Rhetorical question. The REAL vote this week is among limericks. You’ll be able to vote twice, ethically. Here’s how it will work.
Through Thursday (March 13), we’ll have a “primary.” Any interested person can vote once per ISP, and we’ll narrow down to the top 3 entries. Limericks are found at the bottom of this post. Look over the very clever entries and pick your very favorite. Warning: it won’t be easy.
On Friday morning, I’ll put up a new poll that includes only the 3 top vote-getters. Come back then or sometime over the weekend to help determine who gets crowned the top Limerick Chick on St Patrick’s Day.
So vote early (now) and vote often (this weekend)!
Vote now. Come back Friday.

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.”

So, Beck’s blog is chiefly comprised
Of recipes, deftly revised,
And stories that may be
‘Bout Boy, Girl, or Baby
With WORDS that are CAPITALIZED

I’m not one for praying or mass.
I don’t like sea bream or bass.
But I’m given to braying
A favorite saying
The apposite “this too shall pass“.

There is a deft writer named Niobe
who uses allegory and euphony and hyperbole.
The photography – classic,
the writing – fantastic,
though some might need use of a dictionary.

A blog that I cannot explain
Is Amelies Welt, which contains
Both German and Eng-
Lish, but, the thing is
Amelie’s living in Spain
I. Stirrup Queens
Follistim and Menopur grow them
Lupron and Ganirelix slow them
Count them and measure
Treat each as a treasure
Follicles–can’t see them or hold them

I like to read Slouching Past Forty
Even if that fair blogger’s a shorty
I’ll forgive her that ill
since she has mad skills
I don’t care if she’s only 5’4″, see?

My reader says five hundred two
these posts, it claims, are all new.
Where to begin?
I think I’ll dig in
With the dude who writes at One Plus Two.
O. Slouching Mom #1
About books and shelves she’s quite clever
A good pun she’ll forsake almost never
One spouse puts on plays
The other spends her days
Finding people shelter, hoping it’s forever.
P. Slouching Mom #2
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.
Q. Slouching Mom #3
And this woman’s words are so lush
Her prose so dense and rich I must gush
She’s got a wee boy
Is growing more joy
Don’t tell her she’s beautiful — she’ll blush.
R. Slouching Mom #4
This lady is astoundingly prolific
She knows that I think she’s terrific
She lives where it’s hot
Suffers mishaps quite a lot
This latest catastrophe’s horrific.
The final one was not able to be included in the voting, but feel free to leave a comment for the author.

There once was a Cowboy from Portland.
Blood, needles and gore, he could not stand.
So imagine his chagrin,
When his knocked up wife said to him:
As I see it , you will be in L&D holding my hand.
