May 12 is Limerick Day, a holiday created to celebrate the life of Irish writer Edward Lear. As you all know, limericks are witty or funny five lined poems, and Lear happened to be one of the most notable limerick writers in Irish history. Poetry’s not really our gig, so we instead decided to bring you five of the hottest Irish babes we could find (five lines, five girls). For all the graduating English majors out there, check out a personal favorite limerick of mine at the bottom.
The limerick’s structure somewhat
necessitates eloquent smut.
If you haven’t the time
to learn meter and rhyme,
then don’t write them, you ignorant slut.
