You mean, none of you read the last Appliantology newsletter? Or seen the Haikus for Appliance Repair page? Or my archive of appliance repair haiku posts? Or even the haiku that I had already posted in the haiku forum to kick things off? I dunno what to say. Ouch? :java:

How 'bout I say it in haiku:

[align=center]Appliance haikus??

Three short lines: 5-7-5.

Last line: Satori.

Just messin' wif y'all. But your point is well taken-- an introduction to the appliance haiku forum seems appropriate since it's so, uh, freakin' weird. Added. Domo!
