Sue Moravec saves the day…

December 3rd, 2005

Following a day of coal power plant announcements, the gentle snow, dog perched over the back of the couch surveying her domain, and the smell of just arrived Costa Rican coffee and the burlap bag it came in provide a balancing quiet. The perfect touch is provided this morning by Sue Moravec, who I went to high school with a few centuries ago in a different life… hot off her keyboard providing the perfect SOL experience (that’s SNORTING). Says Sue:




The Washington Post runs a weekly contest in its Style Section called the “Style Invitational.” The requirements this week were to use the two words Lewinsky (the Intern) and Kaczynski (the Unabomber) in the same limerick. Remember, the following winning entries were printed in the newspaper.

3rd Place:

There once was a girl named Lewinsky, who played on a flute like Stravinsky
‘Twas “Hail to the Chief”
On this flute made of beef
That stole the front page from Kaczynski.

2nd Place:

Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsky,
“We don’t want to leave clues like Kaczynski,
Since you made such a mess,
Use the hem of your dress
And please wipe that stuff off your chinsky.”

1st Place – the winning entry:

Lewinsky and Clinton have shown
What Kaczynski must surely have known
That an intern is better
Than a bomb in a letter
When deciding how best to be blown.

I tried to find the original, but couldn’t, the Post’s site is down, hmmmmmm, according to google there’s just a lot of blogs, but I did find this bizarre link between Lewinsky and Kaczynski in the Washington Post, that the feds had actually subpoenaed bookstores!

Now why would they do that? Looking for “Blue Dress for Success” books? Perhaps “Trapped in the Mirror” to learn a thing or two about cerebral and somatic narcissism? Hey, it’s a “free country!”
