The limerick is thought to take its name from the City of Limerick in Eire. It became popular in the mid-nineteenth century after the London-born poet Edward Lear published his Book of Nonsense. So it's a type of poem named after an Irish city and it was first popularised by an Englishman. But what do you call a limerick that's been written by a Scotsman? Why, a McLIMERICK, of course! COONT THUM TEN is a collection of more than 100 McLimericks. They've all been penned by the Ayrshire writer and poet Angus Shoor Caan as a follow-up to his nine earlier collections, which together amount to over 1,000 published McLimericks. In true Scots fashion, the McLimericks in all ten collections are witty, irreverent and sometimes bawdy. 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 you'll be tickled by them as well. So please delve into COONT THUM TEN. And if you like what you read go grab copies of those earlier collections.
