I’m starting to ask myself where I find the time. Blogs, Tweets, Job(s), Fantasy Sports… How’s a guy supposed to balance all of this and still crap out haikus on a daily basis? I need to pull a Michael Keaton a la that shitfest Multiplicity and get myself some kind of cloning device. Granted, more me means more evil, but c’mon, World, you survived Hitler, Mao, Mussolini and Dr. Phil. What’s one more asshole, right?
This installment of haikus covers Monday, October 12 through Sunday, October 18, hitting Mad Men, Columbus Day, a trip to the beach, and, of course, Balloon Boy. As always, you can find this collection here every Monday, or if you’re impatient (like me) you can find me on Twitter (@CousinBrandon). Now then, folks, let’s all take a deep breath, count to ten, and just pass out on the floor…
Sorry, I was temporarily distracted. My cat made a weird noise that was something between a burp and a car horn. Animals are weird.
