Let's lighten things up with a Haiku thread!
CPR and Prayer
Are bad topics in the lounge
And forget tofu!

bush denies the terra's heat

Have too much time on their hands

5. reprise: OREO HAIKU
twist apart to scrape your teeth
crunch the cookie halves
dip in milk but do not drop

dunk a cookie whole
shove it in your mouth and chew
chug some milk after

stand on scale and see
what havoc oreos have wrought
jeans no longer fit

make oreos disappear
do not follow down toilet
no more oreos



by the way -- yours rocks -- I love it!
