    The National Poetry Contest had come down to two, a Yale graduate and aredneck from Texas. They were given a word, then allowed two minutes tostudy the word and come up with a poem that contained the word.

    The word they were given was "Timbuktu."

    First to recite his poem was the Yale graduate. He stepped to the microphone and said:

    Slowly across the desert sand
    Trekked a lonely caravan;
    Men on camels, two by two,
    Destination Timbuktu.

    Thecrowd went crazy! No way could the redneck top that, they thought. Theredneck calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:

    Me and Tim a huntin' went.
    Met three whores in a pop up tent.
    They was three, and we was two,
    So I bucked one, and Timbuktu.

    The redneck won hands down!
