If you SFs want a REAL challenge, try catching up with the SUMMER OF SOMETHING!
It kept on going while the site was down over on our other site: Twoheadedchicken.com.
The good news is that there never was a time limit. You can do them anytime you like — even mid-winter — and still earn your badges! There’s no rush!
ALL the challenges up to 9 are now available on the MERIT BADGE HQ page. (Also, 10 challenges from last summer!)
Here is #9:
The RHYMING BADGE!
Your challenge this week is to write a SONNET.
We won’t worry too much about syllables and rhythms and meter and all that, but you do need to get some rhymes in there!
A Shakespearean Sonnet rhymes like this: ABAB CDCD EFEF GG
We’ll make a mini-sonnet that goes like this: ABAB CC
ABAB means the first line rhymes with the third line and the second line rhymes with the fourth. The CC means line 5 and 6 rhyme with each other.
A SONNET for the SMURFS
There was a show in 1980,
I saw a time or two.
It had blue men and a blue lady
And an evil wizard, too.
A song of LA LA LA they didst sing shrilly.
Hard to believe it was on TV, really.
Give it a try! Suggested topics are: bad TV shows, good TV shows, Star Wars, Star Trek, Star Search, commercials, squirrels, Cheetos and/or The Two-Headed Chicken!
To earn your badge, write your mini-sonnet and SUBMIT it to Webmaster Sam with BADGE 9 and YOUR NAME in the title!
