Dude, Limericks are Sick!

This tattoo on IAM: retrovertigo really brought a smile to my face.

My parents had a book of limericks that they used to read from when I was a nipper, aaaah memories..

  1. there once was a young man named tim
    who drove his car with a great deal of vim
    he was often found
    covering ground
    but alas, now the ground covers him

    i had no clue what “vim” might be when i was little…

  2. A history grad student, Marta,
    mis-clicked as she browsed on Encarta.
    Instead of King Midas,
    there appeared Leonidas –
    “Phrygia? Madame, THIS IS SPARTA!”

  3. Little Johnny took a drink,
    But alas he drinks no more.
    For what he thought was H2O
    Was H2SO4

    Not really a limerick, but I like it anyway.

  4. i love the person who posted the sulfuric acid limerick! i loved that in highschool chem!
    there once was a man from nantucket..

  5. there’s another retrovertigo?
    I thought I had picked an original. Oh well.

    I’m always fascinated by the lettering and choice of font on these tattoos. It’s so sharp.

  6. A gourmet dining at Crewe
    Found a rather large mouse in his stew.
    Said the waiter, “Don’t shout
    And wave it about,
    Or the rest will be wanting one, too.”

  7. Hahah thats awesome, I love the sparta one :)

    Tis weird that you say nipper too, I thought that was an isle of wight thing and i’m pretty sure you’re not from here :p

    There was a young lady from Eiling
    Who had a perculier feeling
    She lay on her back
    Then opened her………

  8. There once was a man named Lou
    Who lost his old green shoe
    How he did shout
    And throw things about
    For he’d lost the other one too!

    I love limericks. That tattoo made me laugh.

  9. Funny nobody has mentioned anything about Relativity and the meaning of the poem. :)

  10. There was an Old Man with a beard,
    Who said, ‘It is just as I feared!
    Two Owls and a Hen,
    Four Larks and a Wren,
    Have all built their nests in my beard!’

    I can now see why you don’t like hair. Roo! lol jk jk….

  11. A cheery young gardener named Moe
    Accidentally chopped off his toe.
    The family beagle
    Swiftly and eagle-
    Y swallowed it down in one go!

  12. My cousin wrote one about our dog danny the other night. Hes badly behaved:

    There once was a spaniel called danny,
    whos behaviour was rather uncanny
    he liked to chase cats
    but sadly got scratched
    and now he just sniffs at my fanny.

    I found it rather amusing..hes a very strange dog.

  13. The once was a man from china
    Who wasn’t a very good climber
    He slipped on a rock
    And banged his cock
    And now he has a vagina


    endless source of amusement in school they were!

  14. Got this one from an English lecture:

    In the garden of Eden lay Adam
    Enjoying a chat with his madam
    And great was his mirth
    For on all of this Earth
    There were only two balls and he had them.

    Brilliant :D

  15. There was a young fellow called Quinn

    Who was so excessively thin

    That when he essayed

    To drink lemonade

    He slipped through the straw and fell in.

  16. I always heard the chemistry one as:
    Susie was in chemistry
    But susies is no more
    For what she thought was H2O was H2SO4

    Also, I really like that limerick. Nerdiness rocks!

  17. There was a young lady named Riger,
    who rode on the back of a tiger.
    They returned from the ride
    with the lady inside
    and a smile on the face of the tiger
