The Slimehead Family

Welcome to August’s very prestigious and much awaited Haiku Contest!

I will now unveil this month’s loot – The Orange Roughy

Which is a fish – and it is actually a member of the Slimehead Family. Don’t you wish you were a member of the Slimehead Family, too? That sounds like a whole new line of plush that desperately needs to be made!

Ah, the ever-popular squinty eye method. I am certainly not the first plush maker to utilize this beautiful trick to make the lethargic, sleepy eye. But it creates such a precious look, I decided to give it a whirl.

Here’s 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, August 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) gift for someone you love. Tell your friends! Anyone can win! And stay tuned for more contests to come – I hold them on the 5th of every month!

Yay! Now get crackin’!
