A Call to Compete (Hey, the Prizes are Neat!)

Hiya, gum chums!

Just in case you missed this tantalizing tidbit in the Glee Gum May-June ’09 Newsletter… 

(P.S. Why do you keep missing tantalizing tidbits, you ol’ tomfool?  Sign up for the newsletter already!)

Glee Gum is hosting an elegant, eloquent POETRY CONTEST!

Yes, that’s right! Oh, the sheer delight!

You may have noticed that I kind of like to rhyme.  Perhaps you even enjoyed my recent compositions, entitled “A Salute to Spearmint” and “A Ballad for Bubblegum.” No? Oh. 

Well, here’s YOUR chance to show off your way with words, your silver-penned stanzas and your brilliant balladry!

Just send us a poem, in any form – whether haiku, sonnet, or limerick it be. But be sure to include the word “glee” – and at least one rhyme for it, like “yippee”!

The top three Glee-ful poets will each win a brand new, fully loaded Glee Gum Dispenser. Talk about poetry in motion!

Here’s the fine print:

To enter the Glee Poetry Contest, send your poem in the body of an email along with your name and zip code to gleeguy@gleegum.com by June 30, 2009. To be eligible for consideration, poems must include the word “glee” and at least one rhyme for it. Poems must not contain profanity. There is no limit to the number of poems you can send, and they can be on any subject. We plan to post as many submissions as possible to GleeGum.com, so keep your eyes peeled for ’em!

Thanks to the Green Mom Review for helping to spread the word!

And while I’m on the subject of contests…

In closing, apropos of nothing, I leave you with a picture sent to us this week by a wee Glee-ful fan. Or rather, a wee Glee-ful fan’s parents!


She may be too little to chew the gum, but she certainly enjoys the box!
