    Off goes your torso
    I love that animation
    Yuch, got blood on me

    (PS: I'm sorry if I sometimes fail to abide to the 5:7:5 rule, but sometimes I don't know how many of them are in one word... sometimes...)

    It's not that hard

    "Off goes your torso - 5
    I love that animation - 8
    Yuch, got blood on me - 5"

    It's not a vowel-count, it's a syllable count, which is important as not all vowels are pronounced and some are thus not syllables. But some people her apparently think that pressing the enter key twice means you have a haiku. Jeez, people.

    It does not need batteries
    Still useless, though

    Except "love" is one syllable because the e is not pronounced.
    "I(1) love(2) that(3) a(4)-ni(5)-ma(6)-tion(7)" is seven, not eight.

    You can stretch syllables or add new ones if it works, but that's only what's called poetic freedom.

    Heh, funny since that's exactly what I said, but then failed to apply it myself.

    Luv, yeah.

    That's enough of that, though. This thread should not have haiku-less posts.

    I know I have to use syllables, but I don't always know exactly how many syllables are in a certain word.

    Anyhoo...

    You could have cheated by pronouncing it "Al-ien" rather than "Al-i-en", btw.

    That's what my point was.

    That said, less nazi-ing, more haiku-ing!

    Sadly I suck at haikus if they don't contain the words "death" and "sadness" so I shall not write any further.

    Since I can't remember for the life of me what Vagrants were, I'll just do a quick side-haiku, not even Fallout related.

    Ashmo can't haiku
    Without some death or sadness
    He argues instead

    Flame me if neccessary, but please don't continue this or else the thread will go even fruther away from being a Fallout haiku thread.

    Vagrants never learn,
    To find a good profession,
    That's why they are poor.

    Hmm, never tried a haiku before.

    All you need to do
    to right a good haiku thus
    is watch BBC

    Never would have guessed
    richest 'bums' I ever met
    vagrants or tourists?

    EDIT:

    Curse that darn Duckman
    distracted by internet
    you made me edit

    Only good Hubo
    is a dead Hubo of course
    so they cannot sue

    I hate the Hubos,
    Thieves, conmen, sodomisers,
    Great experience!

    Edit:

    I did not know that,
    What we write had to be in,
    Haiku, but it is fun!

    My apologies,
    Quietfanatic, accept
    My forgiveness please?!
