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.
