I love limericks, they are very cleverly written poems.

 

Just a few examples:

 

 

A gourmet dining at Crewe

Found a rather large mouse in his stew.

     Said the waiter, "Don't shout

     And wave it about,

Or the rest will be wanting one, too."

 

***

 

There was a young fellow called Binn

Who was so excessively thin

That when he essayed

To drink lemonade

He slipped through the straw and fell in.

 

***

 

 

   'Tis a favourite project of mine,

 

A new value of pi to assign.

I would fix it at 3,

For it's simpler, you see,

Than 3 point 1 4 1 5 9

 

Here are some more!

 

 

 

And a last one (watch out for the pronunciation!!):

 

There was a young lady from Slough
Who one day developed a cough
She wasn't to know
it would last until now
I hope the young lady pulls through!

 

 

Thanks Steve!!

Indeed, I think it will "fox" my students.
