Awesome Burger Haikus: We Have Some Winnahs!
Turns out we had one extra book sitting around for the Hamburger America Burger Haiku Giveaway. So we have six winners instead of five! They are, in no particular order:
dark brown salty crust
right amount of pink inside
sizzle juicy drip
The judges say: A perfect portrait of the perfect burger.
You once were a cow
Now you are a burger
Tasty little cow
The judges say: Fun and wickedly dark—from the cow's standpoint. If haikus had titles, this one's would be "Bwahahahah."
this is Mc Nuggets
i said i want a Big Mac
fix your intercom
The judges say: We've all been there, man. Amen.
Fresh from the butcher,
When almost rare, good moist beef,
Seasoned, stands alone
The judges say: Right on. The best burgers need little more than seasoning.
Pastures of cows & steer
Fields of golden wheat
A Burger is Born
The judges say: Simply beautiful. Captures not only the spirit of burgers but the spirit of America at its best, as well.
Behind me, sizzle and smoke --
I can see burgers
The judges say: Evocative of Memorial Day and summer weekends in general.
Thanks to everyone who entered. And it is clear we will have to hold a burger limerick contest soon!
