National Limerick Day

National Limerick Day

Limericks were named for the Irish city of Limerick. Although limericks weren’t actually created by Edward Lear (although they were popularised by him), limericks are still loved by many. Although limericks can be traced back to as far as 500 centuries, it is not known when the first limerick was made or if it was accidental.

Limericks that use a unique metre and AABBA rhyming schemes are perfect for creating nonsense verses. This is why limericks often have a childish, or even obscene tone. The most hilarious limericks are both childish and obscene.
