The limericks are set out in different sections thus making it easier if you are looking for something on a particular subject, plus there is an index at the rear. There is an introduction about nonsense rhymes, limericks, and anti-limericks, which this book also contains. The English language is ripe for double entendres, and we have a fine tradition of wordplay in this country, which can quite clearly be seen in this fantastic book. The vast majority of the limericks/anti-limericks contained here are of a smutty nature (as the majority of limericks are), and some of them may be a bit rude for some people.
Being a nice size to put in your pocket you can have a laugh wherever you are when you have a spare few moments, also there are some here that you are bound to want to tell others. All in all this is a book that you don't want to miss out on, it will bring you hours of pleasure as you re-read all these limericks time and time again.

Lovely wee book. Great illustrations, nice quality paper and binding. Very funny (and often filthy) limericks. Not one for the kids!Published 28 days ago by Slightlycomedic
