Life in 5,7,5

We at Thundersquee! can’t help but be indignant at the inequities of the poetic form when it comes to expressing the more low brow moments in life. So, to help even the field we offer you Lowku. The game and aim are simple. Twice a week we’ll display an image of one of life’s more “WTF?” moments, and your mission is to carefully select  words that add up to 17 syllables and string them together in 5,7,5 form in order to describe said image or tell its story.

Each Monday and Wednesday the winners of the previous challenge will be announced and a new image will be posted to ignite the next round of genius.

Here are this round’s winners:

I think this round’s winner is rather obvious, and humbling to us all.  It’s not the everyone’s weren’t great, they were.  It’s just, well, one can only imagine that TheHobo possibly had a little too much coffee, or maybe even methamphetamines, and in combination with her creative talents that makes for a low boredom/high lowku threshold…or something…anyway, she kicked ass.  For those of you who didn’t see it, here’s her winning entry.  It’s less of an epic and more of a Lowkopera.

The Hobo says:

(from the driver)
Look here officer,
That kid freaked me the fuck out–
It’s not even prom.

(from the first cop)
Okay, but what I
really want to know, is how
the truck rolled backwards.

(second cop)
There’s not even a road
for the truck to have been on.
Sir, what are you on?

Are you not seeing
How weird that kid is? He’s got
A sewing machine!

(First cop)
And a nice one too.
But back to your dumb driving.
Sir, what are you on?

And I’ll tell you something, I
got them from the kid.

(second cop)
That seems unlikely.
He’s obviously a good kid
on his way to prom.

But there is no prom!
Why don’t you dick bastards see?
That kid is crazy!

(First Cop)
Have an adverse effect sir.
Make you paranoid.

(Second cop)
He’s just a good kid.
There’s nothing weird to see there.
Nice tux, a sweet smile.

And a fucking
Sewing machine, you dumb fucks!
Go investigate!

(cop 1)
Sir, please watch your mouth.
That kid has done nothing wrong.
Time to come with us.

No, really, that kid!
Get off me you stupid mrrrrrph
(tazer sounds) aaaah aaaaah!

This is what I need.
And some lotion, a basket,
And a big deep hole.

mwa ha ha ha
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
ha ha ha ha ha!


Great job everyone.  Here’s today’s inspiration:

  7. Oh my holy gosh
    What if that *is* a butt plug
    Which end goes in first?

    When he’s done with it
    Do they take the gatorade
    And dump it on him?
