A Sackful of Limericks




A collection of over 100 wondrously witty and fabulously festive limericks

If you've ever wondered what happened to the young fellow from Malta who bought his grandfather an altar…

If you're concerned about the camper called Jack who found a huge snake in his pack…

And if you suspect that an eccentric landowner called Grey spent Christmas a very strange way but aren't sure precisely what that entailed…

Then a dip into Michael Palin's Sackful of Limericks will provide all the answers – and a lot of fun besides.
