Are there any extremely popular short funny verses, which had become "memes" long before this word was invented?
Example (warning: black humour, possible triggers):
Little Willie hung his sister
She was dead before we missed her.
Willies always up to tricks
Ain`t he cute? He's only six.
Something like this will do, too:
Down the river drifts an axe
From the town of Byron.
Let it float by itself,
B###dy piece of iron.
