Winning Limerick
I know a fine Zo named Ootog
Who's sence of direction is odd
He yells lets go east
and vanquish some beasts
but went west to slaughter the lil frog

Winning Story
Let me tell you a little story
about a dwarf named Connie Crete
from every bar both near and far
they’d reserved this lass a seat
Lager from tap or jugs of whiskey from the shelf
she could open her throttle and throw back a bottle
as quick as the devil himself!
Connie Crete!
Now word got around that Connie Crete was no pretender
they’d quake in fear and lock up the beer
when Connie went on a bender!
If she came a knockin’ at your pub
you’d be sellin’ the place by dawn!
She’d be drinkin’ at seven, by 10 to 11...
well, all the booze would be GONE!
Connie Crete!
It was five in the evening, on a warm Puddleby night
Connie barged into the healer’s bar, the doorman gave no fight
She had money in her pocket, sylvan whiskey in her eye
Git up off yer asses an' set up th' glasses!
I’m drinkin’ this place dry!
Now all the serious boozers, they were soon broken-hearted
when Connie finished off six
and she was only gettin’ started
Guzzlin’ down the pints
and inhaling the bottles like air!
Hebark had warned that the malt might have turned
But Connie just didn't care!
Connie Crete!
So Connie drank the whole damn bottle
had another pint or two
when it made no impression she started a session
with a barrel of honey ale brew
She was finishing her keg
when her face turned green
Good Gaia! Connie fell down after ONLY fifteen!
A crowd of folks had gathered
even watching from out the door
As nine large Ghoraks
lifted Connie off the floor
A healer looked her over
That’s gotta be a first!
Cause it’s not what yer thinkin’, it wasn’t the drinkin’...
This dwarf died o’ thirst!
