Finally: The Buckyball Haiku Contest Winners

September 10, 2009


First of all, I'd like to apologize for taking so long to grade your haiku, but I took my time and read EVERY SINGLE ONE. I just wasn't expecting 1,600 entries, since I didn't even get that many comments ON MY BIRTHDAY. Read: everyone who entered but didn't wish me a happy birthday was disqualified. I jest. But seriously, you all did great and I'm very proud of the quality of poetry (most of) you wrote. Also, a bunch of you are clearly special needs. But that's okay, so am I. We'll have more contests in the future just as soon as people contact me with free swag to give away (I'm looking at you, Mercedes). Also, I can't stress how near impossible it was to choose winners. I haven't slept in four days trying to sort through all this awesome. And now, the moment you've all been waiting for, the winners:

Grand Prize:

407. AM

Powered by man flesh
Robots hunt down last blogger
Cry Geekologie

Runners Up (in no particular order):

1014. pellaz

Red skies born in flame
Metal masters torment us
Prophet was ignored

74. Matt

On the internet,
Dangerous to go alone...
Take Geekologie

1221. well thats nice

The Robots bring doom
So before we are all killed
Post Zelda Side Boob

There you have it, I guess I was really feeling Zelda and the robot apocalypse (but don't think I didn't enjoy your dinosaur entries -- they made me so hot!). I will be contacting the winners tomorrow. And again, it really was impossible to choose winners. I had the field narrowed down to 190 (including yours) and had to choose four. But don't worry, you'll win next time. Thanks for participating everyone, and I don't care what everybody else says: you're all winners in my book.

Get Buckyballs
