Limericks

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.

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”

There once was a man from Nantucket
Whose dick was so long he could suck it.

While wiping his chin,
He said with a grin,

"If my ear were a _cunt, I could fu<k it."

I couldn't remember the 3rd line so i googled it... wikipedia really does have everything! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There_once_was_a_man_from_Nantucket

OK. Let's have another attempt at an a.cc group limerick. I'll start.

When Plato invented the plate.

I think "and found their pants gone" is how one should phrase that.

Aristotle became quite irate

Quite good. And CGamesPlay are right. The rhythm is important.

The first line doesn't have to end up in a name of a place, but it usually should. But there's a rule that says that if lines 1, 2 and 5 end in a stressed syllable, lines 3 and 4 shouldn't. And vice versa. The former limerick in my first post follows this rule but the latter doesn't.

There once was a man from Belgrave
Who kept a dead whore in a cave.
You might think that's sick
But don't judge so quick;
Just think of the money he'd save.

edit: Try these.
