Introducing Bad Date Haiku

Filed under: Area 51 

As some of you have probably noticed my posting of late has been a bit sporadic. The reason for this is two-fold:

  1. I have been very, very busy. Mostly with taking our pets to and from the veterinarian.
  2. I have at long last directed my attention to other creative endeavors.

Like this.

Bad Date Haiku came into being the way most good things do: procrastination. Last week my buddy over at Bad Advice and I were talking on the phone about bad dates. We both had better things to do but quite frankly we were having fun. At one point she rolled out a real doozy and it struck me:

That sounded a lot like a haiku.

I told her this and an hour later I got the ball rolling by emailing her my very own bad date haiku. Needless to say it snowballed from there. More people started participating, our inboxes got fuller and fuller and we finally decided “Why not share the joy with the world?”.

So we did.

At some point we’re going to roll this over into a bona fide web site. In the meantime you can savor Bad Date Haiku version 1.0 (as constructed by the ever fabulous Bad Advice) by clicking here. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed creating it! (WARNING: some images NSFW.)
