March Madness Poetry 2013: THE FINALS Words Unveiled

The March Madness Poetry 2013 tournament has come down to this final matchup:


This is not an April Fool’s joke. These are the real words:

hullabaloo vs. bumbershoot

An uproar versus an umbrella … should be fun!

The authletes have until 8:30am Central Wednesday morning to submit their sixth and final poem of the tournament. Then the voting will begin, and Thursday evening at 8:30pm Central, we will know who will get to display The Thinkier trophy on their mantle for the rest of 2013 …


Cheryl and Dave, we wish you luck! Focus on writing great poems, and you’ll both end up winners …

    Renee took my first choice, but bumbershoot will be just as fun. Have fun, poets – can’t wait to read!

    Personally, I just like saying, “Hullabaloo and bumbershoot!” over and over again. Best of luck to both of you!

    They do have that roll off the tongue poetic feel, especially compared to verjuice, I would think, right Matt?……but we are going to remember verjuice, I bet. Stay tuned.
