Well, here they are:

1.
There was an old fellow of Nome
Whose forehead resembled a dome
He measured his worth
By his cranial girth
And his lack of a need for a comb

2.
She had a chance to move from Nome.
She said, "I'd rather be in Rome.
The weather's better.
Hot men wear leather.
Some priests inspire under a dome."

3.
Nudists ought not live in Nome
Too frigid to call it your home
It's often so chilly
You'll freeze nose and willy
You'd better try Naples or Rome.

4.
A day shopping for veges in Nome
Wasn't easy 'coz Nome didnt grome
But the Pilgrim Hot Springs
Is about to change things
'Coz they grome and they shome and we ome.

5.
There once was a fellow, Jerome
From a very cold city called Nome.
His beard - it was frozen,
And while he was dozin',
The kids would all spray it with foam.

6.
A baldy who lived up in Nome
Has never had need of a comb.
He seldom gets chilly
(Now this may sound silly)
A sea otter sleeps on his dome.

7.
A tech-savvy hunter from Nome
Brought his laptop whenever he'd roam
"I've been on Safari
In search of my quarry
But frankly I'd rather use Chrome..."

8.
"Goodbye, goodbye," he said to Nome.
"I much prefer a warmer home.
Somewhere that's sunny.
You'll be my honey.
We'll make a life on love that's grown."

9.
A shapely young woman of Nome
Backed into a butcher shop tome
Disaster, I'd say
And up to this day
She seldom if ever leaves home

I'll go with #7 because I can't resist a good pun. I also liked the pitch-perfect #1 and the verbally very clever #4.

I thought I had voted already but I can't remember which one I thought I voted for so I think I'll choose again and have 3.

Nine limericks, five authors, only three votes? Surely _someone_ else must have an opinion worth expressing...

I fear the next location must be a ghost town.

Well we'd have a fair selection to choose from.
