"I need some cheese for my bucket"

Said the old man from Nantucket

"Brie and Camembert,

Cheddar and Roquefort.

The surplus I'll keep in my pocket"

    Lol, I know a couple with Nantucket in them but they don't end well!

  • I think if You quick edited this to have the commas around the speaking lines, it would be just slightly better. Also, nice way to get the cheese in there, especially with their names. I'm surprised You didn't go with Gorgonzola or Limburger. Regardless, You kept this limerick so high brow that some of us might have to draw on our eyebrows. Mmmm, yes... rather fancy if I do say so myself. This limerick is so fancy that I had to read it with my second monocle.
