PD35-36. On the hole, two classics

There was a young bride, a Canuck,
Told her husband, "Let's do more than suck.
You say that I, maybe,
Can have my first baby--
Let's give up this Frenchin' and fuck!"

A certain young sheik of Algiers
Said to his harem, "My dears,
Though you may think it odd of me,
I'm tired of just sodomy
Let's try normal fucking." (Loud cheers!)

709. Tasteless (figuratively, that is...)

One night after drinking much wine,
A man said "Let's try 69."
But in his deep stupor
He licked his wife's pooper
And wondered "Who thinks this is fine?"

If this soixante-(e)neuf to make you gag, I'll try harder...

708. Hot to trot

A powerful stallion, a trotter,
When commanded did just what he otter.
In the sulkey's tight traces
Was off to the races,
A mare took the lead but he cotter.

707. The boots are a perfect match

In the South Texas hamlet of Cuero,
A man likes to wear a bolero.
The locals don't cotton
To him, think he's rotten
And call him a gay caballero.

706. Not close, but personal

A six foot eight fellow named Hank,
Has a peter that's both long and lank.
When he's having a lay
He's still one foot away
Though his dick's bottomed out in her tank!

705. Clap is applausible reason

There once was a fellow named Kinnan,
Who hired a whore for some sinnin'.
Three days after he leapt her
He noticed his sceptre
Was leaving stains on his bed linen.

OP30. I'm jealous, but not anneud

Helena Handbasket left this one as a comment to my #679.  I found it worthy of getting full readership so have brought it into the daylight to delight.
That clever old cuss, Sigmund Freud,
A headshrink and cad unalleud...
In louche hurly-burlies
He'd find him some gurlies
And with their emotions he teud.

"Helena" uses many more drag queen sobriquets, five of which can be enjoyed in his comments to entries PD33 and 700 thru 704.  His remarks there are funny, too.

704. Meet Heitor

His first name is pronounced ay-TOR in Portuguese...
That man from Brazil, Villa-Lobos,
Wrote works* loved by bassoons (also oboes)

Some think stuff by Heitor
Is odd-sounding and hor-
rid and suitable only for hobos.

* Duet for Oboe & Bassoon and Trio for Clarinet Bassoon & Oboe.

702-703. Pick a pronunciation

A lesbian lady will twitter us
Men while she fingers her clitoris.
She reports "This is great!"
But that fills us with hate
'Cause the fact she won't fuck does embitter us.

There once was a woman named Doris,
Who had an enormous clitoris.
'Twas as large as your thumb
(Made it easy to come)
When she did, she would sing out a chorus.

(Perhaps of "Hold On, I'm Comin'" by Sam and Dave)

701. Say MEE-yo

Hearing pieces by Darius Milhaud
Leaves some (pardon my Spanish) muy frio.
At Mills College, taught Brubeck
Composing -- how to peck
Out jazz pieces done by Dave's trio.

Actually, the student became famous beginning in the early 1950s
as the pianist/leader of the Dave Brubeck Quartet (but that didn't rhyme.)

700. What's for launch?

An amazing young bastard named Corter,
Has an asshole that's quite the reporter.
He shoves things in his rectum --
You'd never expect 'em
To fly as if shot from a mortar!

699. Not de finest

A wonderful word is definitive,
But it shouldn't be used if you're tentative.
"To precisely define"
Is redundant (not fine)
And besides that, it splits the infinitive.

698. Rare words

"Hey, Freddy, remember that crotch you ate?
Let's hope it has not left you botulate.
I see you are heavin' --
For doctor, be leavin'
Right now, i.e., you should absquatulate!"

I learned of claustridium botulinum in biology class.  Probably learned absquatulate from a W.C. Fields movie!

695. Can't do without 'em

The ENIAC is considered to be the first purely-electronic computer.
The computer, that wondrous machine,
Has been 66 years on the scene.
Its logic is Boolean,
Does date math in Julian,
Without mine, life wouldn't be keen.

692-693. Who goes there?

690. Don't wait, DO tell me!

Carl Kassel is the limerick reader for Nat'l. Public Radio's show "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!"  Contestants listen to him recite one without the final word and then must provide it.

689. Monthlies

A middle-aged sailor named Meg,
Like all gals, each month makes an egg.
She's adrift far from shore
And can't get to the store,
With no Tampax it runs down her leg.

688. Double entendre

I love phrases that can be "heard two ways."

One night at the flat of my flame,
We engaged in a fun little game.
She said "I Want You OUT!"
I then put on a pout,
And rather than going, I came.

687. The broad is a fraud

A medium woman was vaunted
For searching out spirits undaunted.
When employed by a host
To uncover a ghost,
She'd always say "This house is haunted."

PD34. Spoonerism

There was an explorer named Lew,
Wired home for "two punts, one canoe."
The reply the next day
Said "Girls on the way,
But what in the hell's a 'panoe'?"

"Spoonerism" is an eponym, from Wm. Archibald Spooner's penchant for switching the leading consonants of two words.  Scroll down at the link to see several examples.

There are many jokes which rely on this device, and here are just two:
Q. What's the difference between a band of pygmies and a girls' track team?
A.  One's a bunch of cunning runts (and the other's a bunch of...)

Q.  What's the difference between an epileptic oyster shucker and a whore with diarrhea?
A.  The eplileptic shucks between fits...

686. Wish I were this guy

A fortunate fellow named Hicks
Has the luck of a dog with three dicks!
Whether car (trying to park it)
Or playing the market
Each thing that he does always clicks.

PD33. Necro-romancing

A mortician who practised in Fife
Made love to the corpse of his wife.
"How could I know, Judge?
She was cold, did not budge --
Just the same as she'd acted in life."

That one brings to mind this joke:
A man dials 911 and reports
"I think my wife is dead."
"You think she's dead?!!  Why do you say that?"
"Well, the sex is the same but the dishes are piling up in the sink."

685. Preggers

A girl with a liberal slant
Got fired when she went on a rant.
Eight weeks with no period,
Her problems are myriad --
No income, no prospects, enceinte*.

*French for pregnant

683-684. Maidenheads

A virgin's small membrane of skin,
Slows a man when he tries to get in.
I hope there's no crime in
My rhymin' on hymen --
If so, I've committed a sin.

A woman whose word can be trusted,
Says "My cherry has never been busted.
It has a big scab
So men won't take a stab
Plus, my labia minor are crusted."

682. Reverting to Verdi

You can read my first one about him by clicking this.
Old Giuseppe Verdi was keen,
His operas are still on the scene.
The name of this Brahmin*
Is really quite common,
Translated to English:  "Joe Green."

*A socially or culturally superior person

681. Once is too many

An executive, Oliver Rand,
Fucked an underling (mere one-night-stand.)
News somehow traveled back
That they'd been in the sack
And the lady and Rand both got canned.

680. This will choke you up

There once was a fellow named Solo,
Who wore a string tie called a bolo.
One night he got hot,
Used it as a garotte,
Was arrested.  In court pleaded "nolo."

Nolo contendere is Latin for "no contest."  I first heard the term when former VP Spiro Agnew pleaded "n.c." to a charge of cheating the feds of $13,000+ on his 1967 taxes.  The plea is just a euphemism for "guilty" -- they are treated identically.

OP29. An admirer wrote

This came from one of my good friends, Bill B.  I'm flattered!

Phil's limericks, when seen in review,
Are great, though they're not always true.
I consistently found
Him grammatically sound
But they’re often a deep shade of blue.

(I guess 'red' didn't rhyme)   :-)

679. Butt plug

A very sad fellow named Lloyd,
Has a single but large hæmorrhoid.
The thing is so giant
(And not at all pliant)
His poor colon just cannot void.

678. Erosion or explosion?

A tourist in Giza (a geezer),
Found the pyramids quite a big pleezer.
When he looked on The Sphinx
And its nose with the shrinx
Said "That thing must have been a big sneezer!"

677. Pun on soul phase

An R&B singer named Cole Hays,
Learned to do "do-re-mi" in his ol' days.
Using words for each note,
Syllables from his throat
Meant that he had now entered his solfege.

(Click the final word for an explanation.)

676. English spoken here

A horny explorer named Fletcher,
Was known as somewhat of a lecher.
On one of his trips
Found a girl with huge lips,
Asked "Ubangi?"  The girl said "You betcher!"
