The one I've always loved was attributed to Winston Churchill.

He (supposedly) used to tell a story of how during the darkest times of the London Blitz the BBC decided to have a limerick competition. Thousands of limericks came in from all over the British Empire and finally the funniest one was chosen. Because of the language of the limerick the most objectionable words had to be "beeped" out - leaving only those acceptable for most listeners. It was finally read on the air:

beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep,

beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep,

beep beep beep beep beep,

beep beep beep beep beep,

beep beep beep beep beep f*cking c*nt.

And beat it to death with his cane.

I've always enjoyed limericks and a couple of work colleagues and myself often play limerick games after a days work, particularly when we're on the road and having a few drinks at the end of the day. The game goes like this: one person starts and everyone in turn adds a line until the limerick is complete. The normal rules of rhyming and scanning must be adhered to. Anyone failing to contribute in appropriate way buys the next round of drinks. try it 'catters it's fun particularly if you can work in a few relevant themes from the day........It can also get very rude.

He had bread and some meat
And a comfortable seat
That converted to a neat Lyndi-loo

Which since has stuck right in his craw

With just one more minute
And the help of a little Catspaw

Max needs to fill up Mudcats coffers
To silence the hecklers and scoffers
With dollars and groats
