Haiku Friday: The Opposite Sex

Watch them as they bounce
Not just good food at Hooters
Pass me one more beer

Today is our first themed haiku day! I know, we should have given you more notice, and we will in the future. But when Jennifer found out about Neil’s plan for this Friday to be “Write Like the Opposite Sex Day,” we both agreed it was perfect. If you want to join in, please do, but don’t feel like you have to. We’re still happy to read haiku about any topic.

I realize my haiku today is the epitome of stereotype. You can blame my husband – I asked him what a guy would write a haiku about, and this is what he gave me. And just think – he’s an artsy-type of guy. Imagine what your average NASCAR-dad would suggest!

(Still want to see something girly? Pop over to Mommy’s Must Haves to see my review of tiny*prints invitations!)

To play along for Haiku Friday, follow these steps:

1. Write your own haiku on your blog. You can do one or many, all following a theme or just random. What’s a haiku, you ask? Click here.

2. Sign the Mister Linky below or at Jennifer’s blog with your name and the link to your haiku post (the specific post URL, not your generic blog URL). DON’T sign unless you have a haiku this week. If you need help with this, contact Jennifer or myself.

3. Pick up a Haiku Friday button to display on the post or in your sidebar by clicking the button at the top.

REMEMBER: Do not post your link unless you have a haiku this week! We will delete any links without haiku!

  1. Oh my, I apologize for not following the theme…I was not able to play last Friday…though I was here hours ago, I only got the part where you were planning…anyway, I will make it up next time!

    Happy Friday!

    P.S. I usually do haiku when I am a bit emotional and I’m flooded with too much words…so I try to simplify them through haiku. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. DOH! I forgot about checking for a theme and I already posted mine.

    Yours is too funny!!

  3. K. I’m a total loser. Sorry I didn’t see the theme topic before posting ๐Ÿ™ I’ll try again next week. If my brain hasn’t turned into mush.

    ROFL at your Haiku! Very well done ๐Ÿ™‚ I do love their wings though ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Your man ku rocks!
    Far better than my effort.
    You are the master.

  5. Oh well, I’ll have to check for a theme next time! What a fun theme.

  6. Oh thank goodness others didn’t follow the theme… I also tend to do like mariposa said, simplifying deep “stuff” sometimes through haiku.

    This was pretty darn funny, though, for a theme, and yours rocks!

  7. Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) says:

    I’m a turd because I didn’t do the theme! But I had something I really needed to write about.

    Have you ever heard of the version of Hooters made for women? The mascot is a rooster. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. I did mine in a theme, but it’s not quite as bouncy. hehe.

  9. I actually do like Hooters wings.

  10. Boobs, sex, cars…why is it that’s all they think about? LOL Great one!

  11. I love the theme. And your ‘ku was great. My husband always feels a bit guilty when he goes to Hooters for lunch with the guys.

  12. Me too … had another topic today but I still like the idea of having themes as well.

  13. My husband insists the wings at Hooters are good. Yeah. Right!

  14. Head Gaggler says:

    Uh oh, a theme?? Whoops. I will do better next time. Yours is great and cool theme!

  15. Sorry – I’ve been a bit out of the loop. Read about the theme too late. Maybe I’ll publish a second haiku later – or not. ;D

    Your’s is so good, I’m not sure I can enter into the mind of a man quite that well.

  16. I didnt follow the theme either, but it’s a good one!

  17. I didn’t do a theme! Sorry, I was in a rush this morning and missed it totally!!

  18. I saw Neil’s post via Is There Any Mommmy Out There’s blog and I swear before I even visited here, I left a haiku on his comment page!

  19. Theme? Obviously I skipped reading a memo I shouldn’t have.

    Sorry. Next time for sure.

  20. Although hey! Mind kinda fits….

  21. Condo Blues says:

    I haiku’ed about my boy dog. Does that count? ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Tennis on my mind!
    Didnโ€™t know about the theme
    for this week โ€ฆ Oh my

    such a good one too ;–)
    Maybe next time Iโ€™ll be more
    organized (or not)?

    Canโ€™t believe itโ€™s almost 3pm (here in So Cal) and Iโ€™m just now posting my 2nd Haiku. This day has gotten away from me totally โ€ฆ so I may be visiting throughout the weekend because Iโ€™m way behind on everything. Happy Friday to all!!!
    Hugs and blessings,

    A man is a man, doesn’t matter if they are artsy fartsy or a grease monkey caveman like mine.

    Although it’s not the bounce for Ug, it’s the legs… and not the chicken ones either!

  24. Charline says:

    Love the idea of theme. Wish I had known sooner. I didn’t join you in the theme this time. Oh, well! Love yours.

  25. Hahaha…too funny!
