much alive and well. This monster volume of 2,000 limericks ranges from clean
to (moderately) filthy, all guaranteed to make you laugh! It contains limericks
that are historical, geographical, whimsical, clerical, medical and many
more.

This giant collection includes limericks by such names as Edward Lear, Isaac
Asimov, Robert Louis Stevenson, Rudyard Kipling, William Shakespeare, H.G.
Wells, John Betjeman, Ogden Nash, Spike Milligan, and others. As well as a

this volume.

You'll find plenty of modern gems - limericks relevant to today's world, such
