THUPA Round 3 Pairings

The third round of the THird Ubersite Poetry ExtrAvaganza has brought to light a very important question:

What exactly is poetry?

One definition says "Poetry is an imaginative awareness of experience expressed through meaning, sound, and rhythmic language choices so as to evoke an emotional response. Poetry has been known to employ meter and rhyme, but this is by no means necessary. Poetry is an ancient form that has gone through numerous and drastic reinvention over time. The very nature of poetry as an authentic and individual mode of expression makes it nearly impossible to define."

Mrs. Dowling says "Poetry is difficult to define. More than any other type of writing it involves our feelings. It takes many forms and has many purposes."

Here is another definition of poetry: It is language that says more than ordinary language, and says it more intensely than ordinary language. It uses figures of speech. Each figure of speech suggests several meanings with only a few words. Poetry uses many words with strong connotations. These words appeal to the reader's emotions. The language of poetry is strong.

Ubersite's own Shlongy sums it up pretty succinctly:

"Poetry sucks."

All I know is that I am in no place to judge whether something like, "Merry Christmas, HO HO Rabbit!" is poetry or not. One could very easily argue that it is. Unfortunately Muddy, this means you will be moving onto round three. As for the rest of the field, most went uncontested. I had expected this, being the holiday season; and as it turns out I myself am actually on vacation right now, so I am sorry Scourge that I could not respond to your numerous inquiries with the promptness they deserve. I shall strive to do better from here on out.

Since Shadow and Snagglepuss have identical ratings, I switched Muddy with Snagglepuss to avoid an immediate rematch. Below are your matches for the big quarterfinal round. I expect some fantastic work! Good luck and happy lyricising! (Is that a word? It should be.)

Um, what was that deadline? I can't seem to find it. Probably because I should stop drinking for a day or two.

Happy Friggin New Year.

well, i guess you could say he is better at poetry than fiction, bubba. you can pass off all the 'elebentybillion' grammatical and typographical errors that his writing is usually littered with as 'poetic license.'

right?

Damn right I am. So far I haven't had to change the rules or cheat, however those possibilities are still very very real.

I'll be there in 10 or 20 minutes. Sweet. I thought I was going to be bored, as the wife has a migraine, and even if she didn't, she would still ignore me, because that's how she is. I think I give her migraines. I'm making seafood chowder tomorrow.

tomorrow morning is hoppin' john with bloody marys. i make the best hoppin' john in the fucking world. best bloody marys, too.

Jager - Guinness

Jager - Pilsner Urquell

Bourbon - Guinness
or
or Bourbon - Pilsner Urquell?

This is my dilemma. Jager-Guinness would likely make my poop black, which is always fun. I don't know. I'll come up with something. In any case, I'm staying in on amateur night. Happy New Year, Sally.

You were lucky to get one poem out of me. "Lucky" being a subjective interpretation that you are free to modify or change completely.

By the way, I finally tried watching the 12th Night thing. I made it through 20 minutes (barely); then, I opted for a satisfying poop and Family Guy reruns.

If this had been placed more in the........late summer, say, I probably would have had the time to fully participate more. The holiday season is a horrible time for contests, becuase people are stressed out already, and time is ALWAYS in short supply.

I propose another similar poetry style competition in that time of year.

My "quote" is obviously the best part of this post.
