The Contest Contest CONTEST!

December 29th, 2008 by · 165 Comments

today is haiku day 1

Finally following up on The Contest Contest, here is the Contest spawned by the Contest Contest. (…OK, now that word just sounds weird.) There were some great entries, some pure batsh*t madness, and various combinations of the preceding.

The winner is our bluntly-monikered friend Kris for this entry:

    Two words for you:

    Rifftrax Haiku. Example.

    I love the water.
    I don’t like sand, so coarse, dry.
    George nods, continues.

Though I like the haiku-like spareness of Kris’ contest instructions AND his/her name, let me elaborate just a bit:

1) The haiku must be related to a Rifftrax.

2) Must be in the English haiku form, which is: “a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.”

3) Write entries in comments below.

4) Deadline: 1/5/2009, 11:59 PM.

(Kris, please claim the free Riffrax of your choice by emailing the lovely, leggy Erik: ERIK AT RIFFTRAX DOT COM.)
