Wedding Haikus

Greetings! Just wanted to report that we survived the wedding and our one week honeymoon in Banff National Park!

Since this is a writing blog, I'll share this little tidbit from our wedding. Jeff and I decided that the usual "clinking glasses to kiss" tradition was cute, but kind of boring. So we proposed the following modification: before clinking their glasses, the guests had to take the microphone and either 1) compliment Livia or 2) make fun of Jeff -- bonus points if they did both in haiku form.

People came up with some hilarious and rather well written haikus. For some reason, I found this one particularly amusing:

Jeffrey is funny--
looking. Ha ha ha ha ha.
Ha ha ha ha ha!

What do you think? Total copout, or stroke of genius?


  1. Stroke of genius, of course! But I might be a little biased ;)

  2. i think stroke of genius in a special way :)
