What is a lifeku?

A lifeku is a haiku about daily life. For those who are unfamiliar with haiku, it is a form of Japanese poetry usually about nature, "profound," and formatted in 3 lines of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. Feel free to check out some famous haikus if you still don't get it.

Comment. It'll make the popular kids like you.

Today's lifeku is about a subject that has long since annoyed me... Namely the gross misusage of the English language. I could go off on a rant about the French and how it's impossible to order "one cookies" but I'll save that for later and instead focus on the myriad of idiots that you and I both went to high school with:

Suburban slang kid
Conversate is not a word
Edumacation

PS: For those of you who are stupid idiots just waiting to tell me "misusage" isn't a word, you can check the dictionary definition right here. Snap.

"Misuage"...is that like the French version of a massage?

I guess you didn't see the part where I specifically linked to the dictionary definition of misuages because I knew idiots like yourself would say that...

you're not reading his comment properly, you were too quick to point out the word and then bash him, not noticing that you missed out an s the second and most important time...

Daughter said...

Touche, Jordana. Touche.

I would like to point out that in this case "him" would be my friend Jerry, who I was not bashing, since he also insults me. Will correct another one of my glorious typos, though.

Thank you, Jordana for clarifying my comment. Miscommunication is often the cause of conflict, and granted this is a minor case, but it's still a good lesson to learn. Rachel, I love you and I'm gonna tell Chones that you deserve a warm bubble bath and a misuage...

Daughter said...

Aren't you glad that random girls come to your defense Jerry?

I made a livejournal post back around lets say... Thursday March 15th, 2007ish that said something along the lines of,"Conversate isn't a word you dumb bitch." It was about my best friend who fucked my boyfriend and for some reason wanted me to 'conversate' with her still.

Thank you for this haiku.
Thank you edumacation.
