Eighteenth Challenge Result (Host can clear a room.)

December 15, 2008

Hi there! Before we get to Sarah L’s pick, let’s review some haiku:

jenny t found herself in some trouble:

Ref calls party foul:
“10 yards for double dipping!”
Damn. Busted again.

Ben did some punny drinking:

Ref calls party foul…
“Guest, nursing their beverage.”
Three shot penalty!

and dealt with rejection:

Ref calls party! Foul
mood descends on losing team.
No invitations.

and criticism:

Ref calls party “foul”.
Should not have invited him.
Too many critics.

and…pets:

Ref calls “Party Foul;”
his Labrador Receiver.
Strange name for a dog.

Alec argued with the officials:

Ref calls party foul,
but it is not foul at all.
Get your nose checked, bud!

and chastised party poopers:

Ref calls. Party foul!
Whose bright idea was it
to answer that phone?

and quoted Shakespeare:

Ref calls party foul.
“Fair is foul and foul is fair!”
Witch commentary…

and twice broke up the “party”, here:

Ref calls “par”. Ty foul,
But he looks fine. In the end,
all balances out.

and here:

Ref calls part ‘y’ foul.
(Regulations prohibit
calling it by name.)

Sam2u brought in the weather:

Ref calls party foul.
Daft Olympia displays:
cover ‘em with snow!

Here’s what Sarah L has to say:

Here’s my pick – I know it’s two but they’re both by Sam2u and on a related theme so I thought maybe I could get away with it. A delightful pair of fruitcake haiku, thanks for the smiles!

Ref calls party foul.
Fruitcake makes my hot buns cross.
Stay tuned for “Carb Wars”.

and

Ref calls party foul.
An eggnog fruitcake?!?!? … Goodbye!
Host can clear a room.

Thanks Sarah! And congratulations to Sam2u! To keep things from getting confusing, I’m going to make an editorial decision and go with that last haiku; so our new first line is Host can clear a room. Start writing those poems, and I’ll be back next Monday with Sam2u’s pick.

Yours,
Joanna
