Lanna geeks out on statistics every day as a Jr. Programmer/ Analyst at Digital Research, Inc. But Lanna is also a student and an award-winning balloon twister, clown and speaker. Yes, she has won awards for all three, and with those awards she received trophies. But no cash. Lanna has twisted balloon animals since 1989, when she became a clown – however, she does not juggle. Her balloons have been seen in Maxim Magazine and she taught at Twist & Shout 2004, The Best Balloon Twister’s and Entertainer’s Convention.

The Hints
  • Although the Haikus do not have to be cat related or Hunter related, both subjects would be more apt to be finalists in the contest.
  • Silly is good.
  • Funny is good.
  • Humor in your Haiku would be a good bet.
  • If you want to read more about Haikus, visit this page:, or google them.
