Close Encounters of the Third Kind


After an encounter with UFOs, a line worker feels undeniably drawn to an isolated area in the wilderness where something spectacular is about to happen.

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). As a good rule of thumb, your haiku should be "safe for work".

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. It has happened to me, and it is not pretty.

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 6 Oct 9:00 PM fwfr time.

Thanks for entering!

Eat your mash, Toby,
Or the aliens will come
And abduct your dad.

It drives you crazy,
A strange longing, a vision.
Then you drive to it.
