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 JD Niemand

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. Robert(B-ob)
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. Annita

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. Geoffrey D'Unienville
