I think the breaker should graciously allow the breakee the benefit of the doubt. I wouldn't've had the Ben Wa balls to demand sex toys from the gal I just dumped. The dumper usually has someone in the wings, so the dumpee is gonna need them toys.

@lawdog I MAY be an asshole, but if you're a lawyer, there's no question about it.

If all trolls are assholes, are all assholes trolls? (No. Some are lawyers.)

I understand the use of "lonely" and bitter" in your effort to slam me, but drunk? Isn't that why we're here? Maybe if you drank more you'd come up with something more original than "Grammar Nazi."

@gr8lakesgrrl & Auntie G... if you think I'm an asshole over Haiku, you should see what happens when I see screwed up Limericks....
apologies all around!

BTW, do you think Kelly-O is silent because she's still hung over from the election, or because we all sucked?

@Lawdog et all: Oy. Copied a pdf, the "Scholastic" letterhead did not copy or paste(yes, scholastic, the book folks you used to order from in grade school, god love em).

Twas not my intent to pass this off as my own. Thought the reference was included in my hasty copy and paste. FAIL.

Here's the link to the PDF I found on their website scholastic.com)
I don't know where they got it, but it's a nice clear explanation of the nebulous concept of Haiku.

"The Death of America." What a buncha sore losers. Victoria Jackson was the best!

Sounds like the same person made all the comments. Unless they all sound that much alike?

What is Haiku?
Haiku is a form of poetry, first made popular in Japan, which has become appreciated
around the world. Haiku poets are challenged to convey a vivid message in only 17
syllables.
One of the greatest Haiku poets was the Samurai, Basho (1644-94). Basho's father was
also a Samurai from the Iga province. To become a Samurai, Basho served a local lord
who was fond of writing. Basho learned the style of writing Haiku, and wrote under the
name, Sobo. During the years, Basho traveled throughout Japan writing and further
developing the Haiku style. He died in Osaka, Japan in 1694, and continued to write haiku
up until his death. A sample of Basho's haiku style:

Spring morning marvel
lovely nameless little hill
on a sea of mist

In Japan these poems are valued for their simplicity, openness, depth and lightness.
Structural Rules:
• Use exactly 17 syllables
• Syllables are arranged in three lines of 5-7-5
• Avoid similes and metaphors
• Refers to a season of the year
What is a Haiku about?
Haiku poems can describe anything, but are seldom complicated or hard to
understand. Almost all Haiku has a dominant impression, or main idea, that appeals
strongly to one of the five senses.
The Seasonal Theme
Each Haiku must contain a kigo, a season word, which indicates what season of the
year the Haiku is set. For example, blossoms would indicate spring, snow would
give the idea of winter, mosquitoes would imply summertime. The seasonal words
isn't always that obvious, you might needs to consider the theme of the poem to
find it. For example:

Clouds appear and bring -
to men a chance to rest from
looking at the moon

The seasonal word in this Haiku is clouds, indicating the rainy season.
