It became popular in the mid-nineteenth century after the London-born poet Edward Lear published his Book of Nonsense.So its a type of poem named after an Irish city and it was first popularised by an Englishman. But what do you call a limerick thats been written by a Scotsman? Why, a McLIMERICK, of course!COONT THUM is a collection of over 100 McLimericks. Theyve all been penned by the Ayrshire writer and poet Angus Shoor Caan. And, in true Scots fashion, every one of them is witty, down-to-earth and totally irreverent. In fact, we at McStorytellers, the website dedicated to showcasing the work of Scottish-connected short story writers, were so tickled by them that we rushed to publish them. We hope youll be tickled by them as well.So please delve into COONT THUM. Youll find a McLimerick for every occasion.
