An eccentric landowner called Grey
Spent Christmas a very strange way.
Instead of nice presents
He’d give people pheasants,
Then laugh as they all flew away.
There was a young dancer called Brett
Who posted rude things on the net
He was liked by two vicars
Who sent him some knickers
And anything else they could get
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 a young man called Vince is dropping rather obvious hints… Then a dip into Michael Palin's Sackful of Limericks will provide all the answers - and a lot of fun besides. Brilliant illustrated by Tony Ross, these hilarious verses, penned by Palin over the years. ‘Limericks are all about rhythm really. When it comes to content the secret is to clear your brain of any useful or productive thoughts, and whatever’s left can be recycled as a Limerick.’ – Michael Palin One of the nation’s best-loved and most well-known faces, Michael Palin has many strings to his bow. Initially making his name as a comedian and member of the Monty Python creative team as well as a screenwriter he has since turned to writing, penning fiction, poetry, numerous travel books including *Around the World in Eighty Days* and several volumes of biographical writing, most recently *Travelling to Work*.

Lots of fun for all the family. Some were read out at my parents 50th Wedding anniversary by my 11 year old son.
