From the 95,000 limericks in the Jim McWilliam collection, endless new limericks can be created through Queneau assembly. Here are ten.
If he'd listened in school, then he'd know
A well-stacked stripteaser named Heald
The turbine designed by young Blair
Our C.E.O. was promoted: to rejoice
There were two young ladies of Nice
There was a young sailor named Gore
Disposable condoms? You see?
Not content with the cash that they took
While married to Hillary, Billy
A naughty young lass played the cello.
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.
