Here are the results from our 2011 food haiku contest.
We had so many good entries this year, our judges had a difficult time narrowing them down. As it was, we had a 3-way tie for second place, which I had to break. Thank you for all the submissions! The first prize winner will receive two tickets to Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation at Luxe Autohaus on May 2nd. “Taste of the Nation Portland will raise critical funds needed to support Share Our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger in Oregon and across the nation.”

Shared with family and friends
Saved me this hard year.

Hahahaha…those are funny!! Oh, wait…they’re not. Sorry. Very touching haiku year here at PFD, FD. I’d be hungry and eat but I’m getting all misty……
the sweet thoughts put forth
have rendered me not hungry
I like the winner. Use if colon puts it over the top!
Ya, not nearly as “interesting” as in past years…warm and fuzzy, but not much in the way of smiles… )-:]~ ~[:-(
Haikus with venom
are always much funnier
than this PG stuff.
Yeah, I would add something here, but, you know,
I’ve got nothing. Can of soup, couple of ‘married’ bottles of
catering wine. Twenty seven of last nights unforgivable passed appetizers and a zune soundtrack some homeless person gave in exchange for old salmon from the buffet for parasitic sufferers.
Did i say Married Wine? oh heck, that’s not only legal in the state of sidemeat, it encouraged…
