You proved that haiku can be scary!

Your haikus scared the “h” out of “gost,” so now we can deliver the prizes!

We are pleased to announce the winners of our 5th Annual Mozy Frightful Computer Haiku Contest. You, dear customers, made us proud by putting the chupa back in chupacabra. We’re not going to lie to you: There were so many wonderful submissions this year that we didn’t think we had a gost (remember, the “h” ran off) of a chance to select just three winners. So many great haikus, but only three prizes to award. After much wailing and gnashing of teeth, we selected our winners:

Winner:
Data left for dead,
Noose around its neck? …Mozy
Won’t leave you hangin’!
—M. Neal

Winner:
Late at night he comes
The Grim Reaper and his scythe
Ach! My head is gone!
—Marci Humphreys

Winner:
Zombies and vampires
are nothing when compared to
running out of treats!
—CIMHsv

Congratulations! Each of our winners will receive a $50 gift card. (Winners, please email us at stories@mozy.com and please include your name and mailing address.)

We understand that some of you may be disappointed that you didn’t win, but there’s always next year. So check back with us next October. In the meantime, enjoy your Halloween candy and practice writing haikus.

Back up with Mozy
Even if you didn’t win
There’s always next year
