LEWINSKY and KACZYNSKI LIMERICK

The Washington Post runs a weekly contest in its Style section called the “Style Invitational”. The requirements this week were to use the two words Lewinsky (The Intern) and Kaczynski (the Unabomber) in the same limerick.

The following winning entries, remember, were printed in the newspaper.

Third place:

There once was a gal named Lewinsky
Who played on a flute like Stravinsky
‘Twas “Hail to the Chief”
On this flute made of beef
That stole the front page from Kaczynski.


Second place:

Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsky,
“We don’t want to leave clues like Kaczynski, Since you made such a mess, Use the hem of your dress And please wipe that stuff off of your chinsky.”


And the winning entry:

Lewinsky and Clinton have shown
What Kaczynski must surely have known
That an intern is better
Than a bomb in a letter
When deciding how best to be blown.

  1. Actually, these limericks did NOT come from The Style Invitational, The Washington Post’s weekly humor/wordplay contest. However, we do run humor just as funny and sometimes ALMOST as risque as these; see http://www.washingtonpost.com/styleinvitational for this week’s contest and and index of many previous columns. (And on Sept. 3, we’ll have the results of a limerick contest!)
