Defiance against social standards
...or the Metacartoonist's counting skills. Wondering which. From the page provided by vivtek.com upon a 404 error:

Now, due to the layout and theme of this little poem, I am going to assume that it is an attempt at haiku. Purists may say that the lines of haiku must be five syllables, followed by seven, followed by 5. However, acceptable haikus have been made in the form 3-5-3, and I have even seen one that was 1-3-1. However, 5-7-3 seems a little odd. Almost as if the metacartoonist (I assume it was he who wrote this) began a 5-7-5 haiku, then got confused somewhere around the middle. So is this an error, perhaps caused by evil gremlin saboteurs, or is the Metacartoonist experimenting with a revoluttionary new haiku style?
