Oh we don't open the spam (at least I don't, and no one else should, either). These are just the titles.

Haiku works as follows:
5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables

And some of us don't play by the rules if we think the result will be mildly amusing Very Happy

We don't need no stinkin' rules!

On another threat I floated the idea of "spam slams" which can also be fun. It's kind of a Jack Kerouck, beat thing, ya'know?

For a spam slam just copy off some titles that strike your fancy. These appeared in order in my spam file but I couldn't work out a haiku from them -- but they were too good to pass up:

Lets go
'I'll see, I'll see.
his by magnitude
Of rectify a causate
but he extension
Of by bugeyed
require rectal

You just know that Norberto is Harlequin Romance cover material.

Leprosy or cottonwood
wasteland, whichever.
But rhyming barbs crack the whip.

Today's question ...

bastard with whom kulm gave
caliphate a nod

Is "kulm" a real word?

Geronimo Levine. His parents' love was taboo, but when Gerry came along, the families forgot their differences and all came together for his Navajo cleansing/healing ceremony/Bar Mitzvah. Kreplach and maize were served.

I like your story, Jespah. Today's haiku:

There! In no man's land,
everything should be okay.
Up periscope.



And as for names, I can't decide between:

Cathleen Colon (would that be anatomical or grammatical, Cathleen?)
or
Delicia Ahmet

I heard a program on radio today about spam, and efforts to catch the spammers. The guest who was being interviewed ended the program with a rather poor effort at spamku, which made me think of Boom and this thread. So, here's my poor effort

Nice one!

All my spam lately has been lotto winnings and gift cards. The offer to claim my free $1,500 Starbucks card has me particularly interested. Not that I like Starbucks much but I have no idea how I would be able to spend $1,500 there. I usually just get a drip coffee there. I suppose it might be funny to go in there and say "I want 750 cups of drip coffee" and wait around while they filled my order.

Two lattes and a lemon-poppy seed muffin (which would still leave you $1.50 for a tip).

I don't have the time and energy to devote to creating a spamku right now, unfortunately, but I thought this was just too poetic to let it die an ignominious death in the trash bin:

"And they both enters the barge and sail across the lake." Wow! I want to know more about them! Whither do they go, across yon lake? But I'll never know... *sigh*
