Our Favorite Recession Haiku

Having trouble with the slideshow? Try this one.

Last week, we issued our Recession Haiku challenge, and you responded with vigor — on the blog, on Twitter, on Facebook (x2), over e-mail. At this rate, we'll get to our millionth Recession Haiku by the time the economy turns around.

We gathered a dozen of our favorites for the gallery above. My personal honorable mention is after the jump.

A virtual ribbon for Trey Bien, who wrote:

On her mattress

Filled with twenties.
