Salon is having a limerick contest…

 

Five rhyming lines might be the ideal way to describe Mitt Romney’s ill-starred campaign fundraiser in Florida. If you can put a limerick together, you can enter Salon’s contest.

Here are a couple of competitors:

At a meeting in Boca Raton,

Mitt Romney was filmed by a phone

Limerick King Edward Lear

as he quipped to his host,

“Through this race I would coast,

If I just had a darker skin tone.”

 

This man of the uppermost class,

Who hopes to gain critical mass,

Leaves nothing to chance, sir,

But pulls every answer

Reliably out of his ass.

Send your entries to limericks@salon.com. The deadline is 5 p.m. ET on Sunday. Please include your name and hometown. Good luck!
