Lewinsky and Kaczynski 


The Washington Post runs a weekly contest in its Style section called the 'Style Invitational'. 


The requirements this week were to use the two words 'Lewinsky' (the Intern) and 'Kaczynski' (the Unabomber) in the same limerick. 


Now, remember, the following winning entries were actually printed  verbatim in the newspaper, no bleeps or xxxs :  



Third place: 


There once was a girl named Lewinsky 

Who played on a flute like Stravinsky 

' Twas ' Hail to the Chief

On this flute made of beef 

That stole the front page from Kaczynski. 


Second place: 


Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsky, 

We don't want to leave clues like Kaczynski, 

Since you made such a mess, 

Use the hem of your dress 

And please wipe that stuff off your chinsky . 


And the winning entry: 


Lewinsky and Clinton have shown 

What Kaczynski must surely have known, 

That an intern is better 

Than a bomb in a letter, 

When deciding how best to be blown.
