Poetry ContestThe National Poetry Contest had come down to two semifinalists; A Yale graduate and a redneck from Texas. They were given a word, then allowed two minutes to study the word and come up with a poem that contained the word. The word they were given was "TIMBUKTU."
First to recite his poem was the Yale graduate. He stepped to the microphone and said:
Trekked a lonely caravan
Men on camels,
two by two
The crowd went crazy! No way could the redneck top that, they thought. The redneck calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:
Me and Tim a-huntin' went
Met three whores in a pop-up tent
They was three,
and we was two
So I bucked one, and
The redneck won hands down.
