The LO/KPOJ "Lost Limerick Challenge"

This morning's Oregon news limericks, as written by me, read by quizmaster TJ of Loaded Orygun, and answered (usually) by Carl, Christine,and Paul on the KPOJ 620AM Morning Show, are posted at LO.

Carl, channeling the bit of college lore advising us, when in doubt on a multiple-choice test, always to choose "C," experimented with giving "salmon" as the answer to every limerick. Unfortunately, it turns out that "salmon" wasn't the correct answer even for the limerick that was about salmon. Fortunately Christine had his back, as you'll hear.

And, like pasta leftovers that are better the second time around, we ended up once again with an extra limerick that didn't make it on the air, so here's your chance to play along at home. Fill in the blank with the word or phrase from this week's Oregon news:

For months we've been caught in between
Public health and a virus unseen,
But the outlook's less bleak,
For beginning this week
We can finally get ___________.

(The answer can be found in the Comments below, or in this week's Spanning the State at Loaded Orygun.)

Answer: Swine flu vaccine

The story: Beginning this week, swine flu vaccine will be available in Oregon. Consult your physician.

The biggest vector for flu this winter--the public school system--is working hard on preventing the spread of the flu to begin with, not just on making plans to close schools once it hits.
