Thread Name: Folklore: Limericks...know any good ones [15]
Subject: RE: BS: Limerics...know any good ones
There was a young Marquis of Avebury,
In the grip of a vice most unsavoury,
With bloodcurdling howls,
He deflowered young owls,
Which he kept in an underground aviary.

This is an example of a 'gothic limerick' - a special sub-category. Anyone know any more?
