Limericks - From Funny Famous Ditties To Rude Little Witty's!

Updated on September 15, 2011

Limericks can be traced as far back in History as the fourteenth Century, starting in England. They were mainly used as nursery rhymes for children, but of course because they were short and to the point, they spread to the inn's and taverns and ended up being bawdy and rather rude! So, as I was in a particularly funny mood, I thought that I would add a few of my favourites here. There were so many to choose from, and I thought that I had better only choose the ones that weren't, well, too bad, if you know what I mean! as I didn't want to shock the more delicate sensibilities of some of the more refined readers! Which of course is all of you! As you are so well behaved and such genteel ladees and gentlemen, I suggest that you read them with one eye closed, and that way it won't be as shocking to your delicate systems! Ah Ha

The word Limerick comes from the town in Ireland called, well, Limerick! Which is situated in the southern part of the country. Where songs were sung, and the bawdiness of the drunken man and the strumpet inn keeper's daughter brought a new type of poetry mixed with hilarity and this is what made the chorus change and of course brought us the famous Limerick .All because people had had too much to drink!. So there you have it, mixing the English drunkards with the poetic Irish, we ended up with the mixture of Limerick that we know so well today! Anyway, off we go, and if anybody has got any good ones, please feel free to add them at the bottom. I of course, know that you will be very sensible and just add sweet little poems! Uh Uumm! Hick! Sooo Shorry, too much tooo drinkkkkkk...............!

Merry Meet My Friends here's to the Ale and the Bawdiness!

 

There was an old man from Sprocket,

Who went up to Space in a Rocket,

The Rocket went bang,

His gonads went clang,

And his bum ended up in his pocket.

 

 There was a young woman called Sally,

Who loved an occasional dally

She sat on the lap

Of a well endowed chap

And said 'You're right up my alley.

 A wonderful bird is the pelican

His bill can hold more than his belican

He can take in his beak

Food enough for a week

But I'm damned if I see how the helican.

by Dixon Merritt.

 

 There was a young man from Savannah

Who met his end in a curious manner

He whittled a hole

In a telephone pole

And electrified his banana

 There was a young girl from Madras

Who had a most beautiful ass

Not rounded and pink

As you probably think

But Grey with long ears, and ate grass

Anonymous

A young engineer name of Paul

Was equipped with an octagonal ball

The square of his weight

Times his pecker, plus eight

Is his phone number, give him a call!

 

 

There once was an artist named Saint

Who swallowed some samples of paint

All Shades of the spectrum

Flowed out of his rectum

With a colourful lack of restraint!

 

There once was a man from Bonaire

Who was doing his wife on the stair

When the banister broke

He doubled his stroke

And finished her of in midair!

 

 

Limericks By Edward Lear

Just to prove that I do have a bit of culture in me, I thought I would add a few famous limericks by the poet Edward Lear!

There was a young lady whose chin

Resembled the point of a pin

So she had it made sharp

And purchased a harp

And played several tunes with her chin!

-

There was an old person of Dover

Who rushed through a field of blue Clover

But some very large bees

Stung his nose and his knees

So he very soon went back to Dover.

-

There was an old lady of Chertsey

Who made a remarkable Curtsy

She twirled round and round

Til she sunk underground

Which distressed all the people of Chertsey.

-

There was an old man who supposed

That the street door was partially closed

But some very large rats

Ate his coat and his hats

While that futile old gentleman dozed.

-

There was an old man in a tree

Whose whiskers were lovely to see

But the birds of the air

Plucked them perfectly bare

To make themselves nests in the tree

-

There was an old person of Ware

Who rode on the back of a bear

When they asked, 'Does it trot?'

He said 'Certainly not!'

He's a Moppsikon Floppsikon Bear!

Thanks to The www.jokespalace.com for a couple of the Rude Limericks. The rest are taken from a number of other share sites, so thanks to them. Oh, and a couple from me!

      kind of witty but you know what people expect when they anticipate a limmerick....

      the only one i have memorized is about a man from nantucket and said something with a grin

      while wiping off his chin and i went ahead and left the other parts out

      ROFL! You found some choice ones there, Nell! But of course, don't you know, the gentility is but a mask, and the funniest jokes are off-color! HA!

      Here's one my mother used to recite--it may be from Lear, but I'm not certain:

      There was an old man of Blackheath,

      Who sat on his set of false teeth.

      He jumped up with a start,

      And cried, 'Bless my heart!

      'I've bitten myself underneath!'

      Hi Nell, I know I am five years late, but i just came across this hub and I love limericks. These are great and very saucy. In my limerick hubs I always had some problem getting them past the HP censors and had to change a few. I think the editors are more prudish than they used to be.

      I'll try to add one here but it is quite rude so I will edit out one of the words. There are two versions.

      There was a young lady named Hunt

      Who performed the unusual stunt

      Of screwing long distance

      At her lover's insistence

      For she had a detachable ****

      or

      There was a young lady named Hunt

      Who performed the unusual stunt

      Of screwing by mail

      With her lover in jail

      For she had a detachable ****

      Please delete comment if too rude for your hub.

      For all of the raving reviews,

      For all this limerick news.

      It's safe to retort

      This limerick sport

      I really enjoyed your hub, thank you for sharing. Voted up and the buttons too.

      I should have expressed myself more clearly. AFAIK, the Bartok limerick is the handiwork of Jim Wildman, whom I haven't seen in ages.

      Nobody has ever accused me of being a poet before. Maybe a bar-room poet. Oh wait a minute; I just remembered that I don't frequent pubs. *sighs* Not even a bar-room poet.

      Voted up, funny, and shared. Here's a Limerick that I heard in college from a music major.

      There once was a man named Bela Bartok,

      Who tied mandolin strings about his c***

      With each erection he made,

      A selection he played,

      From Johann Sebastian Bach!

      Even though I'm not a poetry buff, I did feel obligated to contribute to the genre, because of all the great Limericks out there. I actually put this one on my answering machine many years ago.

      There once was a man named Larry,

      Whose schedule was quite contrary.

      If you want him to phone,

      Leave your number at the tone,

      And please, not in binary!

These (above the belt) mixture of limericks of English drunkards with the (sober? – ha-ha) poetic Irish, is truly hilarious. I feel like writing a few myself. Just need some Irish beer.

      These are so funny! I am going to forward this to my brother-in-law, 'cause I know he will get a kick out of it! And I had never heard a one of these before.

      My favorite ones have always been about the little boy Willy:

      Willy saw some dynamite,

      Didn't understand it quite.

      Curiosity seldom pays.

      It rained Willy seven days.

      Nell,

      This is understandably a very popular hub. Your limericks are humorous and smart and just the right amount of naughty. :-) They are so fun to read, but also fun to write. I wrote one recently that has gone missing, and I wish I could find it. I really enjoyed the one about Sally!

      Truly excellent, very funny and a splendid idea for a Hub. To my shame, I never connected limericks with Limerick (despite being a Brit.!).
