Limerick Chick Contest: Final Round

March 13, 2008

in Limerick Chick

The blogosphere has spoken, favoring three limericks among the 25 entries in the Limerick Chick contest.

Now for the general election. Please select your ONE favorite ditty and vote on the sidebar.

Polls close late Sunday evening and the winner will be announced on St Patrick’s Day. (my daughter is having minor surgery very early that morning so I’ll get the post up after she’s sedated and I’m waiting around in the WiFi’d hospital, trying to keep my mind busy).

Here are your three choices (in no particular order):

1.
This blogger enjoys words and their histories
She takes photos of life’s little mysteries —
Always a practical sort
Who makes a mean torte
And whose humor is filled with morbidities.

2.
There was a Black surro named
Kymberli
who played a good joke at delivery.
The nurse with affright
exclaimed, “This baby is White!”
Kym pointed, “He’s for them and not me.”

3.
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.”

Vote on the sidebar and return Monday (sometime) for the announcement.

My compliments to Niobe, Kymberli and Slouching Mom for reaching the final round. An additional shout out to Magpie, Stirrup Queens, Painted Maypole, and Ms Planner for sharing their very witty 5-liners with us.

Furrow was inspired limericize me, and I’m so flattered I want to close with it here.

This new-agey blogger named Lori
has insights that make me cry, “Glory!”
But she hides a surprise:
though she writes of third eyes,
she’s Republican down at her core, see?



Now, get out the vote!

Thanks Lori for putting this contest together! (and I’d say this even if my limerick hadn’t made it to the final round)
