I FOUND IT! AKA Khartoum's most brilliant post ever

    For those of you who weren't around on Sept. 15, 2004 at 1:02:42 a.m....well, congratulations. But it means you also missed this post, which has always been my favorite. I knew I printed it out, and I just found it when I was looking for a wayward credit card.

    I present, for all to enjoy, Khartoum's haiku version of the Growing Pains theme, from the thread "Show me that smile again, Tracey Gold."

    Any person who comes anywhere near that level of genius ... well, good luck.

    It's like the holy grail of haikus.

    Is that you damning with faint praise, Headbutt? :D

    No no. I, like many of us, could only remember how good it was without actually remembering how it went. My recollection of past posts is not very good. I'm like the anti-Boom when it comes to looking up something said months or years ago. But I do remember this one.

    Dunno, but would much rather see Tracey Gold -- bad DWI mug shot and all -- than Khartoum...

    Hey, screw you, I'm better looking than a plastered Tracey Gold! And just as easy!

    Great. Now here comes Dooley to bring up a three-year-old argument that the whole haiku is flawed because he thinks "smile" is one syllable ("smyl"), while I say it like an east-coaster, "Smy-uhl." Thanks a lot, Eye-Jag. ;)

    I actually meant to mention the "controversy" in my first post.

    I say "smy-uhl" too.

    One syllable. That is all.

    To be fair, it was two syllibles in the song.
