Friday haiku

So my friend Greg (god rest his soul…oh, he’s not dead. He just doesn’t call me anymore.) always used to write a Friday haiku and send it out to all his friends; and I had so much fun writing that absurd poem yesterday, I thought maybe he wouldn’t mind passing the torch along to me.

Here you go.

Setting back women’s
liberation one royal
wedding at a time.

  • MelissaNibbles

    I liked the wedding. And her pretty dress.

    F Greg.

  • Katie

    They banned beer at the event… what a terrible event!

    • Marie

      Okay, that’s it. Eff the aristocracy!

  • shelby

    I was just reading something online about how she’s not actually a princess because she’s a duchess or something like that. Suck on that one, Disneyheads!

    I do think her dress was lovely, though.

    • Marie

      She’s also a commoner and a trollop! Wot wot?!

  • Aj from QueerVeganRunner

    Wait, you’re getting married? I’m confused.

    • Marie

      That’s right. Now let’s see your curtsy!

      • Aj from QueerVeganRunner

        I just cannot comprehend a blog post that is not entirely about the blogger and her magical wonderful life.

    Haiku Start:
    Prince William’s big teeth
    Make him look like a beaver
    /Haiku Stop

    • Marie

      I may have to amend this to “filthy haiku friday.”

      I was hoping more people would post their own… guess I should have asked a question in bold!

  • Erin

    You summed up my thoughts so succinctly.

  • kemibe

    I can’t write Haikus.
    I can’t say a fucking thing
    in under ten words.

  • cindylu

    Did you know Disneyland has a Princess Half Marathon now? It’s so freakin’ expensive too. I know it’s gonna sell out because even grown ass women have a princess complex.

    I used to try to write daily haiku. The project lasted half a year. Some weren’t half bad and I’d even write in Spanish occasionally, but that’s tough since words have more syllables en español.

    • kemibe

      Any event put on by Disney is fucking garbage and deserved to be eliminated by dint of horrific acts of God, a violent uprising by millions of aggrieved peasants, or thermonuclear bombs. Heckling it on the Internet is a good start, I suppose.

      Julie Threlkeld of Races Like a Girl used to write funny object Haikus:

    • Marie

      You’d have to pay ME to do the Disney Half. I heard it’s really annoying because people are constantly stopping on the course to take pictures and such. No thanks!

      If I can keep up the Friday haiku thing for six months, I think I’ll consider it a successful endeavor.

  • cindylu

    Dear, I must confess
    Slept through the ceremony
    Ogled the lace dress

  • Stephanie@MyThornsHaveRoses

    I didn’t watch it
    I think bald men are fugly
    I googled “the dress”

  • Ob of an Ob

    I’d like to say I’d
    rather bang the younger one
    (he is of age now)

    I suck at these things.

  • sarah

    Nothing ruins a
    Former “Bop”centerfold like
    Male pattern baldness.
