The National Poetry Contest had come down to two semifinalists.
A Yale graduate and a redneck from Wyoming. They were given a word, then allowed two minutes to study the word a come up with a poem that contained the word.
The word they were given was "Timbuktu".
First to recite his poem was the Yale graduate. He stepped up to the microphone and said
Slowly across the desert sand
Trekked a lonely caravan
Men on camels, two by two
The crowd went crazy! No way could the redneck top that, they thought.
The redneck calmly made his way to the microphone and recited
Me and Tim a huntin went
Met three whores in a pop up tent
They was three, and we was two
So I bucked one, and Timbuktu.
The redneck won hands down
