Hallie's Contest

Hallie, at Wonderful World of Wieners, is running a contest, for which the prize is a Pier 1 gift card. Woohoo! Remember the last contest? She asked us to write haikus about her son, Schmoopy, and I wrote about a bazillion of them and didn't win. Evidently volume wasn't a consideration. Quality counts, dang it! Brown Eyed Girl, over at The Color of Home, won. And she DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A BLOG at the time! Stink! But she does now and I send bloggy love her way. 'Long as she keeps posting pictures of hunky actors sporadically. :)

So no haikus this time (yay!), but something even harder (awww!): the limerick. And it has to be about her wiener dogs. Or any wiener dog. Some of the ones already up are pretty funny (none of the funny ones are mine, BTW). Do you know how difficult it is to write a limerick? Try it! One about wiener dogs! I'm going to try one, just for fun. You may want to turn away. In fact, I'd recommend it.

The dog who ran into the snowbank (Hallie lives in Maine, people)
Up to his eyeballs and nose sank
If he wasn't so small
(Wieners aren't very tall)
Then it could have been seen as a fun prank.

Oh, the humanity! Until I write again ...

Yeh, I'd read that. What the heck is that all about?! Who writes limericks? Drat her for making us work for a prize.

I might have to try that. I have two weiner dogs myself.

Now... I will never fall asleep tonight. I will be laying in bed thinking about dam limericks in my head.
