man with birds perched on noseLimericks and pictures.

Edward Lear's popular Nonsense books featured his famously absurd limericks, accompanied by his silly illustrations.

Lear pretty much invented the limerick, though his are a little different than today's, with the last line duplicating (rather than rhyming with) the first.

We've selected 32 of the best (and least likely to offend) "Nonsense Rhymes and Pictures" from his 1846 A Book of Nonsense.
