Posted by: Rowan Bristol Dec 29 2001, 09:34 AM
Creators gather
at the feet of the master
"Baka! Add more snow!!!"

Posted by: Azuki Dec 29 2001, 09:44 AM
Can we be that bad?
Monkeys? It cannot be so!
Let me get that grub...

Made by The Ian
Sanctified by The Piro
Can this be The Truth?

Posted by: masamage Dec 29 2001, 01:32 PM
I hadn't a clue
Piro would conceal from us
A truth such as this!

I wish to follow
To learn sacred webbish truths
Atop a big hill.

It is not to be.
Alas; apparently we
Are nothing but apes. ^^


Posted by: cinder_bird Dec 29 2001, 01:52 PM
Yes, but the artists
Were apes once, we shall show them
We will not be tamed

[Hey, my first half-decent haiku]

Monnkey shall be man!
Darwin spins within his grave;
This is just too much.

Posted by: r4pt0r_x Dec 29 2001, 02:54 PM
Go monkey wrestlers!
in the monastary where
Piro goes for break.

There, you shall be trained
to handle the duty of
true webcomicry...

There is no picture,
only the imprint of your
soul on clean canvas.

Posted by: Tragic Dec 30 2001, 03:28 AM
how is it people
can spend- or dare i say waste
time making haiku

it is just pointless
unless maybe it is late
and no one's online

im bored and violent
i'll kick you in the throat, Die!
that's unrelated

im sorry. ill go.
im sure i could do some more.
but i wont. goodbye.

In keeping with the
Current strip, TragicJester
Seems unenlightened.

The disciple asked,
"Master, what is the reason
To write haiku?" "Mu!"


Posted by: cola Dec 30 2001, 03:44 AM
Haiku Zen Buddhists
know the world has these three parts:
five, seven, and five.

Oh, on topic:
The reader is not a monkey!
They are ten monkeys.

(Edit: In the future, it will no longer be necessary to quote the post one earlier.)

(Edit edit: What was I thinking about? Nineteen syllables... tongue.gif)

still Tragic dares post
clumsily putting the words
together. still, why?

unable to try
lazy Tragic didnt put
effort into them

such is, sadly, life
to spend an eternity
counting sylables

(To defend the thread's
Gregarity, I briefly
Slip into tanka)

Hey, now; new posters
Should have encouragement, not
A lime-flavoured death!
Especially those that at
First should appear reluctant

Unless, of course, you
Had been intending to boil
His hesitation...

"No, she needs to look
more helpless and vuln'rable.
Also, add more snow."

(this is found haiku:
to meet form, I cut one word -
poetic license.)

Largo's new Athlons
overclocked and heating up;
"Hurry! N33d mor3 sn0w!"

(Dangerous jello
pits test the student in the
Temple of Haiku!)

Posted by: jarrad Dec 30 2001, 03:44 PM
Piro controls fans,
Wrestles monkies to the ground,
Boot to the Monkey?

Jester's haiku (tho
tragic) show promise. Maybe
an untapped talent?

(in other news)

The forum comes to
the rescue as monkeys keep
themselves occupied.


Posted by: Jiu Jitsuka Jan 1 2002, 12:42 AM
we are monkeys true?
largo or piro tamer?
give me banana!

Yum yum in my tum
I try to find a head to
bite. Yuk! Taste like hair!

Too many hours
on webcomic, this one needs
a shower badly

yeeha! Haikus fun!
Jester is welcome to club
can I join club too?


Posted by: Jiu Jitsuka Jan 1 2002, 12:43 AM
Jester violent
come friend, lets attack trainees
see if they worthy

Posted by: Ajax Jan 1 2002, 01:18 AM
Sad monkeys and snow.
An objection, however...
WE ARE NOT MONKEYS!!

Well, some of us aren't.
I know I am more advanced.
Oo oo ee ee ah!

New poets carry
wicked largo-vision shades,
suspicious looks abound.

You're welcome to stay,
but please leave any weapons
with the bartender...


Posted by: Jiu Jitsuka Jan 1 2002, 02:32 PM
bartender enough
room not, mail toys to Largo
now happy I join

pleasant place to be
I rewrite siganature now
so fellows know me

I did not think that,
writting haikus required,
bad grammar, me wrong ?

Posted by: Jiu Jitsuka Jan 1 2002, 03:25 PM
haikus are poems
grammar refractions sometimes
fit the lines the best

Posted by: Samwise415 Jan 1 2002, 07:43 PM
go monkey monkey
monkey monkey monkey go
banana monkey

Posted by: Tom Holloway Jan 1 2002, 07:55 PM
(first time try here, but here goes)

Oo ah Oo ah ah
unfortunately it's true
look! we are crazy


Posted by: mademoiselle Jan 2 2002, 02:44 AM
Haiku pwns j00 all
But I just don't feel inspir'd
I think I'll just watch

Nevertheless, friends,
Just be simian, and proud.
You were in MT!

Posted by: OracleOfTangent Jan 7 2002, 11:54 AM
Thousand forum apes
All banging on their keyboards
May yet type meaning.

Or, barring meaning,
These many MT monkeys
Could type Shakespeare scripts.


Posted by: Jiu Jitsuka Jan 7 2002, 04:38 PM
infinate monkeys
on infinate typer things!
we make some good stuff!
