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
-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!

Don't worry, no rush. I think ludist's Wii just broke too, lol. Bad timing.

Congratulations to the winners!

Would anyone be opposed to me posting a small article on the PK Gaming blog? I'd love to show off all the creativity this contest brought.

Credit would be given to Zero for the concept and credit would be given to any users published to the blog. Maybe nobody cares if I did this but I'd rather ask for permission first. :)

If you linky here, sure, do it up.

Most def. I already recently linked to the forums when I promoted Negative World in my Playing The Classics: Donkey Kong Country: Vol 1. :)

I have Zero's blessing... I assume all writers of haikus are cool too?

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.

Congrats to the winners! This was a really smart idea, and a lot of the entries made the best of it.

Well I don't get your sense of humor, but whatev. I would've picked Bun's or Nate's.

Congrats to the winners.

I would've picked mine. Because "comes" also means "ejaculates."

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.

Clown Man's not funny, he's creepy.

@DrFinkelstein Thanks for selecting mine for your blog, I'm honored

Don't worry, I caught it! One of the weirdest last words I've heard in a game.

Thanks for Mario Party 2, Zero! I've already put in a couple hours into it tonight.

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!

@gamewizard65 I think he said his Wii broke or something. So it may be awhile.

Unbridled generosity, and Zero told me to! (well, hinted). I think TriforceBun's should've made the final three anyway for sure.
