You know, some of those Haiku were so darn good I can't let them go unappreciated. So, while the grand prize of the tee-shirt goes to Nathan (the gods of randomness have spoken!), the runner-up prize shall go to the author of the best Haiku. I bet you didn't know there WAS a runner-up prize. Well honestly, neither did I, but that's the beauty of running your own blog -- I can do whatever I want on here! If I want to throw up a picture of a tortoise wearing a patriotic hat, I CAN:
If I want to put up a video of a fireworks blowing up at 2,000 frames per second, I CAN (make sure you see the M-80 in the tub of mayonnaise):
(In case you can't tell, I'm pretty psyched about the 4th of July)
So, without further ado, I've narrowed it down to my favorites. Please vote for YOUR favorite on the sidebar:

Go Carlos! Meanwhile
my clavicle breaks - and now
I'm all Exergy!
