The winning limericks have been decided. and I will post them.

A word about the judging of them.

I had several people over my house (15) on Friday,
who became my panel of unbiased judges.
I printed out all the limericks with no names attached to them.
They knew I had written one but didn't know which one.
The voting took place- it inspired some good conversation too.
The results are as follows:

1st place
by a landslide vote goes to

In autumn the leaves are falling
To many folks that must be galling
But lets not be sad
Its just the leaves that are dead
And they make for some wonderful strolling

2nd place

<hr style="color:#D1D1E1" size="1">There once was a farmer who said
I like eating apples that are red
They are crisp and delicious
And really quite nutritious
He affirmed with a nod of his head.

3rd place

In the stadium I was a cheerin'
the other team we were a smearin'
then in came the rain
and washed out the game
poor football fans we were a tearin'

Congratulations to the winners

Thanks to all who submitted Limericks.
I will post another Limerick contest for the month of October
