Cash from Maury Povich

Tis an ode to the glory
of this unemployment story
Got no food to eat
Can't even wash my feet
A quick way to get cash- go on Maury!*

8th place in the "Economical Woe Limericks" contest by
Carolyn Devonshire

*The Maury Povich Show- similar to
Jerry Springer.

    If Maury's handing out dough, where do I sign up for the show? Funny poem, Amy. Congratulations on your win. There were many super Souper entries! Love, Carolyn

    According to my friend, they got paid $500 each free and clear on top of airfare and hotel. And another friend's luggage got lost on the plane and they paid for a nice new wardrobe for him. Just what they told me.

    Are ya sure they get paid Amy? I was always left with the impression that only their hotel and meal bills were paid for as well as air fare. A friend of mine was on one of those shows and ran up a room service bill over $5,000.00. The network was livid but had no choice but to pay the tab. I'm sure they've made adjustments since then. Probably realized they'd be better off just paying their guests after that one. Best of luck in the contest. theKidster was here. (Soup Mail)

    Yep, they do get paid. Some are B.S., some are not...I know a few people who have been on those shows and their stuff was all made up.

    Got a chuckle..I always wonder if they pay those people or if they are actors and actresses that get paid to act like they do...Keep the creative pen flowing..Sara
