Remember our competition to write a limerick and win double passes to see Iron Sky? We’ve picked the winners, and they’re a tribute to the resilience of the limerick as a relevant poetical form. Or just a lot of jokes about space Nazis. Check them out below.
There were lots of entries, but in the end only 10 people could win. Here are our favourites. And yes, one references Futurama. This is Giz. That’ll work.
A film about moon-dwelling Nazis
Can’t claim to be deep, or too artsy
But the premise is sweet
And the action looks neat
So it holds a fond place in my heart… sy
Glad I’m not Jewish or Black
Cause it looks like the Nazis are back
They had been defeated
So they quickly retreated
To work on their plan of attack
A saucy nymphette name of Palin
At leading her country was failin’
’til with her legs open wide
She took Nazis in stride
Now her second term’s been smooth sailin’
We’re Nazis on the moon,
We Carry a Harpoon,
But we found no whales,
So we tell tall tales,
And sing our whaling tune
Forget the ten free passes
Moon Nazis wearing space glasses
Is reason enough
For us to get tough
And pay to seat our own arses
What we need is a huge asteroid
To appear from out of the void
It could wipe out the bad guys
(Like Mortein kills house flies!)
Who dwell in the dark with… Pink Floyd.
It’s been 70 years since the war,
And the Nazis would settle the score.
To the movies, my friend!
(It’s releasing May 10.)
Now the moon will be boring, no more.
Because they all come from the moon
They think they are simply immune
To human attack
But the humans hit back
No matter how many platoons.
There once was an evil villain,
Who loved causing mayhem and killin’
Sarah Palin’s her name,
She made Nazis look sane,
But audiences – she would thrill ‘em!
We Hail from the dark of the moon,
Our leader sure was a baboon,
Were here for a fight,
to reclaim our right,
Let’s hope we do better than Zune.
Congratulations to the winners — we’ll be in touch ASAP to arrange the speedy sending of your tickets. Thanks everyone for entering.
