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?

This phone smells like pee.

Jealous puppy
-By Blake

Where have you gone love
I think my dachshund hid you
Thank god for jawbone

Some back story here. I couldn't find my storm for hours and it was on silent. i knew it was in my home and knew the general area. While i was looking for it i could answer and make calls thanks to my jawbone headset but my miniature dachshund Phil was chasing me around squeaking his little stuffed fox toy the whole time trying to get my attention. I found it underneath his pile of blankets. I don't have proof that he stole it, i didn't see him in the act. He seemed very adamant about distracting me from my search though.

My Berry is in in the original Bold case in the left pocket of my tee-shirt, it pulls my shirt down about 2 inches, makes me look like I have one large rectangler left breast, pulls mt shirt to the left moving my left sleeve below my elbow and the right one above my elbow and makes my neck stick out the right side of the shirt but I dont care, my Bold feels all warm and fuzzy while in there so thats where it lives.

Oh where, oh where has
my Blackberry gone, oh where,
oh where can she be?

Over yon, she waits
on the sill of the window,
waiting for a call.

Alone, there she sits
across the room because of
the lack of signal.

Was with my girlfriend
Looking for my Blackberry
Oh WHERE could it be
I called my smartphone
She started to twitch a lot
She was dripping wet

Blackberry in hand
WHERE my dingdong used to lay
With It I now play

Thumb Prints cover it
Instead of the Lubriderm
That Covered my Wang

No Longer Lonely
At my Desk Watching Porno
I have found true Love

WHERE you say,
sitting on my desk all day
battery charging
vibrating and red light flashing
wondering what to write
for a Haiku to a new
Blackberry from Crackberry.com today

Just downloaded Where
And it keeps telling me this:
"Nothing to do here."

But for the record
I live in Indiana;
The software is fine.

Words cannot express
I feel so passionatly
about crackberry :)

Ask to use my WHERE
And crackberry saves the day
It's always right here.

My friends joke on me
Without it I have withdrawls
If only they knew...

Its like a drug
It is an addiction
One I will not quit!

My beloved friend
You are not just a cell phone
But a way of life!

You need not ask me
Where is MY red crackberry
Its always in use,

It has been too long.
I must now bid you adu,
Crackberry calls me!!!

Sitting in my class
WHERE tells me the gas prices
Check Crackberry blogs

Into My Pocket
Victim of butt dialing
Must lock screen next time

WHERE is my 'Berry?
Wait, where the hell is my Curve?
Um, I'll be right back

I have found my Curve
Its battery is charging
To be drained once more.

Where, Oh Where, Oh Where
Has my nice Blackberry gone
Oh, it's in my butt
or
I can't search on Where
Because I can't find my Storm
Oh, sweet Irony
or
Crackberry.com
Is the greatest site ever
My phone's in my car
or
Seriously dude
I can't find my friggin phone
Can you please help me

Where Where Where Where Where
Where Where Where Where Where Where Where
Where Where Where Is Mine

Sheathed in black leather sleep
tethered beside my laptop
begging to be held.

Since I have bought this...
"Whoa, is that a black berry?"
is all I hear now.

Storm right by my side
There's noWHERE else it would be
Makes my life easy

Many think I look like David Schwimmer (and I did go to highschool with him). If I win I'll do a video for you!
