Malenkai's limerick:

There's a dude whose proposals are cheese
Who plagues us with snowgod's disease
Sponging our bandwidth
'Till there's nary a byte left
Were it on paper we'd have no more trees
snowgod's limerick:
There once was a man most exhalted
who's logic could rarely be faulted
but his skill as a bard
left his dignity marred.
To save face, he should just have defaulted.
On Jan 4, 1997, the results were posted. There were 4 votes each, so by the Limerick rules, the winner is the one whose limerick was posted first (Malenkai).

Contest chosen: Limericks

The duel was meant to determine the title of the biggest bandwidth waster.

Red Barn's Limerick

Snowgod has wasted our time,
But his wasting is not worth a dime.
For I've caused quite a fury,
Of eyes being blurry,
And say that the record is mine.
snowgod's Limerick:
A player who's name was quite fine
tried changing his name to a crime
before he started complaining
that the rules keep changing.
I think he was losing his mind.
On Jan 25 the results were posted. Initially it appeared snowgod won 8 to 7, but upon the discovery of an illegal vote by the Evil Ballot Stuffer, it was found to be a tie, 7 to 7, so Red Barn won due to having posted his Limerick first.

breadbox's Limerick:

R. Sevin, that toothy shoehorn,
Cried: "Flat! I believe! I'm newborn!
And that bandwidth hobgoblin,
I'LL sandwich his problem ...
In fire!!" The rest is true corn.
Robert Sevin's Limerick:
There once was a man from Nantucket,
Whose harf more than filled his bucket,
He gave harf away,
'til many did say,
"Please, sir, harf on your way!"

T'was a treasure hunter so lame
Despite his undeserved fame
Desperate for clues
Goads me into these duels
When he should be watching Parades

Malenkai buried lots of stuff
With no maps and clues that were tough.
The numbers he's teasin'
Have no rhyme or reason

two-star's Limerick

Their votes some endeavored to place
Through Common Gateway Interface.
Their names I've discovered;
Soon I'll have recovered
A prize for a poem of grace.

two-star's second Limerick (!)

I, posting a duel verse that claims
a prize for a listing of names,
mis-sent it and so am
revising my poem
and sending it to acka-games.

Mohammed's Limerick (posted late)

Mohammed, e got two-star's goat
Outstripping the limericks e wrote.
'-star chose to pursue
Not one verse, but two,
Thus splitting his share of the vote.
/dev/joe's acceptance post came at Jun 3 01:58 EDT; Mohammed's limerick was posted at Jun 6, 04:57 EDT. Thus two-star wins by default.
