The Larry Wilde Book Of Limericks, by Larry Wilde
The latest e-book release in The Larry Wilde Joke Book Series by Laugh.com!
A limerick, basically, is a short joke or anecdote in rhyming verse element. This very factor may well be the main reason for its popularity down through the years. Many persons complain, “I can’t seem to remember jokes,” or, “I always forget the punch line.” But when the joke is in meter, it requires the teller to learn and recite it exactly as written. Rhythm is the key to delivery, and delivery—as every professional comedian will attest—is essential to making people laugh.
Just as technology, medicine, law, engineering, et al. must grow in order to survive, so must humor. Something fresh has to arrive on the scene in order for it to endure. And, in fact, there is always something new in humor. Incredibly, after years in the field of comedy, we still hear new jokes almost every day.
