In today’s post introducing the long-anticipated Battle of the Consonants, we put out a call for limericks. I mean, don’t the names Samuel Isaac Joseph Schereschewsky and Nikolaus von Zinzendorf just scream “poetry?” We were pleased to see that many heeded the call and wanted to share a few of them with you. Plus, this is a great way to honor St. Patrick whose feast day we ignored on Friday.
Of course, today is Monday, and that means it’s time for everyone’s beginning of the week ritual, Monday Madness. Tim has chosen two limericks to read aloud to you, the Lent Madness Global Viewing Public. But that’s not the only big thing in this week’s episode of Monday Madness. Scott has some big ideas to market Lent Madness during this bracket-tide season. And Tim and Scott talk about the final three battles in the Round of the 32, including a Lent Madness first!
So watch the full episode, including (a mercifully brief) Saintly Poetry Slam. Here are some selections from limericks submitted by viewers, and you can read the whole lot of them in the comments section for today’s contest.
