Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

The first round of competitors in the 2012 Limerick Contest are now available for voting!
We've got some excellent limericks this week, so go take a look, have a chuckle, and Like
(Facebook) or +1 (Google+) your favorite entry. The limerick with the most Likes/+1s by
Thursday at 5:00 pm (EST) will be the winner of Round 1, and will move on to the Final
Round of voting at the end of Fund Drive!

View this week's limerick contestants, as well as some excellent limericks from the LINGUIST
List crew, here:


If you haven't yet had a chance to submit your work of limerick genius, never fear-- you
can submit entries for Round 2 until Thursday, 3/15, at noon EST. If you've already
submitted an entry for Round 1, no problem! Any author can contribute as many limericks as
they want, for as many weeks as they want. Far be it from us to constrain our readers'
creative prowess.

Submit your limericks to anna [at] linguistlist [dot] org to enter the contest!

The winners of each round will receive a prize, with an even more special prize for the
Ultimate Limerick Champion of the Final Round. So get your poetry-writing hands warmed up,
pull out your rhyming dictionary, and get to penning those limericks!

May the muses be with you,
The LINGUIST List Crew
