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. dubyah1 says:

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

  3. 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.

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

  5. dgerish says:

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

  6. “slowetry in motion” ?!?!

    oh fer cryin’ out loud, oak.

  7. Cleopatra got
    a little carried away
    with her eyeliner

  8. Rachael says:

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

  9. Fird Birfle says:

    Cute Overload, aka

    Sloths R Us

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

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

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

  13. Mary (the first) says:

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

  14. Mary (the first) says:

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

  15. 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.

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

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

  18. luvstehQte says:

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

  19. 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

  20. Sorry, in Fri-ku:

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

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

    (see, I can fri-ku too!)

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

  23. 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!

  24. Googlebaby says:

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

  25. victoreia says:


  26. 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.

  27. would you like them in a pan?

  28. I love the cleopatra eyeliner!!!

  29. bob drummond says:

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

  30. bob drummond says:

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

  31. bob drummond says:


  32. bob drummond says:

    …as sung by Johny Tillotson !

  33. 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*

  34. 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?

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

  36. LOL BOB! me too!

  37. dubyah1 says:

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

  38. sure! wanna come with me?

  39. LOL 🙂

  40. My nails are quite long
    The manicures can take hours!
    As they file….I smile.

  41. 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. 😀

  43. bob drummond says:
