The Daily HaiTaku

Well, congrats to Nexi. Not only did he correctly guess that Friday's HaiTaku was Battletoads, but his reasoning was spectacular. Thank you Nexi for a great post!

Today's HaiTaku is brough to you from ME! Good luck everyone!

A bird is on fire. Green door, red door. Dolla dolla bill. Numbers on the keys.

This is HaiTaku. We write Haikus about old video games and leave it you to guess what game we're talking about. If you want to submit a Haiku feel free. Send it here!


    I know the answer, but refuse to give it on the grounds that this ain't even close to a haiku. For shame!

      That second line makes my brain hurt.....

      With lines like that, Mark has a bright future as a rap artist.

      Maybe his Scottish pronunciation of "dolla" only has 1 syllable.

    I'm feeling Conker's Bad Fur Day for some reason.

      A bird is on fire. - Dukes Ride as a plane is often called a bird
      Green door, red door. Dolla dolla bill. - the doors for the access cards plus you give strippers money
      Numbers on the keys. - Numbers are on the access card which are like keys

    Wait what? I was correct? This is a most unexpected result as I had no faith in it being the right answer.

      lol yeah man. your explanation was the exact same one i gave mark in the original email i sent him. check it:

      “Spring frog is dead” relates to the bike stage, jumping over the obstacles and failing each time
      “Darkening music sings” game over screen
      “the item through the window” ragequitting and throwing the controller/game/console out the window as a result.
