You could win $100 for a limerick! Apparently the Saturday Evening Post has these little contests every couple of months, using visuals that you'd easily recognize as typical SEP artwork - so Americana. The Saturday Evening Post will award $100 to the author of the winning limerick for this picture.
Limericks must contain five lines. Enter as many times as you wish. The Nov/Dec 2010 Limerick Laughs winner will be announced in the Mar/Apr 2011 issue. Entries must be postmarked by December 6, 2010.
Send entries on a postcard to:

NOTE: While these pics predate me, they feel so cozy, so real, so reminiscent of something I wish I'd experienced. No entry fee here, and you only have until Monday - barely a week, but it's a limerick. Go for it. Test your rhythm and rhyming skills.
DOUBLE NOTE: Working, working, working, catching up from holidays. Putting the final decisions together on the 9th Annual FundsforWriters Essay Contest. OMG, we had some grand reading this time. All the judges commented on the marvelous writing and concepts applied to the theme: When Writing Made a Difference.
