Friday Humor: Haiku

Okay, before I get going on the main topic of this Friday Humor post, I'd like to link you to a pretty funny commercial. It's a joint production of WoW China and Coca-Cola and it's worth a look. You can find it here.

Well, let's move from China to Japan. At the suggestion of Tavalia in the comments section a few weeks back, I humbly present to you: EQII Haikus.

Gentle deer, munching
on sweet Antonican grass;
quest says to stab you.

Water drips slowly,
Eternity stands so still,
when will this mob pop?
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Magical carpet
shall float me to nirvana
just need sixty plat.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
My sweetest flower
Your face is fairest beauty;
thanks to SOGA model.

Friendly pick-up group,
ah, new comrades in arms-
Hello XP debt.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Your bodice comes off
revealing dark elf cleavage-
whoops, was a mistell.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
I lost my sweet love,
how ever will I find you?
Try using waypoint.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Searching through long night
to find true heart's desire:
Palladium cluster.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
I trust you, my love,
And AF with all my heart-
Crash! Zek mineshaft!
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Sweet sunshine cat
I feed you tasty pepper,
Patches we still miss you.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
My nerves atwitter,
I confess my love for you-
player is AFK.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Sweet embrace of sleep
creeps softly over me-
now my raid group wiped.

Reader Contributions

A haiku duo from Scotticus:

Phat Plat spent on new digs.
Nice neighborhood with low crime.
Damn non binding rule.
I see dead people
A good samaritan am I
t rez out of group.

Thanks Scotticus!

Here's a timely one from Vetil:

Delicious gnoll loot
Splitpaw hoards will make me rich-
Oops, just read patch notes!

Thanks for contributing Vetil!

And, wow - a contribution from Moorgard, posted on the Aggro Forums:

Players wished me well.
I moved to design, nerfed them...
Now they hate my guts.

I told you he had a sense of humor. Thanks Moorgard.

Like my EQII Limericks post, I am making this a reader contribution affair. Either e-mail me (click /who on the right hand side of the page for my e-mail) or post your haiku on the Aggro Fourms and I will edit this post with it. For general guidelines on the format you can check here but I am not counting syllables. No profanity for the contributions please but feel free to be as profane as you like on the Aggro Forums.
