The results...

There were over 600 on-line entries and 10 finalists.... After reading our limericks to the crowd, the judges voted and...

I won FIRST place!!!

I won two nights at Atlantic Beach and two tickets to the NC Aquarium... It definitely was a fun St. Patrick's day!
St. Patrick's Day

This morning, I got the following email from last year's winner, Mike Davis. He's so funny, I had to share this with everyone. =)


Congrats on winning the Limerick Contest. As a previous runner-up and winner of the contest I can tell you that this will be one of the most rewarding years of your life. Just remember to conduct yourself with grace and dignity at all your public appearances. Remember you're a role model now. Kids who lay there at night and dream of being a limerick contest winner are now dreaming of being you. Also, you'll be asked to come up with spontaneous limericks. Don't get sucked into this, stick with the tried and true limerick that got you there.

Pace yourself, and don't succumb to the pressure like I did. I got so wrapped up in being the "Limerick Champion" I forgot who Mike Davis is. It's just a title. At the end of the day, put the crown back in the closet. My problem is that the crown REALLY looked good on me. I wanted to wear it all the time.....and the sash.

Anyway, the pressure got so great that I couldn't even submit an entry this year. Every attempt I made to write a limerick turned out to be a Hiaku. (M'Coul's rhyme contest. Nothing funny comes to mind. Guinness pints for all). It was really weird. Please don't let this happen to you.

Again, congrats.....keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.

Mike Davis
