Jim Behrle, you're smart
and funny but you sure do
suck at picking teams.

Please note I assumed that your surname requires two syllables.

The sociolinguist in me loves the Pittsburgh haiku. (As a Wisconsinite, however, I am baffled by your anti-Green Bay bias.)

@Sunny Schomaker Agreed. but any proper burgher will tell you it's "yinz." Like zubaz.

@Sunny Schomaker I know! To reject Green Bay is one problem, to like Denver is another entirely.

These still don't rhyme.

It ain't a haiku until someone's branded a fatass.

Bittersweet (#765)

Glad to know it's not just the entire female population of New England who hates Gisele.
