Limerick Fest's 10 Best


After much procrastination, I would like to present to you my eShamrocks; the top ten sweetest entries from my 2007 San Patricio Limerick Festival, as determined by a panel of distinguished judges... me alone. As always, I favored the rhythmically correct and the ones that echoed my political bias. I excluded my own entries, as well as the ones that were posted after the midnight deadline.


Enjoy!




I'm starting to think that Obama
Could rescue us all from the trauma
That W started
With Cheney, whole-hearted.
'cause Hilary's way too much drama.

Condolences dear Mr. Scooter

You gave your neck up for the Shooter
But soon the Decider
Ole Pardon Provider
Will be your number one rooter.

Bin Laden is fifty today,
To him I have one thing to say
Wherever you are(no matter how far),
I hope you don't live to see May

Now Scooter's a brazenfaced liar
Who's facing juridical fire.
He flouted the law,
But his plan had a flaw;
May he soon be in prison attire.

okay, I took the "what rhymes with global warming?" question as a challenge...

How to escape global warming?
Develop sci-fi terraforming!
Forget cleaner cars --let's colonize Mars!
(It's better than more Desert Storm-ing.)

Upon watching "Who Killed The Electric Car?"
With scientists all in agreement
the truth still remains inconvenient.
Technology's grown
(there's computers in phones!)
so why are our engines not clean yet?

It is spring again here in the north
And all hormones begin springing forth
I'd be willing to pay
For a roll in the hay
And for the second, the third, and the fourth.

The Gardasil mandate smells funny
It would make Merck’s financials quite sunny
They’re in such a big hurry
That it makes me worry
It’s not about health—it’s the money.

I once went to bed with this bum
Who peaced out before I could come.
So I stuck out my chin
And stayed and peaced in
And came by my own rule of thumb.

I guess I was Baptist too long
To want to prove stuff right or wrong.
I'm weary of judging.
Must we hoist the bludgeon
On people who like to suck schlong?

Honorable Mention:
There once was a bunch of old wrecks
Who could not bear for girls to have sex
This they could not confess
Without seeming a mess
So they invented an entire pseudo-science about life beginning at conception, “fetal pain,” and Plan B as abortion, and did everything they could to divert state and federal funding into so-called “pregnancy crisis centers” and overturn Roe v. Wade. Those fucking puritan nitwits.
