First of all, thanks to all entrants in this year’s contest, and special thanks to A.C. Teathorn, who kindly agreed to adjudicate this year. Both the volume and quality of the entries makes judging a difficult job, and it’s always nice to have someone else do a difficult job.
Rather than single non-winners out for praise, which only risks pissing people off, let me say only that A.C. Teathorn and I agreed on the high quality of most entries and think you people are really great.
For the first time (I think, and I’m too lazy to check past contests, plus it’s Valentine’s Day and I have to go make waffles in a second) we have a tie for first place, which is the only place that will win an actual prize, seeing as how I am not made of books. So, without further ado, our winners:
Mr. TC: First Place, for the sweetest limerick of this year’s contest
Ms. MN: First Place, for being a genius, among other things.
Thanks to everyone who participated.
Mr. Cand Ms. MN, your prizes are as good as in the mail, as soon as I get around to binding them. Please email me your preferred mailing addresses.
Ah Tony’s the registered keeper
And Muireann the fearless thrill seeker
We’re dwarfed in their presence
And we dwarves smell unpleasant
And now we are simply The Little People
Fun contest, Mig! My favorite of all the limericks is the one posted under the name Peter Oliver.
Ms. Mary Sunshine would like to formally thank Ms. Muireann Noonan for the inspired limerick about her person, and wishes Ms. Noonan many wonderful things. Cheers!
There were some wonderful entries this year. Very hard to pick the winners. Glad I didn’t have to.
