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:

Nice round, all.  Everyone’s were awesome, but this time three stood out like a little girl wearing white amidst a sea of tacky.  So here are your awards:

Living the High Life: Cristal Methodd

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.

Methamphabulous: AdmittedlyAddicted (She’s BACK!)

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

Honorable Mention: baby fish mouth (It was a wonderfully unique take. I laughed)

don’t invite her back
she looks tacky in that white
after labor day

I’ve kept it completely clean the last two rounds.  Hopefully this will satisfy both those who are more inspired by the lower end of Lowku and be clean enough for those who aren’t.  It might, however baffle you to the degree you’re unable to function, and while that would defeat my purpose, I feel it has to be shared…and put into poetic form.  So, here’s today’s inspiration.

  18. I’m really struggling with a lowku for this one. All I can think of is how much his overhang looks like half-risen bread dough.

  19. The adage still stands.
    Proven again to be true.
    You are what you eat.

  20. So- two bunnies, an
    oompa loompa, and a gal
    with an extra ass.

    are in play; having a hard
    time with mechanics…

    That mental picture
    is vomit-inducing. Ew.
    Someone pass the bleach.

  21. I am curious how you heard the term lowku. I’ve been writing them since 1995. Larry

  22. I didn’t hear the term. I just created a fairly straightforward pun out of hai/high–lowku to celebrate the low brow moments vs. haiku to celebrate its beauty.

  23. What do you bet someone’s planning to sue?? 😛

    He clearly knows not the terrors that await him in the Applebee’s parking lot, should he anger the squeers.
