In 5, 4, 3, 2...1

Some of you might have spent Thanksgiving evening in a heated discussion over politics. Some of you might have spent the afternoon snoozing on your aunt's shag carpet.

My brother and I spent a good bit of the afternoon debating if Garth's observation in Wayne's World was, in fact, a haiku.

The quote from the movie:
Garth: Does this seem weird to anybody else?  I mean, we're looking down on Wayne's basement....only, that's not Wayne's basement.  Isn't that weird?
Wayne: Garth!  That's a haiku!

Here's the haiku version:
Does this seem weird guys?
We're looking at Wayne's basement
But not his basement.

Ten thirty this evening finds me laughing myself silly at Wayne's World, once again, all in the interests of poetic integrity.  Leaving no stone unturned in the quest for further education, my friends.

ha ha ha.... I just had to share. When all was said & done, and we figured out what he said wasn't really a haiku, then I caught myself thinking, oh man, then I can't blog about it. And THEN I decided what I could blog about was just how random I really am. :) So much for the highbrow WASP Thanksgiving. hah.
