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.

Check out this round’s winners:

Obviously SeaKat SeaKicked ass this round with her epic homage to both a spurned clown lover and TheHobo (Those things being mutually exclusive, unless there’s something TheHobo would like to share). So, a nod and a big well done to SeaKat for:

Sneak peek at cover
of the next US magazine.
The headline will read:

McSex McScandal!
Ronald McDonald’s Lover
Spills Clown’s Sick Secrets!

(story on page 12)
“I loved him but he used me!”
sobs spurned paramour.

“I did what he asked,
He was really into role-playing,
and that kind of thing.

I would dress up like
The Hamburglar, with the hat
and black zorro mask.

Sometimes I would be
a naughty drive-thru cashier.
I’d wear a visor.

And that’s about it.
He’d have to punish me for
forgetting the fries.

But his all-time fave
would be to pretend that I’m
his Happy Meal gift.”

I laughed; I cried; I cringed at the thought of it and will quite possibly never look at McDonald’s the same way again.

Honorable mentions go to…

AdmittedlyAddicted for her great follow up:

Rule 34, y’all…
and you thought McDonald’s would
not capitalize.

baby fish mouth for her brilliant take:

We were short by one.
Thanks for filling in, Big Mac.
You can’t even tell.

vodkafanta for her pun:

He’s the miggity
miggity miggity mig-
gity Mac Daddy.

I was wondering if anyone was going to use “mac daddy.”  This completed the round–literally and figuratively.

Great job to everyone else, as well.  There were no losers, only people who didn’t win…ahem. OK, on to the next round. Here’s something to grease the gears of creativity.

  1. Yay SeaKat! Epic! And thank you. *sniff* it’s officially a good week! 😉

    and as far as this pic, I need to think on it cuz the one in my head now is lame…probably because I can’t get over the shock value.

  2. That was genius on an other worldly level. I can’t wait to read these. Poor little guy on the right. He is not happy.

  6. Oh, also: THANK YOU!! I couldn’t have done it w/o The Hobo’s inspiration. And I belatedly realized that I missed an opportunity to work in a methamphetamines verse. AdAd, I hope you’ll forgive me! 🙂

  7. Childhood messy fun
    Great paint fight ruined by Mom
    coming back too soon


    I’m rubber, you’re glue.
    It bounces off me and sticks
    …all over, looks like.


    Little Tom Sawyer
    says, When you get done with the
    floor, the fence is next.


    This scene is one of
    the main reasons why I’m glad
    I had no brothers

  8. Cry over spilled milk,
    but if the paint can spills, you
    fingerpaint the couch

    …and the tv screen,
    the table, and then the floor,
    and then each other

  10. damn. still got nothing…

    Also, I’m having issues trying to work methamphetamines into a picture with kids. Genuine, non-smoking, regular bad ass kids.

    *light bulb*

    can’t describe bad ass kids…just
    bad ass parenting.

  11. So apparently
    The TV did rot their minds
    They’re not good painters

  12. The baby sitter
    blamed Americas Funni-
    est Home Videos:

    She was not at all
    Negligent; she went
    for the grand prize. But–

    The camera was set to
    still photos only.

    Everyone knows
    The real money is in web
    Cams anyway. But–

    Still, AFHV.
    She thinks she has them almost
    fully convinced too.

  13. Years later, Little
    Joe would learn that sniffing paint
    is even more fun.
