Salon limerick contest

After a hiatus, Salon's limerick contest returns with assessments of college football, Obama's cabinet and more.


A Notre Dame Fan Laments

We left behind bleak Northern Lights,

For a land of bikini'd Hamites.

We went down to defeat,

And were heard in retreat:

"At least my house doesn't have taillights."

James Lewis



To sit at the Cabinet table,

Obama picks Senator Hagel.

It would have been nice,

To have Dr. Rice,

But it was more than he could finagle.
