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:

You guys never fail to make me laugh, or surprise me with a perspective I never would have considered.   This round’s standouts did both.

Dear John for dear Mort: baby fish mouth

dear mort: leaving you
for stu. spring break forever!

I’m SO glad it isn’t: Cristal Methodd

Trip to Florida.
I thought it was a nude beach.
Grandparents now pissed.

Twist with a twist: HolyChow

We’re in Florida –
You goddamned kids can just stay
On the goddamned lawn.

As usual, everyone did a fantastic job.  I enjoyed them all.  Here’s something to get your creativity flowing today.
