A haiku bake-off?
Sticky little buns of wit
Eye rolls all around.

If I read any
more haiku by hacks and geeks,
it will not end well.

When I was young, Bill
Bixby was My Favorite
Earthling. Today? Meh.

Haiku by hacks and
geeks, you say? Me, I'd call 'em
Kack-ku and Geek-ku.

Those would all be called Senryƫ
Yes, I am a geek.

With sixteen syllables
Is really diffic

Courtship of Eddie's Father Haiku... I can do that. Here's one for James Komack:

I'm Norman Tinker
My best friend's cute son helps me

One boy cuddly toy
and Mr. Eddie's Father.
I'm their asian slave.

That was James Brolin.

No, it wasn't Bill,
but when I saw the Hulk's junk,
I still hated him.
