KAWS x The Standard Hotel Light Bulb Haiku Giveaway

We were blessed by The Standard last Thursday when they presented to us a set of KAWS’ lightbulbs to giveaway to a lucky reader. Our server however had other plans, and went down for a week. In that time, the lightbulbs sold out.  The awesome thing though is that we still have the lightbulbs to give away.  To make it interesting, you’re going to have to write a haiku to score the unopened, coveted set. In the comments, write a haiku (5,7,5) based around KAWS, The Standard, Lightbulbs, or just why this would make your life better. The contest will run until February 4th, 2011. After that, our favorite Haiku will be picked as the winner February 7th, 2011.  Enter as many times as you like but, please do not get slanderous. That’s just boring.

Here’s a sample:

The Standard and Kaws
After Thomas Edison
