We want your tax limericks!

Marketplace Staff Mar 9, 2012

Calling all poets! Tax time is almost here and St. Patrick’s Day is even nearer (don’t forget to wear green). So we thought we’d combine the two and hold a limerick contest!

We’ve invited the king of the money limerick, Dr. Goose, to join us next week and help us judge this year’s submissions. So send us your limericks about taxes. You can do that by clicking here or send your submissions to our Facebook page.

If you remember, we asked for your limericks about the debt ceiling crisis last year and had a fun time reading them. We received some really great and creative submissions. You can check those out here. And check out our interview with Dr. Goose himself on those debt crisis limericks — click here.

Looking forward to what we get this year. Thanks for helping us out!

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
