The Limericks packs laughs anatomical
Into space that is quite economical,
But the good ones I've seen
So seldom are clean
And the clean ones so rarely are comical

This scintillating anthology has over 1,000 limericks - clean, dirty, filthy and obscene. It contains limericks historical, geographical, wistful, whimsical, clerical and medical - and almost all of them fantastical. Compiled by two of Britain's most knowing limericists, this book will delight and entertain all but the most straitlaced.

Illustrated by various artists, with an Afterword by Marcus Clapham.
