a kaiku

So, I coined this hybrid word a month or so ago as an example of the humour I indulge in (the one that invites both smiles and groans from my unfortunate friends). Here goes (in the style of Merriam-Webster Online)

Main Entry: kai-ku

Pronunciation: 'kI-(")kü

Function: noun

Inflected Form(s): plural kaiku

Etymology: Desi

Date: 2002
: an unnecessary, amateur, incongruous unrhymed verse form of personal origin based on the Japanese haiku form which comprises three lines containing usually 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively; a kaiku need follow only the syllable count.

An example:
A house, a wife, car and dog

for everything else there's Mastercard
