Elevating The Discourse

A friend emailed me these winners from a Washington Post Style section contest, in which participants were asked to use both "Lewinsky" (The Intern) and "Kaczynski" (The Unabomber) in the same limerick. They may be old for all I know, but I'm seeing them for the first time, and the last two made me laugh. Thanks, Randy.

Third Place winner:

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.
