You thought this was gonna be one of those catch-22 contests WITHOUT a winner, didn’t you? Well, friends, you are wrong. We totally have a winner, and his name is Kevin Neil. Wanna hear his haiku? Here it go!Sub Pop has Sam BeamHe’s got a really cool beardAnd a banjo, too!There you have it. Succinct. To the point. And so, so deep.While I was secretly hoping to get a bunch of smart-ass haikus like the following, I did not:Hey, Sub Pop Losers!Gimme the haiku prize now.You all suck big balls.I wrote that, and if I could give myself the prize (a Sub Pop sampler & sticker pack), I would. Wait, I already have the prize. I digress.Congrats, Kevin!
