Postmodernism
Always rubbed me the wrong way
Except in haiku.

So go right ahead.
Make nonsenseical haiku.
Interpolated.
I know gameology-fu.

Post-modern, you say?
Well, I can make an attempt
How is this for weird?

A green bell dances
Come and wake the loud rumbling
Screw Flanders Screw Flan-
My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

Sometimes I wonder
Why everyone seems to hate
Poor old Ned Flanders.

Now, for my next trick,
I will reprint a haiku
Not written by me.

Haiku are easy,
But sometimes they don't make sense
Refrigerator.
I know gameology-fu.

Considering time
you would think haiku would all
be aquamarine.

Let's make poetry...
Let me show you my long line...
Blue haiku is bad.

Turquoise bicycles
Shoe fits actualise all
Radishes greenly

I beg forgiveness.
I will try to keep control
Of my inner slaad.
I know gameology-fu.

Damn you, you haiku,
your structure is so very
simple... so simple.

Must we speak haiku,
And not in another way?
I like sonnets more.

Fat man tries to rise
But he falls back down to earth
He was just too fat

Sprawled there on the floor
He lies there in misery
Blocking the pavement

Spying his distress
A man thinks logistically
Forklift is needed



Dont let me write these
I am so the Haiku master
Crap, that one was eight

If you\'re an army barber, does that mean you make a living shaving privates?

Hairless is the best,
Hot wax, loud rip, shrill shrieking,
Note: never again.

People usually think that I've lost my mind. I haven't lost it, I know exactly where it is: the gutter.

My body is a temple. That is why I make chocolate sacrifices in it every day.

Stunned silence ensues
Is that even possible
with a ping pong ball?

Clint Eastwood looks up
"Go ahead punk, make my day"
The punk makes his day

Hadn't yet considered Clint
Though I just might, now

Wealth. Glory. Power.
A true samurai needs none.
Only his duty.
Faith can move mountains. It still can't deflect bullets.



"Communication with humans." is a cross-class skill for me. Please bear this in mind.

How to bake a cake:
Step 1: get some flour and eggs
...figure out the rest

Ryu sets his feet
he sends out a ball of flames
ADOOGIT he cries

It rains here now. Good.
Now it's really quite sunny.
It rains yet again.

My throat is hurting.
It has been for near five months.
I'm still not sure why.

... yay!

Quote from: Cafiend
It is a shame stupidity isn't painful.
Quote from: StormKnight
Totally true.  Historians believe that most past civilizations would have endured for centuries longer if they had successfully determined Batman's alignment.
Quote from: Grand Theft Otto
Why are so many posts on the board the equivalent of " Dear Dr. Crotch, I keep punching myself in the crotch, and my groin hurts... what should I do? How can I make my groin stop hurting?"
Quote from: CryoSilver
I suggest carving "Don't be a dick" into him with a knife.  A dull, rusty knife.  A dull, rusty, bent, flaming knife.
Quote from: Seerow

Steve: You underestimate my power!
Fluffy: Don't try it, Steve!
Steve: *charges*
Fluffy: *three critical strikes*
Steve: ****
Quote from: claypigeons
I don't even stat out commoners. Commoner = corpse that just isn't a zombie. Yet.
Quote from: CryoSilver
When I think "Old Testament Boots of Peace" I think of a paladin curb-stomping an orc and screaming "Your death brings peace to this land!"

I think that it may
Be due to the adage that

Or possibly that
Everyone here sucks at
making good haikus...

My body is a temple. That is why I make chocolate sacrifices in it every day.
