The Celtic Kink Limerick Challenge

The following is a posting I made on Beyond Robson. I am now an official blogger.

I usually celebrate Saint Patrick's Day with a 'meh' and some token green apparel. But this year I'm thinking of taking in a night of poetry, burlesque and accordions at Ceili's Irish Pub. This Thursday, Ceili's will be hosting an event they call a Celtic Kink Limerick Challenge that will blend these art forms into a lucky clover of entertainment. Here's how it's going down:

You and your friends (or strangers for that matter) form a team and create limericks to compete against the Vancouver Limerick All-stars (local poetry slam stars RC Weslowski, Sean McGarragle, Chris Gilpin and Nora Smithhisler). Sounds simple right? Well, the challenge will be creating them while the sultry divas of Sweet Soul Burlesque shimmy and Rowan Lipkovits serenades on his accordion. Your creations will be judged by a panel of 'celebrity' judges including 24 Hours' Guts McTavish, CFUN's Jennifer Thomson, and Westender photographer Catherine Barr.

I'm not sure what the prize is but my bets are it's probably green.
