Ping's innocent words
Devastate Piro's worldview.
Speaking of bombshells ...

Stunning reminder
That Erika is female:
Cute little gym shorts.

Unexploded ordinance
Ruptures beneath the helmet.

Its final hurrah
Jolts through the unwary, though
Sounds with but a Thonk.

How could you forget that? I mean, she has the most bust. What's to forget?

Some things must be learned
Through wordless observation,
Not anxious questions.

Here the characters and strips
See commentary in verse.

[!haiku] We appreciate your interest, but the Haiku threads let us give commentary on the strips and the characters' reactions in verse. There are a number of such traditions around here, and the best way to learn about them is to simply observe how things work.

To answer your specific complaint, one doesn't have to forget something to be reminded of it; it may simply not be on the person's mind at the time. AncestralHamster's verse was a comment on the impact of it, I believe. [/!haiku]

Then please forgive me if I misunderstood what you ment

When Ping-chan, all pretty and pert,
Broached an issue that Piro would skirt,
I must beg to report
That his breath became short,
And his stunned stare made Erika curt.

If Irish that haiku really was
You'd be all drunk and have a nice buzz
For the Irish do get drunk a lot
You wrote that poem, I could tell you were not
Bartender, get me a Guiness!...does

Broken Bird dazzles
An admiring fledging
Who chirps happily.



Nightstrife is correct. I'm commenting on Piro's reaction. Piro has difficultly seeing Erika as female, as shown by the current comic and

I suggest you read the which covers some the traditions of this forum.

Oh, and you've misspelled Erika's name in your .sig.

A Small Shock of Life
Bare Essentials Put On
Not The Only Spark.

There, dissapointment
L33t N3KKid Skillz falls through
And the fans just weep

There once was an artist named Fred,
Who was thought to draw characters Naked.
On the day of the strip,
It was a false tip,
And those poor fanpeople cry in their beds.

I am sorry for the inconvinience I have given, I shall make sure I don't come in here and offen someone again.

The former idol
On the search for her backpack.
It's not on her back!

Still Piro, the poor salesman,
Cannot quite stop his staring.

What thoughts must have crossed
That young fellow's shaken mind.
Poor little fanboy!

Because he knows, we have seen,
How Largo works b'fore a screen.

[Irish Haiku]
Offense? I see none of the sort!
You merely did not see our sport
'Twas misunderstanding
We're just explaining our standing,
The reason behind our rapport
[/Irish Haiku]

[!haiku] I think you misunderstand. There was a miscommunication, it was repaired. There was no offense meant and, in turn, none taken, at least as far as I can tell.

As for the mentions of the forum tradition, the implication was that you should always reply in verse around here. Yes, we're a bunch of whackos in here, but we think it's fun. If you want to talk about the story in normal speech, Piro puts up a for each strip.

And please, don't feel driven from the haiku threads because of this. You're more than welcome here, so long as you help keep the poetry alive. happy.gif[/!haiku]

Like a meteor
Images of her figure
Trails across his mind

Won’t look at me twice
But she undresses for him
My stupid roommate

/Temenus, who does not believe that Piro is interested in Erika in quite that way but then again…

Posted by: Rapierman Jan 3 2005, 04:03 AM
Erika says, "No!"
Largo compromises.
It's all gym shorts now.

Poor Piro, he's freaked.
Erika...wearing gym shorts?
Who can believe it???
