Show & Tell: Limerick Chick Entries

March 15, 2009

in Limerick Chick, Show & Tell

**UPDATED WITH VOTING BOOTH OPEN **

Belly on up to the voting booth for the 2009 Limerick Chick Contest! (Poll is on the right sidebar ===============>.)

Because of the large number of entries we’ll have a primary until 10 pm (MDT) Sunday night, after which I’ll be able to announce the top 3 vote-getters.

On Monday we’ll vote again for the best of the best. On St Patrick’s Day, I’ll announce the winning limerick.

So please vote. Now and Monday.

I am so glad I don’t have to make the decision, because each of the entries below is absolutely limericious.

Perfect Moment Monday will be postponed this week, so don’t have one. I mean, if you DO have one, come back a week LATER to tell us about it.

Entries:

1. Martha
There once was a blogger named Lori
Very deserving of honor and glory
She writes of Open Adoption you see
And how it can be
Much is learned from her family’s story

2. Parenthood for Me 1

Infertility Rocks is so full of sass
Her posts are funny and sometimes crass
She knows how to smile
And after awhile
You think we can beat infertility’s a$$!

3. Kalei
I know there are those that can’t have one
A baby I mean, in the tumm
But as Miss Lori will write
you can fight for that right
and a baby adopted might find you

4. Lollipop 1
One day there will be a baby smiling from the back seat
She’ll be ecstatic when at last they do meet
She reworked the whole blogroll
Made sure people were where they should go
And that is why Cassandra is so neat.

5. Lollipop 2
You may know her as the longest running Clicker
She’s taken care of you; that’s why I picked her
In this whole world wide web
She tells of All Things Deb
Her commitment to this community never flickers

6. Lollipop 3
From UTERUS to the LFCA
She has helped so many people along the way
She just drove down to see Cali
For her Internet shower party
She’s Jen who makes you want to say yay!

7. Parenthood for Me 2

I once was scared of the gyno
Now I’ll drop my pants for a rhino
When bad time are worse
There’s blogs like the mrsch
Or instead I can just be a whino

8. Luna 1
Oh how I love to read Lori
You know she can tell a great story
Never know what’s in store
She always leaves you wanting more
BestLight is usually right and never boring!

9. Luna 2
The best haiku promised a prize
To capture with words laughs or cries
It didn’t have to rhyme
They say it’s coming in time
If I ever see it, I’ll be surprised.

10. Terra
There was a youngish mom of the blog
often she typed and wrote in a fog
exploiting her kin
much to their chagrin
for even the dead dog made the blog

11. Dramalish
There once was a wannabe momma,
Who liked to teach English and Drama,
She got up the duff,
But still wrote lots of stuff,
‘Bout her Daily Dramalish-ious Trauma.

12. Kymberli 1
Here is a limerick for all of us-
together we laugh, cry, and fuss.
With a double-fisted zinger
we give infertility the finger,
you sonofabi+ch, you make us all cuss.

13. Kymberli 2
As UTERUS’ first beneficiary,
she was blessed with a healthy, safe pregnancy.
Lover of plaid and blue Grover,
rocks at header makeovers,
Calliope has Snork in her occupancy.

14. Kristin
There once was a community called ALI
filled with heartbreak, hope and , maybes
We use needles and take drugs
Say “F*CK INFERTILITY” and give hugs
All for the hope of a baby.

For more Show & Tell (yes, I’m cheating by piggy-backing on Show & Tell, but *I* sure as hell don’t want to be the one to decide which is best so you all have to) head over to Mel‘s
