Win wine

My good friends at the Marsala Marketing Board have made me an offer I cannot refuse. They have donated a bottle of Florio’s Terre Arse (tee hee!) 2000 to give away to my readers. All you have to do is is come up with a limerick with the word ‘marsala’ in it. Something like: ‘there was a young man from Marsala/ who had a passion for Mahler.’ Entries must be clean or at least cleanish or I won’t be able to post them online in case my mother is reading. The one that makes me laugh the most wins. To enter this incredible competition you must subscribe to World of Booze and then email your entry to henrycastiglione at hotmail dot com. I’ll only post within Britain so if you enter from abroad, you’ll have to come and pick up the wine. Competition closes at the end of May or later if I don’t get enough funny limericks. The winner and any funny runners-up will have their limericks posted on the site. If none of them make me laugh, then there will be no winner.

    There once was a tame young impala
    who’s owner was a teensy bit lala.
    The friendship was hasty
    – as impala is tasty,
    and makes a wonderful tikka marsala

    Love this! -here’s mine (borrowed your first line):

    There was a composer named Mahler
    Whose greatest love was Marsala
    It warms up the throat
    So you hit the top notes
    And shatter the lamps at La Scala

    I emailed my limerick to your email address Henry, I hope that you got it…
