A Quizzical Verse: Limericks Comic and Not
By Michael R. Collings
Published: September 22, 2010.
Everyone knows about limericks--five short lines packed with twists and turns, comic rhymes, frequent tongue-twisters, and a rollicking meter that just won’t quit. In this book you will find nearly seventy limericks ranging from limericks about limericks, to limericks that explore oddly distorted views of history, to limericks that play with the frequent conundrums presented by English spelling.
