The_Mighty_Toast scores a copy of Red Faction: Armageddon for himself (send me your info!). He's probably laughing at you all right now. Laughing and laughing and... maybe chuckling. I mean, he walked into the Haiku Friday before E3 and knew that he'd walk out with a great shot at winning.
Why? Because there were only four entries. Four. That's like... not a lot. I mean, even if you had a finger chopped off by an angry gorilla swinging a knife, you'd still be able to count that many entries on one hand. An angry gorilla guys, I mean, c'mon. What the hell is that?
While Haiku Fridays may be down, it's not yet out. This week, we're throwing $20 for the PSN your way and all you have to do to catch it is construct a net out of syllables. Yes, a haiku net. This week's secret ingredient isn't a video, or music, or even a beloved gaming mascot. So just what kind of haiku are you supposed to be writing this week?
We're about to take Haiku Fridays behind the curtain and rework the format so that we don't have a week with only four entrants ever again. Seriously, that was just sad! Another problem Haiku Fridays has is that we end up giving the same people prizes every week. Now as much as I love Klandathu, SweetHat, sl33pythyme, and The_Might_Toast for entering last week, I end up having to pick from their entries far too often.
So, your mission, should you want to win a $20 PSN card is as follows: write a haiku about any one of the four users above. The trick? They can't enter. I mean, they can enter, but they can't win! They're just a bunch of suckers! I'm trying to give the rest of you, the readers too meek and frightful to face off against those mighty haiku craftsmen, a shot at winning. I'm also not going to let Haiku Fridays run all the way until next week. The winner will be announced on Monday in The News.
Haiku Fridays is lagging.
Write a haiku about Klandathu, SweetHat, sl33pythyme, or The_Mighty_Toast to win a $20 PSN Giftcard.
The winner will be announced on Monday in The News.
After that, Haiku Fridays may go on a brief hiatus while we retool our weekly giveaway. I'll be honest with you, the response this week will help determine how long that hiatus will be. GET TO IT IN THE COMMENTS PEOPLE!
