Bird Poetry Contest Winner

Congratulations to Shula, the Umbrella Cockatoo!

Bird poetryPrevue Pet Products awarded Shula, the Bird Poetry Contest winner, a brand new Prevue bird cage!

Read Shula’s winning poem:
I have a bird named Shula
Who loves to dance the Hula
I turn on a song
He dances along
Until you give him his moola
That's a cracker to you and me

I don't care what you say Ricky Roo, I still feel this was a SCAM! And a big one at that no matter what the editors say. There is NO WAY that many people would sign on EVERY SINGLE DAY to vote. Unless these 100+ people didn't have a life and nothing better to do other than sign up with BirdChannel and log on every day and vote. GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!! I still say SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM! Bird Channel needs to come up with a better voting system!

There was no cheating. The contest ran for WAY too long and people were SUPPOSED to vote once a day, every day. The rules of the contest made it be the way it was. There were many many many non-bird people that signed on every day for almost 3 months to vote for Ricky...because that is the way the editors set it up. 1 vote per day, every day. It should have been 1 vote per contest! There were bird friends, myspace friends, co-workers, family, friends of friends...everyone we could think of...they were all voting for yep. He had that many votes each day...they were verified...ask the editors...

Major SCAM!!!!!! This person and Ricky Roo totally knew how to cheat. Many other poems were better than these were. NOBODY could possibly have over 100 people that would actually take the time to sign up with BirdChannel and then go and vote every single day. These two people obviously cheated because each had approx. 75 - 100+ votes every single day! SCAM SCAM SCAM!!!
I hope you enjoy your cage Shula, because your owner CHEATED and I hope it weighs on his mind every time he looks at it!

This contest was totally unfair. This poem and another one always had about 100 votes per day. Someone was either cheating or they had an awful lot of friends and family that would sign in EVERY DAY just to vote. There were alot of other poems that were out there that were better. Next time voting should be done by an independant source not done online where scam artist know how to work the system.
