Second Challenge Results

August 26, 2008

Hello again, folks! Let’s turn things over to guest blogger, Laurie:

Despite Joanna’s doubts about this week’s starting line, you all rose to the challenge. Let’s review, shall we?

Barry has a gift for the catty:

We suspect Kid Rock
will be McCain’s VP nom.
Can’t be worse than Dick!!!

and Barry again:

We suspect Kid Rock
didn’t get a callback for
“High School Musical”

Mattrix brought us the hostile:

We — “Suspect Kid” — ROCK!!!
You — “Boring Adult” — DO NOT!!!
Suspect THIS, oldster!!!

And Johanna was more accepting:

We suspect Kid Rock
is neither Kid nor Rock, but
who are we to judge?

Kevin brought us a grammar lesson. (Please understand how tempted I was to choose this one, just so that we could have another week of Kid Rock haiku.)

We suspect Kid Rock
You (plural) suspect Kid Rock
They suspect Kid Rock

Joanna chimed in for the conspiracy theory contingent:

“We suspect ‘kid’ rock
is the music of Satan!”
sputtered Pastor Goat.

And voicing what we all knew but couldn’t bear to break to Kid Rock, Jen wrote:

We suspect Kid Rock
Thought marriage to Pam would last
but we knew better

This late entry from Johanna almost swayed me from my choice:

We suspect Kid Rock
thought “country music star” brought

After consulting co-workers and strangers, I have chosen Wes’s entry as this week’s winner:

We suspect Kid Rock
Is the son of Dad Boulder
Weighing down the earth

Thanks, everybody! This has been fun.

Yay Laurie! Thanks for stepping up to the plate–or some sports metaphor or other. So, people, your first line this week is Weighing down the earth. Hopefully, Wes will be choosing his favorite on Monday.

    Weighing down the Earth
    With one hand, with the other
    She flung out the stars.

    Weighing down the earth-

    My fave for weighing down the earth is Joanna’s
    tater tots, because it’s real and I’m hungry
