Cody's Haiku Mug
« on: June 13, 2006, 08:26:42 AM »
Ok Cody has instructed us to give away some of his mugs.

[ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

This mug will be awarded for a haiku poem about Cody.
This mini contest lasts only 24 hours!
It will end June 14th at 9am NY time.

Just post your entries as replies to this post; you may enter multiple times.
Those who have already received cody mugs may NOT enter.

Quote
"Haiku" is a traditional form of Japanese poetry.  Haiku poems consist of 3 lines.  The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables.  The lines rarely rhyme.

Here's a Haiku to help you remember:

I am first with five
Then seven in the middle --
Five again to end.

You sure about that - do we have to include time travel in the solution too?

looks like you caught cody in the lastest wall street scandal, backdating of stock options (http://accounting.sm...tpros.com/x53383.xml).

Cody is cute so
we made him our own mascot.
Now we feed him coins.

the time has arrived to pick a winner, and it seems everyone has a personal favorite..

but since nudone is cody's creator, it seems only fitting he should choose the winner.. so Rover gets the cup today.

I just received an angry missive from Cody himself insisting that jdd also receive a cup for his haiku (my home is the road).

so congratulations to jdd and Rover both.

they were all great so don't feel bad if you didn't win one - we will be giving out some more cups in the next couple of weeks.

The best part about Rover's poem (about not liking haikus) is that it's not really a haiku (the second line has only 6 syllables).  Great ironic touch. :Thmbsup:
