Bring the romantic odes, y’all. Gimme. I need them. 

Six-day load awaits

Someone who can party right

(Wife gets home at 5:00.)

I bought some Panax today to add to the booty pile. Let’s try this again: HAIKUYD2: Haiku for Life. Send your HaikUYD to me here, @uyd4life on twitter, or to uyd4life@gmail.com. 
Haiku your asses off.
(And yes, prior entrants are still registered. Gifts and prizes to be had. UYD4Life. Sethro)

on the lawn, danced a baby

@smashthsilence

Really super ‘kus, guys! I’ll do a roundup of them soon. Send in your HaikUYD, too!

Quote

"Robots carry olds
Seatbelts for everyone
It’s UYD, dude"

- Amada writes like a modern-day Jules Verne with a touch of Ralph Nader, c. 1970. Another tour-de-force entry in our HaikUYD contest.

The dancecaster’s year

Every Kiss begins with Kaye

Pilot season’s here

Marcia sends a leaf

The Christmas Creep begins, ends

Then, next year for life

Don’t you think you can do better than that?

To kick it with Craigslist ads,
Panax and Whole Foods"

"Jonathan, Roma,
Youse think that baby
ever had a facial?"

Dante, making an excellent start.

So far, he’s a shoo-in for the UYD hanky, being the first entrant. I wonder what color he will choose for his prize?

But you’re our great white prophet!

I and I can’t/won’t.

Vote for your favorite here or at the forum!

You can vote once a day through Sunday. That seems fair, right?

The entire UYD4Life staff met (in the ether) and voted on our top five HiakUYD finalists. Here they are in alphabetical order. It was so difficult to choose only five, and I was personally overridden a number of times—hard. I’m just glad we don’t have to decide the winner: THAT’S YOUR JOB! A link to a poll will be posted on here on Friday, Feb. 17 at 12 noon and will be open all weekend for voting. {The poll itself will be hosted on the front page of the HaikUYD thread on the Great Western Forum. It will be where my first haiku is now. See, not scary. Ok? OK!} Here they are!

Congratulations, finalists!

1. After Stand by Me

2. Doctor Doolittle

   The Professor and Norbit

3. How to party right?

To the other contenders: your talents made our choice so difficult. I honestly didn’t expect nearly this kind of amazo talent and participation when I planned the contest. We will post your haikus (nominated or not) on the site occasionally to highlight your wonderful works, if that’s coo’. Additionally, just because you are not a finalist does not mean that you will not be included in the HaikUYD gift that makes it to the studio. Below is a look at the small start I’ve made in Calligraphing your poetry.


We look forward to many more contests with super silly, fun UYD prizes. We will continue to organize efforts celebrate UYD in new and creative ways. 

Love always, Sethro

[As usual, you can PM me, aighead, caitlin, fat dennis, landfill bill, or gene wildest in the uyd forum, @uyd4life twit, uyd4life@gmail.com, or message us here with questions or comments. UYDLOVE from all of us.]

AND PLEASE, KEEP THE HAIKUS COMING. JUST BECAUSE THE CONTEST IS ENDING DOESN’T MEAN THE FUN IS.

Haiku. The cheapest, least resistant, most easily co-opted traditional Asian art form since the woodblock print.

The Great Wave, by Hokusai

Let’s do it! Best one wins a magnet.

(Not totes magotes, unless you want to rip a totes tag off something at the mall [shudder] and mail it to me). And they don’t actually hold shit very well, like, magnetically, but they’re cute! And it’ll have a SUPER cute card. I’m known for my Japanese woodblock card making skills.
