Get Ready To Rumble!

Okay peeps! Time to bust out your Haiku chops and get to fightin’. Someone is about to become the first Haiku Kung Fu Champion, and the proud owner of a sassy new pendant featuring the word of the month: smitten. You know the drill: use smitten in a haiku and post it in your comment. Want official rules? Read them here.

In two weeks submissions will end and the haikus will be moved to the voting booth where you all will be able to rate them from one to five stars. The highest rated haiku will win, so long as I don’t smell any foul play…. if so, I will choose the winner. In the case of a tie, there will be a showdown, you’ll get to vote again, and then the champion will be crowned.

Hiiiiiiyyyyyy- KU!

P.S. If you flipped out over the Chuck Norris vs. Godzilla artwork, it’s by Jeremy at Jkoob13. (Thanks Jeremy!) Now go get yourself a postcard and write a haiku on it. Let Chuck inspire you, or scare you into the Haiku Kung Fu Hall of Fame! Do it!

  23. Fhina!! I came back for a PS, because assuming you posted this haiku here to WIN a pendant, you’ll be needing to come on back and try, try again. I do adore the splendid haiku you left, but it doesn’t qualify to go on to the voting round, as it doesn’t include "smitten." I can see that you can EASILY pull out the big guns and go to town on that sucker… so come on back, and leave us another gem so you have a fair chance at decorating your neck with a bit of smitten tin. Well, silver. But you catch my drift! Had some technical difficulties earlier, but adding you to blogroll now. Do people know this blog by wild at heart, or by a woman of no importance?? Want to get it right! Thanks lady! Love your wit.
