Limerick Challenge! One Day Contest for Ticket (for 2) to see Religulous in Charlotte

Hone your limerick writing skills and start posting the little snippets of poetry this morning. Post them here on BlueNC and we'll vote for the ones we like best....or just give the tickets to the one or two people who bother to write a limerick, heh heh.

I have 5 tickets that will each allow two people entry into a screening of Bill Maher's new movie Religulous. The movie is being shown in Charlotte on Wednesday, October 1, at 7:00 p.m. The ticket clearly states to arrive early as there is a chance of over booking of seats. The screening will be held at the excellent Manor Theater.

We already have a BlueNC and friends crowd going to see the movie on Wednesday. Here's your chance to join in the fun. Edit: This is the new Bill Maher move. A trailer can be found here.

Hey...enter a limerick even if you don't want to go. Win a ticket for a friend.

I'll mail the tickets out on Monday or you can meet me at the Manor at 6:00 p.m.(sharp) on Wednesday before the show.

I'll get us all started........

There once was a woman named Palin.
Whose team in the polls was a trailin'.
She opened her yammer.
The GOoPers did clamor.
But into the void she went flailin'.

I know, I stink. Oh...and by the way....I was given these tickets as a freebie by the company promoting the film. There were no strings attached. I/We do not have to promote the film or review it in any way. Just wanted to get this disclaimer out there.


I'll play

There once was a man named McCain
For whom stayin awake was a pain
So in the debate
He would stare and berate
Though his carping was mostly in vain.

(No tickets for me, the plane flight from Colorado would be a killer) :)


We'll offer your tickets to one of our BlueNC fans in Charlotte.

Thanks for playing.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Execrable limmerick submission

I beg advance forgiveness for the following offense to human ears and sensibilities:

McCain's pick for VP is embarrisin'
Next to Biden she pales in comparison
But her hockey mom schtick
Gave him polling uptick
'Cause right wingers think that she carries him

It's enough to make sane people sick
that McCain thinks a chick is a chick
But Sarah's no Hillary
She makes women look sillery
With or without her lipstick

I'll leave you with this final thought
Can this country so easily be bought
that an angry white man
with his babe-in-a-can
Mean we've suffered 8 years now for naught?

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner!

These are wonderful.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

I'm more of a Haiku chick.

Can't go to Charlotte
And can't write a limerick
McCain/Palin sucks.


I vote for Brunette's series of limericks - delightful!

I'll take a Haiku!

OK folks, Haiku and Limerick challenge now.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

I'll give it a shot

There once was a flipper named Robin
Who's votes up in DC were floppin'
He promised and cried
But alas he just lied
And now for new jobs we're all shoppin'


First time I wrote one of those without curse words or alcohol references!

Everyone Wins!

I have enough tickets to make sure everyone gets to go. Linda, Bru, Working - I'll get yours in the mail or meet you in Charlotte. Pagan - yours will be donated to a local BlueNC fan. Thanks!

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Too late, but it sounded like fun anyway!

There was a Senator named Dole,
Whose actions dug a terrible hole,
With the voters in NC,
'Cause the Senator they didn't see,
Must have passed through the State like a mole...

North Carolina. Turning the South Blue!

North Carolina. Turning the South Blue!

In line with the theme of the movie

I beg like a monk or a Lama,
please God end our national trauma.
Would it really quite trouble you
to get rid of old W,
and replace him with Barack Obama?

I really can't go to Charlotte

I wish I could - I REALLY want to see the movie, but I'm swamped this week and Charlotte is just too far for me to go on a weeknight. So please donate them to worthy BlueNC folks closer to the theater!

A Day Late Limericks

Bailout Blues

They say the lenders' bailout is failing
leaving Main Street and Wall Street a-flailing
My heart is sinking
My stocks are shrinking
Throw the bast*%$s in jail all a-wailing

Buy my House

The housing market is sputtering and stalling
Shifted in reverse--OMG, it's appalling!
My house just won't sell
I think I'm in hell
I'm thrown to my knees, barely crawling

For Twitter Fans:

Like a bee flittering flower to flower
is me twittering hour past hour
Finding friend after friend
on whom I can depend
Wow, Witty Critters, together we're power!

Thanks for the fun contest!


Late yes, but I'll do it for art's sake .... (ack, wheeze)

How did I miss this??? Ok, way late, but I still want to play .....

Since it's Obama that ev'ryone digs,
The Reps have an election to rig.
So on Karl they'll call,
But he'll drop the ball,
Trying to lipstick the pig.

Person County Democrats

I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you? it!

You could have used my tix. Hubby had to go out of town and just couldn't justify taking my 13-yr-old to an R rated movie I hadn't seen yet. Oh well.....we'll get to see it later.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
