A few random limericks from the last couple of decades. . . .
There once was a lady from Mexico
Who dreamed of becoming a lexico-
grapher. Yet all could tell,
After quite a bad spell,
Shed be better off working for Texaco.
A young virtuoso from Cuba
Performed Meistersinger on tuba.
Boasted he: Nothing to it!
Said the critic: You blew it!
Take your tuba and move to Aruba!
A lassie from old Caledonia
Kissed Sir Malcolm and told Mal, "I'll phone ya!"
Lassie skipped off to Italy,
And, alas, he heard diddly.
Grumbled Mal: "That gal's full of Bologna."
George Washington's singular aim:
That the rose garden bearing his name
Be known as a place
Of beauty and grace.
Thus George W.'s bush rose to fame!
