    Introduction
    We've done haikus previously for a WSC competition but this time, we're going straight to silly-town and having you throw us together some WildStar-themed limericks!

    Timeframe and Entering
    To enter, all you will need to do is email your limerick to competition@wildstar-central.com before midnight EST on 27th January 2014 - the entries will be collated and sent to Carbine Studios for judging and the selection of the winners.

    Yes, you heard us - winners. Carbine will pick 13 of the finest limericks (be it fine craftmanship or wittiest wordplay) for one of their beautiful beta keys.

    Your entry email must include...

    - Your entry in a plain text format
    - Your WSC forum username
    - Your real name and postal address (for legal purposes)

    Please note that your entry will also be agreement to our competition terms and conditions (listed below).

    Prizes
    The winners of this little competition will get one thing, and one thing only - a coveted WildStar Closed Beta Key direct from the presses at Carbine Studios. Any complaints? :)

    What's a Limerick?
    As pulled directly from your friendly Wikipedia, A limerick is a short, humorous, often ribald or nonsense poem, especially one in five-line anapestic meter with a strict rhyme scheme (AABBA), which is sometimes obscene with humorous intent. The form can be found in England as of the early years of the 18th century. Additionally, there must be an identifiable WildStar theme to your entry!

    Example Entry
    Confused yet? Have an example, courtesy of moi (please don't shoot me for how dire it is - you can do better!)

    There once was an Esper from Cassus
    Who was popular with all of the lasses
    One day in a fight, he went and cast Geist
    Now the girls prefer all other classes!

    You get the idea? Hopefully that will enable you to think of something far, far better than I can. Good luck!

    There once was a livestream for Wildstar,
    with a contest for which I can't get very far;
    TwitchTV's chatbox was broke, and my odds were a joke,
    so now I'm stuck chasing Blood Elves in Terrokar.

    already mailed in, original content do not steal

    There was a spellslinger Exile,
    Who had personal habits most vile!
    He'd spit and he'd stank,
    (Even tried to tank!)
    So we haven't grouped up in a while!

    (Just to, you know, get people's creative juices going.) :)

    Cruising through the nexus
    On my ship full of asbestos
    "Zap" go the Rowsdower
    When I shoot them, full power
    But I'll never get back my testicular plexus.

    There was a Medic, his race a Mordesh
    Brooding is he, a drink or two to feel smashed
    Was pining away,
    for a week and a day,
    For a Granok lady, his hopes dashed!

    who thought life was just too borin'
    she packed up her things, not knowing what to bring
    to nexus for her to start 'splorin'

    Did you hear of the unusual mechari?

    and drove his bunny home in a Ferrari

    Soooo....

    Given that limericks have a reputation for being a bit dirty, will slightly crude limericks still be considered?
