Haiku Smackdown II: Electric Haikulu
March 10, 2004
Ok peeps, are you ready for some hardcore Eastern poetry syllable-on-syllable action?
No? Well, fuck you then. I'll just talk to the people who are.
TOMORROW is the next THURSDAY HAIKU SMACKDOWN.
And what is the Thursday Haiku Smackdown? Why, my lands child, it's only the most awesomest thing ever! Sit for a spell and I shall tell the story...
See, last Thursday, I posted an entry. An innocent entry. A bunch of Random Crap I had sitting around my head. The very first comment was from Coleen:
I cannot wait, dude
Journal Con will rock the house
So drunk we'll all be.
(Okay, I am SO done with haiku now.)
Oh, if she only KNEW.
Her comment sparked a wave of haiku madness such the world has never seen. Peer pressure, show-offiness and delighting in our own hilarity helped too. Please for you to enjoy and click here for to see all haiku which that we wrote.
So anyway, we had so much fun we thought we'd do it every Thursday from now on, or until 1) it's no longer fun, or 2) Too many of us get fired for major slacking on Thursdays. We rotate who hosts because we're all greedy, greedy hits-and-comments whores.
This week, your gracious host is Chris of rudecactus.com.
Everyone in the world is welcome to join. Just you know, make sure you love us as much as we love ourselves and be nice. Dirty haikus are encouraged, mean/sexist/racist ones will be smacked down with the Almighty Delete Box. The word "yo" is funny to incorporate and also is a nice all-purpose one-syllable word. You'll see it used a lot. Do not mock or question the yo, yo.
And if you plan to join the Smackdown and want to really feel cool, perhaps you would like to put one of these banners that Chris made on your site? Maybe? Come on, they rock.
