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:

Awesome round.  The Willie Wonka references flowed like a river of chocolate, as did the creativity.  Three stood out this week, so it’s a three-way tie for 1st place, and because there are no losers here, everyone else is tied for first runner-up.  The winners are:

Best Wonka References: kblr for his brilliant use of “fizzy lifting drinks” (and for introducing the concept of “fatal front butt)

Fizzy lifting drinks
banned from sale in the U.S.
Cause? Fatal front-butt.

tied with (Which makes this a two-way-three-way tie now, I think.)

Cristal Methodd for her Violet allusion

Violet can’t learn
To keep her hands to herself.
“This gum tastes like ass”.


Most Unique Take: HolyChow (Thank you for noticing the twos–and for making me laugh)

Needs another cross dresser
So sayeth the Lord.

Good round and great job, all.  Here’s today’s photo.
