Upon sensing an increase in illumination caused by parting of the lips, this special tooth plays an audio recording of a short, vague, very metaphorical sounding poem.

Hopefully the conversee will interpret this as an intelligent response to their question, and be impressed with your sagacity.

Probably they will be so impressed with your wit and demeanor they will walk away to ponder your words, and never talk to you again.

"Blast the evil planet
Death to the alien race
Watch them die" [imaginality, Jul 06 2007]


       The warm air wafting
As the oven door opens
Your bun awaits you
imaginality, Jun 29 2007

       The sagacity!
Now I have fallen in love.
But just with that tooth.
bungston, Jun 29 2007

       Oh bugger, not a
nother round of these bloody
haikus. I hate them.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 29 2007

       You wish you were me
For - behold! - I can talk with-
out moving my lips.
hippo, Jul 02 2007

Not only that but,
I can even talk without
[wagster] moving his...
wagster, Jul 02 2007

       Our hippo with wags
acting as ventriliquist,
Can you picture it?
RayfordSteele, Jul 03 2007

       Pedantics speak   

       Annotations abound   

       I am halfbaking today

       //acting as ventriliquist//
I must point out the
mis-spelling: ventrilOquist

It comes from Latin
Meaning to speak from
one's belly, oddly enough.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 05 2007

       Oh, and by the way,
[Elhigh], you meant "ped-
ants", not "pedantics", surely?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 05 2007

       What's the "spid" reference all about?   

       Oh god, now I've messed
up the flow of these poems.
Could we do sonnets?
wagster, Jul 05 2007

       When you need a syllable, you need a syllable.   

       You say PEDant, I say pedANT, Let's call the whole thing off.
elhigh, Jul 05 2007

       Oh oooooh, if we sing in Broadway songs then we must rhyme,
And oooooh, if we ever rhyme then we must meter in tiiiiime!
wagster, Jul 05 2007

       I thought haikus were
five-five-seven, not
five-seven-five. Bugger it.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 05 2007

       first and second lines
have five syllables
you're right MaxwellBuchanan
gnomethang, Jul 06 2007

       A point of wonder:
the Haiku structure
is based on two prime numbers.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 06 2007

       There's more choice these days
But still, haiku are mostly
In 5-7-5
imaginality, Jul 06 2007

       The number of lines
And the total syllables
Are also prime. Weird.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 06 2007

       first there is Haiku
then there is Lowku
finally there is Noku
