WOW! Shula - it is GOOD to see a post from you! (For those of you who are more recent - Shula was a cornerstone around here when I first discovered the 'cat many many moons ago)

a "Song Challenge!" is a particularly wacky or interesting news item culled from the wilds of the internet (or elsewhere) - and posted as a challenge to lyricists. Sometimes they produce items that are the epitome of mediocre - other times gems - but almost always produce some discussion and generally a few laughs. (Not that there haven't been more serious ones.)

Aine started these years ago - and has been the most successful in selecting topics that seem to inspire people. She maintains a web-site with the results - and awards various virtual treasures to the participants. (Website can be accessed through the quicklinks dropdown menu )
