False or awkward meter: Asimov was certainly educated enough to understand the correct meter of a limerick, and for the most part he gets them right. The King of Limericks is committed to the democratization of philosophy and spirituality, and to the idea that limericks can deliver something far more enriching than just dirty-minded double entendre. An idiosyncratic contract is quickly drawn up, whereby the reader is promised a pun—the more flagrant the better—in the last line of each quatrain.

Something about the whimsical rhyme scheme, the bouncing meter and the sense of tension created in lines 3 and 4 seem to make the limerick especially suitable for the lewd and off-color subject matter. It was customary at the time for limericks to accompany an absurd illustration of the same subject, and for the final line of the limerick to be a variant of the first line ending in the same word, but with slight differences that create a nonsensical, circular effect.
