It's beyond that time, isn't it? I kinda think so.
The Premise: Take an existing nursery rhyme, and make it Sleuthy.
* Each person can put in as many entries as they like, but each person can only do one entry per nursery rhyme - no doing "Little Boy Blue" twice.
* PLEASE use the title of the original nursery rhyme, even if it is not mentioned in your new "Sleuthery Rhyme". Hehe...I coined a phrase!
* And, remember: spell check is your friend!
Mistress Mary, Quite Contrary (a.k.a. Mary, Mary, etc.)
Mistress Mary, quite contrary,
Why did you kill your bro?
Not for his money, as you think -
He missed two birthdays in a row!
First Prize - 100,000 Sleuth dollars if you are subbed, OR
1 month sub and 50,000 Sleuth dollars if you are not subbed
Second Prize - 50,000 Sleuth dollars if you are subbed, OR
1 month sub and 25,000 Sleuth dollars if you are not subbed
Third Prize - 25,000 Sleuth dollars if you are subbed, OR
1 month sub and 10,000 Sleuth dollars if you are not subbed
The Time Period: Contest starts... well, now. That's right, as soon as you read this post, you can start figuring out ways to give your toddlers nightmares. :-D Entries must be posted by 11:59PM SERVER TIME, May 31, 2008. Any entries posted after the deadline will be enjoyed by all, but not considered part of the contest. Winners will be posted after the judges have a chance to judge, and when I have a chance to post.
For anyone who needs to refresh their nursery rhyme memories, try this site:
I disagree Sophie... I'm sure I'm more surprised than you! ;)
Thanks guys! I had great fun writing my entry. Thanks to Anikka for another great contest, and Ctown for the groovy idea, and to the 3 judges.
And yes, it's great to see new faces entering... can you believe that only a short while ago I was one of those "new faces"??? Now I feel old...
Ok, since someone pointed it out, let me clarify my earlier post...
I'm more surprised than Sophie that I came second.
Wait, that doesn't sound right.
I'm as surprised as Sophie that she came first... :P
Nope, that's not it either.
Um, I got it!
And congrats to Lil and GraceAnn. I enjoyed reading everyone's entries.
