    Our stock is too low to trade-off,
    My friends are about to get laid off
    And the future looks grim
    For those ever so dim
    To invest all their money with Madoff

    There once was a mayor from Boston
    Whose sentences you could get lost in
    He garbled his words
    And mispronounced verbs
    I wonder come re-election, it will cost him

    Christian Bale, the tough Caped Crusader
    Was more recently made Taped Tirader.
    It remains to be seen,
    Whether being so mean’s
    His salvation or his terminator.

    Well, Manny is set up out west.
    Here's hoping it's all for the best.
    Now he's so far off
    (that's a pun - here's a cough)
    I'm thinking he'll get lots of rest.

    A rag from the Chester of Dor
    Ran limericks far worse than poor
    with nary a rhythm
    nor meter within them
    They're sure not to enter the lore

    There once was a candidate Palin
    Who sank at the polls and was tailin'
    So she courted Limbaugh
    and defended the war
    but her campaign ended up failin'

    A thief from New York was named Madoff
    With a wife who he handsomely paid off
    Will she stick by his side?
    Have they no sense of pride?
    How much of the loot has she mailed off?

    A windbag from Florida named Rush
    Found around pain pills he was a lush
    He must now be trippin'
    Or it's somethin' he's sippin'
    That he can't blame the failures on Bush

    A veep from Wyoming named Dick
    While in office was often quite sick
    From whence did he start
    To not have a heart?
    The list of his crimes will grow thick.

    Pat's Participle

    An irishman came from the Auld Sod

    To Boston for some beans and some cod

    While he drank his own health

    He remarked to his self

    Whilst I am here I must also get scrod.

    A museum that nobody knows
    was recently told it would close.
    Art-lovers were angered.
    The family clamored,
    arose, said "The Rose is a rose!"

    A group in New York drew some notice
    For the size of their undeserved bonus
    You must commit suicide
    or we'll tax your backside
    Cried senators avoiding the onus

    Is it just me, or does the panel that selected the finalists not understand what a limerick is? Only a couple of the entries actually qualify as limericks.

    And what does that stupid non-limerick about Sarah Palin have to do with Boston?

    It's not just you. It may be just me and you, but it's not just you. That's why I posted this limerick after reading the editors' suggestions:

    nor meter within them

    [Quote]One late night in middle March
    I recall earlier the bandleader's arch

    I was strolling through Thomas Park
    My heart so full of glee

    My heart was all aflutter
    as I lay down in the gutter
    when a pig came by and lay down by my side

    My heart was all aflutter
    as I laid there in the gutter
    When a woman passing by was heard to say

    "You can tell a man who boozes
    by the company he chooses . . ."
    And the pig got up and slowing walked away.[/Quote]

    The way that I heard it many years ago was:

    Twas the pig faire last September
    A day I well remember
    I was walking up and down in drunken pride
    When my knees began to flutter
    I sank down in the gutter
    And a pig came up and lay down by me side

    As I lay there in the gutter
    Thinking thoughts I can not utter
    I thought I heard a passing lady say
    "You can tell the man who boozes
    "By the comp'ny that he chooses!"
    And with that the pig got up and walked away.

    Neither version is original, nor a limerick, but great verse for St. Paddy's none the less!

    What’s a limerick, Daddy?



    The limericks choosen for Boston (9)

    Have seemingly simply been tossed in (9)

    The jury slept through school (6)

    And so broke every rule (6)

    A dense fog they seemed to be lost in. (9)
