Lowku

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.

The last round’s winners and a new image, after the jump:

I’m back from the dead and better than ever!   I promise I’m not a zombie, though. The entries were slim pickens this week, and I don’t mean the dude in Blazing Saddles and Dr. Strangelove, so I am declaring both entries winners.  After all, you entered, and that makes you winners by default. 🙂

So your winners are:

Cristal Methodd with:

Bachelor party
Couldn’t afford the strippers
So Will volunteered.

and

AdmittedlyAddicted with:

Well, at least they were
beer bottles; could have been worse…
at least, so I’m told.

Here’s today’s photo.

  2. I bought the cat ears
    But somehow I still don’t feel
    Like I’m anime.

  5. In order to save
    His mother’s couch, David turned
    His cat into a

    Real live girl. And yet
    She still prefers the arm rest
    To his lap. And she

    Still stares at the screen
    Of his TV with longing
    as though it is still

    More interesting
    Than anything he has
    To offer his cat girl.

    It dangles, he says.
    Why won’t you play with it? Please?
    Bored, she turns away.

  6. You know, in retrospect, that last stanza can kinda stand on it’s own. So I’m resubmitting it as it’s own lowku:

    It dangles, he says.
    Why don’t you play with it? Please?
    Bored, she turns away.

  11. Are all of you sure
    that that is even a girl?
    Reconsider this…

    Ralph couldn’t get a
    girlfriend, so he decided
    he’d be the stand in.

  12. AdAd, for you:

    It is very clear

    methamphetamines.
