Tired of the mundane?
Do you lack challenges in
your life? Write Haiku!!
Yes boys and girls, mums and dads, puppydogs and kittycats, it's time for the....
Pit your skill (or the lack of it ) against other H2G2 researchers! Laugh! Cry! Make a friend! Boldly go where no researcher has gone before!
Yes, I know what you're thinking -- I can't POSSIBLY write Haiku -- but fear not, ANYONE can do it! All it takes is a topic (and that, as you shall see, you don't even need to come up with yourself) and an ability to count to seven!!! As long as you have both hands with most of your fingers intact, you're THERE baby!!!
Yes, it wouldn't be a competition without rules, so here goes...
- Follow the 5-7-5 rule to create your Haiku. That is, the first line has five syllables, the second has seven, and the last, five. Could anything be easier than that?
- Once you've written your Haiku, make sure you leave a topic for the next researcher to Haiku-ise, the more obscure, the better!
- There are all sorts of other elements to a Haiku. You may use these at will, but no researcher will be required to do so.
- Feel free to make your Haiku as bad as possible but please, boys and girls, keep it clean. This is a family show.
That's it!!! Right now, you can join the challenge here, or the new threads at the bottom of this page (it took a little while to come out of moderation , and while we were waiting, new threads were added). The challenge will all eventually be moved to the bottom of this page.
