Some favorite limericks

Originally, I was typing a little commentary for The Unlimited: Hyoubu Kyousuke episode 3 when the thought of one of my favorite poems distracted me. I ended up searching for limericks and have been spending the past thirty minutes laughing. So here are a few that I really enjoyed and wanted to share:

1. A certain young man named Bill Beebee
Was in love with a lady named Phoebe.
“But,” he said “I must see
What the clergyman’s fee
Be before Phoebe be Phoebe Beebee.”

2. A bottle of perfume that Willy sent
Was highly displeasing to Millicent.
Her thanks were so cold
That they quarreled, I’m told,
Through that silly scent Willy sent Millicent.

3. A fly and a flea in a flue
Were imprisoned, so what could they do?
Said the fly, “Let us flee!”
“Let us fly!” said the flea.
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

I really have no idea what type of poem this is but it is my absolute favorite:

The Octopus by Ogden Nash

Tell me, O Octopus, I begs
Is those things arms, or is they legs?
I marvel at thee, Octopus;
If I were thou, I’d call me Us.
