The one I've always loved was attributed to Winston Churchill.

He (supposedly) used to tell a story of how during the darkest times of the London Blitz the BBC decided to have a limerick competition. Thousands of limericks came in from all over the British Empire and finally the funniest one was chosen. Because of the language of the limerick the most objectionable words had to be "beeped" out - leaving only those acceptable for most listeners. It was finally read on the air:

beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep,

beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep,

beep beep beep beep beep,

beep beep beep beep beep,

beep beep beep beep beep f*cking c*nt.

There once was a prelate named Zane
Whose brain was deranged from cocaine
He lured a child
To a copse dark and wild
And beat it to death with his cane.

I've always enjoyed limericks and a couple of work colleagues and myself often play limerick games after a days work, particularly when we're on the road and having a few drinks at the end of the day. The game goes like this: one person starts and everyone in turn adds a line until the limerick is complete. The normal rules of rhyming and scanning must be adhered to. Anyone failing to contribute in appropriate way buys the next round of drinks. try it 'catters it's fun particularly if you can work in a few relevant themes from the day........It can also get very rude.

And the help of a little Catspaw

With dollars and groats

I lean towards the scientific (and love Kendall's mathematics one!):

There was a young fellow from Trinity
Who took the square root of infinity
But the number of digits
Gave him the fidgets
He dropped math and took up divinity.

There was a young fellow named Fiske
Whose fencing was exceedingly brisk.
So fast was his action
The Fitzgerald contraction
Reduced his rapier to a disk.

There was a young fellow named Fred
Had a tool with a corkscrew shaped head.
He found, having hunted,
A girl corkscrew c**ted
But, alas!, with a Fred-reversed thread.

There was a young lady from Crewe
Who filled her vagina with glue
She said with a grin
If they pay to get in
They'll pay to get out of it too.

The gay young Duke of Buckingham
Stood on the bridge at Rockingham
Watching the stunts
Of the c****s in the punts
And the tricks of the p****s that were f****** 'em

Here is a link to some unusual Physics Limericks

Such as:

A theorist evaluating a weight, Neglected what he should calculate. He said: what the hell, I do quite well, When two is much larger than eight!

Cheers Pat

Here are two, in the same vein:

There once was a young lad from Wipers (Ypres) Who was shot up the arse by some snipers; When he vented his air Through the holes that were there, He astounded the Cameron pipers!

There once was a lad from Roedean Who tried to fart "God Save the Queen" When he hit the sporano Out shot the guano, And his britches weren't fit to be seen!

Said Einstein, "I have an equation,
Which some may think quite Rabelaisian.
Let V be virginity,
Approaching infinity,
And P be a constant persuasion.

Let P over V be inverted;
Let P into V be inserted.
It seems clear to me
That the outcome will be
A _relative_," Einstein asserted.

Thanks to John Valby on this one:

There once was a girl from Decatur
Who got laid by a big aligator.
Now nobody knew
The result of that screw
'Cause after he laid her he ate her.

And one that's not x-rated

A tutor who tooted his flute
Tried to teach two young tooters to toot
Said the two to the tutor
Is it harder to toot
Or to tutor two tooters to toot?

You want clean?

A flea and a fly in a flue
were caught; didn't know what to do.
"Let us fly!" said the flea.
"Let us flee!" said the fly.
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

or

There once was a lady, Simone de Beauvoir,
who committed a dreadful faux pas;
she loosened a stay
of her decollete
and exposed her je ne sais quois.

But I prefer

A pretty young lady from Exeter
had the young men all craning their necks at her
and some were so brave
as to take out and wave
the distinguishing marks of their sex at her.

Cheers, Rowan

There once was a man from Darjeeling
Who travelled by bus to South Ealing
It said on the door,
"Please don't spit on the floor."
So he stood up and spat on the ceiling.

There once was a man from Dundee
Who was stung on the arm by a wasp
When asked "Does it hurt?"
He replied "Not, it doesn't
I'm so glad it wasn't a hornet."

A lady who lived on the Humber
Had a wondrous collection of lumber:
Old boots and tin whistles
A brush without bristles,
Three harps and a fossilised plumber

There was a young fellow from Harrow
Whoi went round the world in a barrow
In crossing Ben Nevis
He fell down a crevice
For the path was exceedingly narrow.

I have recently been re-reading Mike Harding's 'Rambling On', which has the opening lines of

There was a young lady called Annie
Who plaited the hairs on her fanny

I E-Mailed him at 'Folk on Two' (or whatever it's called - that poxy radio programme on a Wednesday night and if it isn't Kate Rusby it's Christy Moore) asking for the rest of the words, but I just got an acknowledgement.

Does ANY 'Catter know the rest of the words, 'cos it's driving me daft (dafter).

Here are two of my Dad's favorites:

There once was a lady from Wheeling
Who had a funny feeling
So she laid on her back
Opened her crack
And peed all over the ceiling

There was a man from Boston
Who bought himself an Austin
There was room for his ass
And a gallon of gas
But his balls hung out and he lost 'em

   An Austin was a very small automobile and if you already knew that
you're probably as old as that rhyme.

A habit obscene and unsavoury
Holds the Bishop of Wessex in slavery
With maniac howls
He deflowers young owls
Which he keeps in an underground aviary

BUT....

The Bishop of Dunstan St.Just
Was consumed by a similar lust
So he raped all those owls
Those elegant fowls
And a little green lizard- what bust!

As Titian was mixing Rose-madder
His model posed nude on a ladder.
Her position, to Titian,
Suggested coition.
So he climbed up the ladder and had 'er.

There was a young lady named Arden
Who blew her boy friend in the garden.
He asked, his voice gruff:
"Do you swallow that stuff?"
And she replied, "(gulp) Beg your pardon?"

There was a young fellow named Durkin
Addicted to jerkin' his gherkin.
His wife told him, "Durkin,
By jerkin' your gherkin,
You're shirkin' your firkin, you bastard!"

There was a young lady from Surrey
Who needed to piss in a hurry.
She lay on her back
And opened her cxrack
And Fred backed in in his lorry.

('lorry' here requires pronunciation in the Queen's Manchester accent.)

There was a young man from the Cape
Who was buggered by a bloody big ape.
He screamed 'Get off, you foll -
You've got a square tool
Which is knocking my arse out of shape.

Is not just a visual sensorium
But a highly effectual
Heterosexual

Another non-X-rated ~~ made up at the appropriate historical moment by a very brilliant pupil, David Williams of Acrefield Drive, Cambridge, in my long-since teaching days, for the Chesterton School Astronomical Society's newsletter ~ which, needless to say, he edited:

Apollo to Mission Control
We are almost in reach of our goal
But this reading of 'G'
Seems excessive to me
