And the shamrock goes to…


Erica (Parenthood for Me) extends her winning streak to two with this limerick, which garnered 40% of the nearly 200 votes cast:

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.

Alana‘s poem had lots of fans, too — a valiant contest all the way around. I declare all 8 of the finalists Limeristas Extraordinaire.

Erica is donating her prize money to Share Southern Vermont, which serves families grieving the loss of a child through pregnancy loss, stillbirth, or infant death. And check out how Erica’s own organization helps others to build their families.

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

Happy St Patrick’s Day, peoples.
