Contest!

Hai-Kuultest – Part Three

The 500th haiku came and went like a bat out of hell. It is time for another contest to celebrate the milestone. I was supposed to wait for Drea to indicate what the next photo was to be, but she thought it would be better to ignore that and request another ten million poems.

The contest will be similar to the last one. Check out the rules below.


Starting today, at 13:00 EST, I will be taking requests for Hai-Kuul. The 40th request wins. The rules are as follows..

  • The request must be made in the Hai-Kuul post on the sidebar as a comment. Any other Hai-Kuul request will not be counted as an entry, but I will create a Haiku for it regardless.
  • You cannot submit more than one request at a time. Thus five requests in the same comment only count as one entry.
  • You cannot submit more than one comment in a row at a time. Thus, if you were to submit two comments in a row, it would only count as one entry.
  • The Request must be original. No duplicates (which means you have to read the other ones). Duplicate requests will be deleted.
  • No members of my family are eligible for this. Any request from my family will be ignored (I will still write a haiku for the request though).
  • As of August 09, 2005, any request containing over ten topics in length will be deleted, and will thus not count as an entry.
  • The winner of the last contest cannot win this time. However, that person may contribute suggestions, and their entries will count towards the 40 entries. Should this person submit the 40th entry, the 41st will be the winner.
  • To receive the prize (there is only one), you must be able to provide me with a mailing address.


The prize for the 40th requestor will be an 8×10 glossy limited print (4/100) of a Moonlit Night in Algonquin Park (on 8.5×11 Canon Professional Photo Paper).

The 500th Haiku has already occurred due to the fact that Drea is a request-o-matic. She wins a 4×6 of the photo…



Good luck!

UPDATE (Aug 15, 2005): This contest is now closed.

Hai-Kuul – July 04, 2005

Tampons (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Only a man would
Design feminine products
That looked like grenades


Ain’t That Sweet? (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Kids inspire giggles
To the childless onlooker
Parents just shudder


Bizarro! (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
You see a stranger
With a large bright blue mohawk
You are strange to him


Let Me Out! (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
You don’t feel like most
You’re in society’s cage
Be your own person!


High Priority (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Every man knows
That the best policy is
To
really listen


Cahoots (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Even great heroes
Need some kind of cavalry
Long live the sidekick!


Bigger=Better? (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Texan frame of mind
Does not take into account
Horrible migraines


Hello Sunshine! (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
It’s rained for so long
I thought I would have to spend
My life under clouds


This One Shall Be the Best and None Shall Ever Top it (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Dearest Theresa
Sadly, in Haiku there is
No such thing as best


My Dog Had Diarrhoea While I Was Asleep (Requested by edplue79)
While I was asleep
And my mind was relaxing
So was his sphincter


Being Bored In the Tanning Bed With Fifteen Minutes Left (Requested by edplue79)
My mind is racing
For something to think about
While my body bakes


A Belated Happy Canada Day to my neighbours up here!
A Happy Independance Day to our neighbours in the South!
