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!   The entries were few, but the quality plentiful.  Here are this week’s awards.

Most elegant: Badube

Legs, arms, no faces
Old man violates spaces
Auto limb-salad

Best Reference: HolyChow (It’s not every day you get to fit a Kill Bill allusion in a poem.)

Nutsack Warrior
Makes lady puke. He is no
Hatori Hanzo

Honorable mentions to both bfm and AdAd.  They both made me laugh.

Here’s today’s inspiration:
