Jest for Pun logo  Classic Limericks

There was an Old Man with a beard
Who said: 'It is just as I feared!
Two Owls and a Hen,
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard.'
~ Edward Lear 
The Reverend Henry Ward Beecher
Called a hen a most elegant creature,
The hen, pleased with that,
Laid an egg in his hat,
And thus did the hen reward Beecher.
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
A Cockney named I. Asimov,
As his trousers he started to doff,
Said, "Me lydy friends yawn
When I 'as 'em on,
But vistle ven I 'as 'em off."
(By Willard R. Espy)
There was a young lady called Bright,
Who could travel far faster than light;
She set off one day,
In a relative way,
And returned home the previous night.
(By A. H. R. Buller)
There was a young lady of Niger
Who smiled as she rode on a tiger.
They returned from the ride
With the lady inside
And the smile on the face of the tiger.
There was a young maid from Madras
Who had a magnificent ass
Not rounded and pink
As you probably think
It was grey, had long ears, and ate grass.
There was an old man of Peru
Who dreamt he was eating a shoe.
He awoke in the night
With a terrible fright
And found it was perfectly true.
Da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da
Da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da
Da-da-da, da-da-da
Da-da-da, da-da-da
Da-da-da, da-da-da, da-shit!
( From the Crist College collection 1948)
