I posted a challenge here which Dear Mr. Hendrik won hands down. And not just because he was the only person who responded (although that didn’t hurt his odds).
Here’s the challenge:
“My challenge to you, dear reader(s) – come up with an innuendo phrase that involves socioeconomic. The winner of the challenge will get a very crappy poem written to/about/for them. The poem will probably not make sense, but it will rhyme.”
So without further ado!,
An Ode to the Non-Review
Don’t fall for the trick
Of Mr. T.S. Hendrik
And foolishly misconstrue
If I want my dose snark
With a side of review
Or a cat with a caustic remark
I turn to the “Non”-Review
There’s nothing non about his reviews
He’s looking up movies you haven’t seen while you snooze
But what IS The Non-Review?
(If you don’t already) It’s time you knew:
It’s the land of the 7 Word Weekend Skewer
The land of Pete, the large-toothed ne’er doer
The land of the numerically-oriented (Just the facts, ma’am) reviewer
And, lest we should forget, Wilfred Brimley’s never been bluer …
So congratulations to T.S.
Who keeps his fans coming back saying “yes”
Here’s to more Non-Reviews
I felt the need for gibberish to end, because I promised that it would rhyme, not that it would make sense.
Want a crappy poem written about you or your blog, or your imaginary cat? Let me know … I may get around to it, if you’re cool enough.

Haha, thanks, that was fantastic. I especially liked the last line where you had to make up a word. I may have won by default, but that doesn’t lessen the sweetness of the victory.
