An example of a limerick I thought of when I was a child is the following: There once was a man named Gene / Who was standing on an old trampoline / Somebody jumped on / Then Gene was gone / Now don't you think that was mean!

Here is a fairly old one,dating from at least the seventies.There once was a woman from Rome/who shaved all the hair off her dome/She said with a grin/while wiping her chin/Who cares if I don't have a comb.There are also some bawdy ones,perhaps going back even further,with the word Nantucket in them.Bawdiness is something Americans associate with Irish culture.

The limerick* packs laughs anatomical In space that is quite economical, But the good ones I've seen So seldom are clean, And the clean ones so seldom are comical. -Unknown
