A Contest

This kerfluffle involving a scrotum
And some nutty librarians
-- note 'em:
You think speech is free?
That's a phallusy.
Bag the words that you want, they won't tote 'em.

I'm still convinced that librarians are, by and large, our friends. In order to make it possible for them to stock that Newberry Award winning book, we need to accustom people to the word "scrotum." To which end, I'm announcing a contest for most creative use of the word "scrotum" in a poem or limerick.

Go nuts in the comments. The deadline is midnight tomorrow.

Testy technicals: the testicles'
sac is the scrotum, sags
swaying gently 'twixt legs
above knees, needs gentle
cool groinal breeze
to keep sperm perky.

To protect future children from harm
where sperm doesn’t like it so warm,
male mammals have a sack
between front and back,
the scrotum holds balls like a charm

Dingly-dangly
Newbery Medalists
Love to say "scrotum"
Which some find uncouth.

I say the libraries'
Antitesticular
Stance hides a little too
Much from our youth.

Great Hercules cavorted with ease,
His codpiece flapping in the breeze.
When asked, "Why so jolly?"
He replied, "'Tis no folly!"
"Just airing my great Testicles!"

Of course, I didn't use the word scrotum in there at all, did I? Well, when I'm on a roll... :]

Scrotum
(a sonnet)

The English language moves, akin to sperm
in ways mysterious to contemplate;
Each phrase for manly parts, it has its term:
its rise and fall, its length and width and date.
But what if a once rigid word must fall
and cease to stand erect betwixt our lips?
Vernacular is brought low, that once tall
graced page and tongue -- our very language trips.
Where else do balls belong but libraries?
O bastions of collegiate night romance
Where 'tween stacks of dusty philosophies
The gentle scrotum 'scapes so oft its pants?
So mock not the kindly word, the sweet scrota
But pronounce it daily, weekly: set a quota.

Your huge soft walnut
Sweet scrotal fruit in my teeth
Wait. Not mine. The snake's.

Woo! I am so proud... so pleased....

*sheds a tear*

And to think it was all my fault. (Well, after Charlie came up with the challenge, of course. But I won't blame him at all. Nosiree.)

I suck at poems... how about I just say that I decided to save the mints the Doctor gave me for my aching belly? Yes, I escrow Tums.

In musty libraries with many factotums
(Still precious few are possessors of scrotums)
Yet some bagless cuties
In their bibliophile duties
Get testy with books and demote 'em.

Those Newberry people are fickle
They cut usage of words to a trickle
To try the word "scrotum"
Is just what is owed 'em
So let's send them all a test tickle.

This is just for the snake to say--
I have bitten
the scrotum
that was on
your dog

And which
he was probably
hoping
I wouldn't.

Forgive me
it was so delicious
so salty
and somewhat cooler than the ambient body temperature.

Sorry. The WCW thing, it goes on autopilot some mornings.
