While many poems beat around the bush for multiple stanzas, the funniest haikus on the internet get right to the point.

Relying on a mere 17 syllables to function, joke haikus require only a minimal amount of attention for a maximum amount of entertainment. For those who find Shakespeare too wordy or Thoreau too pretentious, punny haikus are the perfect mixture of artfulness and amusement. Thankfully, the internet has no shortage of funny poems, and that means more haikus than there are stanzas in The Divine Comedyr/Haikus offers a whole catalog for people to browse, and books such as Nerd Haiku show off clever ways to incorporate geek humor into the art form.
