Spring is here, and that can only mean one think: it’s time for Baseball Ink and Chortler’s annual baseball limerick contest.
Yes, for third straight year – except for last year’s which was canceled – we are asking our loyal reader(s) to have a go combining our national pastime with light-hearted poetry of a debatable origin. Could you or someone you know be the Shakespeare of modern-day baseball-ish limerickery?

About Hellacious Acres: The Case of John GlassA man suffering from amnesia wakes up in a desolate barn from a cryogenic freezer to be informed that the planet has been devastated by a world war and reduced to little habitability by a subsequent alien invasion. He is thrown into a military mission to help reestablish a livable atmosphere for what’s left of humanity. Soon enough he encounters more than he bargained for: aliens, crazy survivors, inadequate equipment and a pretty unhealthy dose of bad luck. Jam-packed with visual inventions and plot twists, this movie offers a dark and humorous take on the post-apocalyptic genre.
Pimp My Cube Contest is a contest with a mission: to find the worst, the most pathetic, the messiest office or cubicle in the known universe.
Contest Factory, the brains behind Pimp My Cubicle, is offering $1200 in prizes for those who create videos that best explain the nightmarish surroundings in which they work and why Contest Factory should come in and ‘Pimp’ their cube.
Winning packages include a new high-end computer system, a new desk chair and decorations, and a new high-end stereo and espresso machine.
What does a workplace need in order to win? Mess, old technology, bad furniture, dirt, darkness, utter lack of organization, and various and sundry other attributes that it a horrible, dismal place in which to work.
Once a video is uploaded to the Pimp My Cubicle page and approved, contestants are encouraged to alert family, friends, co-workers (and even competitors) to vote for their entry.
Videos can be uploaded by phone and webcam.
According to the Contest Factory, the funnier and wittier the video — ie, the better its story — the better its chances of winning. Anything goes, they say.
The cubicle to determined to be the best (really worst) by the Contest Factory judges
The latest word from Contest Factory is that the chances of winning could not be better as no videos have been uploaded to this point.
