G-Rated Limericks

We offer these glisteningly clean limericks just to prove it can be done. Limericks, of course, play notorious language games that have earned them a page on the linguistic fun pages. Here are some that play most pristinely.

We are now distinguishing original limericks written by our readers from those our readers have picked up on the street or in their e-mail. Please share any others you know of or have written by contacting us here.

Here is what Steve Parris thinks about alphaDictionary's limericks:

The Alpha Agora might boast
Of limericks cleaner than most.
But when rhymers start cookin'
And nobody's lookin',
They write stuff they never could post.
