Thanks to Octopunk’s list-making last week, Mr. AC and I were able to review prior haiku topics with ease. Time to mix things up, we thought, and provide a universal and hopefully entertaining topic. We realize the term “guilty pleasure” is misleading, since we of the blog don’t really believe in guilt. “Guilty pleasure” in this context is shorthand for “you know it’s bad or bad for you, and you love it anyway.” If you’re on the fence about fessing up, that’s a good sign. Shame and embarrassment are the hallmarks of a true guilty pleasure. Of course, Mr. AC and I can’t expect anyone to expose their tender, guilt-ridden underbellies if we don’t, so we’ll contribute a handful of haikus in solidarity.
Needless to say, the content of the guilty pleasure itself, as well as haiku craft, will factor into our decision, so let it all hang out there- if you dare.
