Third Challenge Results

September 1, 2008

Happy Labor Day, y’all! There were some excellent haiku this week. Here’s a quick review:

Deborah had three fabulous contributions:

Weighing down the earth-
tone wedding palette: Aunt Jo’s
day-glo cummerbund.

Weighing down the Earth-
a Kitt Day Retrospective:
Batman souvenirs.

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

Wes weighed in (ha!) with

Weighing down the earth,
and my two stiff aching arms,
she is hot lava.

Michelle gave us

Weighing down the earth-
worm, the slug crawls o’er the mud.
Splat. Foot lands down hard.

And Laurie wrote

Weighing down the earth
With giant bottles of Tang
Astronauts lift off

I came up with

Weighing down the earth:
Someone’s got to do it, so
Pass the tater tots.

And here is Wes’ final judgment:

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

So there you have it, folks! I swear I did not bribe Wes in any way; he just likes his tots! So your first line this week is:

Pass the tater tots.

Start writing, and I’ll see you next week!

Yours,
Joanna

    Pass the tater, tots!
    If we cut it up real small,
    It could last all week.

    Pass the tater tots
    Really deep fry them to hell
    ‘Cause baked is fake, yo.

    Pass the tater tots
    And serve them with tartar sauce

    Pass the tater tots
    slathered in gravy; the cat
