Mid-week humor

The Washington Post runs a weekly contest in its style section called the "Style Invitational." The requirements this particular week were to use the two words 'Lewinsky' (the world's most famous intern) and 'Kaczynski' (the Unabomber) in the same limerick. Ahhh, the creativity...

3rd 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.

2nd 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.
