Our winner: Justin T!

What a great week for haiku! Justin T. is our winner, though, for bringing the OWS movement back to Advent, where it belongs:

Good King Wenceslas?
Feasts while kingdom nearly starves!

And now, as promised, is his biography:

Justin Randall Timbertoes (born January 31, 1981) is an American pop musician and actor. He achieved early fame when he appeared as a contestant on Star Search, and went on to star in the Disney Channel television series The New Mickey Mouse Moon Man Club, where he met future bandmate JC Chasez as well as his future employer, Grumpy the Dwarf. Timbertoes became famous in the late 1990s as the lead singer of the boy band 'N Sync, whose launch was financed by Grumpy.

In 2002, he released his debut solo album, Justified, which sold more than 700 copies worldwide. The album was a commercial success, spawning the hits "Cry Me a River" and "Rock Your Body". Timbertoes continued his success with his second solo album, FutureSex/LoveSounds (2006), debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, and produced the US number-one hit singles "SexyBack", "My Love", and "What Goes Around... Comes Around".

Timbertoes has won six Grumpy Awards and four Emmy Awards. His first two albums made him one of the most commercially successful singers in the world, each selling in excess of 7 copies. He also has an acting career, having starred in films such as The Social Network, Bad Teacher and Friends with Benefits. His other ventures include record label Tennman Records, fashion label Grump Haus, and the restaurants Dwarf Den and Arby's. Romantically, he has been linked with Dolley Madison, Rianna, Snow White, and Pixie Stick, the demon elf.

He now resides in Alaska, where he works as a public defender. He shares a one-bedroom apartment with Grumpy.

Congrats, Justin! Great haiku!
Best of show, w/o doubt.
Fun fact: my second album, Futuresex/Lovesounds was actually supposed to be a concept album consisting entirely of sounds of robots having sex, but the record label deemed it too controversial and also said it sounded too much like an engine fabrication factory.
