One of the best conversations I've had on KoL chat:

private to Foicite: Although I do want to start a petition to get an Iambic Pentametre Dungeon
Foicite (private): That would be tricky.
private to Foicite:Yeah, Iambic Pentametre isn't quite as common as haikus or limericks
Foicite (private): Or easy.
private to Foicite: it depends... it's quite conversational, especially in english.
Foicite (private): I guess... it could be, yes.
private to Foicite: most of Shakespeare's plays involve it at some point
private to Foicite: By the looks of it, it seemed just like a game to him, just to see if he could do it.
Foicite (private): Indeed.
Foicite (private): Well, Shakespeare existed a long time before video games. What else was he going to do?
private to Foicite: Well, if he'd known about the Japanese, he might have written some of his stuff in haikus
Foicite (private): That would've been interesting.
private to Foicite: I don't think anyone would have taken him seriously if it he went for Limericks :)
private to Foicite: true. Although Hamlet in Limerick form would be interesting.
private to Foicite: The famous speech about the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune would sound very different
Foicite (private): My outrageous fortune blows. / To suffer slings and arrows. / It takes but one knife / to finish my life. / Tis it nobler? No one knows.
private to Foicite: My hat goes off to you!
Foicite (private): I kinda wish I could've come up with something better than "blows", though.


So much fun.

And, off the top of my head, Ophelia's crazy speech:

Ophelia, quite out of her mind,
Stark raving, Laertes did find,
For love of Hamlet
His sister's upset
That she's been so badly maligned

Thought and remembrance she entwines
With fennel and sweet columbine
Rue with a difference
Daisies for their scents
But violets all whithered you'll find.

I have a haiku!

I hate brocolli
And think it totally sucks
Why is it not meat?

It's not mine, it's Deadpool's from Marvel Ultimate Alliance. But it's funny.
