Oh Yes, It’s a Limerick Contest

The merry folk at Boingo Wireless
Hereby declare a limerick contest.
If you think you’re clever
And you win something never
Give us a shot that’s your best

The prize: a Targus universal power supply ($149.99 value) for charging your laptop and smartphone at home, in the car, or on an airplane. It’s yours if you’re among the top three limerick poets.

The contest dates: March 15th, 16th, and 17th. Three winners will be announced at the end of the day on the 17th, St. Patrick’s Day!

Here are the contest rules:

  1. Limerick must be of your own original work.
  2. Keep in mind that a limerick must fit a certain meter and rhyme, i.e., AABBA. For a detailed definition of limerick, please visit dictionary.com.
  3. Multiple entries encouraged!
  4. Maximum of one win per contestant.
  5. Must be a fan of both Boingo and Targus on Facebook in order to win.

The Boingo Limerick Contest is subject to Boingo’s Terms and Conditions.

    Here goes!

    So soon is Saint Patty’s Day
    Corned Beef and Cabbage I say
    Boiled meat tastes like yuck
    But wish for some luck
    Irish green beer all the way!

  4. chris s says:

    There once was a company named Targus
    That made cool gadgets with no fuss
    They had a contest
    Lookinng for the best
    Here’s one to throw under the bus!

    Power, power we like power
    Even better than a flower
    Great giveaway
    But stay away
    We’re weak and reek and need a shower

  6. chris s says:

    St. Patty’s day is near
    Lets have another beer
    We have power
    & hot shower
    Targus has all the gear!

    There once was a traveler named Jane.
    Who flew coast to coast in a plane.
    With Boingo she knew,
    Her email she’d do.
    And keep her from going insane.

  10. Baochi says:


    LOL. Thanks for making me laugh first thing on a Tuesday morning. Nice!


  11. Derek Jones says:

    There was a young man from Nantucket
    who traveled the roads in a bucket
    Each place that he’d stop
    His laptop he would pop
    ‘Cause Boingo coverage did not suckth

  12. Derek Jones says:

    The first, second, and fifth lines rhyme , and have the same number of syllables (usually 8 or 9). The third and fourth lines rhyme and have the same number of syllables (usually 6).

    Wikipedia has a good example limerick. :
    The limerick packs laughs anatomical
    In space that is quite economical,

    But the good ones I’ve seen
    So seldom are clean,

    And the clean ones so seldom are comical.

    And to read on the history of Limericks and Nantucket – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There_once_was_a_man_from_Nantucket

  14. Derek Jones says:

    Pen a Limerick ’tis the name of this game
    Three entrants to win prizes and fame
    but the list is too short
    I am afraid to report
    All the entries are from the same

    The anticipation!
    The envelope please……..

  18. Brian says:

    A new UPS would be nice!
    My old one’s too cheap to suffice.
    (No dry cells inside,
    it’s just wires applied
    to a dyno-wheel spun up by mice.)

    Once I had multiple Wi-Fi accounts,
    Too many bills and dollar amounts,
    But then I found Boingo,
    Now my heart is aglow.
    And I’ve saved more money than I can count!
