It has been a long
time since I've listened to Shawn's
voice - oh it feels good.

Remember folks each line of a Haiku has to be complete. For example Yoyoson what you wrote would actually just be

Which is not a Haiku

I don't think you were being serious when you wrote that but I thought I should bring it up so that everyone was aware. We are going to pick what we think is the best Haiku and I would hate to see someone send in something good that didn't really follow the rules of a Haiku, and thus not win.

Are we sure about that?

I trust Wiki about as far as I can throw it.

In every English haiku I have ever read each sentence could be considered it's own thought and did not need the next sentence to complete it.

Besides I will be one of the judges, even if the other judges didn't care, that's one less vote in favor of an oddly written Haiku. You can take your chances I guess.

I have likely failed
Even before writing mine
For Gaald now hates me

Now that's a Haiku! Unfortunately not gaming related. Don't worry Fed, I am not so fickle. I don't hate you. Everyone has a chance!

Rob gets a small taste of a legitimate chance to judge and he lets it go to his head. News at 11

Oh Shawn you and I both know I don't need an excuse to judge. I am the judger!

Let me be the first to say that overly endstopped poems are inherently wrong. Not bad, wrong.

Dead Poets Society... Myst

Nobody would want to play DPS (except emo kiddies) because -- and I haven't been mature enough to admit this to myself for as long as I'd like -- Dead Poets Society sucked. It really did. I'm sorry.

Just when I was beginning to think that there was hope for you...

Look, I apologized, but I can't accept that much emo under the auspices of inattentive, self-indulgeant frivolity -- even for high schoolers. And I went to public school.

How come I had no problem with that? Probably because I'm so awesome.

Tell all your lady friends.

Have I ever told you you're my favorite GWJer? :D

Soo... you come here often? ("Hey, sexy mama, wanna kill all humans?")
