Piggy bank Award: A short and sweet limerick tweet

Tess Vigeland: And finally to this week’s Marketplace Money Piggy Award. Our little blue plastic friend is heading to Chapel Hill, N.C. and listener Lynn Roundtree. He’s a historian and the long-time owner of a bookstore there. He’s also a tweeter. And he managed to send us a limerick in a single tweet. To wit:

While DC debates the debt ceiling

Endlessly wheeling & dealing

The $ will drop

& markets will top.

I’m left with a sinking feeling.

Well done in 140 characters. Your tweet earns you a pig. See, birds and pigs can get along!
