Have you ever found yourself in need of a haiku fast? Or have you ever wanted to show off to all your friends your haiku writing skills? Well now you can, with no need of any creativity or effort.
Introducing the all-new "Handheld Random Hai!-ku Poetry Generator", or HRHPG. This awesome piece of electronic
equipment fits in your palm, with an easy to read LCD display. All you have to do is turn it on, press the Hai!-Ku button, and this little baby randomly generates some of the best poetry Japan has to offer (in English).
The device comes preloaded with hundreds of thousands of nouns, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, prepositions, and all the other types of words only English majors care about. When you generate a Haiku, the device takes random words and puts them into a specific format (kind of like an adlib) and pops out on the screen. Never again will you be the least creative beatnik out of your group of beatnik friends. Beatniks, and hippies, all around the world will be happy to own one, or ten!

Might court-martial you for this:
Not an august start!
||Oh, all right, we're having fun, so have a bun anyway :)
||That's quite a mouthful:
Doesn't really scan.
