Is coming nearer on the path.

Bizarrely Brilliant Haiku (alas, not mine)

Surfing Bunny McIntosh (so to speak), I came across her link to her interview with Scene Missing Magazine. In poo-pooing her hilarious SM interview, she directed readers' attentions instead to the SM interview of Bob Odenkirk of Mr. Show.

Concluding the Odenkirk interview, he was asked to compose a haiku, and this is what he came up with:


Five syllables is
Less than Seven and five more
is still not enough

Fuck, you got me to write a fucking haiku.


Assuming this isn't some old standard that I've never come across (which I fear it is), methinks it's not bad at all.
