We asked you to come up with a clever photo caption for this picture and received a lot of great captions.
It was Art’s entry, however, that caught our eye, and won our Southern Food & Wine Festival prize:

“Man uses part of shirt as ingredient to make cake.
Customer loves it!”

Weren’t a winner? Well, you still have a chance to win tickets for our New York Wine & Food Festival over on our Facebook page!

WINNERS: Bobby Flay Limerick Throwdown

by in View All Posts, July 15th, 2009

You guys really went all out for our Bobby Flay limerick contest! We recieved over 300 entries on FNDish.com and Facebook.com/FoodNetwork. It was a hard choice, but below are the three submissions that stood out to us:

#1 – Jeremy found our FN Dish contest on Facebook and submitted this witty limerick:

There once was a cow who was stricken
With the need to make us eat more chicken
But one fateful day
The cow met Bobby Flay
And now she thinks beef’s finger-lickin’!

#2 – We felt that Karen captured the soul of Bobby’s burger outlook:

“A burgers just a burger” you’ll say
Until you’ve found Bobby Flay.
The meat you’ll be grilling
And the fixins’ make them thrilling
“A burgers just a burger? – Not Today!”

#3 – Ah, the Sherwood family. Their full-family participation (mother, father and daughter) really impressed us. Here are four of the twenty limericks they submitted, starting with Sherwood Father, Terry, after he apparently realized his wife was spending all day coming up with limericks for our contest:

There once was a blogger named Rose,
Who obsessively tried to compose,
Five limericks a day
About Bobby Flay,
Will she win only Food Network knows!

-Terry

My husband thinks he’s the grill master,
But Bobby Flay cooks so much faster.
He grills meat with heat
And his burgers are treats.
My spouse is becoming a true bastard.

-Rose

There once was a husband and wife
Who sat up all night in strife.
With no time to play,
It was limericks All Day!
Obviously, they had no life.

– Laira (Sherwood Daughter)

Thank you FN for all of the fun.
We’ve played the game and had a good run.
It’s Bobby’s last wish
That we should finish.
Flay’s burgers have certainly won!

– Terry and Rose

Hope everyone had as much fun writing these limericks as we did reading them. Should we do more contests like this? Shout out your suggestions!

Bobby Flay Quizdown — Contest!

CONTEST!

Submissions are now closed! Three winners will be chosen by our Food Network limerick experts this week and notified by email. Check back on The FN Dish to see the winning limericks later in the week.

*****

We’re giving away THREE autographed copies of Bobby Flay’s new book, Burgers, Fries & Shakes. To WIN, create an original limerick with the subject either about Bobby Flay or burgers.

What is a limerick, you ask
? A limerick is a five-line poem with an AABBA rhyming pattern. Here’s an example to get your juices flowing:

There once was a cow named “Fate”
The laziest in all of upstate.
She only ate grass
And passed lots of gas.
Now, she lays on my plate
