Greenspan's Body Count Goes to Ireland -- Greenspan Limerick Contest

Murphy's Law, 2012 edition: If Alan Greenspan can kill someone, he will.

Limerick, Ireland:
LIMERICK people are penning suicidal letters at a rate of three a week after being driven to despair by debt, it has been revealed. And a Limerick advocate who provides free advice for people with financial problems is pleading with people to seek advice rather than take drastic action. One lone parent who wrote to the Life After Debt organisation, said she has already tried to commit suicide because she has no way of paying her mortgage, making ends meet and sometimes cannot even put food on the table for herself and her child.

“We have no heat in the house, no food in the fridge and I cannot buy new shoes for my little girl. My electricity is about to be cut off again. “The money I get as a lone parent only lasts a couple of days as I’m always trying to pay bills that are in arrears and I never make any headway. I can’t cope anymore,” one Limerick city woman wrote in a letter to  Seamus Sherlock, founder of the Life after Debt organisation in the city.

I got your limerick right here.

There once was a Maestro celebrated
His ego became quite inflated
He could see no bubble
Nor sign of bank trouble
His Body Count climbs unabated!

Please submit your limericks in the comments.

No, I've got nothing. But I saw this: "We have no heat in the house, no food in the fridge and I cannot buy new shoes for my little girl."

Maybe don't have kids in your next life. Sheesh. Is anyone else looking forward to "peak world population" post-2050 or so?

A senile old "serial killer"
Whose policies grew ever shriller
Has caused many tears
In the span of 5 years
And a rapid decline in Case-Shiller

The key is not less people, but more opportunity.

A man gained the power to be adored
He enabled his friend Barney Frank
People given what they couldn't afford
With a reinvestment from the Bank
In the end is was just a game
Why not with the banks to blame
