When Irish eyes are smilin' . . .
But I digress.
It's a holiday that can be as much or as little as you choose to make it. I tend to be a minimalist, so the "little" part really appeals to me.
So knowing I made a goal to have a silly, pointless contest on my blog this year, I thought why not. This contest will run from the moment this is posted until midnight EST on Saturday, 20 March 2010.
I really wanted to make the prize super Irish, but all I could come up with was beer and potatoes. Somehow that didn't sound very exciting. So instead, since Olive Garden's signature color is green, up for grabs is a $25 gift card for there.
Here are the rules:
- Make up a funny and CLEAN limerick and post it in the comments. (Oh, heck, I don't even care if you didn't make it up, so long as it's clean and funny.)
- Did I mention it has to be clean?
- I, as supreme chancellor and all-mighty contest thrower, get to pick my favorite to win.
- I'll post the winner next Sunday.
Limerick /lim-rik/: a five-lined poem with aabba rhyme scheme. I could go on about the meter and syllable counts, but instead, I'll give an example:
There once was a girl from DC,
Who lived far from all her fam'ly
She blogged every day
So in touch she could stay
Then forgot to go out and sight see.
Okay, I'm no poet. I fully admit this. But you get the idea.
Please note, this contest is completely subjective. Anyone can enter (even relatives, gasp!). Odds of winning are about 1 in 4 since that's about how many people comment on my blog. Consider all that legal mumbo jumbo said. You know: Taxes yada, yada, yada. Liability blah, blah, blah. You get the point.
Good luck, and I can't wait to read your entries!
UPDATE: You may enter as many limericks as you want.
