Judges: Zero, Anandxxx, Pandareus (the mighty triumvirate!)
Hey, results are in for the Mega Man Robot Master Haiku Battle! We got a lot of great entries (check the original thread here), and it was a super tough job picking winners, but in the end we narrowed it down to three. Kind of. So here we go!
#3 - GelatinousEncore Space is infinite We are insignificant Why do we matter? -Galaxy Man
GelatinousEncore has chosen BIT.TRIP FATE as his prize and will receive it once he gets his Wii code over to me. Great job!!!
#2 - MechaKoopa Ready, my scissors! (Hope he brings paper, not rock) WTF?! Metal?! - Cut Man
MechaKoopa is my sister's husband and he does not own a Wii nor a DS. If he had won this competition elsewhere, he would probably have sent my Wii code in to get a free game. But that wouldn't make much sense here. So, in a gesture of unbridled generosity, he has chosen the writer of his favorite of the haikus to receive his prize instead. Which leads us to...
#MechaKoopa's choice - TriforceBun People say I'm lame but when Hanukkah rolls by guess who gets called first. -Top Man
TriforceBun has chosen Mario Party 2 as his prize and will receive it next time he turns on his Wii. Good show!!!
#1 - ludist210 Haikus are silly Sometimes they don't make much sense Refrigerator -Clown Man
ludist210 has chosen LostWinds as his prize and will receive it once we figure out why we aren't listed as friends yet. Kudos!!!
Thanks again to everyone who got involved and made the contest a sweeping success!
I noticed my entry in the MEGA MAN BOSS ROBOT HAIKU BATTLE!!!!! was not selected as a winning entry. This must be some kind of mistake. I shall now point out reasons why mine was funny and/or why you didn't get it, despite being the best.
Reason 1: It was the best Reason 2: I hate you Reason 3: My jokes are too smart for you Reason 4: Other people had the good sense to reference better jokes Reason 5: I want free stuff
Please consider the content of this letter and re-evaluate the winners. Pick applicants whose real/usernames start with an H. And features an underscore.
I knew I had heard that haiku before. It wasn't just my imagimanation. Huh. Funny how things work out. Of course however, this is an outrage, and I feel Ludist's haiku be stricken from the record. People pour minutes and MINUTES and often some seconds after that into thinking up these haikus, one man should not get by on the use of another person's pre-haiku'd haiku. Also I still think Bun or the one about Cut Man shoulda won.
Also I don't get what's so great about GE's. Its not really funny (then again I guess this contest wasn't really about being funny?) and still think there were better ones. And I shall present them now for they are great:
Thanks good buddy, I didn't think anyone would get mine. Jovelo Points if you can guess what action each sound effect is for.
Also I'm just now realizing that the contest says its for "Boss Robots" as opposed to "Robot Masters", which is what they're called and what I thought it said originally. I thought I could get by since Mega Man is technically a Robot Master. Oh well.
