The limerick is a poetical form popular since the 18th century. The idea that there can be ‘clean’ limericks is farcical at best. However, I have a couple of examples that I wrote which are cleaner than most.


Vacuumed Cleaner

There was an old man from Vancouver,

Who bought his new wife a used Hoover;

She put in the plug,

It sucked up the rug,

So he got a big van man to move her.


It’s the Pits

There was a young woman from Barrie,

Who loved kissing armpits, quite hairy;

One day, she did smell,

And said, “This is hell:

Some sweaty men’s armpits are scary.”


Will that be Cash or …?

A young maiden from St. Catharines

Felt she’d have to pay dearly for sins;

So she thought, “What’s the harm-a,

If I charge them to Karma,

Cause a person with debts never wins?”
