Jude, JoJo, Prudence, Dr. Robert, and many other namesakes from your favorite Beatles songs sing, interact, and emote to some of the best music, choreography, and set designs ever! Here's the link to this Instant Classic.

Abbreviated rules

The first line of a haiku poem has five syllables.
The second line has seven syllables.
The third, and final, line has five syllables.

The Movie Haiku Contest (MHC) is open to every member of the FWFR site. Give it a try if you never have--it's SO EASY!

To enter, all you have to do is think of a Haiku for the current movie, then post into the current thread. (Hint: read it out loud, ticking off the syllables with your fingers as you do so.)

Haikus may be risque, but please, don't make men faint and women scream in doing so (e.g. crotch hockey).

Only one entry per person. However, you may edit your existing entry until 9pm Tuesday FWFR time.


Voting

If you have entered the MHC, then you have to vote. It's required. If you enter but do not vote, you get a whopping 3 point penalty, which can change you from a Champion to a Chump instantly. (Unless, he said smugly, the first-place votes are unanimous...)

"Failing to vote, however, could have drastic consequences. Really. I'm serious. This goes for you, too." So wrote a predecessor, and I couldn't agree more.

You do not have to enter an MHC to vote. Vote away. It'll be just like a lurker vote! Get it???


---------------------------------

For each round, you get to vote for your three favourite haikus. The voting is as follows:

3 pts fwfr a
2 pts fwfr b
1 pt fwfr c
--------------------------------

You may vote only once.
You may not vote for yourself.

You vote by sending me your votes in a PM (Private Message) HERE. Vote deadline is Wed 11 Aug 9:00 AM fwfr time. Thanks for entering!

Maybe, but no better accompaniment than Dana Fuchs performing it.
