"Ready for dinner"
After a hiatus, Salon’s limerick contest returns with assessments of college football, Obama’s cabinet and more.
A Notre Dame Fan Laments
We left behind bleak Northern Lights,
For a land of bikini’d Hamites.
We went down to defeat,
And were heard in retreat:
“At least my house doesn’t have taillights.”
To sit at the Cabinet table,
Obama picks Senator Hagel.
It would have been nice,
To have Dr. Rice,
But it was more than he could finagle.
From Delaware hails our VP,
A fiscal cliff jumper is he.
He’ll work on your pecs,
Offer old ladies sex,
Won’t someone please put this guy on TV?
Where’s Obama’s diversity minder–
His “qualified female” staff finder?
He’s named white guys galore,
To positions top-drawer,
Perhaps he should borrow Mitt’s binder.
Send entries to email@example.com along with your name and hometown. The deadline is Friday at noon eastern and we’ll publish our favorites on Sunday . Good luck!
