| [irish haiku]
Fear not! It befalls without fail
(With but aid from some flagons of ale):
At the cons, in the lane,
And sometimes aflame,
Forever the pantsless prevail!

Largo digs his way into a trough,
Causing Piro, embarrassed, to cough,
For the wrong eti-quette,
He has learned from the net:
It's your hat, not your pants, you should doff!

Largo is delusional, you see.
He sees atttacks in every nook and cranny.
A magical girl in sight
caused his pants to take flight
While the crowd shouted "AAAIIIIEEEEE!!!"

With a magical girl on his trail,
And a ninja who's guarding his tail,
The l33t m4st3r rants
That he must lose his pants,
But it may steer him back into jail!
If you don't wear a hat on your hair,
You must tip something else that you wear;
Doff your pants to your host
(It's in Emily Post!)
With eclat, or at least savoir faire.
Still, it's fortunate that this whole scene
Is presented to us sight unseen,
For the loss of his britches
May have us in stitches,
But it's making the witnesses scream.
Edit: fixed a misattrributed quote.

Largo faces a choice of restriction,
Or in gaining some freedom, conviction.
But we all know he can,
Show off all his elan,
While evading our careful predictions.
While that's true, you won't get very far
(And your host may reply au revoir),
You cannot be au fait,
With your legs on display,
Without some of that je ne sais quoi
I agree it would make many scream,
But (fortunately, it would seem)
Artist Fred can't display,
Much of Largo's affray,
If the comic stays PG-13!

Tenemus? Nay, 'tis not true!
'Tis I that you must pursue.
When making the cite,
please get the names right!
or the author would be feeling blue.
Aye, it is the truth that you speak.
For pornography is not what we seek.
And so, it's off the scene
where it cannot be seen,
and yet the comedy will hit its peak.

In predictions of Largo we clearly
Need tools to apply to our queries;
But these actions of his
Bring a fresh emphasis
To the research of new chaos theories.
Well Largo is not comme-il faut,
As the people who see him all know,
His bottomless state
Gets an artistic rate
As an au naturel a la mode!
It would certainly cause some to panic,
And others might even get frantic,
Seeing Largo stride forth
With his south end gone north,
Inebriate, pantless and manic.
The limerick Rapierman wrote
I misassigned somehow in quote,
I retract and repent,
It was not what I meant!
And that misattribution revoke.*
*by way of an edit - sorry dude.

And so, with the error corrected
and the mistake firmly rejected,
all's well that ends well
I'm happy, as you can tell
and thus the apology is accepted.

[!haiku]But is it art... [/!haiku]
The last line of your po'm made me beam
(Though I'm sure it is not what you mean),
Comprehending my fate,
You must poorly translate
To: "It's Largo, he's nude, with ice-cream"
Seems he's using his pre-frontal lobe,
To solve problems found all round the globe;
Describing faux pas
As an "artwork that mars"
Not défaut de fonctionnement de garde-robe
[!haiku]I'm probably going to be lynched for that one... [/!haiku]

We've gone heavy with the limerick, I see.
Yet that's not supposed to be the trick. Pardon me.
We're supposed to do haiku,
so to benefit you,
We'll perform five-seven-fives for thee.
The shock of Largo
pantless in Tokyo town
drives crowds to scurry.
