Bude Limerick Competition

WIN £200 cash, accommodation for two at the Falcon Hotel, breakfast and a Champagne dinner worth £500!

With so many enticing rhymes to its name, Bude has been described as “the limerick capital of the world”. You are invited to compose a limerick that includes the name Bude (suitable for a family audience). Here is an example of what can be done with it…

There was a young lady from Bude,
who frequently swam in the nude.
“It’ll bring in the tourists, so let’s not be purists,”
said the Mayor – his binoculars glued!

The limerick is considered by many as cheap, tasteless & disposable. But it has attracted not only humourists such as Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll & Ogden Nash but great literary figures, among them Shakespeare, Kipling & Auden.
