Ken over at Andina has generously sponsored this contest with a $25.00 gift certificate. Thank you Andina! Their bar is one of my favorite hangouts for tapas and pisco drinks.*
You’ve all heard limericks at one time or another; I’m sure we all learned the dirty ones when we were ten (did they all involve France?). Now it is time to put those memories to work.
Announcing Portland Food and Drink’s first food Limerick Contest.
A limerick has to fit a certain rhythmic meter. For example:
A: What is a limerick, Mother?
A: It’s a form of verse, said brother
B: In which lines one and two
B: Rhyme with five when it’s through
A: And three and four always rhyme with each other
Here’s one I liked about food… and er, college:
brownie by Chris Doyle
They’re chocolaty, nutty, and square,
And in college were fun to prepare.
Marijuana was mixed
In the brownies we fixed.
When we ate them, we floated on air.
The rules: They must be original. They must be related to food. They must be reasonably clean and in good taste. A panel of judges picked by me will narrow down the winning list, the first prize will be picked by a vote of readers. Knock yourselves out!
We’ll leave the contest open for two weeks. Submit as many as you want in the comments. Winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to Andina.
