Biblical Limericks: He Was Really Alone in that Garden

Adam had to face reality:
while the animals had parity,
he was left all alone
with no one he could bone,
unless he tried bestiality.

Genesis 2: 18 – 20

Rabbi Eleazar, a Talmudic sage, interpreted the Genesis story this way.  “This teaches us that Adam had intercourse with all the animals and all the beasts, but he was satisfied only when he had intercourse with Eve.” 

Quoted in Sex and Family in the Bible by Raphael Patai, Doubleday & Co., Inc, Garden City, NY, 1959. Page 178

Another limerick on this same passage.
