When a reader sends a particularly poetic message to the Jezebel inbox, some of the writers will notice the message's linguistic symmetry and gleefully announce, "Haiku!" Truthfully, most of these messages aren't perfect haikus (or "hokkus" for all those Ezra Pound fascists lurking in the comments), but they are very haiku-like, which is exciting for two very obvious (but not so obvious that I'll forgo naming them) reasons: 1) even the banal can be made interesting with the right configuration of punctuation and spacing and 2) unintentional poetry immediately neutralizes the gravity of any particular sentiment. Be honest — if someone accidently rhymes something (the paparazzi didn't follow Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on their diplomatic trip to Benghazi) you're way more likely to dismiss that person for frivolity.
