It's hard to improve on the Metafilter entry pointing to this, but the author of XKCD has created LimerickDB, and I'm convinced that if Topspin gets a hold of this horrific things will result. Which is why I'm compelled to link to it.

You could start with the LimerickDB top 150, which includes gems like this one:

A woman in liquor production
Owns a still of exquisite construction.
The alcohol boils
Through magnetic coils.
She says that it's "proof by induction."

There once was a man from Toledo
who had a libido the size of a mosquito
his wife did complain
until Dick became Jane
now she dances the show at the Lido

That woman, once man, from Toledo
missed the part that filled out his Speedo
she called her physician
because she was wishin'
she could go back to being a guido

Her doc's hands were steady as timber
his mind was sure and limber
he was ready to start
but he'd misplaced THE part
and he truly couldn't re-member

Applause. Groan.
Laugh. Moan.
Not a tome.
Worse, a "poem".

A rabbi named Roy and a priest named Scott
enjoyed a lunch at a trendy hot spot
the priest said, "Hey Roy,
let's go screw an altar boy."
and the rabbi replied, "Out of what?"
