First Annual Geek Limerick Contest

Another month another chance to dazzle fellow BBspotters with your creativity. Compose a limerick with a geeky topic and you could win one of the fabulous prizes. Please take a look at the official rules below before sending in your entry. Limericks will be judged on creativity, geekiness, and since this is a humor site the humorosity of the limerick. If you need any rhyming help check out Rhymezone.

1st Place: $25 Thinkgeek gift certificate

2nd Place: BBspot T-shirt

If you forgot what a limerick looks like and sounds like I've made up a few examples below.


Harry of Doom

There once was a gamer named Harry
Who's habits were really quite scary
All night and day in his room
Spent killing monsters in Doom
He's never even met his wife, Sherry.

Ode to Mark Hamill

To this day Star Wars fans complain
Of Mark Hamill's quick rise to fame
His starring as Luke
Was considered a fluke
Cause the rest of his movies were lame.

The Downfall of Netscape

There once was a browser we know
That ruled all the net head to toe
Then Bill noticed the 'net.
And made them top threat
And Netscape sold out for the dough.

Official rules: Please send your own previously unpublished limerick to By sending in your limerick you give us rights to publish the limerick on, but you can keep the rights to publish it in your book of geek limericks.. The limerick must be received by March 31st to be eligible to win. You can send in multiple entries, but you are only eligible to win one of the prizes. Winners will be announced in April!
