Weekly Tangent – Polar Bowler: 1st Frame Contest! – 4/22/13 [CLOSED]


Happy Monday!

Oxymoron, right? Nevertheless, one of you will have a Happy Monday next week.


I have a contest for you (well, for those of you who are over the age of 13) and the big prize is 25 WildCoins – now, that’s quite a few rentals or an Android game purchase!

All you have to do is write us a Polar Bowler:  1st Frame haiku in the comments below.  A few of us here at WildTangent will pick our favorite and the winner (who I will announce in next week’s Weekly Tangent) will receive a code for 25 WildCoins.

Awesome, no?

According to Dictionary.com a haiku is “[a poem] written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables…”

Here’s mine, for you:

Why wait, ‘Tangenter?

Five, Seven, Five syllables.

Don’t you want those Coins?

You have until noon (12:00 PM PDT) on Friday to submit.  It’s time to get your wordsmithing on, my friends!  Feel free to cheer on your favorites in the comments!



Recap:  You must be over the age of 13 to enter this contest and you have until 12:00 PM PDT on Friday, April 26th to post your best Polar Bowler:  1st Frame haiku in the comments below.  More than one entry per person is welcome!!  Remember, winning will be based on quality, not quantity.


P.S.  There may be a delay in comments appearing.  We are reviewing all the comments before they go live to cut down on spam.  So don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up right away!

    No fear of the pins.
    Chilled out, slidin’ down the lane.
    Rockin’ out the shades.

    Arctic foes beware
    On your knees you tremble so
    Leisure devastates.
