Surely it can’t be done. But it has been done.


For the first time in the history of mankind someone has been dedicated enough and fool enough to write a filthy limerick for every town in the UK which, unlike Leeds or Devizes, doesn’t already have a classic filthy limerick to call its own.


From Land’s End to John o’ Groats, The Great British Limerick Book has a filthy limerick for your town, for your uncle’s town, for your cousin’s husband’s ex-wife’s town ... as long as it’s in the UK and  as long as it isn’t one of those few places that are really impossible to find a rhyme for.


There are over 900 limericks in the book. A lot of them are hilarious. Most of them are very funny. All of them are filthy.


The book contains adult humour and profanity.

Home of this limerick for:

Dudley, West Midlands

I once bathed with a lady from Dudley

But just as we were getting cuddly

The moment went wrong

When I emitted a pong

Making the water go bubbly

... and 918 others!

Here's a  web exclusive bonus! Although there are lots of limericks for places in London in the book, there isn't one for Sidcup and one of our Twitter followers wanted one. So, always happy to oblige our followers, here's the one that was written specially in response to that request.
