in Limerick Chick

We have a Grand Champion Limerick Chick of the Uterus. I mean Universe!

The competition was fierce. We had surrogacy. We had fertility meds. We had risque (and hilarious) language. We had dozens of new blogs to check out. Find them all here.

By a teeny-tiny margin (2 votes), however , Niobe prevailed.

Pop on over to Dead Baby Jokes to congratulate her.

Niobe‘s winning entry
A blogger whose name is Niobe
Said, “Look, my name sounds like Nairobi
It isn’t ni-OBE
Doesn’t rhyme with microbe
And if you don’t like it, then blow me.”

A huge round of bloggy applause for all the other Limerick Chicks who sent in their very clever entries. Voting for only one was truly a tough call. You ladies rock! And here is my tribute to you.

The limerick chicks are so beautimus
Composing poems on a computerus
They say “Do whatever you want
With words, images and font
Just no more messing with my hoohahooterus!”

Happy St Patrick’s Day, everyone.

It was the last sentence of this limerick that helped her clinch the title this year. Yay!Lori, sorry I haven’t been online since Friday. I am sorry to hear of the downs (and subsequent ups) of the past few days for you. Hugs.For the record, your college ex’s wife must one massive case of the bad-self-confidences to need a “high ranking” clergy member to dictate an erradication of their pasts. Not to mention going from Starbucks to infidelity in one quick email. Sheesh, lady. Go on with your bad self! :)

I don’t know what’s funnier – the blog title or the limerick. Are people who laugh at both going to hell?
