With the Oscars coming up, I’ve been going to see as many Best Picture nominees as I can squeeze into my weekends.   film director

Here’s some haiku for a few of them. If you’re not familiar with haiku, it’s a form of poetry consisting of 3 lines, with 5 syllables in the first and third lines and 7 syllables in the second.

Les Mis — lovesick girl
The guy’s into someone else
Get a clue — move on

Silver Lining plot:
Bradley Cooper runs amok
Finds girl, settles down

Lincoln — such a mensch
Wish I could go back in time
And, well — you can guess

Zero Dark Thirty
It’s hard to have a sex life
While waterboarding

Argo — fake movie
Got those people the hell out
Ben with a beard — nice!

In an interview
A sense of humor is good
Sex jokes, not so much

Be yourself,  sort of
But not your fetishist side
No staring at feet

If you swear a lot
Don’t “f*ck” in an interview
Three blocks down’s okay

If you’re cynical
Try to curb the sarcasm
The job’s not Snark Queen

Are you religious?
Don’t bless the interviewer
Unless she sneezes

Weirdness can be cool
Just stay out of Crazy Town
Until you get home


If you’re not familiar with haiku, it’s a form of poetry that consists of 3 lines, with 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 in the third. Here’re some about job interviews:

The manager asks
Did you used to be a blonde?
Illegal question

The phone interview –
I called the CEO Jane
“Uh, it’s Jim.” Oh crap.

Tough group interview
They fire questions at me
Don’t quit now, pit stick

Meeting with the boss
Focus on accomplishments
Ignore his foul breath

Maintain eye contact
Talk mutual benefits
Oops – looked at his crotch


Preparing is key
Think accomplishment stories
Don’t forget breath mints

A group interview
Look everyone in the eye
Or at least the nose

Speak confidently
Don’t jiggle your leg non-stop
They’ll think you’re crazy

Well, that one’s over
Send thank-yous to everyone
On to the next one!

The first interview
arriving in his jockstrap
Whew! only a dream.

Don’t try to impress
give and take works best
kind of like good sex.

Job search is stressful
make sure you take time to chill
or you’ll pop your cork.
