found ku

Just for fun: each of these was essentially found and written down by me with only minor tweaking.
At the Guggenheim:
museum warning:
this exhibit
contains nudity
NY Times: A letter responded to a story on the use of music in the operating room, which mentioned a distinguished surgeon whose preference was Edith Piaf:
going under . . .
Edith Piaf
regrets nothing
Massachusetts license plate (They're very well educated up there):
vanity plate
on a BMW:
Heard on the car radio:
nursing home jingle:
these are the days
you'll remember

Thank you polona. Don't you find that writing haiku does a lot to sharpen your eye?

You need to do more of this! (3 was my favorite)

They're fun to do, Andrew, but, since I don't make them up, they have to be there to be found. I'll keep my eye open. As polona says, writing haiku trains us in that.

love the found ku. Need to go out and see if I can find some of my own, but I expect it takes a trained eye to spot these.

No training necessary, mikaelah. Give it a try.
