People's choice awards
Because our opinion's not the only one that counts, we developed a
randomized voting booth
to collect data on which couplets our users like best. We used this data to
continually rerank the submissions by popularity
. Based on the voting data received as of 12:00pm EST on Valentine's Day, the following six poems are the People's Choice winners of the 2003 Valentine Slam:
I long for you both night and day
To pack your bags and go away!
124 wins, 54 losses.
from Cheektowaga, New York.
My feelings for you did never wane,
The hate, the spite, they still remain.
110 wins, 50 losses.
from Edmonton, Alberta.
Your perfect body, smile and walk
faded when I heard you talk
109 wins, 50 losses.
from Fort Collins, Colorado
In matters of both the mind and heart
I think it's best we stay apart
102 wins, 47 losses.
from Houston, Texas
I felt the earth move 'neath my feet
Perhaps you should have less to eat
121 wins, 58 losses.
Darling I'd take you anywhere
As long as I can leave you there
151 wins, 76 losses.
All of this year's winners will receive packages of RhymeZone motivational refrigerator magnets, and their names will be posted here if they so desire.
See you in 2004 for a brand new contest!
