kasellBONUS RUCKUS: In honor of CARL KASELL’s Retirement, The “Finish this Limmerick” Guess Challenge! We listen to our open mic poetry friends and fans…. sometimes! Our man Danny recently inspired us by sharing a limmerick in tribute to NPR Radio Personality Cark Kassell’s retirement. He played host, official judge and scorekeeper of the weekly news quiz show Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! and was quite the fan of limmericks! THE GAME: NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS will write and deliver both bawdy and not as bawdy limmericks with the last word missing. Your job?  Buzz in and guess the last rhyme! That simple. Be first to guess three correct and win a prize!
