Mark this date in your history books, folks. With the exception of one capitalization error, I think joey just posted his first statement without any mispelled words. (assuming you're old enough for that, joey.)

OK, OK. I'm giving joey a pass on "wanna" and he did forget the '.' at the end of the second sentence, but I'm operating under the precept that you have to reward progress when it presents itself.

I am not so kind. Redemption not forthcoming. I stand resolute.

I expected nothing less of you, Brian. You are a man of high standards -- which is why your dedication to haiku just flummoxes me no end.
Top
Posted by Brian A. Reed (+6068) 12 years ago
You forgot something. Haiku is capitalized. Please do not forget.

Steve - it could be worse. I could post more fake band names. Be thankful I haven't.

Oh, why the hell not! Here is one: Barren von Twapp. And the Mushroom Prints.

When you write haiku in Japanese and limit it to analogies between the human experience and nature, let me know and maybe THEN I'll cap it for you...

jennifer - Thank you for confirming what I suspected might be the case. Kudos to your brother!

I just thought maybe the Webmaster had gagged joey's account so he would have more time to work on his spelling and grammar skills , and as a result joey created a new ID as "joeyh".

Spell, yes. Capitalize or punctuate, not so much.

Brian, it's Sam Hill, not sam hell. Your bad.

Both are acceptable, Wendy. I choose to go with "Sam Hell" because I prefer it over "Sam Hill." I'd suggest to pick your battles, but if you don't believe me, try Googling "Sam Hell" or click on one of the links below:

The urban dictionary is hardly an authority. It generally just reports whatever's out there. People around here say "dill" for "deal" and "sell" for "sale". That doesn't mean it's correct. It seems to me that Sam Hell would not be correct because the whole point of saying Hill is to avoid saying Hell. The Hell version no longer functions as a euphemism and makes the whole phrase superfluous. Therefore I shall ignore it. So there, .

Posted by Brian A. Reed (+6068) 12 years ago
Go with the second link if the first displeases you so.

The main point is that I didn't make up the phrase "Sam Hell." Others use it.

Sam Hill, Sam Hell - who the sam hell cares?

Jennifer - That's a cop-out answer. I was "only 14" once, too. I knew how to spell, capitalize and punctuate, having attended grade school.

To borrow a phrase of Wendy's, joey (lowercase) is an annoyning one-act morpion (two syllables). He - joey (lowercase) - only does it to be a tool (and its novelty has worn thin).

What are you saying Brian???? You no like Joey??? You no like T ?
Or do you just want to get drunk and shoot at the empty bottle?


T - It's my way of saying that joey (lowercase) gives me a headache for which the only prescription calls for alcohol and firearms.

Brian, I love "sweet mother of butter"! What a great phrase. I may even use it myself.

Glad you like it, Wendy.

Immature answer: Well, duh!

Slightly-less immature (or slightly more mature) answer: Whether or not joey (lowercase) is a kid or an adult is beside the point. I'm perfectly aware that joey (lowercase) very well might be an adult or a even a kid playing a tiresome game with the rest of us. Regardless of what age he is or what is intentions are, he's annoying. His age has no effect on my response to him. If he decides to put on the big boy pants, I'll treat him like an adult. The ball is in his court.

joey - maybe you haven't noticed it yet, but being annoying is NOT a reason to stop posting here. Hellbells, Brian annoys just about everybody, but hardly anybody would want him to stop posting. Right guys? Uh, guys? C'mon guys... surely SOMEbody will speak up for Brian???

Seriously, I agree with Brian that your intentional misspellings are getting tiresome - actually, they always were. But you have as much right to be here as anyone else. Have at it, Pal... Who knows, maybe you'll even learn how to spell

It's OK Joey. You're not the only person in the world that has what is called a learning disability. My son has the same one. He spells phonetically (is that a correct spelling Brian?) For example: He spells "once" upon a time...."wons" upon a time. He spells words how they sound....And by the way....he just graduated High School with a 3.12 GPA. It took a lot of really hard work and a lot of frustration, ecspecially when he was younger. Just do the best you can....before you know it, you'll be out spelling all of us!!!!!! Right everyone???

Brian - I'll grant that when you Annoy, it is definitely with a captial A. But I will not grant a capital "H" to what you foist upon us as haiku. It's good to know what your strengths really are, Pal. Now you can make the most of them!

joey - OK, I now believe you are real and that your misspellings aren't concocted just to Annoy us (although there have been a few that have truly begged credulity). So I hope you keep on posting, but I also hope that you will take the advice of Brian and others here who have related stories of how they overcame dyslexia and other learning disabilities. Being able to spell perfectly isn't an absolute necessity for success, but having better spelling skills than you currently do will certainly make that road a little smoother for you.

THEN LOOK IT UP!!! Hells bells, joey (lowercase)! Quit being content to be an unlearned lazy-ass.

There's no excuse for being apathetic, joey (lowercase). The fact that you're perfectly content to be less than you could be if you just gave a rat's ass is what truly bugs me. There are plenty of words I don't know how to spell. But when I choose to use them in a post, I look them up to make sure that I have them spelled correctly. I don't revel in my stupidity. It's not hard if you care, joey (lowercase).

Too easy ...

I may be very wrong, but I believe I've "earned my bones" on here to have the right to post some (admittedly) silly haiku (lowercase). I fully realize the limitations of my "poetry." I do it because it's fun, silly and makes me (and maybe two or three other people laugh) - not because I think I'm the second coming of Geoffrey Chaucer.

Brian,

I am absolutely convinced that you are indeed the second coming of Geoffrey Chaucer - that is, assuming he came the first time and wasn't just some imaginary lollard (hmmmm... that sounds dirty now that I've typed it, but I didn't mean it that way! ). Here, let me put it this way:

Avoid carbuncles and boils
Wicked theives and other foils
Like Jim the Gargoyle

Just follow the path
And let go your wretched wrath
you'll find your warm Bath

Take pen back in hand
Like Chaucer's Wife you will land
Where legends are grand

Because....

In penning Haiku
Nobody compares to you
For haiku du-du!
Top
Posted by Brian A. Reed (+6068) 12 years ago
joey (lowercase) - Spelling may not be the easiest thing in the world, but neither is it the most difficult. Far from it. It may take you a little longer to spell correctly, but it's not rocket science or brain surgery (or even rocket surgery). It's not even flying. All it requires is the willingness to take your time to do it right.

To quote Dr. Thomas Fuller: "All things are difficult before they are easy," and "Bad excuses are worse than none."

Steve - assuming you're a fan of Geoffrey Chaucer and what you posted was a compliment, thanks!

Brian -

Reading Chaucer always brings me joy,
His writing is like a new toy,

He's much wilder than his milder peer,
otherwise known as William Shakespeare.

And like Chaucer and you, Mr. Reed,
Who has become MC.com's own screed,

My love for parody knows no end
So Haiku/haiku on, my friend.

No.

I was surprised to learn that Chaucer was contemporus with Lollardry - for some reason, I had thought that this was a later movement. See, I learn something new every day...
