As Hai(ku) as Wu-Tang Get: The Week in Twitter Haiku

Where has the time gone? I mean, somehow I managed to miss out on yet another week of haiku. I blame Memorial Day. The holiday, anyway. I had the day off last Monday and therefore avoided the weekly collection of Twitter haiku. Sue me. And what’s on tap this morning? Even more bullshit. See, I’m at my office right now for a goddamn conference call that kicks off shortly. And why is that total BS? Because we’re closed today for Staff Appreciation Day. In other words, my entire building is attending a picnic that doesn’t kick off until eleven o’clock or so, and yet here I am in my oven of an office spewing venom. Yeah, that’s fair.

This installment of haiku covers two weeks’ worth of haiku (Monday, May 24, 2010 through Sunday, June 6, 2010), touching on the end of LOST, murder, prospective homeowners, The Beatles vs. The Monkees, Monsturd, Cornhole, exercise, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, insomnia, Jim Joyce, yard sales and Blow. As always, you can find this collection here every Monday, or go on over and subscribe to my Twitter feed (@CousinBrandon). Now put on your big boy pants and follow me on Twitter already.

$2 instead of 20.

My Thoughts on Blow Haiku (June 6, 2010)

Johnny Depp’s Boston
accent’s better than Mark Wahlberg’s,
who’s from Boston.

Well, that’ll do it for this installment. Until next time, have at it, you vultures!
