The Ballad of Eskimo Nell: The All-Time Greatest Collection of Bawdy Verse and Dirty Limericks

George Ashgrove

The Ballad of Eskimo Nell is the most famous bawdy ballad of all time. In a newly revised and extended version, it is the lead piece for an unparalleled collection of bawdy and erotic verse, and dirty limericks. This book includes the time-honored old chestnuts along with some sensational new ones. No form of comic verse enjoys such genuine popularity as the bawdy lyric-the four-letter variety. That describes this book! It belongs on the shelf in every bathroom! Along with the greatest erotic and bawdy verse ever written, this book includes amazing new discoveries for the humorous risqué canon. In addition, there are most of the dirty limericks worth repeating--only about 60 altogether! All the verse in this book is clever or funny on some level, including many old favorites after much-needed editing. Notably, new ones include The Ballad of Lady Charlene, which may take its place alongside Eskimo Nell. Another new hilarious new one is Wider with Rosie-The Axa Company Song, a lascivious spoof for the tune of O come all ye faithful. As John Gross says in his introduction to The Oxford Book of Comic Verse, bawdy verse is part of our heritage.
