Show us your favorite limericks! These can be the good ol’e boys found just about everywhere or ones you made yourself. Just please be sure to stick with forum rules for rating, thank you!
For those who don’t know what a limerick is, it’s essentially this:
Limericks consist of five anapaestic lines.
Lines 1, 2, and 5 of Limericks have seven to ten syllables and rhyme with one another.
Lines 3 and 4 of Limericks have five to seven syllables and also rhyme with each other.
And here’s an example from the 19th century that’s actually clean:
The limerick packs laughs anatomical
Into space that is quite economical.
But the good ones I’ve seen
So seldom are clean
And the clean ones so seldom are comical.
So let’s see your best (and worst)!
