BlackBerry Haiku Contest!

Look at that! CrackBerry contest week is barely over and we're bringing you another chance to win a BlackBerry smartphone! And this time it's not luck that will win your BlackBerry of choice, it's your creativity and talent. Full details from our friends at Where after the break ...

BlackBerry Haiku Contest

In honor of the WHERE mobile application launching on the BlackBerry Storm smartphone, WHERE has partnered with CrackBerry.com to give away a free BlackBerry smartphone to one of its readers.

I know what you are thinking: free BlackBerry smartphone! Where do I sign up? The contest rules are easy. In haiku form, answer the question: WHERE is your BlackBerry smartphone right now? Leave it in the comments section of this post either in text or link to a YouTube video.

Top 10 haikus will be chosen by the WHERE team on March 10th. Then it's up to you, CrackBerry community, to vote for the winner. The winner will be notified via email on March 16th and will have a choice of a BlackBerry smartphone or Gift Card towards the BlackBerry store, value up to $400.

Example Haikus: WHERE is your BlackBerry smartphone Right Now? Here are a couple of examples to get you started:

Nestled in a warm
Place, my BlackBerry smartphone
Waits for a loud ring

In my pocketbook
Probably at the bottom
Under my lipstick

How to Score Additional Points:
1. Standard Haiku format is 3 lines of 5,7,5 syllables. Please adhere to this format, or your entry may be disqualified. Prime Numbers Rule!
2. Get an A or B list celebrity to read your Haiku on video and automatically Win! Note, Gary Coleman does not count as an A or B list celebrity but will be admitted under the condition that he reads your haiku AND says, "Whatcha talking about Willis"
3. Mention WHERE in your Haiku and automatically get a brownie point
4. How are we determining the top 10? The ones that make us laugh the hardest. Simple enough, right?

I hear my Storms ring
But cannot locate its form
WHERE are you my love

I searched in the couch
I searched all through the whole house
WHERE are you my love

Finally I remember
I had you in the kitchen
Frozen I found you

Blackberry missing.
Now, how to find it? I know...
I'll use Where (dot) com.

or

Tummy is rumbling.
How to find dinner? I know...
I'll use Where (dot) com.

Underneath my legs
Vibrating on my ball sack
Stimulating me

God i love this device! What a multi-tasker.

Oh Blackberry Oh Blackberry, Where are you?
Nobody loves me the way you do
I am sitting here waiting for you

Ring Ring for me
You are the only one and only
That remembers every thing i say with your micro SD

Oh Blackberry Oh Blackberry, Where are you?
Nobody loves me the way you do
I am sitting here waiting for you

Vibrate Vibrate for me
You are the only one and only
When you blink at me you always have something to tell me

Oh Blackberry Oh Blackberry, Where are you?
Nobody loves me the way you do
I am sitting here waiting for you

Vibrating alert
Scramble quickly for my Storm
Where the hell is it.

If John Ashton (Beverly Hills Cop) is in town I'll ask him to do a dramatic reading for youtube.

On my workplace desk,
Productivity is down,
While I PIN my friends.

I was going to get one of my celebrity friends to read it, but then I forgot, I'm a nobody, with no celebrity friends.

Standard Haiku format is 3 lines of 5,7,5 syllables.

It's amazing how many people A: don;t remember how to write Haiku.

B: Don't know how to follow Written Directions.

Oh, no, where are you?
In couch? In car? Under bed?
BlackBerry, don't hide!

(May I say that some of the entries are really great and actually made me laugh out loud and then cry that my chances are so slim. And others are so unclear on the concept, or the concept of following instructions, that they made me laugh out loud too!)

my blackberry is never very far from me.
always at my disposal.
whenever i need something it is right there!

I have had my Storm
Surgically attached to
my left hand for use.

Makes typing in the prayer position difficult but I never misplace it :)

I'm gonna try and get Jim Rome to read this on his radio show in stead of a video because he loves Blackberry.

My Blackberry is gone
I feel like I have lost my child
Give me back my son

Oh WHERE, Oh WHERE, Oh
WHERE could it be, sitting here
just waiting on me...
flashing, buzzing loud
alarm going crazy, DAMN,
DISMISS ALREADY!!!!

Where is my 'berry?
Is it on the couch with you?
Is it at the zoo?

Is it in the 'loo?
No! I have checked there too!
Who knew? Call the crew!

I am feeling blue.
Give it up you big fat cow!
I need it right now!

I lost it, I fear.
What? You have not seen it here?
Oy, I need a beer.

If only I had
A GPS tracker like
WHERE, I would know

The best place to go!
Uh, sorry for the big show.
I thought you should know.

My 'berry is found.
It has been right here on me
This whole time, I see

Will you forgive me?
I sleep on the couch. I see.
I am so sorry!

You are not a cow!
I will make it up somehow!
A gift I will buy.

At least let me try.
I know what I will get her!
Her own blackberry!

I will get this done.
I can try to win her one!
It is worth a shot...

Where is it, my phone
The sink next to the toilet
As I do my thing.

Where is it, my phone
In my pocket, vibrating
Exhilarating!

Where oh where could my
Little Storm be? Where oh where could
It be? Desk a mess!

Four Brownie points please

Little = 2
Storm = 1
Be = 1
Where = 1
Oh = 1
Where = 1
Could = 1

Total = 8 not 7

sorry but it looks like you fail and get no brownie points

Sound and light is here
Email, in my hands to read
Work is here again

A life never had
For you are always with me
Job, I do hate you.

My Storm shows no fear
where others must tread softly
works hard and plays nice

-SchonLtd

While late night grows on
my storm keeps the dark at bay
bring on the day light

-SchonLtd

It's both here and there
And I can reach every where
It stays in my hand

*****
Did I mention I know Gary Coleman?
...wonder if he's in a good mood this week... probably not.;)

That BB's not mine!!!
It's where the sun doesn't shine
I hope he used lube!

****
I can provide radiographical evidence if you like...

By My Side Always
Like A Gun In It's Holster
WHERE it's quick to reach

Awaiting A Ring
Going off like a gun, So
Be quick or be dead

my blackberry is
currently missing, so sad
how can i go on?

maybe an iphone?
HERESY! bought a new storm.
now i can smile.

By My Side Always
Like A Gun In It's Holster
WHERE it's quick to reach

Awaiting A Ring

I take my Haikus very seriousssly, seriousssly.

Connected:
Where I am, unknown
Verizon’s Network I roam
Apples, dethroned

Fruit:
Where I am, unknown
Verizon’s Network I roam
What I’m not; Fruity Phone

Storms Air:
I am here or there
Unlocked, I may be anywhere
I am storms fresh air

App Me:
This button I push
Where I am I sure know not
With Maps, find the spot

Factory:
Soldering heat, neat
I am soon to be complete
Gifted to Main street

Applesauce:
In a gun, bullet
I fly, a precision storm
Apples exploding

Man, I haven't written a haiku since 3rd grade. (I still remember Ms. Volpe too.)

I'll try after work.

At the Crackberry HQ
Address it to me :)
