Everyone knows at least one limerick. Here are all the limericks you can remember, and many you can't recall but wished you could - from childhood ones to some very adult ones.

Jim Haynes has arranged more than a thousand limericks according to type. Witty and whimsical, childish and charming, linguistic and logical, fair dinkum and funny, barmy and

British. Australian idols and icons, place names and prime ministers are paraded in all their historical and satirical glory. Some limericks, however witty, are joyfully risque, vulgar

or even downright crude - thoughtfully placed categories ranging from mildly impolite and immodest to those obscene and odious examples beloved of rugby clubs and teenage

boys of all ages.

All show that the limerick is a celebration of life, nonsense and lusciously lecherous energy - and what better place for it to flourish than right here?
