Here’s something random to distract you on your next coffee break. As many people are no doubt familiar, when you play a song on an iPod it displays the following information arranged in three lines:
Title of song
Title of album
On the way to work this morning with my colleague Dave, I noticed that his iPod was displaying
The Hand That Feeds
Nine Inch Nails
and after briefly wondering whether those nine inch nails had teeth or were being fed them, I set off thinking about other songs which spelled out phrases and sentences in the same way. They seem surprisingly uncommon – besides a few dubious constructions (“I Do Edie Brickell And The New Bohemians Shooting Rubber Bands At The Stars”) the only good one I could come up with was “In A Graveyard Rufus Wainwright Poses”.
Any others? Three million bonus points if you can find one that fits 5-7-5 syllable haiku form.
