Limerick of the Week (49)

It’s time to announce the latest Limerick of the Week based on submissions (on this blog and on Facebook) in last week’s Limerick-Off. I’m very pleased to announce the winning Limerick of the Week and the Honorable Mentions:

Congratulations to DAVID MCCORMICK a/k/a AdamantYves who wins Limerick of the Week for this funny verse:

A fellow who ran a campaign
Had been told by his betters
“Avoid silent letters!”;
Good advice – alas, given in vaign.

And congratulations to these Honorable Mention winners (in random order) Robert Schechter, Colleen Murphy, Johanna Richmond, and RJ Clarken. Here are their respective Honorable Mention limericks:

Robert Schechter:

A fellow who ran a campaign
Could scarcely conceal his disdain
For folks unlike him
Whose prospects were dim
Since he’d downsized their asses at Bain.

Colleen Murphy:

A woman who ran a campaign
Got stuck in a downpour of rain.
Her speech it was flawless
Except she was braless.
Her attempts to retract were in vain.

Johanna Richmond:

G-O-P-ers who’ve waged a campaign
Against women: You’d better abstain
From believing your dicks
Make us powerless chicks
Or bleed votes from the jugular vein.

Rj Clarken:

A fellow who ran a campaign
On a platform of eminent domain
Was surprised when his lands
Went for government plans.
“I didn’t mean me,” he’d complain.

Congratulations again to all the winners for your wonderful limericks. And thanks to everyone for your fun submissions.

In the next couple of minutes I’ll be posting a new Limerick-Off, which gives you yet another opportunity to win Limerick Of The Week.
