Sure, you might be asking yourself, “Why does one write haiku?” Well, friends, the answer is simple… Mind you, I don’t know the answer, but it’s a simple one.
This installment of haikus covers Monday, October 19 through Sunday, October 25, hitting Mad Men, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the NL Champion Philadelphia Phillies, Isiah Thomas, my good pals over at Twitter, and my old friends, Booze and Insomnia. As always, you can find this collection here every Monday, or simply subscribe to my Twitter feed and let the good times roll. I refuse to enable you, though. If you want those Tweets fresh from the oven, you’re going to have to subscribe yourself, without any help from me. Okay, fine, here’s a shiny nickle to get you started.
