Cointest across the globe


Recommended Posts

Well, I had time after dinner and before Scouts to get all the coins together.



And we even had a bunch of fun drawing coins! BionicleMan would do a little coin dance after each drawing. :lol:



All the winners here should send me a note via my profile with their mailing address.


Whew! What a rush! And with no further ado, I'm happy to announce the winners:


#1 5:33pm SC Micro - Satin Gold

What a grat idea for a cointest and thank you for your overwhelming generosity! Good luck everybody!


#2 6:28pm Crake Swallowtail Butterfly

Thanks for the cointest, Fingers Crossed for actually winning one of them! :laughing:


Here's a Haiku I shamelessly plagiarised from here.


I thought it quite appropiate being 'coin' inspired!


Haiku rides again!

Nice to have you back, poem

Been bored without you


I don't use coinStar

I save my change in a sock

To bludgeon people


Coins jingle-jangle

Like windchimes in my pocket

I'd rather have cash


Coins minted in Rome

Cannot be used to purchase

A goddamn thing here


Wayne Coyne is famous

For his musical antics

With the Flaming Lips


You can coin a phrase

Or you can earn some phat coin

Jokes can be coin-y


A coin collecter

Probably is a huge dork

Just think about it

#3 7:23pm Mt Rushmore Benchmark

waking from the sleep

Dreaming of big shiny coins

waiting for Santa Claus

A Christmas Joke-


A guy bought his wife a beautiful diamond ring for Christmas.


After hearing about this extravagant gift, a friend of his said, "I thought she wanted one of those sporty four-wheel-drive vehicles."


"She did," he replied. "But where was I going to find a fake Jeep?"

#25 & 26 & 27 - Favorite Original Verse(s):

Crake Symbology Ant. Gold

I had a very very unhappy evening; I wrote this haiku to explain it:


UPS lost it

my Christmas gifts are not here

delivered elsewhere


GW5 Attendee

rusty ammo can

painted shades of forest green

snow upon its lid


Lady Luck Red-head / Black Nickel

Yet another hour gone

Like a child on Christmas eve

Exciting cointest
