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:

Today we have a tie between Roxydarling and TheHobo for their Epic-kus.

Roxydarling’s trip through Disneyland to save a dwarf from a stool:

Do not be afeared,
lil’ dwarf. With six more left, she
won’t notice you’re gone.

I know a great place
in the 100 Acre Wood
to hide for a while.

Quick! take my hand and
we’ll never talk about this
scary stool again.

TheHobo’s twisted ode…to Buffalo Bill?:

Mom always hand made
Halloween costumes each year
For Jack and Billy.

Jack’s favorite one
Was the gnome, but Billy liked
His buffalo one.

Jack outgrew them young
But little Billy really
Took to sewing things.

When mom died, Billy
Never felt the same. Until
He decided to

Make his own costume
Better than what mom made, and
Never take it off.

And an honorable mention to vodkafanta for her brilliant new Travelocity campaign (and stirring use of stool):

Easter special: kids fly free!
Stool not included.

As usual, great job, everyone.  Here’s today’s image:

  5. The ladies get dressed
    for the yearly gala of
    the Redneck Yacht Club.

    They drink High Life from
    champagne flutes. Duh it says it’s
    the “Champagne of Beers”.

    The flamingos ain’t
    plastic. Flowers ain’t either.
    Now that’s sure classy.

    Venus ice sculpture
    and… shoot, Jerry’s stuck again.
    The third time tonight.

  8. The bride isn’t small
    The bride’s maids are really big
    Dressing them was hard

    Druscilla wore orange, too
    She hated her twin.

  13. This is what happens
    when radio shows give away
    seats at nice events.

    They can’t see faces,
    and never know if they’re on

    Color blindness does in fact
    Run in families.
