A SECOND BLACKBERRY SMARTPHONE IS NOW UP FOR GRABS!!!

Vote for the BlackBerry Haiku Contest People's Choice Award!

So here's the deal. Yesterday we posted the ten finalists to the WHERE.com BlackBerry Haiku Contest and opened it up to the community to vote for their favorites. But with almost 1900 BlackBerry Haiku entries submitted, it was inevitable that some of you would have favorites outside the top ten picked by the WHERE team. So to that end, WHERE is giving away a SECOND BlackBerry smartphone to one lucky winner in the form of the PEOPLE's CHOICE Award! Here's a quick note from the WHERE team:

Was your favorite BlackBerry Haiku left out of the Top 10? Good news! Now you, the people of CrackBerry, will have the opportunity to write in your choice for the best BlackBerry haiku. WHERE has agreed to give away another device to the winner of the CrackBerry People's Choice Award. There are close to 1900 haikus to choose from.....get reading....  

BlackBerry Haiku Contest People's Choice Award Voting Instructions 

Step 1 - Visit the original BlackBerry Haiku Contest thread >>

Step 2 - Browse through the pages and pages of entries and choose your favorite. Also, as this People's Choice votes start to come in, you can just browse through the votes here and re-paste if one of the already-voted for ones meets your fancy.

Step 3 - Copy and Paste your Favorite Entry back into the comments section of this thread. Include the original Haiku poster's username. Make sure you are logged into CrackBerry.com. Only one vote per member will be counted.

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!

Well I guess I will vote for myself since (1) everyone else is going to and (2) nobody is ever going to read through 1900+ posts just to give someone else a Blackberry (WHERE didn't even do it =P)...

Others like Apple.
They sneer at my RIM. I just,
cut, paste then I grin.

Lunch sent me rushing,
Bold slips in as I'm flushing!
Who knew it would float?

Oh it's so clever!
With Blackberry I tether!
Porno WHEREever!

LEDs flashing
Send CrackBerrians dashing
Bold always in reach!

Back made of leather,
Can call, email and tether,
With me WHEREver!

Haiku Contest! Win a BlackBerry Courtesy of Where and CB
By: hal9000 | Date: Fri, 03/06/2009 - 21:30 | edit reply
Not so much as Where
From reading all the Haikus
But as to Where not?

Great contest BTW!! ^_^

I don't mean to offer up any criticism, this is a very generous contest, however, it must be said that originally we were to pick from a selected list chosen by WHERE. That being said I like almost everyone else who submitted an entry will choose their own submission. So by default the winner who convinces the most of his/her friends to register and vote will win a free phone.... Kind've kills the spirit of the contest...
Apologies for the long post.

Yep, as I had implied in my previous post earlier...

But to be fair to WHERE, this is to win the SECOND phone, so the original spirit of the contest is still retained.

I, for one, would love to learn how far people would go to get friends and perhaps strangers to vote, if that's allowed to be disclosed without negative implications to the winner. Free pizza slice, anyone?

Under arched phenomenon

I cant believe they didn't pick this
It's in a pot of Gold under a rainbow!!!

Un-der arched phe-nom-en-on (7)
Where the sun shines rain (5)
Four Leaf clo-vers (4)

I can't believe so many people on this board have a hard time making a simple haiku with the proper format.

IMO, this 2nd part of the contest is doomed to people who are voting for themselves and their friends. I'll post these up (my original entries) for people who didnt get to page 20 in the original post.
Have fun reading :)

Got laid off today
I need a really stiff drink.

WHERE's my Blackberry?
By: APeters | Date: Thu, 03/05/2009 - 19:55 |

Oh WHERE oh WHERE could
my Blackberry be? I know
its right next to me!

So, I've decided to save everyone the trouble of reading through 2000 entries and, instead, everyone should just copy and paste this haiku.

WARNING!!! Shameless self-promotion in 3...2...1

Through my blood it flows
BlackBerry is my choice drug

~jal129

"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!

¹Crackberry.com Podcast: Episode 031

I have to admit to some disappointment when I didn't see my haiku in the top 10. I put some love into it. I enjoyed the play on words referencing the topic question in the first stanza, and I thought the Crackberry Podcast/Michaluk reference was cleverly funny when used to described WHERE in the second.(Plus, I thought the footnote looked sexy.) Even the pause between "CB" and "dot" referencing the podcast soundbite rolled off my tongue with enjoyment in the 3rd stanza.

Anyway, thank you, WHERE! This was a great contest and I enjoyed writing the poem. Though the prize was/is grand, I at least hoped my Haiku would entertain a few here, so I'll be super lame and post mine like everyone seems to be doing! Keep on Crack'n!

i liked this one too

i would ask you to vote for me but I didnt read this post until after the contest was over but if theres a write in spot go ahead and throw me in there lol but my vote i guess will go to jal129

WHERE is My Blackberry?
Well, mine is in despair wrapped a towel with care
For it fell in water right from the air
Now I need a phone Crackberry

My phone is dead and here I weep in bed
I hope for a flip but hopefully it won't take a dip
Thanks Crackberry!

I like contests. I like to win.

But I think peoples approach to this 2nd chance by WHERE is totally lame. Voting for yourself seems classless to me. Since this 2nd chance is already doomed, I just came here to vent - not vote.

Shame on most of you.

I sincerely applaud WHERE's generosity in offering up a second BlackBerry prize in response to the criticism that the best 10 haiku were not chosen for the final vote.

But I am seriously disappointed in the number of people who simply chose to vote for their own entry. I don't see how this can result in a proper winner with that being the case.

And to those who think haiku should have multiple verses/stanzas, a huge WTF??

WHERE?!

Really, WHERE are you?

at least 8-10 people who followed the wrong format including finalist number 8 of the original contest
Finalist #8

my faithful companion awaits
WHERE, helps me find mates – Imgir

yea i noticed that to. i dont know what where was thinking. but then i noticed the second contest and i think thats a little better. then i looked through the posts and found this one and i started rolling. but none of the finalists didnt even make me chuckle.

yea the one u chose is hilarious but its wrong they couldve done better wit word play.
blackberry o blackberry = 7 syllables its supposed to be 5,7,5 grr...

blackberry isnt 3 its 2. i checked just in case because i wasnt sure either. but i used a syllable calculator for it and then when it said 2 i decided to vote for it :) if it was 3 i wouldve left it go definitly. go and vote for it with me.

nothin its just wierd. i just checked it too. i swear its 3. Black-Be-rry no? thats crazy lol. well theres a winner lmao

According to Dictionary.com the work Blackberry is 3 syllables

black⋅ber⋅ry Show Spelled Pronunciation [blak-ber-ee, -buh-ree]

well i think it might depend on how you say it. its confusing. lol but my vote i think is for berryaddict1022. i like theirs. i didnt like the beginning then when they were like really where is it. that had me dying.lmao

Blackberry seems like three syllables. I guess it could be 2 if you say it fast as heck. But I'd say it's three oh well.

Apparently no one who's voting for this knows what a haiku is. 7-8-5 is not a haiku. So even if you get every single one of your friends or create a million fake accounts to vote for yourself...you can't win if it's not a haiku. At least I hope not because then there will be a mutiny on Crackberry. No offense berryaddict1022 it's a nice poem, but you can't pimp out something that's not even a legit haiku.

well its actually a haiku bc if u use a word calc for the syllables for blackberry it says 2 so i put that in and then for the third line really is 2. it should be? lol so its a fine haiku and im excited that im getting votes. and if u dont think i should be getting votes bc im not going to be able to win with it then go and look at the top ten from the first contest one bc some of them arent haikus.

Tickles as she texts,

Wait! What is this breeze,
I hear her scream of "Oh S**t!"
Oh no, Crash! Ouch! Ouch!

The Nike kicks me!
Life flashes before my screen,
Scratches graze my skin,

Master tell me why?!
No lanyard? No case? No love?!
Crash! Tumble! Splat! Ouch!

I wonder if people (berryaddict1022 and a couple others) realize that if you vote for yourself multiple times from the same computer using different email accounts, that you can track the ip address of each submission, and see that they all came from the same computer. If this weren't possible and the site managers couldn't track this, don't you think others, like myself, would be voting multiples times for myself so that I (greatcasa) could win in the 10 finalist vote? By the way, I don't care what syllable counter you put "Blackberry" into and it told you it was 2 not 3 syllables, it's 3 (Black-ber-ry). One word (2 words put together), 3 syllables.

Yeah ur right. I was wondering how berryaddict1022 got so many votes even though its not the correct format and to tell u truth, its not that funny.

thats not nice. i thought theirs was funny in a kindof stupid way. lol and i voted bc it made me laugh. i guess it made others laugh as well. and if it really doesnt have the right format then i dont think it really mattered to where bc look at the top ten original people. not all of them have the right format.lol

This is really RIDICULOUS! People are having family, friends, etc, and alot/'MOST' are making up nicks!

If you search the nick it hasn't been used ANY. And if any do JUST to show us---NONE are in the past!

MOST aren't sticking to the original rules at all!!
(5-7-5 and 3 lines)

Oh Yeah!! For all you nuckle-heads out there..

BERRY IS TWO SYLLABLES!

Say it to yourself! slowly now....Ber-ry!

Plain as the nose on your stupid face!!

Funny you 'bbmac56, and 'mycurves66, are two of the ones
on this site that have 'never made any other comment'.

My best friend Richard wants me to have a new BB Curve 8900 so bad, he arranged this whole thing! My room mate/b.f.f. Melissa helped and we created this great video and had a blast. It's so funny. You really should check it out! :)

This will be interesting to see how they figure out who wins this one with all the people that are voting for themselves multiple times with different accounts. This contest makes the first one look more legit.

Yeah I agree with some posters on here that there definitely is something strange about people getting like 20 votes in a row with random nicknames that have just joined this site. What's really strange is all these rogue CrackBerry users all voted for a poem that's not a haiku...simply because people can't count anymore apparently. I hate to sound like a dick, but come on people. I know this is an awesome prize, but don't try to cheat to get it. That's ri-dic-u-lous *4 syllables*
I hope that Kevin checks for chea-ting *2 syllables* because it will save him and us a lot of grief *1 syllable. I don't care if people self-promote, but doing it over and over with fake names or thinking your gonna fool anyone by posting your haiku with the same name multiple times isn't gonna work...you would and should not win you a black-berr-y *3 SYLLABLES*!!!! Thanks for listening...I'm really a nice guy, just stop cheating. You know who you are...

I'm a smart phone fan and I like blackberry's & cb.com

I browse this site regularly but just signed up for an account to vote for richardam because he did a really good job on his haiku. All 9 3 lined brackets of the poem are 5,7,5. Him, Tara, and Melissa we're the only entrants who actually did a youtube video from what I see and it was funny and creative, so we are voting to support our friend who actually did a good job. You can't deny that! It's not cheating AT ALL!

If you want proof from all the "newly registered" entrants, they will provide it. mother's, grandparent's, sister's, and brother's, and cousin's can register and vote too!

I wouldn't call those three cheaters.

-DW

He did not do "a really good job on his haiku" because a haiku ONLY has 3 lines. Only 3. That's it. No more. So while he might have done a good job counting syllables, he did a lousy job counting lines. So it should still be invalidated.

richardam made a youtube video with his friends and promoted it to his family friends work colleagues and acquintances. when they didnt make the top ten the first time they were surprised. they really made a good video put effort into it and were funny and advertising where and crackberry. when the second chance came about we stepped in because as friends we believe it was better than the rest. its messed up that people are trying to taint what was suppose to be a fun and positive thing. im voting because it was the best and if i signed up for an account this weekend. too bad.

Please, do not make generalizations about my comments. If you got your brother, sister, mother, father to vote for you good job you're probably going to win (even if this should be a CrackBerry contest not a popularity and how many friends can I bug to vote for me contest.) I wasn't complaining about you specifically. But, there ARE people who are creating new accounts just to vote for themselves and that is just dumb and wrong. I said you know who you are...so if you're not that person...stop getting so defensive.

Since it's going to be pretty much impossible to determine a winner for this second contest (both accurately and fairly), I think maybe the two phones should go to the top 2 from the original contest ;)

As I see it:

- It's okay to post your own Haiku. If it's good, others will vote for it also. If it sucks or just isn't as good as others, you'll be the only one voting for it.

- Blackberry has 3 syllables. Black is one syllable, Berry is 2 syllables.

- A haiku has 3 lines with a 5-7-5 syllable count. Extra syllables per line and/or extra lines are not a haiku. Not following this format should disqualify those entries especially considering the rules stated that a haiku be written. It's not fare to those who played by the rules and had to limit their poems in size and syllable count.

- Using multiple nicknames and to help boost your total number of votes is cheating, but having friends, colleagues, family, etc. isn't cheating. Voting is open to the public and they count as voters. However, it does dilute the how the true Crackberry community feels.

- Perhaps a better method for selecting the 2nd winner is needed to avoid cheating, controversy, etc. Perhaps having the site owner/owners select a top ten this time, and then letting the public choose. It's only a suggestion.

Cheating, fake accounts
Extra lines and syllables
All for a BB?

note: I considered making the last line "All for a Blackb'rry?" to satirize berryaddict1022 (the guy who thinks black-ber-ry is 2 syllables), but then it technically wouldn't be a haiku. What do you think, which is better in the last line, BB or Blackb'rry?

P.S. I don't care about winning. I just like writing haikus :)

Cheating, fake accounts

My vote. Because it's a genuine haiku.

And in this case, very true. Can't knock that.
