HHD Pencil Results!



“A stoner pencil drawing of a stoner pencil by Johnny Sweatpants.”

For such an embarrassingly lackluster haiku topic I actually laughed at almost every submission. Octo pretty much nailed me with this haiku:

Haiku topic? Hmmm
What's lying around my desk?
They'll never notice

In a way you’re all winners. But in another, more accurate way, 50 Page McGee is the winner for pitching a horror/comedy movie in series of 6 haikus.

he haunts grade school dreams
stabs from the menacing dark
the Pencil Killer!

no one knows his name
tall, skinny, dressed in yellow
stench of fresh sawdust

you're trapped in your seat
hands Elmer'ed to the desktop
grim sharpener sounds

he stabs at your hands
embedding his evil lead
snapped off at the tip

just before you die
of painful lead poisoning
you wake up, sweating

was it just a dream?
you look down at your left hand
wounds of sooty grey

Well played old chap!

By the way, I finally updated the HHD archives. I'm missing a couple but it's nearly complete.

The damn Peter Jackson of HHD drops another epic, and he wins. Surprise surprise.

(I loved that shit, actually. Brilliant as usual, sir.)

(I also can't believe that "nigger pencils" one of mine didn't cause more of a stir. I was kind of nervous about that one. Then I just said fuck it and hit Publish.)
