Final Round of the Limerick Chick Contest. VOTE!

 

Who’ll be The Limerick Chick?
You readers get to help pick
We have the top three
They’re brilliant, you see
Such an homage to Saint Pat-er-ick

The blogosphere has winnowed 30 entries to 8.

Here are our finalists. Vote for your favorite by 8 pm Tuesday night (March 16, MST). The winner will be announced on St Patrick’s Day.

Congratulations to these finalists:

And an additional shout out to these limericists for for sharing their very witty 5-liners with us: Wishing 4 One, Wise Guy, Suzy, Stirrup Queen, Missy, Miss Tori, Miss La, Michelle, Fertility Chick, Calliope, Audrey.

Now, just TRY to pick one of these eight. And VOTE on the sidebar.

1. ParenthoodForMe
I’m an Irish gal who drinks whisky
Sometimes I go home and get frisky.
When the good deed is done.
I’m Wishing 4 One.
Or at least eat some spam and some latke.

2. Kym
Bionic are two blogging Mamas.
Between them they have three vaginas.
Their humor is sassy,
and if they should ask me,
I’d leave Frank and make them my lovers.

3 Kristin
Infertility, needles, and loss
are three things we’d want to toss
like garbage in a can
Instead we will band
Into groups ‘cause of Mel whose the boss

4. JRS
No I’m not pregnant just fat
Would love to have a child named Matt
I hope stirrup socks
don’t bring her hard knocks
or else she might adopt a childlike cat

5. JJ
There’s a blogger named Suzy who’s a knitter
She tweets a lot on twitter
She sure is sweet with all those tweets
Cause she supports every person she meets

6. Emmy

You could have knocked me down with a feather

But the Stirrup Queen brought us together

With lots of support

From a great cohort
Through tough times I better could weather

7. Eden
There once was a gal named Melissa
Whose infertility was a Right Royal Pisser
She needn’t have fussed
Coz it led her to us
Now we’re all lining up just to kissa!

8. Alana
In this world of IF I’ve been dumped,
Despite my husband having humped.
Gals like Mrs. Gamgee pull me through,
We still hope one day it will be true…
That our stomachs will be baby bumped.

To all entrants and voters, I say, Go raibh maith agaibh!

Limerick Chick Voting Round 3

Below is the last of three sets of entries in the 2010 Limerick Chick Contest. Find out the top two limericks from Flight 2 that will advance to the final round, below.

Poll is on the upper-right sidebar ===>

Thirty poems came in under the wire
Five lines each has to inspire
They mention blog friends
The fun never ends
Of reading them, I do not tire.

Because of the large number of entries, we have three flights. Below you’ll find the 9 entries for the second set. Vote for your favorite one before Friday at 8 pm (MST).

The top two vote-getters will advance to the Final round, which begins March 12. The winners from Flight 2 are ParenthoodForMe and Kym. Congratulations, you two, and thanks to the others for giving us all the chuckles.

As a refresher, the winners from Flight 1 are Alana, Kristin 2 and JRS, the latter two in a tie.

On St Patrick’s Day, I’ll announce the winning limerick, according to the voters.

And here are the limericious entries for Flight 3

1. Michelle
To make our blogs better
Alison is clever
Creating amazing backdrops
Be them oceans or teardrops
For our words that live forever

2. JJ
There’s a blogger named Suzy who’s a knitter
She tweets a lot on twitter
She sure is sweet with all those tweets
Cause she supports every person she meets

3. Emmy
Missy’s a kindhearted infertile

Conceiving is moving like a turtle
Just relax someone said
And hop into bed
To them she just wanted to hurtle

4. Suzy
there exists a lady in the house of jeans
who will help you out by any means
but be fast when you put that dish in the sink
cause she will clean it before you can blink

5. Eden
There once was a gal named Melissa
Whose infertility was a Right Royal Pisser
She needn’t have fussed
Coz it led her to us
Now we’re all lining up just to kissa!

6. Michelle 2
This IF is makes everything so hazy
My ovaries are lazy
If it gets any worse
I’ll end up in a book called Tales of a Batty Nurse
And end up going crazy

7. JJ 2
Shes got a story to tell
(un)complicated , and with only one L
There’s lots of corn in site
And she’ll make you a custom invite
So visit her site, she sure is swell

8. Emmy 2
You could have knocked me down with a feather

But the Stirrup Queen brought us together
With lots of support
From a great cohort

Through tough times I better could weather

9. Suzy 2
there is a cool chick at the happy hours
who likes to knit with a lot of brain power
she really does bake
a delicious cupcake
and some even look like a flower

Flight 1 Entries

1. Kristin

There once was a superhero named Kym

who partnered with Miss W, her IM

They made me laugh ’til I cried

and my son nearly died*

all from a convo started on a whim

2. Alana

In this world of IF I’ve been dumped,

Despite my husband having humped.

Gals like Mrs. Gamgee pull me through,

We still hope one day it will be true…

That our stomachs will be baby bumped.

3. Miss Tori

My eggs, they were a cookin‘,

But good they were not lookin‘.

And just like JourneyGirl,

Bruce and I took a whirl,

And now the fats a bookin‘!

4. Stirrup Queen

There once was a Dragondreamer

Who was quite the post weaver

She contemplated UFOs

And crocheted hats with bows

And nothing ever seemed to peeve her.

5. Wishing 4 One

I live in the land of pharaohs

where baby makin’s been dry as scarecrows

Been sayin’ is 2010 my year yet?

And saying over and over again Are We There Yet?

Hey I’m Trying not to scream

but damn i’m an Anxious Mummy indeed!

6. Miss La

Twelve pregnant gals at once I know,

And still here am I with no beau,

“All in good time,”

My friends do chime.

If their babes wed ere me- Oh no!!

7. JRS

No I’m not pregnant just fat

Would love to have a child named Matt

I hope stirrup socks

don’t bring her hard knocks

or else she might adopt a childlike cat

8. Kristin 2

Infertility, needles, and loss

are three things we’d want to toss

like garbage in a can

Instead we will band

Into groups ‘cause of Mel whose the boss

9. Tori 2

Too many pounds I’ve got

I need to lose a lot.

I got the band

It gives me a hand

To reach The Sweet Spot.

10. Stirrup Queen 2

Lindsay, obsessed with her Greys

Could sit on the sofa for days

And stare at McDreamy

Without getting screamy

Though Patrick makes it hard to behave
