Over at the Portland Water Bureau blog, they're hoping that you'll write a limerick homage to the Benson Bubblers.
Something like this...
If historical landmarks you seek,
Out in Portland we’ve something unique:
Benson Bubblers you’ll see
Drinking water flows free
And they’re cleaned every day of the week.*
(Of course, the city provides this disclaimer... "The Water Bureau doesn't clean the Benson bubbler bowls daily.")
The contest deadline is Wednesday at 5 p.m. Make your entries here.
Meanwhile, feel free to use this space to post your own limericks about Portland - any topic is fair game.
