I don’t mean to brag (Ok, yeah I do!)

Posted by Eye4Cards on April 22, 2008

I just wanted to brag about placing 3rd in the Friendly Atheist’s simile contest. This is the post where I should be showered with praise. Ok, more likely laughed offstage! He’s got a new contest going on where you have to make up a poster on atheism. I think I’ll give that one a whirl as well…

There was only one entry (not including mine) in our last contest here at FFW. I think I’ll extend it through this next weekend just to not make it so easy for agnohumanist. If no one bites, I’ll duel him in a one on one haiku death match seen live via satellite pay-per-view around the world! Or we’ll post corny haiku at each other until one of us gives up. Whichever comes first. Remember:

Complete your Haiku

Before the NFL draft

Eats up your weekend!

    Congrats on the wins Theo and Skeptigator. I didn’t even place.

    Uncontested competitions can’t really be called competitions, so here goes:

    talking snake, zombie
    malevolent god, buybull
    awake athiest

    I wish I could add more, but coming up with that one took me two days!

    OK, Theo! I’m up to the challenge and will be submitting more entries soon. (BTW, congrats on your 3rd in the similes contest.) In fact, I don’t want an easy victory; I agree with Paine: “The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.” So I will soon repair to my literary dungeon, where I will sit in seclusion, pondering the mysteries of the haiku, subsisting on only water, carrots, whey protein, and green tea, my mind focused resolutely on the intersection of sublime poetry and religious nonsense and absurdity, drawing inspiration from ancient Japanese masters and a long line of freethinkers and debunkers of religion. And then–after the Muses have visited me and I have polished my verse to a otherworldly sheen–then, and only then, Theo, will I emerge with a bundle of razor-like haiku that will slash the opposition to ribbons!

    Lol! I guess I shoud be careful what I ask for! I’m inclined to give it to you just on that response alone. But I think it’ll be ore fun to fight to a metaphorical death instead!

    Besides, you’ve got some competition in Anon!

    Here’s my first one–more to come later. (Back to the dungeon now.)

    A whale gulps Jonah
    Then vomits him up–yeah, right!
    That’s some fish story

    Another:

    Jesus heals sick guy
    Sends evil spirits to pigs
    Why? What did they do?

    Holy crap agno! With a response like that you should really think about becoming an English teacher.
