Randy Cohen Writes Haiku


The News Distillery is a live news-comedy game show hosted by Faith Salie, CBS Sunday Morning contributor and star of Planet Green’s Treehugger TV. Contestants face off in a no-holds barred competition to be the funniest, fastest, best-informed and possibly prettiest news junkie in New York. Plus there’s air conditioning (free) and beer (nominal charge). The next one happens July 29.

One of the current event games played at The News Distillery is “news haiku.” Each contestant has to write a haiku about a news event that week. For example, here are some haikus from last Thursday’s show.

From Chuck Nice, who penned A Haiku to BP:

Tell me a secret.
How much black stuff was leaking?
You lying bastard!

The New York Times‘ Randy Cohen, better known as The Ethicist, submitted the following haiku:

Declares: Tea Party racist,
Water wet, fire hot.

Please leave your own current event haikus here in the comments. We will choose one lucky submitter for glorious recognition across all our social networks. As well, when referring to you on said networks, your name will always be proceeded by the label “Haiku Champ.”
