readers are funny. But we had no idea that you're this funny!Our call for limericks about Sarah Palin
, all beginning with the line "There once was a mayor from Wasilla," drew twelve solid entries. And many of them wowed us with their creativity. We honestly didn't realize how many words can be made to rhyme with Wasilla: gorilla, chincilla, even scintilla -- pretty impressive, really. We even got a limerick from RFT
However, it's only your kid's T-ball league that gives you a trophy just for playing the game. Here are the RFT, we believe in winners and losers -- and we needed to a pick a winner, if only to get these rid of these damned Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin tickets.

We've long known that
