Gnarls Barkley `Crazy' For Haiku

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Call them crazy, but funky- pop group Gnarls Barkley is holding a haiku contest for fans.

Haiku, which is a Japanese form of poetry that uses a pattern of syllables in each line – five, seven, five – also uses references from nature, so the duo has picked the words “solitude” and “pineapple” to incorporate into the poems.

Some recent entries include Some doctors may say/ That a pineapple a day/ Keeps the hemlock away and this ditty Lonesome pineapple/ How much faster do you roll/ When you roll alone.

Winners will receive three Gnarls Barkley lithographs and “bragging rights” when they are announced Sunday (Feb. 11) – the same day the duo is scheduled to preform at the Grammy Awards.
