Don't say you weren't warned by the title... good (clean) limericks abound.

Well read nonsense.

(5 Sterne)

Well read as usual, since it is Phil. The poems, though, often live of to the title of 'nonsense'. There are a few that I found cute. All in all, a good read/listen.

I listened to this reading because one of my favorite readers presented it. I enjoyed the listen. Totally different listen, very relaxing.
