Intelligence has been trickling in from trusted sources suggesting a major catastrophe – the apparent loss of the Haiku Trophy at a river crossing between China and Vietnam. An upstream dam burst as the stolen urn was being off-loaded by hooligans. We have, thanks to Sarah Porter Law, two shocking photos of the deluge. Curiously, Sarah Porter seems to be conveniently on hand when we are about to close in on our antagonists in some obscure hinterland. Hence we keep in mind the possibility of “fauxtography”. Nonetheless, we felt it justified to pass this information along. If reliable, we have but one hope – that the urn… was stoppered. You can discern our treasure floating off in the lower right corner of the second image. Our optimism is waning…. our contestants are despondent… the prolonged uncertainty is taking its toll…

  1. Such nonsense and fabrication! As much as I hope for the safe return of the trophy, I fear I can offer no insights as to its whereabouts. I have been enjoying the summer down under in Australia and New Zealand. I offer cousin Dan Mellamphy and his family as my witnesses. evidence to be forthcoming

    Best of luck!
