Here's Who Won That Copy Of Klonoa

Klonoa sez, Better luck next time! Unless you're langdon_alger.
Last week I challenged you to write a Klonoa-themed haiku to win yourself a copy of the floppy-eared catsit's latest Wii adventure, Door to Phantomile. And write them you did. I guess.

After poring over every last entry, I decree the winner shall be langdon_alger, to whom one shiny new copy of the game shall be mailed. He (or she) won the day with this softly plaintive cry.

gentle breezes blow
tumbleweeds past my wii-mote
can this game change that?

I have to make a few honorable mentions here as well. These guys all went for the funny.


Haikus are easy
But they don't always make sense
Refrigerator.


I found a wind ring.
A magic bubble came out.
What was I smoking?


Ears won't stop flapping.
Riding dirty with a ring.
whoah two point five dee

Pulling no punches, this pair tells it like it is.


Oh, poor Nintendo.
Have a Wii? Get Klonoa.
What else? Pft. Beats me!


Ebay Klonoa
Was Just For Rich Namco Fans... 
Wii Brings Cheap Glory.

I felt these entries were especially true to the spirit of the medium.


Dib dib dib dib dib
The voices teach us nothing
Language barriers


I move back and forth,
My feet never go sideways,
I long to feel grass.

D-Pad to Select.
Horizontal Wii Remote,
Graphic Filter: Off.

Good old MattBodega keeps it topical.

Klonoa in games,
and 3D Realms in news?
1998!

Last but certainly not least, Shadow challenges the very memory of Homer with this epic.

It appears that you
can do more than one Haiku
So I made a bunch

He speaks English now
No more talking like Star Fox
Worst part of the game

Is Rorschachs journal
May 9. Saw new game today
Reminds of Tomba

They see me rollin'
This hat makes me gangster, yo!
Sonic aint got shit

War has now changed
When you kill to get higher
War becomes routine

popularity
leads to more intimacy
and so does this ring

I just found this ring
a blue thing came out of it
It was delicious

He is a menace
He grabs innocent people
and throws them at stuff

SIX I SAY!

SIIIIIIIIX!!!"
You have to say the question mark, but you say it relay quickly so it only lasts for one syllable.

Hey, WholeFnSnow.

Good job completely ripping off Threadless.

I did not enter, congratulations winner... you deserve the game.

#13 Posted by theMcNasty (741 posts) -

Yeah, my Wii doesn't even sit by the "big boy" consoles anymore.  I think my brother borrowed it.

#14 Posted by stephengotlost (703 posts) -

Chase324 deserves a copy too.

I am good ol' MattBodega! My passion and vision and fanatical love is finally paying off!
Now, if you excuse me, I have to see a certain Evan Brass about a certain van....

#24 Posted by imayellowfellow (558 posts) -

how was it possible for brad to pull a brad even in this context?

#26 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Grats.

#27 Posted by JackiJinx (3083 posts) -

GO HONOR!

Also, congrats winner and Kenzo287 for making me laugh.

#28 Posted by Crono (2620 posts) -

KommanderCevin beat me to it, but yeah, that Refrigerator haiku is definitely not original.

#29 Posted by Shadow (4965 posts) -

damn....but I gotta admit, the winner is good.

#30 Posted by WholeFunShow (342 posts) -

Guilty, but it's even better than that, I just reread the posts to see if I gave some inelegant  'not mine' disclaimer at the time, & my plagerism was fastposted! All 'Honour' goes to Slunks.

#31 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8610 posts) -

Very good job. I thought mine was fine, but the runner-ups here are all pretty funny or well-written.

#32 Posted by langdon_alger (45 posts) -

wooooo!  Now, how do I make that picture my new avatar, caption and all?

#33 Posted by Cerza (1653 posts) -

Congrats to the winner. That haiku is so true...

Well at least I got a shout out.

Looks like becoming an English major wasn't a super bad decision

#36 Posted by SpencerBoltz (83 posts) -

Lisa Simpson's first crush won, awesome

#41 Posted by langdon_alger (45 posts) -

#42 Posted by Kyle (2323 posts) -

Haha Matt Bodega's was totally the best.

#43 Posted by Relys (984 posts) -

Ah, he totally deserved it.

#44 Posted by TDot (232 posts) -

I'd just like to point out that WholeFnShow stole his. In Fact I've seen it on the internet and on t-shirts.

Unfortunately no, it won't change that. The Wii will still have no games.
