Limericks -


This came to me as a Forward. Enjoy!!



The Washington Post runs a weekly contest in its Style section called the “Style Invitational.”

The requirements one week were to use the two words, “Lewinsky” (the Intern) and “Kaczynski,” (the Unabomber) in the same limerick. Now, remember, the following winning entries were actually printed verbatim in the newspaper, no bleeps or xxx's:


Third place:

There once was a girl named Lewinsky
Who played on a flute like Stravinsky
'Twas “Hail to the Chief”
On this flute made of beef
That stole the front page from Kaczynski.


Second place:

Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsky,
We don't want to leave clues like Kaczynski,
Since you made such a mess,
Use the hem of your dress
And please wipe that stuff off your chinsky.


And the winning entry:

Lewinsky and Clinton have shown
What Kaczynski must surely have known,
That an intern is better
Than a bomb in a letter,
When deciding how best to be blown.
