Contest: Grokku!

Posted By Mark Sisson On August 13, 2009 @ 8:35 am In Announcements | 228 Comments

The Prize:

Earlier this week US Wellness [7] donated a 5 gallon bucket of fat as a prize (you’re not too late to enter that contest [8] if you haven’t already). Today they’re giving away fresh, grass fed pemmican [9]. It’s the original Eskimo energy bar, and US Wellness is pretty much the only place on the web you can find it. You can make your own [10], but I’m betting you’ll like US Wellness’ pemmican better. The winner will receive 6 bars of each flavor, original [9], honey and cherry free [11], and salt free [12] (that’s 18 bars of meaty goodness). What do you have to do to win? Start counting your syllables…

The Contest:

It’s haiku time. To win the pemmican, leave a Primal Haiku – or “Grokku” – in the comments section of this post. What is a haiku? A haiku is a form of Japanese poetry containing 17 syllables. The haiku is broken down into 3 lines containing 5, 7, and 5 syllables (not words, syllables). They traditionally include a seasonal reference, though no need to be traditional to win. You’re good as long as you get the 5-7-5 thing right. If you’re still not sure what to do, check out these recession [13] and zombie [14] haiku.

Examples:

I hoisted a rock
Then ate a whole roast chicken
Slept like a baby

Chronic Cardio?
Sprinted, lifted, hiked instead.
Best shape of my life.

Chubby in Autumn
Went Primal in the Winter
Chiseled by Summer.

SlimFast, Jenny Craig,
Weight Watchers, and Healthy Choice
Can all kiss Grok’s @%#.

Eligibility:

This prize is only available to residents of the 48 contiguous states. [If you don’t live in the U.S. and you win I’ll ship you a bottle of my Master Formula [15] instead, and the fat will go to an alternate winner.]

The Contest End Time:

August 13th, midnight.

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

I’ll pick my favorite. That’s the winner. But I’ll also post the top 10 on the results page.
