Celebrity Haiku Volume # 89: Teddy Ballgame Edition

As the distinguished Senator from Massachusetts prepares to throw out the first pitch at Fenway Park last week, he ponders his long, illustrious career and coins the latest of our celebrity haiku. He is spartan in his implementation of the ancient Japanes verse and us Mass-holes love him for it.

Where the Hell am I

Who the Hell is the Black guy?

Mary Jo Ka-who?!

Poem of the Week, Vol.#46

(An old Chestnut. Reminds me of the time I spent in New Orleans)
The Irish Pig

'Twas an evening in November,
As I very well remember,
I was strolling down the street in drunken pride,
But my knees were all aflutter,
So I landed in the gutter,
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.

Yes I lay there in the gutter
Thinking thoughts I could not utter,
When a colleen passing by did softly say,
"Ye can tell a man that boozes
By the company he chooses"
-At that the pig got up and walked away.
-Anonymous (a famous Irish author)
