The Poetry Contest

  1. The National Poetry Contest had come down to two, a Yale graduate and a
    redneck from Texas. They were given a word, then allowed two minutes to
    study the word and come up with a poem that contained the word. The word
    they were given was "Timbuktu."

    First to recite his poem was the Yale graduate. He stepped to the
    microphone and said:

    Slowly across the desert sand
    Trekked a lonely caravan;
    Men on camels, two by two
    Destination Timbuktu.

    The crowd went crazy! No way could the redneck top that, they
    thought The redneck calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:

    Me and Tim a huntin' went.
    Met three whores in a pop up tent.
    They was three, and we was two,
    So I bucked one, and Timbuktu.

    The redneck won hands down!
