There are three types of limericks: those appropriate for women to hear, those suitable for the clergy, and those that could only be repeated when both were out of earshot.

Limericks

There once was a fellow called "James",
Who liked to make puns and play games.
He liked limericks best,
And was never a pest,
But knew lots of folks with weird names.

John is a young fella from Brussels,
Who truly loves fresh mussels,
He created this website,
Which is quite a sight,
Even though the back-end crackles.

Smut

The limerick's furtive and mean,
To be ketpt under close quarantine,
Or she'll sneak to the slums
Where she promptly becomes
Disorderly, drunk and obscene!
