They're not limericks, but here's a sample of "Columbo":
Columbo he lived over in Spain
Where doctors are not many
The only doctor in his town
Was a bastard jew named Benny
To Benny then Columbo went
With countenance so placid
And Benny filled Columbo's prick
With Muriatic Acid.
There is quite a lot of this, and it does not get better.
There are also many other poems, some of them fascinating.
