in Limerick Chick

……………………………………….drumroll, please……………………………………

Congratulations to Erica at ParenthoodForMe! Her entry garnered almost 51% of the votes cast.

Our eggs and sperm lack esteem
Under a microscope they do not gleam
Ain’t the birds and the bees
Nor doing the ol’ dirty deed
Mrs. Spit says things aren’t what they seem.

Keiko of The Infertility Voice came in second in the closest race in the history of the Limerick Chick, owning more than 49% of the votes.

As always I had so much fun hosting this event. Thanks to all who ventured an entry for playing in the green with me.

With her winnings, Erica may choose to support the organization of her choice or take a gift certificate to

Thanks to each of the entrants and finalists and voters — we’ll do it all again next year.

Happy St Patrick’s Day, peoples. Need I pinch you?

Lori, thank you for hosting such a fun contest. And thank you for bringing out a hidden talent that I may have gone my entire life not knowing.
I wish for you to donate to Parenthood for Me.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

You will have to pinch me. I don’t think I own anything green.

Congratulations, Erica!

Wow, what a close race! One vote doesn’t make a difference most of the time in life, but here it seems like each vote really counted.

Oh boy, was that close!

Anyways, both the entries were really nice….Congratulations to Erica for winning it!

What a fun contest! When I was reading them, I could see that it would be close. They were both great!
