Does anyone know the rest of this rhyme, riddle, or joke? I've always heard the first line but never the rest. They use the first line on TV or in movies alot and once the person finishes the first line someone always stops them. I know it's supposed to be a nasty joke or something but I've been dying to know this since I was very young. Do you know how it goes???

Actually there's probably a thousand of them, limericks that start with that phrase that is. My father told me a few he heard in the navy (marching songs) but they really can't repeated here. Sorry.

There are countless variations on the rest of this limerick, but it always ends with two words that, well, rhyme with Nantuckett. And the second word is "it." The rest I will leave, as the TV shows do, to your imagination.
