A Short Collection of Limericks

23 pages10 minutes


Limericks have a very definite stanza, which is ‘a group of lines forming the basic recurring metrical unit in a poem’. Limericks also contain a great deal of ‘puns’ which take two forms; ‘The man whose left side was cut off, but he’s all right,’; but alternatively many puns are also mispronounced words, which the author believes are much cleverer.
This small collection amounts to only fifty limericks. The first few a clever but not special, but as you progress to the last page the punning becomes more clever, but keeping strictly to the stanza.
A lot of Limericks are ‘rude’, but in this collection the author has tried to avoid crude words just for the sake of it. Implied passon and rudeness can actually be even funnier .
