    croco = pour gangsters
    marron, travail = pour fermiers
    chomage = pour Ernest

    Ernest sur la toile: Fermiers aux habits marrons, Quid de l'Iowa? Edit: my 400th post is this haiku for Ernest. If anybody had told me this... I would have said that haiku are for poets.

    Brillant Alchem. Though my command of French grammar & syntax is terrible & my memory of the vocabulary non-existant, please accept this humble haiku. Bracketed word reflects ignorance of French word. Feel free to post revision. I have no idea whether it it's permissible to have internal rhyme in haiku structure, but I really like it.


    C'est bon chanson
    pour mon [hero] Ernie Paris
    et Iowa fille.

    You know in haiku there is little grammar or syntax: you stack up words.

    The main probleme in your haiku is that you'll need to had some words for proper syntax and that will hurt your word count. Let's give it a try:
    Une bonne chanson
    pour mon hÃ[​IMG]ros parisien,
    fille de l'Iowa.
    [Iowa is a pain because it eats up 3 syllabs.]

    Sur Paris il règne Mesdames messieurs, votre roi Ernest premier. Mini Bonaparte un Waterloo quotidien A quand Austerlitz ? Un seigneur vraiment. Osez-vous le contester ? Etes-vous un fermier ? De marron il rêve De dÃ[​IMG]barasser la ville Sus aux fermiers . Hermès ce dealer essaie de vendre du H sur toutes ses ceintures C'est un fermier, Que dis-je c'est un fermier ? C'est un parisien. Manton porte marron, Ernest porte or et couronne. Fermier, souverain Dans sa dignitÃ[​IMG] Il refuse de travailler Ernest de brailler Ô vision funeste Fat, jadis fat, c'est Ernest Le fuir comme la peste Ici il dÃ[​IMG]boule, Ce diable de Tasmanie, Et plus rien ne reste. Habiles Ã[​IMG][​IMG]phants Parmi la porcelaine Font moins de dÃ[​IMG]gats. Ernest ? badaboum . Gros sabots eus en promo. Etes-vous assurÃ[​IMG]s ? Un seul être vous manque... Ernest ? non, pas lui bien sur. A bas Manpower . Croco mange poisson Maquereau porte croco La boucle est bouclÃ[​IMG]e Al Capone saisi Pour son croco condamnÃ[​IMG] Ernest sans pitiÃ[​IMG][​IMG] . Elliott Ernesst peausseries alambiquÃ[​IMG]es sans cesse Ã[​IMG]radique Plus de huit mille mètres ? Cet Ernest est un gÃ[​IMG]ant. Pardon ? Everest ? Sur clavier tapote La nuit, en forum papote Dit choses idiotes Que choisir : oui/non Pas l'Europe mais le marron Que choisir : non/non Mathieu
