WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF THE POETRY ON THIS SITE?
POEMS: Poetry appearing on this site was written (unless otherwise indicated) by Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym), and for the most part contributed to the online humour dictionary-site...
OEDILF (Omnificent English Dictionary iLimerick Form). In its 15 years of existence, OEDILF has worked its way alphabetically from Aa- to Gr-, with the goal of accumulating a verse defining every meaning of every word in the English language. This co-operative project has  accumulated over 107,000 carefully edited limericks, with completion date estimated to be around the year 2065. In the past five years, Giorgio has contributed over 450 poems to the project; the site's accession number for the verses is indicated at the bottom of the relevant slides in our presentations.
