Or say "Alexa, enable LimerGeek - Limerick Collection"

Alexa, you beautiful voice, you dream of all geek girls and boys. Be kind, if you will, and use this new skill, to recite me a Lim'rick of choice.

Note: LimerGeek is pronounced &quot;limmer geek&quot;, like Limerick - not like in &quot;lime&quot;<br/><br/>***<br/><br/>What will this skill do, take a guess.<br/>Go on, try it out - it's a bless!<br/>You're in need of a rhyme<br/>and it will in no time<br/>read a Lim'rick - not more and not less.<br/><br/>***<br/><br/>Well, actually there is a bit more to it. In addition to a random Limerick, you can also ask for a modern Limerick (that is, a Limerick published in the current century), by saying one of the following:<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek for a (modern/contemporary/recent) one<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek for a (modern/contemporary/recent) Limerick<br/><br/>Alternatives to &quot;modern&quot; are: contemporary, recent, new<br/>And who knows, what the future holds? ;-)<br/><br/>And you can even choose a century by saying one of these:<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek for a 19th century Limerick<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek for a Limerick from the 21st century<br/><br/>If you prefer to stick to more traditional Limericks, there are two options:<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek for an old Limerick<br/>=&gt; Only returns Limericks from before the 21st century<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek for a (classic/traditional) Limerick<br/>=&gt; Returns Limericks that adhere to a more traditional form in terms of rhyming and content, leaving out more experimantal forms or political content, but still including modern Limericks regardless of publication date.<br/><br/>You can also put these restrictions in place for all future requests for a random Limerick, by saying:<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek to restrict to (modern/contemporary/recent/old/classic/traditional/19th century) Limericks<br/>...and disable this restriction in order to receive all Limericks again, by saying:<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek to unrestrict<br/>- Alexa ask LimerGeek to return all Limericks again<br/><br/>If you want to hear the last Limerick again, try one of the following:<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek to repeat<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek to repeat the last one<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek to repeat the last Limerick<br/><br/>You can also ask for the author of the last Limerick you heard, just ask:<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek who wrote that<br/>- Alexa, ask LimerGeek for the author<br/>Additional information will be provided on a card in the Alexa App<br/><br/>A special thanks goes out to @Limericking and @Limerick_News on Twitter for providing their contemporary Limericks to the collection.<br/>If you're interested in contributing your own Limericks, feel free to contact us at amazon-dev@48design.com
