I'm the author of the winning limerick. I really didn't even realize that mine was in the running. It was never intiatially read on the podcast. Imagine my suprise, to hear my name called out as the winner this week. While a 5830 isn't faster than the GTX260's in SLI, that is in my computer. It will go in my son's computer that is sill sporting a 8800gt. Since there are 4 gaming computers in my house, one for me and each of my children. It's really expensive to keep everyone in up to date. Most people can sell their old graphics card when they get a new one, to recoupe some of the cost to the purchase. Not me, I pass it down to another computer, leaving me only able to sell the lowest end card in the house, which is now Radeon 4830. BTW, I don't ever use the word cheddar to describe money. It's the only thing I could think of that rymes with sweater. Also, if there are any other people out there who live in the Muncie, IN area, I'm always looking for PC gamers to LAN with. www.munciegamers.com

#8 clearly hits the PC/Mac debate nail right on the head.

See Dirk had to put on his skinny jeans and hop in his mothers touareg to go get a new Mac, half way to the apple store he had to turn back because he had forgotten his oversized headphones. Boo hipsters and macs!

Jobs doesn't wear a turtleneck "sweater"...  that's what you wore skiing in the 80's, and I hate when people say "cheddar", so I have to go with #8, although there are some other good ones here.

and just brilliant. Far beyond the typical thinking of Mac-bashing PC fans (who are as drone-like as any Mac fanboy). Numbers 4 and 6 tie for a distant second.

Both 4 and 6 are great but #4 edges in for the win

It looks like the cool thing to do is vote for #10. So go right ahead, sit back, sip your latte, vote for #10 and hate yourself for it. Just like a Mac user.

 

#1 for me since i agree with the statements it makes

I hate how Apple iterates versions to sell new, but break old devices. itunes broke my first and last ipod.

I hate how apple users are sheep who buy every one of those iterations.

I hate how much apple products cost - even though i wouldn't buy them myself.

I hate how nice apple products look, because it people buy them and don't support better platforms that only slightly abuse the people who use thier products instead of completely abusing them.

those reasons are why my PC is better than a MAC, among others

#8 for the complete lack of limerick structure.

And whats with all these people voting for #10? OS X=OS #10...I think we have a bunch of closet Mac users in the house.

kris79

#4. Too true... bought apples for years until I wised up and started building PCs myself...

#1 FTW

patrickmaher

My vote is for #10.

Most of the rest are just focusing on bashing Macs and not really going with the PC vs. Mac theme.

#10, all the way!!!

AntiMac

number 5, we all know how true it is!

#5, who doesn't expect Jobs to have police to avoid bad press? The greatness of PCs speaks for itself.

10

CaverTroy

Number 10 is my pick.

#9 is by far the best and if you've see this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYecfV3ubP8 you will think so too

#9FTW, it took a little bit of nerd power and backstory to truelly understand its brilliance.

#8 was the funniest on the podcast.  Bravo for thinking outside the limerick box.  Made me laugh out loud at work, since I had a friend buy a new mac because the dvd drive went out on his and it was just easier that way.

Anyone that can include my favorite Maximum PC personality in a Limerick gets MY vote.

It's also relevant & true.

Archaos

#5. its gold.

avatar

dentaku

#8 is "funny 'cause it's true"./

avatar

Lummoxx

...with a bullet.  That one is masterful.

avatar

Rinimand

I would for mine but I don't see it. It was so good, I guess it never made it to your inbox.

Barring that, I guess #8. Even though it breaks a rule, it's the best of what you got.

avatar

dmfisher2007

I like number 5.

avatar

Arclite

5 is very funny, and 10 gets to the essence of Max PC, but 6 has my heart for why PCs are great: open source software.

 

Looks like 10 has it in the bag tho.

avatar

Zaxix

#5 made me laugh

special mention to # 10, so true

 

Most use the machines dubbed wintel

To do their computing tasks well

But every single day

If Steve Job’s had his way

The PC could just rot in hell

avatar

Ravenlord

number 8 for me... but all are great!

avatar

bautrey

#5 is the only one that made me lol

avatar

I give my vote for number 10!!! Three times!

avatar

squarebab

Having agonized over many component choices and having beamed with pride upon the completion of many builds over the years, I choose number ten as the best limerick.

avatar

scooter_seh

8 is the best

#5 gets my vote

My PC has always been compatible,

For all my programs and games.

To switch now would be unimaginable.

I really don’t care what the claims,

Apple is still the forbidden fruit for thoughts with halve the brains.

avatar

Arclite

Your poem they did not pick,

Because it's not a limerick.

You must conform,

To limerick norm.

Do research before Submit you click!

10 for sure, although I've always hated the term "cheddar".

avatar

Zombie Woof

I'm going with the one they liked on the podcast,  #8.  Like Gordon said, "It's funny AND true!"

Number 10 for sure
