It’s back! The best, cheesiest love poem competition on the internet! Yes, it’s that time of year once again for Pong’s Cheesiest Valentine Competition! We’re giving away A Heart-Shaped Box with a box of Thomas J Fudge’s Biscuits for Cheese to the best short poem or one-liner, dedicated to a loved one, with a cheesy twist. Indeed the ‘loved one’ can even be a cheese!
For example the wistful ‘when we’re miles apart, I Camembert it’ or the heavily-committed ‘I will love you as Langres as I live!’ For inspiration, have a read of the winner of last year’s prize with this spectacular reworking of Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18:
“Shall I compare thee to a brie de meaux?
Thou art more cheesy and inclined to grate
Rough winds from thy darling buds do blow,
For thou art closer to thy sell-by date
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines
Upon the gold complexion of that cheese
But the piece of brie, ripening in its rind
Is sweeter than thy sweaty brand of sleaze.
For though our fleshy pleasures all must fade
Too fleetingly that pungent ripeness passed
That brie de meaux, that settled in the shade
I left awhile, expecting it to last.
You loved me once, and did your best to please
And I loved you, until you ate my cheese”
The competition will run until the end of Sunday 7th February at which point we’ll choose the best poem/ one-liner and will contact the winner to arrange for the Heart-Shaped Box to be sent in time for Valentine’s Day (Sunday14th February).
