A great present for fathers, brothers and friends with a wicked sense of humour! Lively Limericks is a collection of amusing and risqué limericks compiled and written by Patrick Holden, and illustrated by cartoonists Oliver Preston, and Bill Stott. Limericks first appeared in England in the early part of the 18th Century, and were popularized by Edward Lear in his Book of Nonsense. Patrick Holden is an avid collector of Limerick verse and this selection contains many classic limericks and updated favourites –many are cheeky and rude, and not for the easily offended ! But perfect reading material for the loo or cloakroom.
A Limericist writes:
The limerick 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 seldom are comical.
