Jewish Bowling Haiku? Jewish Bowling Haiku
Win a pair of tickets to our party
Next Tuesday, November 30, at Brooklyn Bowl, a very short walk from the Bedford L stop in Williamsburg, comedian Eugene Mirman, Soulico, The Sway Machinery, and a whole lotta Jews looking to start Hanukkah off right will be bowling and partying at JDub Records’ Festival of Strikes, co-sponsored by Tablet Magazine.
Wanna go? Wanna go for free? We have a few pairs of tickets. so howsabout we have a Jewish bowling haiku or limerick contest? Write your favorite Jewish-bowling themed haiku or limerick, and either leave it the comments; Tweet it @tabletmag; put it in the Facebook comments of this post; or email it to email@example.com. We will announce the winners (who will be able to pick up their tickets at the door) and, of course, publish their poems next Monday.
Oh, and top this:
One chef made his latkes with butter,
Using no oil, like some sort of nutter,
The potatoes did fry,
But I can’t tell a lie,
The result went straight to the gutter.
Bowling similes count! (And a Hanukkah reference is not required.)

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
