Archaeologists have found the world's oldest limerick written on the wall of a cave in Ireland. It is in an ancient Gaelic language and estimated to be over a thousand years old. They managed to translate it and it goes something like this:

There once was a man in a cave
who smelled bad and needed a shave
He wrote on the walls
and painted his balls
He just never learned to behave.


They do not know who wrote it because he did not leave a signature. It's just as well, because he probably went by an alias.
