How to enter: just reply to this thread with a Black Friday-themed haiku. For those unfamiliar with it, a haiku is a 3-line poem with the first, second and third lines having 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively. It does not have to ryhme, but should create some kind of imagery in the reader's head, so be creative!

An example Black Friday haiku would be:

people skipping lines (5 syllables)
crashing carts into others (7 syllables)
glad i stay at home (5 syllables)


Limit one entry per member (although you can post as many haikus as you'd like). Entries will be accepted until 9pm ET on Sunday night. At that point I'll randomly choose 5 entries and those members will receive Black Friday t-shirts!

Good luck to all!

LOL, I see some people are searching the forum for "haiku", maybe looking for past year's threads to copy from. Those threads have been hidden though, so save your time :P
