Have a go at a Haiku!

Recommended Posts

This whole thing brings back some good old memories from the old days (Sigh...)

I still have that old book I think was called something like "A 100 Famous Haiku" somewhere.

An excellent reference about Haiku with 1-2 hundred examples.  There are several other sources for the book.

Reminds me of the old dollar jokes we used to tell at school with a terrible generic Asian accent (I have a free pass). It's infinitely funnier when only the last line is read in that accent, because then you invoke Sophisticated as Hell vibes.
