Do you like a good limerick? Here’s a couple for your reading pleasure…

I’m not part of the wondrous elite,
But I do have a talent that’s neat.
Neither hero nor god,
I’m a branchiopod
And can breathe through the gills on my feet!


Got my boat hitched behind my jalopy,
My float plan (my wife’s got a copy),
My poles, baits — and lights,
Because evening to night’s
The best time to go fishing for crappie.

The OEDILF, that’s The Omnificent English Dictionary In Limerick Form, has started to assemble “the absolute finest 5-line AABBA poetry being written in the English-speaking world today”.

You can search and read the current list or submit a new limerick of your own. (They are currently accepting limericks based on words beginning with the letters Aa through Di inclusive only.)
