Limerick of Death competition winner

Our Limerick of Death competition was a huge success, attracting hundreds of entrants. The winner of an awesome Machine of Death hardback set is #259 by Petertrepan:

The pilot spat out a profanity
As he said "This machine speaks insanity."
So he launched anyway
And suffice it to say
"This is terrible! Oh, the humanity!"

Runners-up are #295 by nr and #66 by RadioFreeUSA, who each get a random thing from the vault. Winners, get in touch!


  1. Congrats to the winner.

    I wanted to post mine, but the NSA got a hold of it:

    There once was a girl from [REDACTED]
    Whose body was was very [REDACTED]
    She said, “I’d [REDACTED]
    But would never [REDACTED]

  2. Too late, I hear of this contest!
    I wish I had joined in this quest.
    Well done to the winner,
    He ain’t no beginner…
    I still think that mine are the best ;)

    He ended up buzzing with flies,
    Unable to avert his demise.
    Your ultimate fate,
    there is no escape,
    The Death Machine, it never lies.


    “Living, it really is grim,
    Like sinking, unable to swim.
    I know how I’ll die,
    I just want to cry…”
    He thought as the train hit him.

  3. Rats! When did the contest get announced? Well, this would have been my entry:

    A crusty old salt named VanBuren
    Got drunk by fermenting his urine.
    He was lynched by the crew
    For this odious brew,
    Whose bouquet was past all endurin’.
