This week's prompt is Wikileaks

There's always a danger with topical news items that they won't be topical everywhere, but the release of hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables means there's enough scandal and embarrassment for everyone if you dig deep enough. Wikileaks: the gift that keeps on giving.

Snowbound limericks poll

This week we've been writing about being Snowbound.

Snow prevention by gritsinmisery
My friends across the Pond want to know
How I handle large amounts of snow.
In October I buy
Snow boots, salt for my drive
Guaranteeing said snow’s a no-show.

If You're Married, You Know Exactly What I'm Talking About by nsfinch
When it snows, and I'm stuck in my house,
I'd be happy and snug as a mouse,
But for one complication
That bears contemplation:

This week's prompt is Snowbound

Sticking with a seasonal theme; we Brits famously can't handle snow. It comes along so infrequently that we don't prepare and don't know how to handle it when it arrives, so it can shut down the whole country leaving us to spend the winter vigorously complaining about it. (Those born beyond these fair shores may not be aware that complaining is the British national sport.) But last winter was the worst we've had in many a year, and this one looks set to be just as bad. So maybe we should ask some more experienced hands for advice.

This week *cough* we've been writing about Xmas encroaching. I let this one run on a bit because we got some entries just as I was about to close it.

What's that you say that I should do?
Bake some roasted Kangaroo?
I think not!
Not in my pot!
I shall say thanks but no thanks to you!

What Happened to Thanksgiving? by nsfinch
As the last trick-or-treaters are stopping,
It's immediately time to go shopping.
And whatever's the reason?
Why, it's now Christmas season.
You want bargains? You'd better get hopping!

This week's prompt is Xmas encroaching

So why are we going for this topic when it's still only the beginning of November? Well, why don't we ask all those shops that have been playing carols since early October.
