Limber Limericks Contest
Leg it (Irish slang for “run quickly”) to your laptop and compose a running/walking related limerick.
Then just for submitting it to us, you’ll be in the running for one of 20 pairs of Feetures Elite Light Cushion No-Show Socks we’ll be giving away. ((These are left-right specific socks with good medium cushion and our most popular sock in the store!)
Be sure to email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) your limerick by St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th)!
Need a quick little reminder on what makes a limerick?
A limerick is a short, comical, and almost musical poem that often borders on the nonsensical or for the sake of this contest, the only slightly naughty.
A true limerick has five lines; the first, second, and fifth rhyme with each other, and the third and fourth rhyme with each other.
Here’s are a couple examples:
There was a guy from the east,
Who started running so that he could feast.
His runs would take in a pub,
That also did grub,
That enabled him to eat like a beast.
It was time for a run,
My tummy wasn’t game for the fun,
So I tried to eat some goop,
But it ended up making me poop,
At least I was out in the sun.
