  2. It's a limerick:

    Harlot of Clyde

    There was a young harlot of Clyde,
    Whose doctor cut open her side.
    He misplaced his stitches
    And closed the wrong niches;
    She now does her work on the side.

    There was a young fellow from Clyde,
    who fell down a sewer and died,
    The next day his brother
    fell down another,
    and now they're interred side by side.

    It seems it's a Limerick fest
    Where all of us do our most best
    But some of the jokes
    Not worth pigs in pokes
    So why don't we give it a rest?

    Burma Shave!
  5. Speaking of Limericks, howcome anybody, anywhere, even on TeeVee,
    can say, "There was a young man from Nantucket..." and EVERYBODY
    knows the whole joke, even though nobody has ever, officially,
    said the whole joke, or even acknowledges that they've ever even
    HEARD it?

    There was a young man from Nantucket,
    Whose cock was so long he could suck it.
    He said with a grin,
    As he wiped off his chin,
    If my ear were a **** I could **** it!


    I believe I am now required to pluck out my own eyes.
  6. I read in that Rich Grise <>
    Oh drat! I was going to post what may be the only two stanza limerick
    about the Bishop of Chichester.

    My eldest brother used to write cryptic crosswords for his pub cohorts. His
    favourite clue was "Take heed of sexual deviation", which had a multi-word
    answer (5,2,4,4). The answer, anyone??

    Isn't Winchester Cathedral where they hold shotgun weddings?

    And one which rhymes with Aberystwyth .....

    There was a young man from Aberystwyth,
    who took out his girl to play Whist with,
    Under the table,
    they found they were able,
    to play with the things that they pissed with.

    "There was a man from Nantucket..."
    Who kept all his cash in a bucket
    His daughter, named Nan,
    Ran away with a Man,
    As to the bucket Nantucket.

    It's the cleanest limerick in a book of over three thousand.
  13. Or one where they worship at a spinning round alter.

    OTOH it reminds me of the '60s (New Vaudeville Band).
  14. No one? I've heard thousands of Natucket limericks. A friend even
    knows a clean one or two, which I found amazing. ;-)

    Stand up you bits and stretch out,
    form a line and make a tight route,
    for data to flow
    like neva befo'
    you gotta pack yourself into da house!
  16. The Bishop of Chichester, he
    Made a lim'rick that stopped at line three.
    I don't know the rest...

    Then we have:

    There was a young man from Purdue,
    Whose limericks stopped at line two.

    And, of course, in conclusion:

    There was a young man from Verdun.
  17. Hyperbole. :)
  18. Another young poet in China
    Had a feeling for rhythm much finer
    His limericks tend
    To come to an end
