Why Use Our Limerick Generator

Online limerick generators seem to come in two categories - ones that guide you through the process of writing your own, and ones that select rewritten lines and jumble them up. These are great fun but a little limited. Our automatic limerick generator looks up rhymes for your input on the fly. So, if you want to write about somebody with a particular name, interest, or from a certain place, you can tap that in, and we'll try to find lines that rhyme for you. The results are sometimes surprising, but always provide an excellent starting point for creating your own limericks.
