Higby, you should keep publishing this until someone figures this out.

Offer a prize or something. Like a Mayor Sam t-shirt, or something.

Yep. That'll motivate 'em.

I have to hand it to ya. This is a clever one.

Seriously, was he ever? He hosts the green-eyed monster!

And no, DAVE, this doesn't refer to your eye-color. Not everything in LA blogging refers to YOU.

You're still good, though.

Above find the translation Yahoo's babal fish translator gives for the haiku posted.

Realizing of course posting German is most likely a slam for Mailander's critique of the entre of haikus to the MS blog, could you maybe check the German or better yet, give an English version?

Hello 5:03,

It is not German.

It has nothing to do with anything about Joe Mailander.

Thank you for playing.

I nominate 503 for Ass Clown of the Month for thinking that this is about Mailander.

I think I've got it, but don't want to spoil it. Yes, Higby should definitely keep posting this until someone gets it.

Hint: It doesn't have a damn thing to do with this blog, or any of the usual suspects.

Peeps, I don't know who the guy in the portrait is, but I imagine it holds the key.

To 9:50pm, this does not look like joeseph mailander.

5:01 AM,

What are you talking about???

NEVERMIND. Anyway, whoever you are, let me just say that YOU are clever. More clever than I could ever hope to be. People like you. Everyone hates me. And you are special. And by the way, Zuma Dogg doesn't have to be clever. He just has to show up three times a week and repeat what people tell him.

Hello? Is this thing on? Does anyone recognize the gentleman in the portrait?

5:03 -- it's not German. Again, please refer to the portrait and the artist's/subject's (it's a self portrait) nationality, which, is not German. Don't recognize the artist? I'll give you a hint: his last name rhymes with YOU BLOW.

Check the German, indeed! GAWD.

HaikuLA -- awesome.

I am very impressed!

We can pick this up next week (wink, wink).

Thanks for the support.

zd, you are clever, too.

the sombrero, the accents, the rap style of speech, are all great ways of capturing attention.

I think 501 was just having some fun with you. It reads that way to me.

You're still the top dog, dogg! You just need to recognize that sometimes people are having fun with you. Not making fun OF you.

How about whoever has enough time to analyze and comment on the comments, use some of that analysis and commentary where it counts...

AT A COUNCIL MEETING OR PUBLIC HEARING.

OR GO START A BLOG AND START BLOGGING ABOUT ISSUES THAT AFFECT THE CITY.

A bunch of you can sit here and comment about me and the comments about me...then go out into the forest and whisper public comment into a tree knot.

Hello 2:24,

Shake off that rust and there'll be a breakthrough!

Look for a hint or two. Perhaps you should have married an island girl rather than a Dutch girl.

We can follow up on this next week, if I still have the desire to keep posting haikus!

Wow Mr. Zuma Dogg, what side of the van did you get up on today?

People ARE participating in whatever way they CAN.

And here's a hint for you: you do not set the rules for how others participate. Coming HERE of all places and ranting isn't helping your case.

As for analzying comment upon comment, that's exactly what YOU are doing! There are people here who actually support you. Your personal attacks, like the ones you hurl at the city council members, are growing tired, bro.

Stick to what you're good at.

ZD, the haiku broad did set up a blog that talks about city issues. But you only attacked it when you thought you were being made fun of.

You had no idea what the reference was, otherwise, you'd have had a chuckle about it.

Instead, you attacked. Now you site there in the library and complain that no one is starting a blog.

That's called talking out of both sides of your mouth. Or, it's called being jealous that someone, like you, has a gimmick.

She's selling her thing, Higby sells his, and you sell yours.

Now shut up and stop treating everyone here the way you treat everybody in city hall.

Have you even considered that not everyone here agrees with you, or is here for anything other than some amusement or basic information?

Have you spent a single moment even considering that?

YOU DUMMY...WHO SAID I ATTACKED THE HAKUI BLOG??? I THINK I SAID I LIKED IT IN A POST ON THIS BLOG TODAY.

And if YOU are participating beyond analyzing comments on this blog, then you don't have anything to worry about, crybaby.

For some reason, Mayor Sam, the same OLD LOSER is trying to start something up. This time between me and the Hikau person???

I'm not against the Haiku's, just the idiot-moron who for some reason thinks I am posting secret hate comments about the haikus out of jealousy.

Mayor Sam can confirm, i'm sure, my first posting in a long time was this morning.

So why is some loser sitting here dragging me into it?

IF YOU LOSERS WHO SIT HERE AND COMMENT ON ME KNEW WHAT THE "F" WAS HAPPENING AT CITY HALL, YOU WOULD BE THERE -- OR YOU WOULD BE BLOGGING ABOUT IT BEYOND COMPARING ZD TO HAIKU PERSON, (Fred Sandford Voice): YOU BIG DUMMY!

Stop trying to analyze and critique and explain what the meaningless comments about someone meant to say about ZD...IT MEANS NOTHING!

GET A LIFE LOSER!

NO SAME OLD LOSER, I HAVEN'T. I'M TOO BUSY TAKING IN NEW INFORMATION FROM THE STREETS AND BREAKING STORIES A YEAR BEFORE LA WEEKLY OR LA TIMES, IF THEY COVER IT AT ALL,

OR TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW I AM GOING TO MAKE IT TO THE NEXT COUNCIL MEETING FOR PUBLIC COMMENT,

OR AM TRYING TO CATCH UP ON POSTING ALL THE NEW INFO ON MY BLOG.

But you won't be doing any of that because you are scolding me.

NO, I DIDN'T CONSIDER A THING YOU SAID. PUBLIC COMMENT IS CLOSED ON THE ISSUE OF THE HURT AND JEALOUS FEELINGS OF THE SAME OLD CRYBABY LOSER WHO CANNOT ACCEPT CERTAIN THINGS. (Like the name recognition level of ZD in LA County vs THEM.)

Do a "limited research poll" loser.

zd, why do you care about name recognition?

on another string (later than this one), you referred to someone, I forgot who, as "shameless and desperate."

but if your motives are purely to help the public, why do you care about name recognition.

for what it's worth, I'm one of those who likes you. but I'd like to know why you care about name recognition?

you're upset about being scolded?

you're on the verge of making wendy greuel cry, and giving la bong a massive coronary.

i'm not saying it's not funny. but you can't then turn around and complain about being scolded.

So Homeless Dave Elliott thinks he can come on Mayor Sam's blog and call him an old loser?

No worries. Homeless Dave is this close to being arrested and banned from City Hall for life.

8:39: Make my day. And all but a handful of rude losers who get off on forcing people who've gotten to where they are by getting elected or hired in a competitive process, instead of just showing up and misusing public comment time to trashtalk and slander them, will heave a HUGE COLLECTIVE ROUND OF APPLAUSE. The smelly mutt even boasts about how many minutes a week he drags City Hall into the toilet, and acts like he's going to get a reward. Jail is more like it -- free room and board. Hey, zuma: I heard they even have apple pie every Wednesday! And hot showers!

Name recognition is important if i put my name on a ballot. because if i want to do as much as i can to fix this shit, then being mayor would allow me to do as much as i can do. i know villar is gonna win. but who knows...when you walk a day in MY shoes, it seems like maybe i have a shot of really rocking the boat.

AND, if you see the new half hour show i just posted on my blog tonight (half hour show airing on Time Warner this week), it would be fun to be in the debate.

I heard an audio clip on the radio Friday of the mayor...he said, "Ah" -- EVERY OTHER WORD...NO EXAGGERATION!!! The guy cannot even speak a complete sentence without saying, "Ah" EVERY OTHER WORD. LISTEN NEXT TIME YOU HEAR HIM.

Anyway, name recognition is important if i wanna run for mayor.

hey, it's haikula here. I just wanna clear the air that as far as my friend & I are concerned, zuma's a good dood.

forget about the city hall corruption. all of these subjects would be very boring without him. picking on him because he lives in his van, or is sometimes a goober (for the purpose of getting public comment attention), just ain't right.

it's schoolyard bullying to pick on the guy. if you don't dig it, don't watch. we don't challenge his motives at all.

we don't have whole lot of time to do the haikuing, but if anyone has any subject requests, let us know and we'll see if we can come up with something. maybe we can post a haiku subject (like Jack Weiss) and see what people come up with. But it'd be cool if you actually try. It's a very easy format.

If that's a stupid idea, let us know and we'll just skip it.

11:35: Haiku-guy/gal: Yes, It's a stupid idea, but don't let that stop you. Especially since you love the dogg as a "good dood."

Clearly, you're not a taxpayer or anyone with legit business at city hall, or who wants Councilmembers and staff to spend their time and OUR taxpayer dollars (which is a LOT counting up the cost per MINUTE for them all to sit through Council meetings, complete with their staffs, security and Clerks and lawyers etc. etc.) instead of having to sit politely listening to lowlife scum of the earth trashing and slandering them, as an exercise of free speech. Frankly, I don't see how the "good dood" hasn't been banned for life, Eric and crew must just be bending over WAAAY too far backwards in the interests of openness. Which has been abused and gone way too far.

You egging him on are either using him for your own political purposes to slime opponents, and/or the kind of lousy student who's sit at the back of the room always goofing off and egging on the class clown with ADD for acting up and tormenting the teacher. But at least the teacher would have thrown the idiot out right away, so the rest of the students can learn and so everyone's "tuition" wouldn't be wasted. Too bad you never grew up.

1002, I will put my balance sheet up agaist yours any day of the week. Especially since yours is obviously based on the income level of a civil servant.

Don't assume what you don't really know.

For instance:

Obviously, you also don't understand the colloquial use of "good dood," or the creativity that I use to evoke empathy for the guy.

What else is obvious is that YOU're someone who has ulterior motives at city hall. In fact, aren't you employed by the city or closely tied to someone who does business with it?

What exactly are YOU doing spending your Monday morning time HERE on Mayor Sam of all places?

Finally, it's always humorous how city hallers are shaken up by the presence of a homeless guy getting up there to speak for a few minutes.

Shouldn't you be more scared of things like Alarcon, who tried to rezone his fiance's property, and then stopped when caught with his hand in the cookie jar?

And as for ADD, shouldn't you be more concerned that a certain city council member has it, and how THAT affects city hall business?

Where's your concern about that?

Talk about someone who drags down a meeting. Just look to the right side of the room, my friend.

Then look in the mirror.

I'm not even going to respond to your further posts on this string, because all you care about is vitriol.

Now this is what I call celebrating diversity! Dutch- how cute! Here-- I'll tie it all together-- Janice Hahn is of Dutch decent. Right? Cuz isn't "Hahn" a Dutch name? Come to think of it, "Greuel" is a Dutch name too! Like the artist "Greuze." Hmm... why am I thinking about Hans Brinker right about now? Anyway, ZD-- yes yes yes-- keep hammering away at 'em-- MAKE that Greuel bitch weep tears of Agamemnon-- make Smith and Weiss ball, too!
