The Salubrious Slug

Yes! It’s back! Welcome to the Second Monthly PterodactylPants Haiku Contest!

Meet the Salubrious Slug:

sa * lu * bri * ous – favorable to or promoting health; healthful:

Excuse the vocabulary word – I’m studying for the GRE and I love the way this one sounds.

Does this slug promote health and well-being? Sure does! Through hugs . . . and love!

The tongue on this slug is quite formidable! It’s almost the same size as the rest of its body!

Here’s the polka-dotted, slimy slug-belly.

You know the deal –

Want to win this very awesome and never before seen plush? Well, it’s easy! I think up a haiku to accompany each piece I create. All you need to do is think up the haiku that best fits this new creature, and post it as a comment. You’ve got until next Wednesday night, November 12th, 7 pm to get your entries in – when the winner will be randomly chosen and posted that very evening!

Before you break out in a nervous sweat – let me assure you that haiku writing is easy and fun! Just think up a quick 3 lines made up of 5, 7, and 5 syllables (in that order).

Here’s a quick example of one of mine from a previous post:


A Predatorial Haiku:

My tummy rumbles.

You won’t hear me sneaking up

On my tippy toes.

See? It’s just that easy and fun! And the winner will win this very magical plush creature that they have so deftly haiku-ed. So get those haikus in – submit as many as you’d like! A mere three lines stand between you and a life-long plush companion, or a fantastic (and free) holiday gift for someone you love. Tell your friends! Anyone can win! And stay tuned for more contests to come – I’m hoping to be able to hold them on the 5th of every month from here on out.

Yay! Now get crackin’!
