Nineteenth Challenge Result (Juggles the steak knives)

December 22, 2008

Hi everyone! I hope you’re staying warm. I’ll have Sam2u take it from here:

There was a good crop of haikus this week we should recap.

It’s always great to start strong with flatulence!

From Kevin:

Host can clear a room
With one look in her eye that
Says, “Dude, I farted.”

From Alec:

Host can clear a room
Whoopie cushions all around
Party poopers leave

Some strong personalities made an appearance.

From Ben:

Host can clear a room,
announcing “Heeeeeeeres Dick Cheney!!”
Booking agent fired.

From Lesa Pinker:

Host can clear a room
Bill O’Reilly makes ME flee,
That dude is a tool.

And even the thin wafer host got some recognition.

From Deborah:

Host can clear a room:
sinners unshriven, wary
of tell-all wafer.

and again from Deborah:

Host can clear a room:
“recovering” Catholics,
wary of wafer.

We heard from some captive & disillusioned party guests:

From Sarah L.:

Host can clear a room.
Did somebody say charades?
Three words: Ciao suckers!

From ismoon.maria:

Host can clear a room
boring and smelly, fake smiles
Washed my hair for this?

From Joanna:

Host can clear a room
by uttering two small words:
“Wedding video.”

And a few who made me want to check guns at the door…

From Ben:

Host can clear a room.
Complain and she pulls a gun.
Salad *was* wilted.

From JennyT:

Host can clear a room:
gun raised, moving silently.
Bam! Missed the ninja.

For balance, we heard from hosts facing cleanup chores.

From Alec:

Host can clear a room
Swift and true, he wastes no time
Zamboni driver

From JennyT:
Host can clear a room.
Clean-up cats arrive, saying:
“nom nom nom nom nom.”

And again from JennyT:

Host can clear a room
Over and over. Isn’t
OCD a bitch?

And about some *very* unwanted guests:

From JennyT:

Host can clear a room
So parasites can rhumba.
Colon is not pleased.

I was torn between Alec’s whoopie cushions and Joanna’s wedding video (which truly describes the situational pain!). So I split the difference and chose Ben’s knife juggling act.

Host can clear a room;
he gets boisterous when drunk.
Juggles the steak knives

Thanks, Sam2u! And congratulations to Ben! Our new first line is Juggles the steak knifes. Have fun, and I’ll be back with Ben’s pick on Monday.

Yours,
Joanna
