In the original, the limericks The Young Girl of Uttoxeter and The Whore From Down Under were not numbered 1 and 2; How Life Began was not dated, but in the on-line edition was dated 24th October 1984 - a format I have since abandoned. The Young Lady From Ash (see below) should read The Young Lady From ASH - an acronym of Action on Smoking and Health; Gein as in Ed Gein is actually pronounced as in seen rather than sign, but it’s too late to alter it now. There were one or two very minor differences/errors in the program which I have left.

The following limericks by myself were included in Limericks On-Line;

The Decorative Ponce

And the following by Mark Taha were also included:

The thrashing of Mike Tyson (twice) by Evander Holyfield left Mr Taha with egg on his face with regard to The Unreal Deal, and George Bush refers to George Bush Senior.
