Usually I'm not a joke poster, but it is March after all (beware the Ides of Mrach!) and these limericks were quite clever I thought.

The Washington Post runs a weekly contest in its Style section called the "Style Invitational."
The requirements last week were to use the two words "Lewinsky" (The Intern) and "Kaczynski" (the Unabomber) in the same limerick. The following winning entries were printed. In The Paper.

Third place:

There once was a girl named Lewinsky,
Who played on a flute like Stravinsky.
'Twas "Hail to the Chief"
On this flute made of beef
That stole the front page from Kaczynski.

Second place:

Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsky,
"We don't want to leave clues like Kaczynski.
Since you made such a mess,
Use the hem of your dress;
And please wipe that stuff off your chinsky."

And the winning entry:

Lewinsky and Clinton have shown
What Kaczynski must surely have known:
That an intern is better
Than a bomb in a letter
When deciding how best to be blown
