Some people did say
To feel good on the day
"At last! Enough core for the parse".
There was a young fellow named Viner
And augur more major than minor.
He remembered, "Oh rot!"
He replied, "I think NOT!"
The next line of a favorite one-liner.
But the Bible says faith is the key
He probed new frontiers with great glee.
Approaching disaster
She was found with the Pastor
A lender nor a borrower be.
The Florida Secretary of State
Whose beau was a spry eighty eight.
I only tell lies
They're really that size?
"It must have been someone I ate."
A misanthrope named Wyn N. Nims
Was given to unnatural whims.
Yet, the fun's there
Henry thinks "Flanders Mare!"
Then sing bawdy lines in the hymns.
Those researching Genealogy
So DENDROCHRONOLOGY
She said, "We've never met!"
And played hard to get.
And was a subject of psychology.
An M.I.T. student named Josh
We are really quite low on the dosh.
For young Chuck is as thick
And opponents he'd trick
And consider studies, just bosh!
There was a young lady named Lottie
Who drove every girl he met dotty.
This fool for her God
When he went for a prod.
For they're black, brown, green-striped and spotty.
