William Baring-Gould
There was a young lady of Riga,
Who smiled as she rode on a tiger.
    They returned from the ride
    With the lady inside,
And the smile on the face of the tiger.

William Baring-Gould
There was a young plumber of Leigh,
Was plumbing a maid by the sea.
    Said the maid: "Cease your plumbing,
    I think someone's coming.",
Said the plumber, still plumbing: "It's me."

Arnold Bennet, 1920
The best limericks are the ones you cannot print.

Charles Inge
A certain young gourmet of Crediton
Took some pÔtÚ de fois gras and spread it on
    A chocolate biscuit,
    Then murmured: "I'll risk it."
His tomb bears the day he said it on.

Reginald Buller
There was a young lady named Bright,
Whose speed was far faster than light.
    She went out one day
    In a relative way,
And returned the previous night.

Allegedly President Woodrow Wilson's favourite
I sat next to the Duchess at tea,
Distressed as a person could be.
    Her rumblings abdominal
    Were simply phenomenal —
And everyone thought it was me!

Cyril Bibby
On the bust of a barmaid in Hale
Were tattoed current prices of ale —
    While on her behind
    (For the sake of the blind)
Were all the same prices in Braille.

Peter Pauper's Limerick Book
There was a young maid from Madras
Who had a magnificent ass
    Not rounded and pink
    As you probably think —
It was grey, had long ears, and ate grass.
