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 suddenly realized I can't count. The first line of my previously submitted Haiku had 6 syllables - so here is the revised form

My purse all jumbled
Where GPS is required
to find my Storms site

Yes i am In my second year of Japanese at my High School, and thought i mite do it in English and Japanese! [The Subject says "My Haiku"]

where my Phone?
Shit. It is ringing!
Gonna miss the call.

携帯電話は どこ いうてんねん ですか。
いいやがって。 携帯電話が鳴っているよ。
イム行くの電話に電話を逃す。

Now that I am signed in and can be verified let me try again..

My Blackberry Storm
Lives by the seaside
WHERE it awaits a soulmate

Some Haikus don't make
sense. My blackberry is stitched
to my hand. Oh scat.

*******************************************

Oh WHERE is my phone
WHERE is my blackberry, in
my hand. iphone sucks

*******************************************

my girlfriend wont touch
my berry, on the toilet
with me, it has been

*******************************************

from the toilet bowl
you come out, wet but working
still my love you are

*******************************************

Embraced like a love
WHERE illuminating light
has shown me the way

It functions all day
Though I'm not; kept distracted
It keeps me CRACK'd out!

Smart, choice decision
Smartphone precision; WHERE none
Sits above the RIM.

I poke on my screen hard...
I poke on my screen harder...
I realize the harsh reality
WHERE did RIM go wrong

On my kichen counter
in pieces
is my blackberry
sad
as I
dropped
the dirty trackball
down
the kitchen
sink

Sitting on my desk,
Blackberry Storm charging up,
Halfway done right now........

PICK ME!!! PICK ME!!! PICK ME!!!

Blackberry Haiku?
There is a Storm coming soon!
Where oh Where is it?

Where is my new Storm?
If only my phone would ring
I could find it then

We're together now
My Blackberry Storm and I
Where do you keep yours?

Always close at hand
Whether at sea or on land
Right Where I need it

It's in Chanhassen
Minnesota, you betcha
Where else would it be?

Where do I keep it?
Wherever I am it is
Google Maps knows too

It's no secret Where
My smartphone is always there
In my hand mostly

Oh WHERE did you go?
My always connected friend
Wait, you are on me...

;-)

Here's another one:

Always on my hip
WHERE a message revives it
My BlackBerry Bold

It sits on my hip
In a black Seidio clip
WHERE I can reach it

But when in the john
I can hold it with one hand
While the other one....

WHERE is my BB?

In my bed,
permanently attached to my right hand,
Under my pillow.
Vibrating every 10 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHERE it always is
At my side never apart
till death do us part

BlackBerry and me
At home or when on the go
Always together

And the best thing is
I can remain in contact
or not...It's my choice

Now never you fear,
For at my hip or my ear,
My Bold is right here!

OR

Twenty four seven,
The world at my fingertips,
I'm in Bold heaven!

OR

My brand new Bold waits,
Calling me. Just out of reach,
In a store window.

LEDs flashing,
Send CrackBerrians dashing
Bold always in reach!

OR

Stranger than fiction,
Our Blackberry addiction!
Can't put my Bold down!

nice haiku. a bit painful since I actually just did that to a digital camera last week - sat on a rock and cracked the lcd.

My dress - no pockets.
But must carry Blackberry!!
Behind back - on air!!

Background:
Gossip columnist and Entertainment Tonight red carpet reporter Lainey stood awkwardly with one hand behind her back every time she was on air. She later revealed that she was holding her Blackberry and blogging between on air shots. Now THAT's dedication...

Greetings, Andy

it's placed right to my heart
covered by my shirts pocket

ever i have the ring heard
it jumped out like a rocket

standing in portrait-modus
in front of my desk
showing my pet in a diashow
to make me laugh all the time
during work

I require my cash
I want it right here in my
Hand, or that's your ass

I require my bread
If I don't get it
I'ma bust you in your head

-raiderleaf

Okay, so a lot of people are going to read this and think that I am a freak, but I just wanted to make people laugh with my entry. Here goes:

Late night last night,
Kinky sex and lots of lube,
May be up my ass.

Hahaha! Hope that at very least gets me an honorable mention!

There is no question where my BB is! Always with me of course!
Right now I am looking at it. It's comfortably resting under my computer flatscreen in my office.

Opppps...incoming message! gotta go!

Where oh where is it
How did I lose the damn thing
Blackberry come home

Sadly I sit here
I have to sit here and wait
I am very bored

Found out she took it
That crazy girlfriend of mine
Turns out she needed gas

She plotted with GPS
Using that new app of mine
Wish she would hurry

Come Home Blackberry
The Where App is a Devil
NextTime 2 for 1

Had to see the fish
Dreamt of being Jacque Costeau
Forgot Waterwings.

*Lost my Storm in Charleston after one week because it fell out of my hand while trying to take a picture of dolphins. All I could do was laugh because I swore I wasn't going to drop it. What can you say....it happens.

Just received a call
Where is my phone? Can't find it.
Can't see it at all.

Is it under there?
I made you say underWHERE.
Laugh with me damn it!

Or else I will cry.
Can't live with out my Berry!
I don't want to try!

I would like a Storm
But money is hard to find
Can't afford one now.

I wish I had Where
I would find a local bar
and drown my pain there.

At my finger tips, therefore I roam
Crackberry, when I’m away from home
Because I’m internationally known
On my Blackberry phone

Where Is It U Ask?
Kicking iPhone's Pretty Ass
Apple Take a Step Back!

HAHA That One Is for Sergeant Mac and His Beloved iPhone :)

Up Against My heart
Eager to fulfillits tasks
Hiding from I-fart

With Where to find friends
Ready willing and able
Run Cupertino

WHERE else could it be
in the hands of an addict,
never sits idle.

--went for honesty over comedy! thanks for the opportunity.

On my desk charged and ready to go
Set to Vibrate waiting for a call
It Vibrates when you use it
"thats what she said"

My tombstone wil read
He love his storm more than me
signed bitter wife

WHERE is my berry
WHERE, it is always with me
Even when I'm dead
