It’s been a little while since we’ve done a contest… A lot of you bailed on me for the roommate contest (thanks to the few who submitted stories!), but Richard stepped in and ran an atheist limerick contest that is just begging for a winner.
So… here are the Top 5 limericks (with submitters)!
After the twin towers fell
My anger started to swell
Theist’s invisible friends
Yield such horrible trends
To my atheist meekness, farewell
The theists say they have the truth,
and all was created in a poof,
but I say I’m right,
I’ll put up a fight,
Spaghetti’s a much better spoof.
There once was a fellow named Hitch,
He advanced an irregular pitch:
“That Mother Theresa?
I’ll give her a piece o’
My mind, that old, fraudulent bitch.”
Why reject our dear Lord’s great command
When the reasons for faith are so grand?
There’s the Bible so sweet
The flagellum so neat
And bananas fit right in your hand!
A pain in the ass named D’Souza
Thinks God Is Not Great is a louza.
But by hitchin’ his game
To Chris Hitchens’s name,
He’s managed to stay in the nouza..
Congratulations to the winners! The top three will be receiving specially-made Friendly Atheist wristbands (in the color of their choice), sent to me by blog reader Shauna and her sister Danni!
If you’d like to win your own wristband, here is the new contest.
Pope Benedict XVI recently wrote an encyclical where he blamed atheism for bringing about the ”greatest forms of cruelty and violations of justice.”
I know what you’re thinking.
The Pope against atheism?
Which leads us to the question:
What other shocking statements will the Pope make in his next encyclical?
Funny and creative answers will have a shot at winning.
