Lewinsky / Kaczyhnski Limerick

The Washington Post runs a weekly contest in its Style section called the "Style Invitational". The requirements one week were to use the two words Lewinsky (the Intern) and Kaczynski (the Unabomber) in the same limerick.

Third place:

There once was a girl named Lewinsky
Who played on a flute like Stravinsky
'Twas "Hail to the Chief"
On this flute made of beef
That stole the front page from Kaczynski

Second place:

Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsky
"We don't want to leave clues like Kaczynski
Since you made such a mess
Use the hem of your dress
And please wipe that stuff off your chinsky

And the winner is:

Lewinsky and Clinton have shown
What Kaczynski must surely have known
That an intern is better
Than a bomb in a letter
When deciding how best to be blown
