Weekly Whistleblower Limerick Contest

One More 2017 Year-End Review

image005This week, everybody who thought all those year-end-review columns were just a big waste of time, e-mailed an entry to the Whistleblower Limerick Contest.

The winner is Larry Listmaker, who says the biggest problem with The Blower is that it can make the truth sound like a lie and something they just made up sound like the truth, and you’re never quite sure which is which. Larry wins a “We Don’t Need No Stinking Facts Checked” T-shirt, tickets to the Proofreaders Hall of Fame, and a date with the news bimbo of his choice to the Copy Editors Ball. His winning limerick is:

The biggest story we found last year
Will have you crying in your beer
‘Cause between you and me
What you got from DC
Was just a big kick in the rear.

And from the Anderson Laureate we have another Partisan Poem:
The biggest story we found last year
When D-RATS Obstruction went into high gear
And with their screw-ups and scandals
Which the press always mishandles
We were hoping an indictment was near.

The first line of next week’s limerick is:
“So what should Conservatives do now?”
