Oh, Hamza Bullets, what can't they do? I know that they can help to pick out the winners of the Death Tank super 'shoop and haiku of death contest that recently ended.
Sadly, the Hamza Bullets didn't win. Not because they aren't awesome (which they are), but because there were entries that had just a little bit more of what I was looking for, and even some things I hadn't even thought of.
Leave it up to the D'toid community to take me literally and use fish tanks, dunk tanks, Left 4 Dead tanks, and even Thomas the Tank Engine tanks in their entries. Kudos to you, folks. Kudos to you.
So, which entries won the free Death Tank codes? Follow up after the jump to see if your entry was one of the winning ten. Also, since there were ten codes to give away, I split it up into the top five haiku, and the top five pictures.
These were judged by how much they made me laugh, inventiveness, creativity, and whether or not the entry followed the rules (mostly me laughing, though).
But, seriously, some of you may want to look up the definition of haiku. Just saying.
Now, for no apparent reason whatsoever, the haiku winners go first!
Sup3rt3d: Star Wars is always good.
Oh Luke Skywalker
So near Death on Hoth but saved
By the Bacta Tank
hoodoo: Def Leppard reference!
Death becomes a game
As the tank rolls closer still
kittwalker: Wtf is a BBC Micro?
portastad: Death Becomes Her was terrible.
Death Becomes Her, yah
It was a box office tank
Straight to VHS
drfoongoggles: I had to look up the syllable count in "towards."
Death rolling toward me
In shape of big, bad-ass tank
I soil trousers
And now for the Photoshop winners!
Electro Lemon: What the fuck is this blue shit?!
Eques-Ardor: It's how he rolls.
the GAMEGOBLIN: Baby tank of death!
sirjester: Although you don't get the haiku thing, Bill and Ted's Death is win.
MechaMonkey: That fish is fucked!
Those are the winners, folks! Please don't be too upset if you didn't get one of the codes, it was hard enough deciding on the winners as it was. Special nod to Wedge's shark tank 'shoop ... I wish you had put Death in it, but them's the rules!
Email me at [email protected] to claim your prizes. Also, please use the same email you use to make your account, so we can verify that you are you. There some sneaky people on the Internet, and those bastards don't deserve the awesome of Death Tank.
Great job to everyone that entered!
