|These poems provide examples of limericks.|
A staid schizophrenic named Struther,
When told of the death of his brother,
Said: "Yes, I am sad;
It makes me feel bad,
But then, I still have each other."
|Because the clever humor of limericks make them a highly popular form of verse, they are subject to wide oral circulation, in which process their authorship often becomes unknown.|
A tutor who tooted the flute
Tried to tutor two tooters to toot,
Said the two to the tutor,
"Is it harder to toot or
To tutor two tooters to toot?"
There was a young lady of Lynn
Who was so uncommonly thin
That when she essayed
To drink lemonade
She slipped through the straw and fell in.
