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!
Ah, bummer. ludist210 and I chose the same Robot Master, and had goofy haikus. Yet my reference to the game was lost on the judges, I think. Oh well. ludist's humor was pretty good, though. I mean, c'mon! Refridgerator?!? HA! That's classic.
I can dig it. I'm not saying mine's better or anything. But mine references the game the Robot Master comes from, and I think that was lost on a lot of people. Judges included. I get the feeling the top choices were based on humor, not on in-game stuff.
I liked Dillo's the best. At first I was like "wat" but then I lol'd. I wonder how many didn't get to experience stage two of that process. I also assume it was disqualified for not being from a Robot Master.
Mecha's and Bun's were great. On the other hand, GE is terrible and so are his haikus because I blame him for my purchase of LostWinds.
This contest was fun. Many laughs were shared with friends. A winner is you!
