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!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
