I have a friend in Shanghai on business right now so I'm getting a kick from the weather report. Hope everyone is battened down!

Oh, and +1 for the headline, would recommend subby on Angie's List.

A valiant effort, came up one syllable short in the middle. :)

Might I suggest "Eastern Seaboard of China Hit"?

I don't do haiku, it is way too difficult.

this is how the end begins. a major storm goes through, and turns over some rocks or knocks down a bunch of trees. then either some fancy new plague gets unleashed, or godzilla pops out of the sea.

China is one of those countries where people are so crammed together that everything is a major disaster.

Dinner plate dropped in China, thousands killed.

I wonder if mothers with female children try to get their kids into the storm?

That would imply that China has a Western Seaboard.

How come here in USA we have an Eastern Seaboard but no one ever refers to a Western Seaboard?

2012-08-08 10:14:59 AM  
He didn't mess up; Haikui's three syllables, depending on count. But I totally get that maybe it's supposed to be only two. So if that's that case, anyone who added "is" has the right answer.

/love me some haiku
//hell, it broke my lurking streak
///how is everyone?

Of course you did. Everyone always counts on the filter. No one is pwned by it.

How do you pronounce Haikui? Is it three syllables or two? I don't know how to pronounce the word.
If it is three, (hi-koo-ee) then simply moving the word "strikes' to the second line makes it a perfect haiku.

'Hai' is pronounced like 'hi', and 'kui' like 'kway'. Two syllables.
