Our FamilyFirst site today
May delight you or maybe dismay
Its theme, you discern
Is that poetry spurned
It’s limericks! What can I say?
Yes, today’s FamilyFirst site is called OEDILF: The Omnificent English Dictionary In Limerick Form.
The site is home to thirty thousand limericks! That’s a mighty large number, you see.
You type in the word you’re looking for and see it come up in various limericks. Let’s try one purely at random: schistosomiasis.
Ah, here we go:
The blood fluke’s a parasite worm;
If you catch one, you’ll soon feel infirm.
In fact, you can die of this
(Trematode worms make me squirm.)
See how it works?
You can also get limericks at random or browse by topic. By default, a content filter is on. Given the bawdy history of the limerick, remove it at your own risk.
I searched for schnauzer and didn’t find one. So to close this piece, I will humbly submit my own:
The king of canines is the schnauzer
A lovably fun rabble rouser
With a heart that’s as big
As a Texas oil rig
But they pee on the carpet. NO, BOWSER!
