'There's a wonderful family called Stein:
There's Gert and there's Ep and there's Ein.
Gert's poems are bunk,
Ep's statues are junk,
And no one can understand Ein.'
Gathers a variety of tongue twisters and humorous poems about history, religion, politics, mathematics, psychology, and sex."
GUARDIAN: "Wit, sharp comment, mood music, landscape, philosophy; all of these are in Mr Parrott's fine selection. Nor does it neglect the Double Limerick, the Limeraiku, the Reverse Limerick, Beheaded Limericks, though sportiness, naughtiness and all the traditional qualities are well and tastefully represented, in several shades of blue."
PUNCH: "He seems to have read not only every previous collection but also far-flung limerick competitions, as well as being the recipient of many an improper verse from proud authors."
