I'm honored and delighted! What a fun contest. I didn't hold out a lot of hope, as the competition was pretty fierce.

If I’d lost, it would surely be sad to me.
If I won, would the losers get mad at me?
But no one’s thrown curses
At my humble verses.
I’d just like to thank the Academy…

Yes, Josh should win easily with that effort.

See, I was right. Was the competition a fix?.....not for me to say ;-)

There once was a man, in the Café he did lurk
I'm truly a fan, although I'll sound like a jerk
late to the game
Dill is his name
He should stop trying rhyme and keep doing coin work

Congrats are now due to some.
The rest of us had lots of fun.
Let's go for a drink.
I'm too tired to think
And want to go lay in the sun.

Regards, Steve

I agree, can you please lock this thread
All this rhyming has gone to my head
It won't go away
There's more every day
It will continue for years I dread

I'm saddened that the winner failed to meet the traditional standards of the limerick. On the other hand I'm in favor of anything that inspires a limerick contest.

The judging criteria was revealed after the contest closed. As I said earlier, perhaps this was done for a reason ;-)

To be fair, all the criteria David mentioned are criteria that form up a limerick anyway. Nothing new or special was added by him. All limericks should have good rhyming and rhythm where necessary. Nothing new there. If the contest was to write a limerick related to magic and you were not sure how to write a good limerick, google is your friend. Here is one for example: http://www.wikihow.com/Write-a-Limerick

Absolutely certain there was no reason. Can't believe anyone would be suspicious.

It's true, I didn't start off with a name/place in the first line, as has become traditional...but David's post on the second page stated that the limerick did NOT need to conform to the name/place criteria. So I wasn't breaking any rules; I was following a stated allowance!

Just in case anyone failed to notice I was kidding about the traditional limerick statement. Man...gotta lead some people down the trail I guess...

Oh...well, I'm from NY, I'm professionally gullible. Smile But it's true, there are two ways in which my limerick wasn't traditional: no name/place in the first line, AND it was CLEAN!

Too late for the prize but not for this one

I took a trip to Abracadabra
supposed to lead me to cornucopia.
I purchased a strange hat
from a skilled acrobat,
and the matt hat had a strange persona.

So I decided to teach that new friend;
and he learned playing games of pretend.
If you are ever blue
or have little to do;
Watch my hat, he’ll please you without end.
