  1. banned of censored

    I know I must be reading this wrong but I can’t get the rhythm for the last line, seems like way too many syllables in the whole thing in general. It’s annoying me now.

      There spoke about Lear’s rubbish limericks on QI at the weekend. His mostly had the same first and last lines. Terrible doggerel. But at least they scanned properly, like so:
      There was an Old Man of Aôsta,
      Who possessed a large Cow, but he lost her;
      But they said, ‘Don’t you see,
      she has rushed up a tree?
      You invidious Old Man of Aôsta!’
