John Thorkild Ellison
Limericks Fair and Foul
There was a young woman of Halty
Who complained that her fish was salty.
It assuaged her hunger
But she claimed the fish-monger
Had got his recipe faulty.
There was a man from Aberdeen
Who let his John Thomas be seen,
He thought he was clever
But folks said they'd never
Seen anything quite so obscene!
There was a man from Dundee
Who worked for his friends for free.
He said 'It gives me pleasure
To work at my leisure
And it's cheaper for them don't you see! '
There was a man from Dumfries
Who fell in love with his neice.
They were ever so happy
Till her father grew stroppy
And reported them to the police.
There was a young man from Devizes
Whose balls were two different sizes,
The length of hi c**k
Was a bit of a shock
But it won him hundreds of prizes!
