and the winner is...

There was this National Poetry Contest, and all the colleges and the universities sent a representative to enter the competition.

The final round came and it was down to two particular individuals.

The first dude was a well bred, high class snob from Harvard and his contestant was some redneck from a rundown college whose name was not even significant enough to be mentioned here.

The rule of the contest was for each finalist to compose a four line poem within one minute and the poem has to contain the word 'Timbuktu.

The high class snob went first. With confidence oozing out from him, he read:

Slowly across the desert sand
Trekked the dusty caravan
Men on camels, two by two
Destination, Timbuktu.

The crowd cheered like you wouldnt believe. Everybody thought that the snob will win hands down. I mean, come on, there's no way the redneck will be able to beat that.

The redneck then stood up, cleared his throat and recited his poem:

Tim and me, a-huntin' went
Saw three whores in a pop-up tent
They was three, we was two
So i bucked one, and Tim bucked two!

Needless to say, the redneck won the competition. ;)
