Three kinds of limericks

Postby nikita » Mon Jun 26, 2006 9:27 pm

Hello,

It is said that there are three kinds of limericks:
- the limericks that you can recite in the presence of women and clergy.
- the limericks that you can recite in the presence of clergy but not women.
- and real limericks.

Well, here is a limerick for you that you can recite in the presence of women and clergy. According to the definition, it is not a real limerick, but it is still very nice.

There was an Old Man on a hill
Who seldom, if ever, stood still

He ran up and down
In his grandmother gown,

Which adorned the Old Man on a hill.


Have a nice day! :)

Nikita

A limerick from Edward Lear’s Book of Nonsense

Hello,

It is time for another limerick written by Edward Lear.

There was an Old Lady of Chertsey,
Who made a remarkable curtsey;
She twirled round and round
Till she sank underground,
Which distressed all the people of Chertsey.


Have a nice day!

Nikita
