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:

Gauntlets were thrown and challenges risen to.  Today’s victors can hold their heads high, as each has assured her (or his) place in Lowku’s Elysian Fields when their time comes.

The award for Epic-ku Incorporating all 4 Photos: TheHobo

Super and Spidey,
R2D2 and Chewey–
Costume time is on.

They’ll have such fun
Strutting their stuff, living it
Up at Comic Con.

Not everyone,
Can have such fun with costumes
On of heroes gone.

Bellies out, tights on,
Merrily presented to
Those at Comic Con.

One Captain sits, he’s
All alone, staring at the
The girl his heart won.

That lovely day when
He saw her twirl her red skirt
Out at Comic Con.

They battled wills and
Had a hot dog, stood in line
To see Lee, the don.

Who signed his name on
A rare comic they found that
Day at Comic Con.

And every year,
Again they’d go, happily
With their costumes on.

And then, it happened
That fateful day, ending in
Tears at Comic Con.

Screaming women came
To see a man who played a
vamp with sparkles on.

And Captain’s girl, caught
Up in the crowd, was crushed to
Death at Comic Con.

Super and Spidey,
R2D2 and Chewey–
Can go and have fun.

They’ll laugh and play
And have a great day, dressing
Up at Comic Con.

This year the Captain
Will not be there, his blue
and red costume on.

He’ll be at home, in
her slippers, drinking away
Dreams of Comic Con.

(The phrase “with costumes On of heroes gone” was especially good, I thought, and the last part about Captain America was oddly touching, haha.)

You can never get tired of (or on) methamphetamines, so–

Epic Use of (Metaphorical) Methamphetamines: AdmittedlyAddicted

*sigh* a tall order,
considering they are all
likely doing meth.

But, for my hags, I
will surrender and see what
comes of this fine mess.

An obvious ode
to the methamphetamines
is required here.

For Potbelly Man
had to borrow Superman
and a cancer stick.

His girlfriend left him
and took with her all of the

Spiderman, Jr.
found mommy and dad’s stash of

They thought he couldn’t
reach; they didn’t consider
the motivation.

My son watches Star
Wars, so it’s hard to include

And for the last, I
must resort to the trusty
program known to all…

For this must be a
prime example of the phrase:
“D.A.R.E! to stay off drugs.”

(It was all great, but I’m still laughing about:  “Spiderman, Jr. found mommy and dad’s stash of methamphetamines.”)

But size doesn’t always matter, and his small yet elegantly formed entry  shone in its comparative sparsity. (P.S. I promise never to refer to your small yet elegantly formed entry again.)

So, for his “3 Lines, 3 Photos” Lowku, the Beauty in Simplicity award goes to: kblr (not Kahn)

Spidey recalls youth
Jewish droid mugs with wookiee
the captain laments

(Pedant points for spelling wookiee correctly.)

OK, fine, everyone is a winner because TT2’s first entry keeps making me laugh, so the What Would Batman Do? award goes to: You guessed it, TT2

must get the cookie
web slinging action a go
what would batman do?

OK, on to today’s challenge.

  2. haaahahaha, now, I’m very happy that I quit paying attention to business law to submit that. 🙂 This new one is…disturbing.

    How did they fall for
    the “I’m Edward Cullen” line?

    It just goes to show
    Twihards don’t care if they think
    it COULD be R. Patz.

    (Sorry, I’m not sure why he’s on the brain, but that’s what I thought of first…the crazy twihards.)

  3. AdmittedlyAddicted: first I felt indignation because I only skimmed your lowku. Then, after reading thoroughly, I laughed until I cried.

  4. AdAd – hahaha!!

    True Story: My browser opened this page from the bottom, for some reason, so I had to scroll up — I saw the 2 girls’ heads and the pale, scrawny body and I ****so**** thought that this was going to be a creepy RPattz pic!!
