5 Free, Funny(ish) Thanksgiving Haikus

Most people know that haikus are Japanese poems that consist of a series of three phrases arranged in a pattern of five, seven and five syllables, respectively – but fewer people are familiar with <em>Thanksgiving haikus</em>.</br></br>The phrase itself – <em>Thanksgiving haiku</em> – represents a key element of the traditional art: juxtaposing two ideas that normally would not go together. Add a reference to the season (inherent in the word <em>Thanksgiving</em>, anyway) and you’ve got the perfect recipe for an authentic haiku.</br></br>Here are a few more, just for you, to share with your friends and family this Thanksgiving:</br></br><strong>1. Combo Meal </strong></br></br>Turkey and stuffing</br>tastes way better with gravy.</br>That’s just common sense.</br></br><strong>2. Curmudgeon </strong></br></br>Don’t jinx Thanksgiving –</br>Let grandpa have the clicker.</br>You’ll be happier.</br></br><strong>3. Medicine Woman </strong></br></br>Aunt Dee’s “medicine”</br>is in fact high-test whiskey.</br>She’s got mad dance moves.</br></br><strong>4. Go Long, Slowly</strong></br></br>Playing touch football</br>is a lot harder to do</br>on a full stomach.</br></br><strong>5. Guestroom Coat Pile</strong></br></br>Eating lots of food</br>and passing out somewhere warm:</br>Thanksgiving heaven.</br></br>We hope these gave you a little smile, and that you have a whole lot more reasons to smile during your Thanksgiving holiday.
