Five syllables first,
Seven syllables second;
Five syllables last.

There was an old man of Verdun?

There was an old man of Peru,
Whose Limericks all end at line two.

And the last one in that series is about the Emperor Nero, but I can never remember how it goes...

[ There was an old man
Of Peru, whose lim'ricks all
Look'd like haiku. He

Said with a laugh, "I
Cut them in half, the pay is
Much better for two."

is the defining example of a joke that only works written down. ]

Also, there's a Verdun in Montreal, a rather oppressively characterless suburb in the southwest of the island, which makes seeing references to Verdun in such places as Patrick O'Brian a bit disconcerting. Though not so much as the huge overlap between placenames in Paris and Montreal is when reading Revolutionary-period Dumas. Three chapters about a riot at Place Vendome when I just got off the Metro there and so forth. It's a simple amusement, but then I am a simple creature.

It strikes me that, if anyone should be doing ameliorating "emuling" (and that 'cutesy' mispelling is majorly VOMWORTHY as it does nothing to add to meaning except say "look at me, how cutesy I am) it isn't me.

"Oopsie?" Another phrase that substitutes faux-cutesyism for personality or anything meaningful.

If a newspaper said "Pete Docherty and girlfriend Kate Moss", whose girlfriend would you infer was meant?

(I don't have a girlfriend! Owen is All Man. ;-)

The day newspapers start reporting the news in haiku is the day I, um, something.

You saw the haiku, or the LJ-celebrities?

And it was FANTASTIC! Bruno's can really cook blue steak. Or rather, not cook, blue steak, except that sounds wrong.
