Thirty years ago, on January 23rd, ThunderCats were on the move and ThunderCats were loosed upon us for the first time in animated form. And even after a well-received reboot was prematurely canceled a couple of years ago, the characters are still a pop-culture touchstone – turns out Mumm-Ra wasn’t the only part of the franchise to be ever-living.
Thanks to our friends at TV Store Online, we’re celebrating the landmark with a snazzy T-shirt and metal belt buckle set. And thanks to a recent weekend thread, I have the perfect contest notion: Nerdy Limericks! Post your best in comments below, and I’ll pick a winner next Friday, Feb 6th, 2015, around noon. Again, my apologies to international readers, but prizes ship to U.S. and Canada addresses only.
My example went something like this:
There once was a jar with a pony
Whose owner would bop his baloney
When a stray bit of heat
Spoiled the beat of his meat
And his dreams leaked like emails from Sony
You can do better. Can’t you?
