    Good luck to you. I hope you win, but I can't vote for you. Not that yours isn't good enough, but I just feel like Where didn't really go through the posts to find the very best ones. So I can't vote. But congratz on getting picked, and I really do hope you win. At least you seem very excited, I haven't seen any of the other 9 people posting here like you are. So you should win just for your enthusiasm.
    thanks, I have hope but I doubt I'll win DAMN YOU #2!!!! lol

    I was pretty sure mine wouldn't make the cut, so no problem there.

    But what I did not expect, and what is definitely disappointing, is that none of the ones that I thought were really laugh-out-loud funny and creative made the cut either.

    You must have smoked some good stuff if you think they are all funny. the only one that is creative is #2 and its not even that funny.

    I'll try to be more positive than most of the posts here. #3 got a pretty big laugh for me, and #2 got a slightly smaller one.

    The dog ate my storm is my least favorite of these, but it's going to win apparently.

    We SHOULD do a CB internal version... I'm still trying to get my friend to get Gary Coleman to read mine...

    Good Evening CrackComm (CrackBerry Community)

    I have to agree with the many comments about the quality of the final 10, and mine was one of those selected. However, that does not diminish my need for a new phone so here is my shameless plea for your vote:

    Please vote for #5 from bbaulier

    If you are reluctant to vote for #5, or any of those selected, because you think they're lame, please consider the rest of my haiku body of work and helping a poor boy out:

    Twenty dollar deal.

    Pretty face. Berry dropping

    Along with my pants
    “C” batteries dead

    Girlfriend inserts my Blackberry

    I must call myself
    Painful ringing noise

    The nightstand starts to vibrate

    Berry smashed on floor
    Man’s best friend – yeah sure!

    My dog ate my Blackberry

    It’s time to neuter
    In the mood for Thai?

    Living in the redneck south?

    Ask Where on Berry
    Sitting on the throne

    Waiting. Playing Sudoku

    Sweet relief. Thank God
    Jammed in my pocket

    Quietly reminding me

    Of things yet to do

    I also agree - some pretty sorry finalists. No reason to vote cause none deserve to win.

    [**** U CRACKBERRY
    Your contest are a big farse
    You must be real high

    As for the guy with a girlfriend waiting for a ring, shes a tank *** anyway.
    Like Frank Sinatra, I bent her over, and did her my way

    Crackberry you really suck if these are the finalist. So **** yoonz and the horse you road in on. Just as well cause I think the iPhone still has these blackberrys beat hands down. I'd switch but for the most part, its reception on a phone call that really matters. Heres a contest for you to run,
    How many different ways can people tell you how to shove these phoney contests up you a$$

    I must say that I'm a little upset with the top 10. The purpose of the contest was to explain where your blackberry is right now, using the standard format of 5 - 7 - 5, and making it funny. Now I am not a sore loser, but i would like to address why I think Where should have voted for other people instead of this top 10.

    Lets start things off with #2
    While it is very clever and funny, it was a lie; We all know that his dog didn't eat his blackberry.

    Moving down the list lets look at #4
    Just because it mentions that is hot doesn't mean that they should have been in the top 10. No where in the haiku does it mention where the blackberry is.

    Now lets look at #7
    Well lets start off with along with #4 it does not mention where the blackberry is, not to mention it doesn't even mention WHERE in it at all.

    Finally we reach #8
    Now this might be the biggest fault of all.
    A |ttached |to |my |hip =5
    my |faith |ful |com |pan |ion |a |waits =8
    WHERE, |helps |me |find |mates =5

    I think this contest while it was fun to join, was a load of crap. I guess if anyone us wanted to win, we should have posted this.

    Where Where Where Where Where
    Where Where Where Where Where Where Where
    Where Where Where Where Where

    p.s. i dont blame crackberry at all.
    I have a black lab, want a copy of my vet bill, The pearl was a snack, moved up to a bold, cause its bigger

    WHERE picked out all the finalists..... not involved in choosing the top ten.

    I did take a read through though... there were a lot of good ones in there. It's kind of like that What Would You do for a BlackBerry Storm Contest? we ran before... trying to narrow down hundreds/thousands of entries to just ten always makes for tough choices that the some of the community will like/dislike.

    Either way, congrats to all the finalists and good luck. Be sure to vote!
    Whos site is it, you suck for allowing that. You should have be more involved in the final 10. Go buy an iphone there apps are killer
