Limericks

There was a young fellow of Perth,
Who was born on the day of his birth;
He was married, they say,
On his wife's wedding day,
And he died when he quitted the earth.

I really like limericks, I think they are very fun. Do you know any limericks? Or maybe you could write one for me!

My father was born in England
My mother was born in France
I was born in diapers
because I had no pants

Bob that just made me think of last Friday when we were getting our anthrax vaccinations. They gave us a questionnaire asking Where we received our last shot. My chief told me I couldn't put, in my arm.

I don't think that quite falls under "limerick," does it? It is cute though. :)

You are right, a limerick, to be a limerick, must have; 5 lines of which lines 1,2 and 5 rhyme and have a rhythmical pattern of three groups stressed and unstressed syllables and lines 3 and 4 rhyme and have only 2 groups of stressed and unstressed syllables.
