You know, we at Van Full of Candy have been doing a lot of talking AT you. You come by and you listen to our nonsensical views on trivial things and then you go away. Sure, it’s a good system, but we want more, and we know that deep down in a place that you might not even know exists, you NEED more too. We need to reach out, to touch one another with hands that, though strangers, instinctively know exactly where to go and what to do, like the rest of our lives has just been preparation for this one, invigorating moment… And write Haikus about Vans…
So that’s what we’re going to do. We’re rolling open that big, loud side door, and letting you in to Van Full of Candy’s 2011 Van Haiku Contest! You know how the ancient Japanese art of lazy poetry goes, right? Three lines, five syllables in the first, seven in the second and five again for the third. As per example:
Van, you are my world
Rolling one room apartment
Filled with tasty, Yum
Genius, I know, but don’t be discouraged, give it a try! Here’s all the details, right below here, after this line, right under it, well, right under the line that’s under this line now. You know what, why don’t I just get to it…

Shit yeah that’s what I said!
