Friday Haiku: Don’t Rush Me

You want a haiku?

I will try to think of one

I’m thinking  …thinking

This might be a good time to read War & Peace, Hotshotjen.

    I am the expert
    At slowetry in motion
    Dude, come hang with me

  2. “slowetry in motion” ?!?!

    oh fer cryin’ out loud, oak.

  3. How does Oak do it? That’s what I want to know. HOW.

  4. She’s a random generator from the Borg cooperative, sent to take over our weakened minds, which have been kilt DED by the Qte.

    …as sung by Johny Tillotson !

  7. bob drummond says:

    Would that be sung to the tune of “Poetry In Motion “?

  8. dubyah1 says:

    Two-toed or three-toed,
    Second-fav’rite deadly sin
    At the speed of cute.

  9. dubyah1 says:

    Wups! In mod lounge, donning smoking jacket and pug slipp`eres, sipping on something suitable and raiding ‘fridge.

    Two-toed or three-toed,
    Second-fav’rite dedly sin
    At the speed of cute.

  10. Mary (the first) says:

    Interesting. I assumed it was that last word, line 2, that got you into the lounge.

  11. dubyah1 says:

    Nope, I forgot about ‘ded’. Dedly sinning is abetted on CO, what with the morsel-popping, ear-nom line-cutting, kitteh-napping and concupiscent capybara- and covey-coveting that goes on here.
    As for my fourth favourite sin, behold the mod. lounge, and Exhibit Ehn: now littered with crumpled Dove bar wrappers and avocado chip bags, and crantini glasses mysteriously covered in chocolate smears and sticky green fingerprints.

  12. care to rank them for us, dub? inquiring minds want to know… we know #s 2 and 4, where do you place the others? :D

  13. Maru and Loris?
    are you confusing your cute
    with your dedly sins?

    (see, I can fri-ku too!)

  14. Sorry, in Fri-ku:

    Luxuria, (obv!)
    Sloth, Maru, Gula, Loris,
    And Superb-Ira

  15. Thanks for asking!
    in demi-Latin for the pearl-clutchers, since I’m still full on mod-lounge goodies:
    Luxuria [obv!], Sloth, Maru, Gula, Superbia, Loris, and Ira

  16. The humans call me
    Little Buttercup, although
    I could not tell why

  17. dgerish says:

    Pyrit, this may be your best Friday haiku EVER. I lol’ed.

  18. Cleopatra got
    a little carried away
    with her eyeliner

  19. I love the cleopatra eyeliner!!!

  20. Rachael says:

    “Spring” into action
    My slothful smile is ready
    To warm your sad heart

  21. Fird Birfle says:

    Cute Overload, aka

    Sloths R Us

  22. I am so learning to appreciate and love the sloth smiles. Wonder if they are as happy as they appear.

  23. When you are close to a sloth everyone smiles!

  24. Sounds like a terrific first line for a song, doesn’t it?

    When you are close to a sloth, everyone smiles.
    Great big grins that spread for miles and miles and miles.
    For being nearby to a slothy makes everyone feels frothy
    And that’s why the sloth is so good for your health.
    Oohh, when you are close to a sloth, everyone smiles.

  25. Mary (the first) says:

    Since I just got up
    I feel like a sloth myself
    I need more coffee.

  26. Said the two-toed sloth
    “Don’t need no stinkin’ third toe
    Two’s just fine, thank you.”

  27. luvstehQte says:

    more friday haikus
    than i could possibly read
    in just one sitting

  28. The Sloth sat high up in a tree
    and said “my life is great for me.
    Although I do not move real fast,
    every day I have a blast.
    I smile and smile the whole day through.
    and never do I sing the blues
    and so the time is right you see,
    to let the world hear me say WEE!

  29. bob drummond says:

    That how I behave after some sweet old boy spikes my coffee !! Wheeeee !

  30. LOL BOB! me too!

  31. Googlebaby says:

    I don’t like sloths, and I wish that co wouldn’t post so many of them…

  32. Fird Birfle says:

    *dons asbestos coat and bulletproof vest*

    While it might be heresy @ CO, I’ll admit that I’m moderately creeped-out by the whole sloth meme as well …..

    *runs away in a cowardly fashion*

  33. Fird I am sending a sloth to run after you! If you could just stay still for a couple of hours while he slooowly catches up. :D

  34. Fird Birfle says:

    kittya: I do agree about the smilingk.

    Saffron: sure. No Problem.


  35. BUT FIRD!!!! look at the smiles!!!!!!!!!!L who could not smile when you see those sweetmfaces.

  36. would you like them in a pan?

  37. Would you like them in a cup,or in a can or on a pup? Would you like them near or far? Would you like them in a car?

  38. dubyah1 says:

    From my second favourite Dr. Seuss book, ‘Sloth on Cloth’
