    Bashing is not nice(5)
    Even Disguised as Haiku (7)
    Can we go on now? (5)

    Sorry to be a spoil sport, thats what comes from having kids and invariably having them ending up on both ends of their respective "haiku".

    (Incidentally, Haiku is 17 syllables not words.)

    And, by most definitions, Haiku should include a reference to the season in which it was written, either literally, or through a metaphor such as color, or blossom or weather. Just thought you all would like to know [​IMG]

    In response to FIH and Dakota Rube:

    D'ya mean season as in F/W and S/S, or open season?

    Anyway, FIH, ernest has been active on the boards, and has had plenty of opportunities engager la lute here. Maybe he just likes the attention.

    My new nomination for best in show:

    Although Ambulance, do you high paid lawyers have too much free time on your hands today?

    Probably.  By my count there are at least 5 other lawyers currently logged on to SF.  (You know who you are.)  Anyways, I am multi-tasking.  The left side of my brain is writing a brief, the right side is composing poetry.

    ernest, our joking at your expense is out of affection, not out of malice.

    Guilty.
    "Counsel, who is this Ernest you keep referring to in your brief, and exactly what does his wardrobe have to do with the merits of this case?" [​IMG] Oh, terrific, now I've made a clothing joke and a lawyer joke at the same time. Shoot me.

    I've guessed at your secret identity. You are Yoda. Bummer about losing all your Jedi to the Sith and all that. Much respect.
