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?

Haiku Contest! Win a BlackBerry Courtesy of Where and CB



Oh what shall I do
And put into my Haiku
To be with the few

To have and to hold
A brand new blackberry bold
Just say WHERE I'm told

We'll I don't know WHERE
It will move from here to there
Up and down the stairs

Hopefully at last
It will end up in the trash
When I win the cash!

i already own a storm but i have a friend who just can't afford one so why not i just give it to him and since its free is much better.Thanx for all

once i kissed a frog
and got nothing
but a toothfairy
still awaiting
for my prince
in shining armour
could thee be?
could thee be

On a computer desk
sitting under heaps of mess
lays a blackberry

it flips open but
i desire sexy curves
just not backorder!

Where is my BB?
all alone in a warehouse,
waiting to be won.

(in other words, I haven't had my first black berry yet but I want one really bad! So please?)

Mine's is currently sat beside me in which is hasn't been any further than 2 feet away from me since I got it.

It must be the best purchase I've made this year so far. I just need to get myself a carkit and protective case for it so it doesn't get damaged.

What is Blackberry?
A companion in pocket.
Very addictive!

What is Where to me?
Application for local
searches and events

Blackberry is crack;
a little is not enough,
must use all the time!

(i do not require crack all the time :) )

If we can only enter once my last is my entry!


Keyboard lock engaged,
Addiction has subsided.
Waiting to vibrate.
Sitting here awhile,
A.T.M. cannot help me.
WHERE is my owner?
Silence of a phone,
Sunk to the bottom of a
Public restroom sink.
Car keys make good friends
WHERE light ceases to exist -
Inside worn-out jeans.
I can hear it ring
Don't know WHERE I set it down.
On top of the fridge?!

I called for her name
but heard crickets down the hall
where oh where is she

suddenly i had
an epiphany and ran
voila- still in bed

This is my Storm, there
are many like it, but this
Blackberry is mine.

My Blackberry is
my best friend. It is my life.
I must download Where.

My Storm without me
is useless. Without it and
Where, I am useless.

On a truck or plane
where could my blackberry be
off for repairs ohh!

I miss it so much
It's impossible to say
no berry today!

It has to come soon
oh whatever do I do
Just sit and wait grr!

I haven't wrote a haiku in a long time. Hope it is correct.

Not in my pockets
Not in my car nor the floor
Where’s my blackberry

Oh no, the dryer
Too late for me to save you
Goodbye my dear friend

Wow! this is gotta be one of the best ideas for a contest.

Violent Storm of Calls
Ended in sweet perfect calm
Placed safely on hip

My blackberry in
her hand, she stood with eyes that
tore through my very soul,
Oh why didn’t I learned
how to use the delete key
To save me the pain

Standing at my work
Hearing my blackberry ring
no where with in sight

Ring ring it bellows
Where could have I set it last
I need to check WHERE

My client waiting
for an important question
of where StarBucks is

Ring Ring then silence
The blinking red light shines bright
At last it is found

With a quick Scroll, Tap
WHERE shows up upon the screen
a quick search and BOOM

The local StarBucks
only a few blocks away
Thank you WHERE i'm Saved!

Sorry it is a bit long, but I figured I'd make a good one, and put my all into it.

my mighty storm is resting
silently asleep where leather runs through loops
ready for business or pleasure

QWERTY's addictive,
Sure beats T9 predictive,
Bold in hand, text sent.


Do not ignore me,
The red flashes implore me!
Bold always in reach!

Where O where is my Blackberry Smartphone?
Over there over there
Ring Ring
It is where ever you like
It is DIVA!!!!

Where O where is my Blackberry Smartphone?

Hidden in a teacher's desk,
Why did I use in class?

You are my only love?

Now you are cast aside like,

You are the Princess of all,
Even the IPhone!

Must have my berry

There's no other way

Berry on my hip

Where is a slick app!

Nestled in its case
the berry waits its next task

The highest quality leather
Keeps it very safe

Make love to me, please...

8 8 3 zero
Faithful friend in my pocket
True wifi will come

In the Land of Sprint
A new day is now dawning
Niagara is launched

She ask me why I love her
I draw a blank looking at my desk
WHERE my BB suddently blinked its LED
and I knew what I needed to say
She gave me a kiss
and happy went away
(If she only new I was not talking about her)

Berry is naked
Cold Alone Needs A Blanket
Cop wrote a ticket

Public exposure
Cop won’t give just a warning
WHERE is a berry skin?

WHERE BlackBerries Live.
WHERE life becomes organized.
WHERE I want to be.
WHERE oh WHERE is my
BlackBerry Storm oh WHERE oh
WHERE is it right now?
WHERE on my nightstand?
It wakes me from my slumber!
Find it there you will.
Lost my best friend.
BlackBerry WHERE are you now?
Oh in my pocket!

In the hospital
My BlackBerry addiction
Where I text like mad!

A code blue I call
Running, texting. Yes I can!
Why do they still die?

"WHERE is your Blackberry smartphone right now?"

WHERE is not my phone
WHERE is not my smartphone right
now where is my phone?

WHERE is the crack app
"Deep strong and penetrating"¹
just like Michaluk

My eyes are on WHERE
and when WHERE will find my crack
at CB...dot com!

I am on the can.
My Storm is in the left hand.
WHERE is my right hand?
Clicking on the screen.
What did you think I would say?
But now I must wipe.
Whats that? More email?
Maybe I can multitask.
I need a third hand.
And WHERE did this smudge come from?
From baking brownies!

Blackberry Winter
WHERE else but here deep down South
Blackberry Fall, on floor…

My Blackberry grows,
From an old USB vine,
Juicy as Housewives
