Best haiku ending?
It's so "And I'm like, haiku."
I give you five stars.

I'd better convert
Christ comes to AppleNova!
Oh, it's Chris T? Oops.

(If that haiku were a softer world comic, the mouseover text would read "damn. converted for nothing!")

and i guess i've known it all along / the truth is, you have to be soft to be strong

Writing haiku is
hard, constantly looking up
the dictionary.

Much better to
read others haiku,
appreciated.

Spoiler (click to toggle):
I think I suck at reading the pronunciation guide in the dictionary.

If it's any consolation, pronunciation guides in dictionaries are a pain in the ass for pretty much everybody, so no worries there. I think the only word in the sum of my existence that I've actually learned how to pronounce from a dictionary is crêpe, and that was only after much hardship and despair. Which is totally unfair to crêpes, which are, of course, sweet or savory filled pancakes.

look for a haiku

3 syllables

[edit]
The internets say I am wrong and it is hai-ku so I will amend my earlier post to be 5 syllables.

Know what I'm doing.

I made our new member a theme song.

Na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
SEX MASTER! (wah wah)

It's sort of to the tune of "Rock Lobster," but totally not.

Daylight savings time
is a massive load of crap.
Internal clock off.

Spent all night coding
custom Minecraft editor.
Results promising.

Eclipse still a turd.
Defaults suck and need tweaks for
usability.

No you can't have it.
Server-side inventory?
Now I control it!

What about the new
items you can't "/give" yourself?
Not a problem now.

Update! He went out,
But now he is staring at
Me through the window.

This makes me wish I
had a badass boyfriend. This,
And BJ Tuesdays.

Run and hide in room!

I am a huge nerd.
Also a geek, and a dork.
It's the trifecta.
