If you haven’t yet heard about Max Sparber’s limerick contest, listen up.

Max Sparber wasn’t able to persuade Mayor Rybak to declare August 8th Limerick Day in Minneapolis (although we were told that still might happen),” writes marrina on LOL/OMG!, “but he decided to have a Twin Cities Limerick contest anyway.”

Work on your limericks this weekend, or next, as many as you want. You have until July 28th to send them to submissions@tclimericks.com ‚Äî after which they will be judged by… tada… Bill Corbett, James Lileks, Jason DeRusha and Max Sparber. Winners will be announced at the Twin Cities Limerick Contest event at Kieran’s at 7pm on August 8.

I’m in!
