Az Optical Society of America bulvár(?)lapja az Optics News
1977-ben pályázatot írt ki Limerickekre. A nyertes művek:

Első díj:

"With impotence I had been trubled,"
An optician confessed, and then bubbled:
"An' sure and I'm thankin'
That man Peter Franken
For having my frequency doubled!"
(J.D.Macomber, Dharhan, Saudi Arabia)
(Peter Franken volt 1997-ben az OSA elnöke)
Második díj:

Though a Michelson interferometer,
Equipped with a Golay bolometer,
Could mesure the heat
In grilled hamburger meat,
It will never replace the thermometer.
(F.F.Hall, Boulder, Colorado)

Harmadik díj:

Optical Frustration

In science, I said almost gaily,
New discoveries are made nearly daily;
But in optics it's true
There is nothing new,
'Twas done before by Lord Raylegh.
(P.Nisenson, Lexinton, Mass.)


On Interference

Sir Isaac was one of those kings
Of optics and other bright things;
But when he took a shower,
He'd scrub for an hour
On his tub to avoid Newton's Rings.
(D.A,Richards, Rochester, N.Y.)
