Mayoral Proclamation Declaring August 8, 2010, to be Limerick Day in Minneapolis sign now

We, the people of the Twin Cities and the broader area of Minnesota, petition Mayor R.T. Rybak of Minneapolis to declare August 8, 2010, to be Limerick Day in Minneapolis.

We petition this because the limerick, emerging from the midwest of Ireland, is one of the fine poetic traditions, and a democratic one, in that pretty much anybody can write a limerick. We offer this petition for the sake of encouraging Minneapolitans, Twin Cities residents, and Minnesotans in general to take up pen and author limericks of their very own, to express their experiences, their concerns, their thoughts, and, of course, their wicked wits.

We petition that August 8, 2010, be the date for this Mayoral Proclamation in order to coincide with the Twin Cities Limerick Contest, an opportunity for Minnesotans to write their own limericks, have them judged by a panel of local notables in the fields of poetry and wit, and celebrate the poetic form.

We thank you for your attention to the petition.
