In last week’s Friday Free-for-All, we challenged our readers to pen a funny travel limerick. We got several responses — including a naughty few we couldn’t publish — and all made us smile and laugh. But two tickled our funny bone the most, and a hot debate over which should be our winner quickly spread through the IndependentTraveler.com office.
After the dust had settled, a winner did emerge … drumroll please.
The winner of IndependentTraveler.com’s Travel Limerick Contest is Bob Schantz, who has won an IndependentTraveler.com travel mug. His winning entry is:
The baby behind me is crying
These seats make me feel like I’m dying
My butt is so sore
I can’t take anymore
Next time I am driving not flying.
The runner-up is Kenneth A. O’Shaughnessy, who has won our eternal gratitude for making us laugh. His entry was:
Once a guy who had never gone
Any farther away than his lawn
Won a trip from online
He liked travelling fine
So he only returned home to spawn.
